I have a requirement to display to seperate RadGrids, which I can do successfully (https://www.telerik.com/forums/displaying-the-same-grid-on-two-different-pages)

But now I need to be able to export both to PDF & Excel from the CommandItemTemplate LinkButton. This process works of course for one of the Grids but not both. How do I get that CommandItem to fire for both my grids?

Investigating further, I'm finding that once the PDF export command is clicked, in the "ItemDataBound" Event, the sender is correctly executing both Grids, but the "GridItemEventArgs" event is only providing the data items for the second grid, Dim dataItem As GridDataItem = TryCast(e.Item, GridDataItem)

Why wouldn't the "e.Item" for each sender be processed?

Hi Chuck,

When in the command item of a Grid, the ExportToPdf or ExportToExcel button is clicked, a command (see Command Reference) will be fired specifically for this grid hence it will be exported.

As to exporting two RadGrids simultaneously: Unfortunately, sending two separate files to the client is not possible within a single HTTP request. In case you want to export both Grids in a single file please check out and try the approach in our Export Multiple Grids demo.

Please let me know if any further questions come up.

Kind regards,
Doncho
