    Is it possible to set a PageTitle when using the GridViewPdfExport, similar to when using ExportToPdf (see I can't find a similar property. I'm using the CellPaint and CellFormatting events of the GridViewPdfExport to render Charts in my Grid during export, so I can't just switch export methods. I would like to be able to put a title on the page or grid in the PDF. And unfortunately the GridView does not yet support a title or caption, either. (See

    Hi Jon, 

    You can use the header to display the title. Here is  an example:
    private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        Telerik.WinControls.Export.GridViewPdfExport pdfExporter = new Telerik.WinControls.Export.GridViewPdfExport(this.radGridView1);
        pdfExporter.ShowHeaderAndFooter = true;
        pdfExporter.HeaderHeight = 30;
        pdfExporter.HeaderFont = new Font("Arial", 22);
        pdfExporter.MiddleHeader = "My Title";
        string fileName = "d:\\ExportedData.pdf";
        pdfExporter.RunExport(fileName, new Telerik.WinControls.Export.PdfExportRenderer());

    I hope this will be useful.

    Progress Telerik
