I am using the RADGRID and grouped data.  When I export to a styled excel format it looks wonderful... however when I export it out to PDF or WORD its not all that wonderful.  In fact it is kind of ugly.  Is there any way to apply some sort of style to PDF and WORD exports from grouped data thats contained in the grid?
Something that is indented?

thanks
Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Here is a KB article which explains how to export styles in PDF. Go through it and see whether it helps.

I put in a break point in:

RadGrid1_ItemCreated

and

RadGrid1_ItemCommand

The break points never fired.  Do I have to set some property on the RadGrid component to alert it to use these methods?  if so I cant seem to find where to set them.

I found the events for the methods on the controls property/events.

However after my grid is populated with its grouped data, I click on a button and it fires off 

RadGrid1.MasterTableView.ExportToPdf();


Putting a break point on  RadGrid1_ItemCommand doesnt fire off.  The PDF still comes out looking bland with the data not looking grouped.

looks like:

Dave
Welcome 0 0
Hello 0 0
Mike
Welcome 0 1
Gohome 1 0

when i would like to have it look like

Dave
   welcome 0 0 
   Hello 0 0
Mike
   Welcome 0 1
   Gohome 1 0

We are using the Q1 wp1 version of the controls(just bought it a couple of days ago) 

any thoughts?
