How to define the paperSize in the onPDFExport function? Currently getting the error unknown paperSize. Variable width is the total width of all of the columns in the grid, and it is not undefined.

Current code:

    function onPDFExport(e) {
        var grid = $("#CustomerOrderYearlyAllGrid").data("kendoGrid");
        var width = 0;
        for (var i = 0; i < this.columns.length; i++) {
            this.autoFitColumn(i);
            width = width + this.columns[i].width;
        }

        debugger;
        var CustomerID = $("#CustomerID").data('kendoDropDownList');
        var selectedCustomerName = CustomerID.text();
        grid.options.pdf.fileName = selectedCustomerName + " Summary (Yearly).pdf";
        grid.options.pdf.paperSize = (width + "px","500px");


    }

Hello Andrew,

 

Thank you for writing to us.

I am afraid it is not possible to achieve this requirement using the current approach. By default, the paperSize is auto which makes the PDF logic to calculate its own size:
https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/grid/configuration/pdf.papersize

If you want to change it depending on some user selection, replace the built-in Export button of the grid with your own Export button.

Then, you will need to use the setOptions() method to change the pageSize:
https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/grid/methods/setoptions

And finally, you can call the saveAsPDF() method:
