Hi,

Is it possible to reformat the data being exported from the Grid?

Basically, I need to change the page layout from being a screen capture, as the PDF export does by default, to a different layout.

Think of a list of names, address, phones that is portrayed in a column layout instead of the row layout with columns that is the Grid default.

Column 1 would have, for example

Name1
Address1
City, state zip1
phone1

Name2
Address2
City, state zip2
phone2

Name3
Address3
City, State, Zip3
Phone3

 

Then, column 2 would have

Name4
Address4
City, State, Zip4
Phone4

And then continuing to the bottom of column2, then starting at the top of Column 3.

Is this possible with the Kendo UI PDF Export? Or maybe another function in the Kendo UI?

Thank you!

Hello, Ken,

You can create a custom DOM structure using the grid's data. Then you can draw it using the drawing api and save it as a pdf with the kendo.saveAs method.

I've created a Dojo and left a couple of comments describing the logic:

Please note that the above is a very basic example, you can style/change the structure and pdf options to suit your expectations.

Hello Georgi,

Thank you for the explanation and Dojo. I think this would be the start of what I need. I'll try it out.

Thank you,
