Hello folks, 

First off - I know this question (or one very similar) was answered in 2011 via this post called "ExportToPDF footer show on last page RadGrid" as referenced here Footer shows up in every page when export to PDF but the answer page is now 404. So I thought I would ask it again.

Is there a way to get the footer that RadGrid displays at the bottom of the grid on the web page to ONLY show up on the last page of the PDF when exporting to PDF? 

I have a RadGrid with grouping, each group has a footer with subtotals, the entire grid has a footer with a an overall total.  I tried setting ShowFooter="false" so that I could append a customer footer to the RAWHTML on export but the grid on screen still shows (and exports) all of the footers including the grid level total.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi Gregory,

You can use the OnPdfExporting event for your requirement and try the below code snippet.
 
C#:
protected void RadGrid_PdfExporting(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridPdfExportingArgs e)
{
   string str = "your footer here";
   e.RawHTML = e.RawHTML + str;   
}

Thanks,
Princy

I guess I am a little confused. It looks like your solution there adds a footer, but does it stop it being generator on every single page in the PDF? Because that is the goal.

Here is the code from the code behind (VB)

Protected Sub btnExportToPDF_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btnExportToPDF.Click
    isExport = True
 
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.ExportOnlyData = True
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.IgnorePaging = True  ' True exports the entire dataset
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = True
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.FileName = DateTime.Now.Year.ToString() & DateTime.Now.Month.ToString().PadLeft(2, "0"c) & DateTime.Now.Day.ToString().PadLeft(2, "0"c) _
                                        & DateTime.Now.Hour.ToString().PadLeft(2, "0"c) & DateTime.Now.Minute.ToString().PadLeft(2, "0"c) & DateTime.Now.Second.ToString().PadLeft(2, "0"c) _
                                        & "_" _
                                        & DateTime.Now.Millisecond.ToString()
 
    ' Set to landscape size
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.Pdf.PaperSize = Telerik.Web.UI.GridPaperSize.Letter
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.Pdf.PageHeight = Unit.Parse("215mm")
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.Pdf.PageWidth = Unit.Parse("279mm")
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.Pdf.PageLeftMargin = Unit.Parse("13mm")
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.Pdf.PageRightMargin = Unit.Parse("13mm")
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.Pdf.PageTopMargin = Unit.Parse("13mm")
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.Pdf.PageBottomMargin = Unit.Parse("13mm")
 
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.Pdf.AllowAdd = False
    RadGrid1.ExportSettings.Pdf.AllowModify = False
 
 
    ' Hide the checkbox boolean field during export
    If showSelectionCheckboxes Then
        RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetColumn("SelectionCheckbox").Visible = False
    End If
 
    RadGrid1.MasterTableView.ExportToPdf()
End Sub
 
Protected Sub RadGrid1_ItemCreated(sender As Object, e As Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs)
    If isExport Then
        ApplyStylesToPDFExport(e.Item)
    End If
End Sub
 
Private Sub ApplyStylesToPDFExport(ByRef item As Telerik.Web.UI.GridItem)
    If TypeOf item Is Telerik.Web.UI.GridHeaderItem Then
        item.Style("background-color") = "#D0D0D0"
        item.Style("font-family") = "Arial Narrow"
        item.Style("font-size") = "6pt"
        item.Style("text-align") = "center"
    End If
 
    If TypeOf item Is Telerik.Web.UI.GridDataItem Then      ' GridDataItem is a row
 
        ' Set row-level styles
        item.Style("background-color") = If(item.ItemType = Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemType.AlternatingItem, "#F0F0F0", "#E0E0E0")
 
        ' Iterate through and set cell-level styles
        Dim dataItem As Telerik.Web.UI.GridDataItem = TryCast(item, Telerik.Web.UI.GridDataItem)
        For Each col As Telerik.Web.UI.GridColumn In RadGrid1.MasterTableView.Columns
            If col.ItemStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Right Then
                dataItem(col).Style("text-align") = "right"
            End If
        Next
        item.Style("font-family") = "Arial Narrow"
        item.Style("font-size") = "6px"
    End If
 
    If TypeOf item Is Telerik.Web.UI.GridFooterItem Then
        item.Style("background-color") = "#D0D0D0"
        item.Style("font-family") = "Arial Narrow"
        item.Style("font-size") = "6pt"
        item.Style("text-align") = "center"
        item.Style("font-weight") = "bold"
    End If
End Sub

Hi Frank,

Please try the following code snippet. The text comes only at the last page of PDF export. I have attached a screenshot of the output obtained.

ASPX:
<telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" AllowPaging="true" AllowSorting="true">
    <MasterTableView DataKeyNames="OrderID">
        <Columns>
            <telerik:GridBoundColumn UniqueName="OrderID" DataField="OrderID" HeaderText="OrderID">
            </telerik:GridBoundColumn>
            <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ShipCity" HeaderText="ShipCity" UniqueName="ShipCity">
            </telerik:GridBoundColumn>
            <telerik:GridBoundColumn UniqueName="CustomerID" DataField="CustomerID" HeaderText="CustomerID">
            </telerik:GridBoundColumn>
            <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ShipName" HeaderText="ShipName" UniqueName="ShipName">
            </telerik:GridBoundColumn>
        </Columns>
    </MasterTableView>
</telerik:RadGrid>
<asp:Button ID="btnPDFExport" runat="server" Text="Export to PDF" />

VB:
Private isExport As Boolean = False
   Protected Sub btnPDFExport_Click(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnPDFExport.Click
       isExport = True
       RadGrid1.ExportSettings.ExportOnlyData = True

Thank you Princy. That worked for getting rid of the footer on every page and also adding the text at the very end. What I need to do now is to replace that text with a calculated value based on values in the grid's data. I am not exactly sure how to do that. Would you point me in the right direction? Thank you so much.

Hi Frank,

Please try the following code snippet to access values of columns.

VB:
Private counter As Integer = 0
Protected Sub RadGrid1_ItemCreated(sender As Object, e As Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs) Handles RadGrid1.ItemCreated
    If isExport Then
      For Each dataItem As GridDataItem In RadGrid1.Items
        If Condition Then
    counter = counter + Convert.ToInt16(dataItem("UnitPrice").Text)
        End If
      Next
   End If
End Sub
Protected Sub RadGrid1_PdfExporting(sender As Object, e As Telerik.Web.UI.GridPdfExportingArgs) Handles RadGrid1.PdfExporting
  e.RawHTML = e.RawHTML + counter
End Sub

Thanks,
Princy

i had the same problem...but no way...counter is always bigger than my  Sum maybe because i must use filter ...or maybe u wrote

if condition then and i dont know what condition i had to write. it work only with one record  but with more than one the number in e.rawHTML is always greater. it change any time depending my filter..i dont uderstand why he sum more records.

 If RadGrid1.IsExporting Then
            For Each dataItem As GridDataItem In RadGrid1.Items

                counter = counter + Convert.ToInt16(dataItem("quant").Text)

            Next
        End If

 Protected Sub RadGrid1_PdfExporting(sender As Object, e As Telerik.Web.UI.GridPdfExportingArgs) Handles RadGrid1.PdfExporting
        '*************************************
              e.RawHTML = Convert.ToString(e.RawHTML) & counter
        '****************************

Hello Maurizio,

 

To narrow down the issue I would suggest you try the following steps:

1. Try to use Convert.ToDecimal instead of ConverToInt16. The higher than expected sum can be caused by an eventual overflow of the format used.

2. Have in mind the effect of the IgnorePaging property in the RadGrid ExportSettings. If it is disabled (default), the export is made only on the currently visible items on the page.

If the issue remains, you can open a formal support thread and send us a very basic runnable web site to demonstrate the issue you are facing.

 

Kind regards,
Doncho

i resolved in this way : in RadGrid1_ItemDataBound event:

Dim item As GridDataItem = TryCast(e.Item, GridDataItem)
            ''****************************************************************
             Dim Valore As Double = item("valore").Text
             totalUnitPrice += Valore

after in RadGrid1_PdfExporting :

Dim str As String = "TOTALE VALORE :    "
        e.RawHTML = e.RawHTML + str
        e.RawHTML = Convert.ToString(e.RawHTML) & totalUnitPrice

BUT it work only in absence of filtering. better than nothing. Still remain one problem, i would like change page in pdf  for new group...

best regards

Hello Maurizio,

 

You can achieve this requirement using one of these options:

1. RadGrid:
https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/grid/functionality/exporting/export-formats/pdf-export#page-break

2. RadClientExportManager:
https://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/client-export-manager/functionality/pdf-multi-page-export/defaultcs.aspx?isNew=true&_ga=2.24976249.299614649.1587883461-1667381012.1451455707

I hope this will prove helpful.

Hello Maurizio,

 

This can be achieved using the page-break functionality:

1. For the grid approach:
https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/grid/functionality/exporting/export-formats/pdf-export#page-break

Here is a sample:
https://www.telerik.com/forums/pdf-export-and-page-break

2. For the ClientExportManager:

You just need to set the PageBreakSelector property:
https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/clientexportmanager/functionality/pdf-multi-page-export

In your case it would be something like:

PageBreakSelector=".rgGroupHeader"

                        <GroupByFields>
                            <telerik:GridGroupByField FieldName="descr_struttura"></telerik:GridGroupByField>
                        </GroupByFields>
                        <SelectFields>
                            <telerik:GridGroupByField FieldName="descr_struttura" HeaderText="STRUTTURA "></telerik:GridGroupByField>
                            <telerik:GridGroupByField FieldName="valore" HeaderText="         Tot. valore per STRUTTURA "

Hi Maurizio, 

 

I've prepared a sample RadGrid web site to demonstrate how you can achieve this requirement.

You can run the Web site by following these steps:
1. Open Visual Studio
2. File menu
3. Open option
4. Select Web site and target the web site folder.
5. Include a Bin folder with the Telerik dll assemblies.
