Hi,

To export them to image you can use the export extensions:

private void Export_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
SaveFileDialog sfd = new SaveFileDialog();
sfd.DefaultExt = "png";
sfd.Filter = "PNG File (*.png) | *.png";
if ((bool)sfd.ShowDialog())
{
using (var stream = sfd.OpenFile())
{
Telerik.Windows.Media.Imaging.ExportExtensions.ExportToImage(control_to_export, stream, new PngBitmapEncoder());
}
}
}

Hi GOURVEZ,

You can use RadDocument and PdfFormatProvider to create a document and export it to PDF. You can find more information on this in our online documentation, in the articles about RadDocument and the FormatProviders.
In a nutshell, what you can do is use the export extension method from Vladimir's post to create an image out of the control you wish to export, insert this image into the document and save the document to PDF. This can be done as follows:

private void Export_Click(object sender, System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    SaveFileDialog sfd = new SaveFileDialog();
    sfd.DefaultExt = "pdf";
    sfd.Filter = "PDF File (*.pdf) | *.pdf";
    if ((bool)sfd.ShowDialog())
    {
        RadDocument document = new RadDocument();
        using (var stream = new MemoryStream())
        {
            Telerik.Windows.Media.Imaging.ExportExtensions.ExportToImage(controlToExport, stream, new PngBitmapEncoder());
            stream.Flush();
            stream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);
            document.InsertInline(new ImageInline(stream));
        }
        using (var stream = sfd.OpenFile())
        {
            PdfFormatProvider pdf = DocumentFormatProvidersManager.GetProviderByExtension("pdf") as PdfFormatProvider;
            pdf.Export(document, stream);
        }
    }
}

Note that if the size of the control is bigger than the size of the page, part of the image may be cropped (similarly to how Word exports large pictures to PDF).

I hope this helps.
