PDF Export

This help article explains how to enable and configure PDF Export for RadGantt.

Enable PDF Export

To enable the built-in PDF export functionality for RadGantt you should set its EnablePdfExport property to true:

<telerik:RadGantt runat="server" ID="RadGantt1" 
    RenderMode="Lightweight" 
    Height="450px"
    SelectedView="MonthView"
    EnablePdfExport="true">
</telerik:RadGantt>

Enabling the above property will force the RadGantt to display an Export to PDF button on its toolbar:

gantt-export-button

Configure PDF Export

The PDF Export functionality is configurable. The RadGantt offers two ways to configure the export:

  • by using the properties of the ExportSettings > PDF element within the RadGantt mark-up declaration:
<telerik:RadGantt runat="server" ID="RadGantt1" 
    RenderMode="Lightweight" 
    Height="450px"
    SelectedView="MonthView"
    EnablePdfExport="true">
    <ExportSettings>
        <Pdf
            FileName="GanttPDF"
            MarginBottom="10mm"
            MarginLeft="10mm"
            MarginRight="10mm"
            MarginTop="10mm"/>
    </ExportSettings>
</telerik:RadGantt>
  • by using the server-side API of the RadGantt object:
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    RadGantt1.ExportSettings.Pdf.FileName = "GanttPDF";
    RadGantt1.ExportSettings.Pdf.MarginBottom = "10mm";
    RadGantt1.ExportSettings.Pdf.MarginLeft = "10mm";
    RadGantt1.ExportSettings.Pdf.MarginRight = "10mm";
    RadGantt1.ExportSettings.Pdf.MarginTop = "10mm";
}
Protected Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
    RadGantt1.ExportSettings.Pdf.FileName = "GanttPDF"
    RadGantt1.ExportSettings.Pdf.MarginBottom = "10mm"
    RadGantt1.ExportSettings.Pdf.MarginLeft = "10mm"
    RadGantt1.ExportSettings.Pdf.MarginRight = "10mm"
    RadGantt1.ExportSettings.Pdf.MarginTop = "10mm"
End Sub
