Hello,

I'm having problems when exporting RadGrid to PDF. After exporting, the pdf file shows only a part of my grid. Example: if the grid has 20 columns with large width, only 3 or 4 columns appears in the final file. How can i format this grid so that all columns appears in the pdf file?

My code is something like this:

grid.ExportSettings.IgnorePaging = false;
grid.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = true;
grid.ExportSettings.ExportOnlyData = true;
grid.ExportSettings.FileName = "test";
//this was a try to do what i want... :(
grid.ExportSettings.Pdf.PageHeight = Unit.Parse("162mm");
grid.ExportSettings.Pdf.PageWidth = Unit.Parse("600mm");

Is that possible?
Thanks.

Hello Eliaquim,

A possible approach would be to change the font size on export:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e) 
    if (e.Item is GridDataItem || e.Item is GridHeaderItem) 
    { 
        foreach (TableCell cell in e.Item.Cells) 
        { 
            cell.Style["font-family"] = "Arial Narrow"
            cell.Style["font-size"] = "6pt"
        } 
    }
