Page Template

The GridPDFExport component enables you to specify a page template that will be additionally inserted into each PDF page of the KendoReact Grid.

Specifying a page template helps you position the content and add headers, footers, and other elements. To style the exported document, use CSS. During the PDF export, the template is positioned in a container with the specified paper size.
To define a page template, specify the pageTemplate property of the GridPDFExport component.

When you use a page template, you are required to set the paperSize property.

class PageTemplate extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return (
            <div style={{ position: "absolute", top: "10px", left: "10px" }}>
                Page {this.props.pageNum} of {this.props.totalPages}
            </div>
        );
    }
}

    gridPDFExport;

        super(props);
