    RadControls for ASP .NET AJAX Q3 2012 and later
    .NET version 3.5 and later
    Visual Studio version 2008 and later
    Programming language C#
    Browser support

    all browsers supported by RadControls fro ASP .NET AJAX

    This sample demonstrate five concepts:
    1. Export to PDF a RadGrid inside a RadGrid;
    2. Use RadGrid as a layout to present your page and then convert the whole concent into PDF using the integrated PDF convertion of the RadGrid;
    3. Draw custom lines in a RadChart;
    4. Export RadCharts to PDF from the RadGrid layout without using physical images;
    5. Change the resolution of the RadChart between screen and PDF to enhance your quality.

    Just compile it and you'll see the result right away on the screen, then push the "Export to PDF" to see the PDF.

    For the ChartGenerator, I personnaly would do one generator per design of chart you plan to use in your solution
    so you would need less data to travel from the page to the generator. KISS

    I use the Handlers fro the RadChart because most custom objects in a RadGrid are not converted to a PDF, but a simple image is.

    I use memory stream so I don't have to leave physical images on the server.
