When using grids, you may need to export your data to PDF in order to make it accessible on-the-go, share it with your boss or peers, etc.

The Kendo UI grid provides client Pdf export functionality (server-agnostic) which is powered by the underlying Drawing API engine of the Kendo UI framework. To enable it, include the corresponding command to the grid toolbar and configure the pdf export settings in par with your preferences. For instance, you can specify to export all pages, margins, paper size, font, etc. To initiate export programmatically, you can call the saveAsPdf method from the client API. Furthermore, you have the ability to customize the look and feel of the exported grid table by wiring the pdfExport event of the grid. More information on the Pdf export feature of the widget is available in the following help topic.

The demo also demonstrates how a Grid column can be excluded from exporting via the Exportable setting.
