    I have added  RadPivotGrid to my vb.net page and RadPersistenceManager . I managed to save and load the user current state with the following:

     RadPersistenceManager1.StorageProviderKey = fileId


    However, I need to get the XML and save the XML in the db and then load the xml when user clicks the load button.

    How do I get the XML for the current state?

    Hi Newp,

    I've attached a small demo that saves a PivotGrid using the PersistenceManager and then loads the persisted XML into a TextBlock.

    Here are the steps to take to use the demo:

    1-  Run the app and you'll see a RadPivotGrid populated with sample data
    2 - Click the "Save PivotGrid and show XML" button

    You'll see the XML, with escaped characters, appear in the OutputTextBlock.

    Here's a screenshot of the result:

    Here's the relevant code:

    private async void SaveButton_OnClick(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
                Stream stream = null;
                PersistenceManager manager = new PersistenceManager();
                stream = manager.Save(radPivotGrid1);
                // Make sure you rewind the stream before trying to do anything with it
                stream.Position = 0;
                // You can use a StreamReader to read out the XML
                using (var sr = new StreamReader(stream))
                    OutputTextBlock.Text = await sr.ReadToEndAsync();
                // See here on how to load

    I also recommend taking a look at this page in the documentation to see how to use the Load method. Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns, thank you for choosing Telerik by Progress.

    Thanks for the reply. However, I have noticed now that I posted the question in the wrong forum. I am using asp.net (webform).

    I will repost my question.
