Hello Avi,

This feature was included in our backlog and approved in 2016, however, it was not scheduled for development and release. When we make a decision what features to implement we take into account factors like customer demand and impact, and at this point, according to this criteria, there are items of more pressing urgency.

Yes I've checked. I had to create and use many new controls and needed a quick way to export it to PDF, exporting it using PdfSharp took me much less time than it would take to implement the renderer of each control.
By the time I finished exporting it using PdfSharp, I would probably be still creating the Renderer for the DataGrid UIElement I use in the diagram.

Thanks for the information, MaurĂ­cio. Have you checked this example: https://github.com/telerik/xaml-sdk/tree/master/PdfProcessing/ExportUIElement ? It demonstrates how to convert UIElement directly to PDF. It doesn't work with all possible UIElements, but main primitives are covered and the example is easily extensible.

Borislav Ivanov, I use a third-party library to export my custom RadDiagram to a PDF file. The main reason is that I've created many other tools, It would take a lot of time to export all the components the way telerik's teaches, which is using the RadPdfProcessing to draw each of the controls.

I create a new XpsDocument using System.Windows.Xps.Packaging and then I pass it to the third-party library PdfSharp.Xps, saving a pdf file.

I've attached an example, where I show a few controls and a pdf generated.

This feature request is generally approved and we are collecting feedback and track customers demand, but for now it's not scheduled for specific release. What are your specific requirements? Do you use other third-party libraries to achieve this currently?
