    I am using the "Export Grid to PDF" from the Code Library. 

    It works great, but I need to be able to choose which rows to export to PDF, with a checkbox, not the entire grid. 

    I created this checkbox:
    columns.Template(e => e.IsChecked).ClientTemplate("<input type='checkbox' #= IsChecked ? checked='checked':'' # value='#=EmployeeID#' />")
    How can I access this in the controller, where the method to create the export is located?

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Hello Joakim,

    Basically you need to send the selected records to the server from then on the approach remains the same as in the code library.

    Check the attached project, it should give you the idea.

    Hello Joakim,

    Exporting with a third party library tool workflow is always the same. You create button with a href pointing to an action method that based on the state of the Grid will send all the state descriptors to the server. On the server side inside that action method you can create a DataSourceRequest get just those records using ToDataSourceResult() extension method and then use your exporting tool to create the result.

    All those approaches are used in our exporting examples, you can get the idea from there:
