All Components

This website hosts native Kendo UI components, built from the ground up with the ultimate performance in mind, intended to be used in the React ecosystem.

Customizing Exported Columns

The GridPDFExport component enables you to specify the columns that will be exported.

To configure the columns that will be exported, include the GridColumn components inside the GridPDFExport component.

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import { Grid, GridColumn, GridCell, GridToolbar, GridPDFExport } from '@progress/kendo-react-grid';

import { sampleProducts } from './sample-products.jsx';

class App extends React.Component {
    gridPDFExport;

    constructor(props) {
        super(props);

        this.state = { pdfExportRequested: false };
    }

    render() {
        const grid = (
            <Grid data={sampleProducts} style={{ height: '490px' }} >
                <GridToolbar>
                    <button
                        title="Export PDF"
                        className="k-button k-primary"
                        onClick={this.exportPDF}
                        disabled={this.state.pdfExportRequested}
                    >
                        Export PDF
                    </button>
                </GridToolbar>

            </Grid>

                    <GridColumn field="QuantityPerUnit" title="Quantity Per Unit" />
                    {grid}
                </GridPDFExport>
            </div>
        );
    }

    exportPDF = () => {
        this.raisePDFExportRequestedFlag();
        this.gridPDFExport.save(this.state.items, this.lowerPDFExportRequestedFlag);
    }

    raisePDFExportRequestedFlag = () => {
        this.setState({ pdfExportRequested: true });
    }

    lowerPDFExportRequestedFlag = () => {
        this.setState({ pdfExportRequested: undefined });
