pdf.proxyTarget String (default: "_self")

A name or keyword indicating where to display the document returned from the proxy.

If you want to display the document in a new window or iframe, the proxy should set the "Content-Disposition" header to inline; filename="<fileName.pdf>".

Example - open the generated document in a new window

<div id="treelist"></div>
    toolbar: ["pdf"],
    columns: [
      { field: "FirstName", title: "First Name" },
      { field: "LastName", title: "Last Name", width: 160 },
      { field: "Position" }
    pdf: {
        forceProxy: true,
        proxyURL: "/save",
        proxyTarget: "_blank"
    dataSource: {
      transport: {
        read: {
          url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/EmployeeDirectory/All",
          dataType: "jsonp"
      schema: {
        model: {
          id: "EmployeeID",
          fields: {
            parentId: { field: "ReportsTo",  nullable: true },
