Hello,

In my project, we have to provide pdf export for all of our grids. When they are small, there is no real problems. But when we have like 10 or more columns and multiple pages, it seems we can't extract all the columns and the export will only show like 6 columns and only the first page...

Is there another way to display all columns without changing scaling (making text unreadable) or the format size ? (We don't want to print in A0 either...)

 

Thanks in advance !

Hello, Josselin,

The Kendo UI Grid PDF export uses a page breaking algorithm as if it were a text document (top to bottom) and any content that does not fit horizontally gets truncated.

There are a couple of alternatives:

1) Change the columns widths for the export only with CSS

https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/knowledge-base/grid-pdf-export-change-column-widths

2) Use the PDF export spreadsheet algorithm which works side to side  

https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/framework/drawing/pdf-tabular-data

Let me know in case you have questions regarding either approach.

Kind Regards,
