Export multiple grids in the same pdf file

Environment

Product Grid for Progress Kendo UI
Progress Kendo UI version Created with version 2017.3.913

Description

How can I export many grids in the same pdf file?

Solution

Simply export one of the grids using _drawPDF function. Then in the callback of the promise, export the rest of the grids and append the result to the export of the initially exported grid.

        <div id="example">


            <a id='export' class='k-button'>Export both grids </a>

            <div id="grid"></div>
            <div id="grid2"></div>

            <script src="https://kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2017.3.913/js/pako_deflate.min.js"></script>

            <script type="x/kendo-template" id="page-template">
            <div class="page-template">
                <div class="header">
                <div style="float: right">Page #: pageNum # of #: totalPages #</div>
                Multi-page grid with automatic page breaking
                </div>
                <div class="watermark">KENDO UI</div>
                <div class="footer">
                Page #: pageNum # of #: totalPages #
                </div>
                </div>
            </script>

            <script>
