    Hi guys,

    We try to decide which product to use in our next project. (We do not have a chance to use Silverlight/WPF, it will be ASP.Net Ajax controls)

    - In each page we will have charts and grids. In this case,  what do you think the best way of exporting RadChart and RadGrid into the same Excel sheet and PDF is? I know I can't use ExporttoPDF, ExporttoExcel methods with charts/graphs.

    - I've already tried to put charts into grid and export to PDF, it works but I really don't prefer to do that. I can't put all of my charts into grids... (And export to excel does not work in this way I guess...)

    - I don't prefer to use third party ( itextsharp etc.) products either. BUT if it works with RadGrid/RadChart and makes the export much easier, in  that case, I can switch to that...

    I am new to Telerik and really need your thoughts...

    Waiting your replies, thanks,

    Hello Ervin,

    Due to the fact that we do not have a separate exporting product, the only feasible option would be to export the Chart image within the file generated by RadGrid.
    Exporting RadChart to PDF
    That said, it is possible to add custom content to the exported file, meaning that you can add images, generated from charts are not integrated in your RadGrid.

    Best regards,
    the Telerik team
