I am using the UI for ASP.NET MVC controls in my application and I need to be able to create PDFs of a view that dynamically loads data.  Is this possible and if so how would I go about doing it?

Hello Stephen,

Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC doesn't yet include a tool capable of generating PDF documents. You can try searching online for a commercial or open source PDF generation library.

What about the Reporting tools?  Would there be no way to integrate those and use a report to generate a pdf?

Hello Stephen,

You can use Telerik Reporting to export report definitions into different formats.

The report should be created with the native reporting items, which can be bound to your custom data via data source components. If the report structure would vary depending on the data, you can build the report programmatically from scratch. The best approach in such scenario is to use the integrated Visual Studio Report Designer and create sample reports, from which you can reuse the code generated in the designer.cs(vb) file.

Finally, the report definition can be displayed in a viewer e.g. the new HTML5 Report Viewer, or exported programmatically.

Let us know if you have any further questions.
