    Set Default Export from ExportGroup

    I want it to default to .pdf so the user does not have to select one each time.

    Hi Zed,

    Currently it is not possible to have a predefined/preselected export format, which however makes sense and I've logged it as a feature request. You have two options for the time being:
    • Hide all the other formats so that only PDF is left. This can be achieved through the device settings like so:

                      <section name="Telerik.Reporting" type="Telerik.Reporting.Processing.Config.ReportingConfigurationSection, Telerik.Reporting, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a9d7983dfcc261be" allowLocation="true" allowDefinition="Everywhere" />
                          <Extension name="IMAGE" visible="false">
                          <Extension name="MHTML" visible="false">
                          <Extension name="XLS" visible="false">
                          <Extension name="XPS" visible="false">
                          <Extension name="CSV" visible="false">
                          <Extension name="RTF" visible="false">
                          <Extension name="IMAGE" visible="false">
                          <Extension name="PDF" visible="true"
    • Hide the export combobox and button by setting the viewer's ShowExportGroup property to false. You can then handle the export by yourself through external UI, which would allow only export to PDF (more info here).

    Hi Steve,

    What is the extension name of TIFF file? 
    I've looked there but not written.

    Hi Mustafa,

    The Tiff output format can be produced by the IMAGE rendering extension.


    New HTML5/JS REPORT VIEWER with MOBILE AND TOUCH SUPPORT available in Telerik Reporting Q3 2013! Get the new Reporting version from your account or download a trial.

    Don't know if this has been answered elsewhere, but this works well:

        $(function () {
            $($('#ReportViewer1_ReportToolbar_ExportGr_FormatList_DropDownList option[value="Export to the selected format"]')[0]).remove();
            $($('#ReportViewer1_ReportToolbar_ExportGr_FormatList_DropDownList option[value=PDF]')[0]).attr('selected', 'selected');

    Assuming your report viewer is named "ReportViewer1"... alter as necessary.
