    Hello guys.

    Basically I'm trying to export my grid to PDF and this works just fine simply reading kendo documentation. But when I open this generated PDF, it looks just like a printscreen to me. What I wanna do is change it, use some kind of custom template (e.g html) or something and beautify this.

    I'm only using this lines of code for properly working:

    var grid = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid");

    kendo.drawing.drawDOM($("#grid")).then(function (group) {
        kendo.drawing.pdf.saveAs(group, "test.pdf");


    Is there some way of doing this? (Changing this generated PDF layout)

    Hello, Yan,

    The Grid offers a built-in PDF export which allows certain modifications to be made to the exported document, like a template, a watermark etc:



    Please check all of the built-in options:


    Let me know if additional assistance is needed on this matter.
