Page Templates

When you request multi-page output through the forcePageBreak or paperSize, you can additionally specify a page template.

This template will be inserted into each page before producing the output. You can easily position it relatively to the page with CSS. The template can be a function, or a Kendo UI template, and it receives the number of the current page (pageNum) and the total number of pages (totalPages).

    <script type="x/kendo-template" id="page-template">
        <div class="page-template">
            <div class="header">
                <div style="float: right">Page #:pageNum# of #:totalPages#</div>
                This is a header.
            </div>
            <div class="footer">
                This is a footer.
                Page #:pageNum# of #:totalPages#
            </div>
        </div>
    </script>

    <div id="grid"></div>

    <style>
        /*
            Make sure everything in the page template is absolutely positioned.
            All positions are relative to the page container.
        */
        .page-template > * {
            position: absolute;
            left: 20px;
            right: 20px;
            font-size: 90%;
        }
        .page-template .header {
            top: 20px;
            border-bottom: 1px solid #000;
        }
        .page-template .footer {
            bottom: 20px;
            border-top: 1px solid #000;
        }

        /*
            Use the DejaVu Sans font for display and embedding in the PDF file.
            The standard PDF fonts have no support for Unicode characters.
        */
        .k-grid {
            font-family: "DejaVu Sans", "Arial", sans-serif;
            width: 400px;
