saveAsPDF

Initiates the PDF export and returns a promise. Also triggers the pdfExport event.

Calling this method may trip the built-in browser pop-up blocker. To avoid that, call this method as a response to an end-user action, e.g. a button click.

ReturnsPromise A promise that will be resolved when the export completes. The same promise is available in the pdfExport event arguments.

Example - manually initiate PDF export

<button id="export">Export to PDF</button>
<div id="grid"></div>
<script>
$("#grid").kendoGrid({
  columns: [
    { field: "name" },
    { field: "age" }
  ],
  dataSource: [
      { name: "Jane Doe", age: 30 },
      { name: "John Doe", age: 33 }
  ],
});
$("#export").click(function(e) {
    var grid = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid");
    grid.saveAsPDF();
});
</script>
