Hi.

I would like to align my pdf when exported in such a manner that all string columns are aligned left and numeric columns aligned right.  I have tried many different ways with no such result.  Below is a code snippet of what I am currently using.

private void ApplyStylesToPDFExport(GridItem item)
{
    if (item is GridHeaderItem)
        foreach (TableCell cell in item.Cells)
        {
            cell.Style["font-family"] = "Verdana";
            cell.Style["text-align"] = "Left";
            cell.Style["font-size"] = "12pt";
        }
 
    if (item is GridDataItem)
    {
        item.Style["font-size"] = "12px";
        item.Style["background-color"] = item.ItemType == GridItemType.AlternatingItem ? "#DDDDDD" : "#AAAAAA";
        item.Style["horizontal-align"] = "Right";
    }
 
}

The method is then called in the item_created event.  This code is being used to try align headings to left and data to right with not much success.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards.

Hi Leon,

Please try the following code snippet to align the columns:

C#:
private void ApplyStylesToPDFExport(GridItem item)
{
    if (item is GridHeaderItem)
        foreach (TableCell cell in item.Cells)
        {         
            cell.Style["text-align"] = "middle"; // Header Alignment
        }
    if (item is GridDataItem)
    {    
        GridDataItem dataItem = item as GridDataItem;
        foreach (GridColumn col in RadGrid1.MasterTableView.Columns)
        {
            if (col.DataType == typeof(string))
                dataItem[col].Style["text-align"] = "left"; // String columns to left
            else
                dataItem[col].Style["text-align"] = "right"; // Other column's text to the left
        }          
    }
}

Thanks,
Princy
