Does anyone know of a way to prevent the opening of a browser window on export? Basically you click on the export link and it opens a new window which in turn opens acrobat. So then you have to close acrobat and then close the blank window opened by the reportviewer control.  This behavior does not seem to exist when adding an export button to the grid.

Current behavior: http://demos.telerik.com/reporting/sales-dashboard/demo.aspx
Desired behavior: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/generalfeatures/pdfexport/defaultcs.aspx

Hi Robert Gayo,

This behavior of the report viewer is by design. To override it you can use the following javascript code:

    <script type="text/javascript"
        ReportViewer.prototype.ExportInternal = function(format, pageIndex) { 
            var url = this.baseExportUrl + "&ExportFormat=" + format; 
            window.open(url, "_self"); 
        } 
    </script> 

You can place it right after the report viewer's definition.

Best wishes,
