In the RadGrid1_ItemDataBound I have the following piece of code for displaying the number of records returned in the grids footer. 


GridBoundColumn 
recordCount = RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetColumn("FieldOne") as GridBoundColumn;  
recordCount.Aggregate = GridAggregateFunction.Count;  
recordCount.FooterText = "<strong style='Font-size:10pt;color:red;'>Rows Returned: "
   

However, when I click to export the results to a PDF and only a PDF the error below shows up. The Excel and Word work just fine.  The style tag I added is causing this issue.... :(

Invalid XHTML. RadGrid has to render correct XHTML in order to export to PDF.
Parse error:
The 'strong' start tag on line 697 does not match the end tag of 'td'. Line 697, position 84.
at line:
<td>&nbsp;</td><td><strong style='Font-size:10pt;color:red;'>Rows Returned: 10</td><td>&nbsp;</td><td>&........

My question is how can I apply a style to the number of rows returned in my footer so the PDF export does not throw an error?  Also, is there a better place to show the number or rows returned?

Thank You!

Hello,

I attached a sample project to this post. It illustrates how to apply custom styles to the PDF file.

I hope this helps.

Hello Mike,

You can hide the column explicitly by setting its Visible property to false prior to the export operation (call to the ExportToPDF() method of the master table). Review the information/code snippets from the help topic pointed below for further details:

http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/grdexporttipstricks.html (paragraph 'Exporting GridButtonColumn/GridTemplateColumn/GridHyperLinkColumn data')

But it doesn't seem to be working for me and the GridTemplateColumn.  I guess that I could assign a DataField from the stored procedure not being using in the grid to be the key that would allow me to use FindByDataField and that works.

if I am missing something on the GridTemplateColumn and hiding it another way let me know, ok! 

 

 

<telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="Actions"....   
 

Grid1.MasterTableView.Columns.FindByUniqueName("Actions").Visible = false

 I am also getting the following error on this code during my Intem_DataBound
