    In one of our projects, we are using Kendo UI Q2 and we cannot upgrade because of IE8 support and we need Export to Excel & Export to PDF features. So we decided to take these features to server side.

    By googling, I found following sample projects from github:

    https://github.com/telerik/ui-for-aspnet-mvc-examples/tree/master/grid/excel-export-server-side

    https://github.com/telerik/ui-for-aspnet-mvc-examples/tree/master/grid/pdf-export-server-side

    These seem to be helping but in the PDF part I see that iTextSharp is used and it's commercial license is NOT FREE. What I want to confirm is that by having a valid license of Telerik DevCraft, can we use iTextSharp commercially or do we need separate license for it?

     

    Any other help or solution will be highly appreciated.

    Hello John,

    A license for iTextSharp is not included with Telerik DevCraft. The purpose of the example is to show a sample approach on how to handle the dataSource items and iterate over them to construct the file on the server side. Any 3rd party library that suits the current needs could be used in the current case.
