Hi ,

If you want to set the contents into a single page,you can set the PageHeight property of the Pdf.PLease have a look at this documentation which describes about all the properties.
PDF Export

ASPX:
<ExportSettings>
   <Pdf PageHeight="1000px">
   </Pdf>
</ExportSettings>

Thanks,
Princy

Hello,
My item contents do not have fixed heights. All i am sure of is that the vertical space an item will occupy is less than the height of the page so even if i fix a height as you are proposing i would keep running into the same problem.

Hello Chad,

I am afraid that RadGrid does not provides an option to fit the content of the grid in a single page. The only possible solution is to increase the height of the pdf file as Princy's suggestion based on the items in the grid. For instance if a single item has a height 5mm you could increase the size by item number*5. I prepared a small sample and attached it to this thread.

I am afraid that will not solve my problem either.
I am experiencing with iTextSharp and i think i will go with that option. RadGrid's pdf export functionality is too limited for my needs.

thank you

Hello Chad,

We are aware about this limitation, but implementation of such feature will lead to a breaking changes in the PDF export which are unacceptable. You could check out the following help article which describes most of the features which are available till now.
