I'm trying to use the ExportToPdf() method in the RadEditor control, and it doesn't actually put out any PDF. At first, I was getting errors about valid XHTML, but I'm converting to XHTML now before invoking the method and no longer get any errors. I just don't get anything. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Walt

Hi Walt,

The export to pdf functionality is still in development and it does not render some tags.

Please, replace the full html content with this one and see whether the ExportToPdf method will render the content properly:

        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            //add content to the editor
            RadEditor1.Content = "<span style='color:red;'>This is a test.</span>";
            //export to pdf
            RadEditor1.ExportToPdf();
        }

If you still experience any problems with the export to pdf functionality my suggestion is to use another third party HTML to PDF convertion tool. You can see this Kb article for more information:
