You've got PDF rendering on reporting, Editor, RadGrid (others?)...where's the standalone PDF component for us to just feed content into and manipluate (rasterize?)?

Is there anything in an upcoming Q release?

Hello Steve,

Currently the pdf export engines plugged in RadGrid, RadEditor and Telerik Reporting can be used only as part of the controls internal model.

Thank you for sharing your idea for a stand-alone PDF export library - I will pass it to our development department to be considered further. If this appears to be commonly requested component, you may see it included in a future version of the Telerik product collection.

Best regards,
Sebastian

Thanks,
  It's frustrating trying to find a reasonably priced PDF component, most companies want us to pay a per CPU price @ hundreds of dollars per CPU...

In another area I have suggested a PDF Panel which would be a container control that allow users to export the contents of the container to PDF. I this way, this could be used in many more places that the current Grid/Editor scenarios. I still think such a control would be beneficial, though of course a PDF Generation library would provide some flexibility not availabe in a simple Panel. If a library is created and made available through telerik, I think the creation of this simple PDF Panel container control would be great to make exporting actual content (as opposed to virtual content) as snap.
