Hello

I tried to export the Radgrid data, but the exported PDF was not in the proper format. The columns and the items are not aligned properly.

Can you please tell me any sample application for the same? Or do I need to change my settings while exporting it to the excel?

They are seen like following..

                          Column1                         Column2

row1col1Data                              row1col1Data
row2col2Data                              row2col2Data

Below is my sample code for your reference:

Me.grdview.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = True
Me.grdview.ExportSettings.ExportOnlyData = True
Me.grdview.ExportSettings.IgnorePaging = True
Me.grdview.ExportSettings.FileName ="sampleData"
grdview.MasterTableView.ExportToPdf()

Regards,
Vinit

Hello Shinu,

Thanks for your reply.

The solution works great. Thanks !

But if the data in the columns are more than the column width, then I wrap the text to the next line.

Also on the page I am having the rad drop downs. I am not able to select them after the ExportToPDF was done.

Regards,

Vinit

Hi Vinit,

I am not sure whether the following  KB article will guide you. Just have a look and see if it helps.

Hello Shinu

Thanks for your reply.

This is not related the problem which I have mentioned over here.

I have two issues after the Export To PDF functionality works.

These are ...

1. I am not able to select the dropdowns on the page.
2. In the PDF, if the column data is  long , then  this data was displayed in the next column and because of this, the PDF is not seen properly.

Does any one came across such issue.

Regards,

Vinit

Hi vinit,

In case you export the grid to PDF by disabling the ajax as discussed in the KB article pointed by Shinu, you will need to use the workaround discussed there (applicable for RadComboBox or other navigation controls) in order to make it operational again.

Concerning the exported document formatting:
In order to customize the look and feel of the PDF document, tweak with the PDF export options listed under the Description tab of the relevant online example of RadGrid:
