Hello Andrea,

Thank you for writing.

Currently our export to PDF feature does not support page customization and we have not planned these features. Nevertheless, if more people request the same, we will consider improving our API.

You could try using the PageTitle property of ExportToPDF to mimic the repetition of the header cells on each page. The PageTitle property is a string property so you will have to experiment a bit to align the text with the columns.

Should you have other questions, I would be glad to assist.

Regards,
Jack

I think too, that this Feature - page customization - makes sense.

"You could try using the PageTitle property of ExportToPDF to mimic the repetition of the header cells on each page. The PageTitle property is a string property so you will have to experiment a bit to align the text with the columns."

This can not be the solution.

Hi There,

We are using version 2015.1.225.40. When gridview is exported to PDF using either SpreadExport or ExportToPDF ,can we put page number on each PDF documents generated, i..e Page 1 of 3 , Page 2 of 3 , Page 3 of 3.

Thanks in Anticipation

Hi Sanjay,

Thank you for writing.

Neither of the providers mentioned supports page numbering. However, you can use our PdfProcessing functionality and print the page number. Here is a small sample:
RadFixedDocument document;
PdfFormatProvider provider = new PdfFormatProvider();
using (Stream stream = File.OpenRead("..\\..\\text.pdf"))
{
    document = provider.Import(stream);
 
    foreach (RadFixedPage page in document.Pages)
    {
        FixedContentEditor editor = new FixedContentEditor(page);
        editor.Position.Translate(page.Size.Width / 2, page.Size.Height - 50);
         
        int pageNum = document.Pages.IndexOf(page)+1;
        editor.DrawText(pageNum + " of " + document.Pages.Count);
    }
 
}
 
using (Stream output = File.OpenWrite("..\\..\\text.pdf"))
{
    provider.Export(document, output);
}

More information regarding RadPdfProcessing is available here: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/pdfprocessing-editing-fixedcontenteditor.html.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Stefan
