Hi,
  I have a problem in viewing text in the PDF file. I have 3 hyperlink controls as the following aspx code sicne my project scenario is like that. In viewing  the text of the controls in Grid has no problem. But in PDF file the position and text has been changed.

 <telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="URL" SortExpression="URL" DataField="URL" GroupByExpression="URL Group By URL" UniqueName="URL" HeaderStyle-Width="52%">  
                            <ItemTemplate>   
                                                                                                          
                               
                                  
                                <asp:HyperLink ID="URL" Text='Title1' runat="server"></asp:HyperLink>                                                                                    
                                <asp:Literal ID="literalUrl1" Text='Title2' runat="server"></asp:Literal> 
                                <asp:Literal ID="literalUrl2" Text='Title3' runat="server"></asp:Literal>                                  
                            </ItemTemplate> 
                        </telerik:GridTemplateColumn>     

Say in simple the above text are ok with grid displayed like Title1,Titll2,Title3
But in PDF file it seems like Title2,title3,Title1 respectively

I dont know what to do to come text as an expected manner

-Thanks

Hi,
      Thanks for your reply, I used the ItemDatabound event to bind the above three link controls
protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)  
        {  
            if ((e.Item.ItemType == GridItemType.AlternatingItem) || (e.Item.ItemType == GridItemType.Item))  
            {  
                HyperLink link1 = (HyperLink)e.Item.FindControl("URL"); // URL  
                // Liternal Controls  
                Literal literalUrl1 = (Literal)e.Item.FindControl("literalUrl1");  
                Literal literalUrl2 = (Literal)e.Item.FindControl("literalUrl2");            
            if (active)  
                {  
                    linkURL.Text = RowView.Row["URL"].ToString();  
                    linkURLlinkURL.Text = linkURL.Text.Replace("/", "%2F");  
                    linkURLlinkURL.Text = linkURL.Text.Replace("+", "%20");  
                    linkURL.Target = "newwin";  
                    linkURL.NavigateUrl = RowView.Row["URL"].ToString();                      
                }  
                else  
                {  
                    literalUrl1.Text = "<span class=\"inactive\">" + RowView.Row["URL"].ToString() + "</span>";  
                }  
                literalUrl2.Text = "<br/><span style=\"font-size:8pt;\">&nbsp;byte size: 21"  ;  
                literalUrl2.Text += ", last modified: " + String.Format("{0:M/d/yyyy}", RowView.Row["LastModified"]) + "</span>";    

But when i try to export the grid the i am not getting the exact text posotion from link controls. Still i am having the same issue.

-Thanks

John,

How do I reproduce this behavior? Can you modify my sample project or provide step-by-step instructions?

Hope it would be helpful to reproduce the behavior

Hello John,

You can sidestep this behavior if you set a default text to the controls in your item template:
<telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="URL" SortExpression="URL" DataField="URL"
    GroupByExpression="URL Group By URL" UniqueName="URL" HeaderStyle-Width="52%">
    <ItemTemplate>
        <asp:HyperLink ID="URL" runat="server" Text=" "></asp:HyperLink>
        <asp:Literal ID="literalUrl1" runat="server" Text=" "></asp:Literal>
        <asp:Literal ID="literalUrl2" runat="server" Text=" "></asp:Literal>
    </ItemTemplate>
</telerik:GridTemplateColumn>

Hello John,

I'm not sure as to why this happens in your scenario, but you can try to insert a table to hold your controls in place:
<table style="width: 500px">
    <colgroup>
        <col />
        <col />
        <col />
    </colgroup>
    <tr>
        <td>
            <asp:HyperLink ID="URL" runat="server" Text=" "></asp:HyperLink>
        </td>
        <td>
            <asp:Literal ID="literalUrl1" runat="server" Text=" "></asp:Literal>
        </td>
        <td>
            <asp:Literal ID="literalUrl2" runat="server" Text=" "></asp:Literal>
        </td>
    </tr>
</table>
