Hi,

I'm exporting my KendoGrid to PDF with a Template. I need to pass variables to the template like this:

template: kendo.template($("#kendo-grid-pdf-template").html())({ CUSTOMERNAME: cust.FullName, CUSTOMERID: cust.Id})

 

This is the template:

<script id="kendo-grid-pdf-template" type="text/x-kendo-template">
    <div class="page-template-pdf">
        <div class="header-pdf">
            #: CUSTOMERNAME #, Customer ID: #: CUSTOMERID#
        </div>
    </div>
</script>

 

The Problem:

PDF generation fails because "pageNum" and "totalPages" are undefined. This only happens when I pass my custom parameters. How do I pass the pageNum and totalPages parameters that are required? It work when I pass it like this:

template: kendo.template($("#kendo-grid-pdf-template").html())({ CUSTOMERNAME: cust.FullName, CUSTOMERID: cust.Id, pageNum: "?", totalPages: "?"})

 

but where do I get the right values?

Hello Franz,

Adding an additional data to the template is not supported as this will override the template context, that is why the pageNum is undefined as it is overwritten by the passed object.

Could you please provide more information about the scenario and a runnable example, so I can investigate and check if I can offer a different supported approach to achieve the desired result?

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Stefan

Hello Stefan,

Today I noticed that my drawDOM function only generates 1 page in the PDF. I Need every page of the grid in my PDF Export.

I set "allPages: true", but to no avail. Can you please tell me what is wrong with my Approach?

window.exportPdf = function () {
 
            kendo.drawing.drawDOM("#leistungsanzeigeGrid",
            {
                multiPage: true,
                allPages: true,
                landscape: true,
                repeatHeaders: true,
                paperSize: ["500mm", "700mm"],
                margin: { top: "2.5cm", right: "0cm", bottom: "1cm", left: "0cm" },
                template: kendo.template($("#kendo-grid-pdf-template").html())(
                {
                    pageNum: "",
                    totalPages: "",
                    KDNR: person.Kundennummer,
                    NAME: person.DisplayFullName,
                    GEB: formatJsonDate(person.Geburtsdatum),
                    SEX: identifySex(person.Geschlecht),
                    SSN: person.DisplaySvnr
                })
            }).then(function (group) {
                kendo.drawing.pdf.saveAs(group, "test.pdf");
            });
        }

Hello Franz,

From the provided code I noticed that kendo.drawing.drawDOM used instead of the pdf property of the Grid. Please have in mind that kendo.drawing.drawDOM will export the DOM elements currently visible on the page.

The Grid has a built-in support for pdf export, please check the following demo demonstrating how to use the Grid pdf export:

http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/grid/pdf-export

Also, please check all of the available options for PDF export available through the Grid' API:

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/grid#configuration-pdf
