Hello

I currently have an kendo grid with PDF export functionality, I am trying to add in the facilities to add a line header text to the exported PDF and have tried using both a grid header text box and a javascript alert on button click, however when I try to do this either the application tries to export indefinitely, or the header text is not included. Can anyone suggest where I may be going wrong with this?
