Asked On April 23, 2014 06:32 PM UTC


i'm trying to implement a PDF export feature to a ASP.NET MVC 4 Syncfusion Project following this example:


There are two problems i cannot solve:

1. using Syncfusion.Mvc.Pdf; - There is no Namespace Pdf under Mvc
2. return doc.ExportAsActionResult(...) there is no method ExportAsActionResult in Syncfusion.Pdf.PdfDocument

Thanks for your help

Kind regards

Hi lc,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

You may include the below mentioned namespace using Syncfusion.Pdf which is present in Syncfusion.Pdf.Mvc. ExportAsActionResult API is not available in Syncfusion.Pdf.Mvc.dll. This function is available in PdfExtension.cs class in the sample browser (Pdf.MVC\Samples\Extensions\PdfExtension.cs).


Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

I found Syncfusion.Pdf.PdfDocument.Save which sends the pdf to the browser

I downloaded the ASP.NET MVC Package, but I cannot find the ExportAsActionResult function, where I can find the PdfExtension class, in the nuget package we do not have any samples folder.
