Thank you for the suggestion, I suppose you expect this feature to be supported via a service or API method which exports the content of the grid on the server, is that correct? Let me know if otherwise.

Note that the logic for grid content export to PDF/Excel presented in the examples below should be applicable for different server frameworks:

Export to PDF

Export to Excel

Yes, William. You can see a public preview of the excel/pdf export for the grid here:

Marcelo, as you can see from my last update of this thread status, client export to Excel/PDF is planned for our next major release, due in the second half of November.

C'mon Telerik, what are you waiting to implement this resource? Is your framework so poor that you cannot implement it from 2012?! Inkscape or iTextSharp are not alternative.

Indeed the iTextSharp library is licensed with GPL license, hence cannot be used in commercial projects. Using the third-party library with our grid does not change the licensing terms under which it is offered.

You may ask the creators/curators of the library whether you can pay to use it in commercial projects, or search for other third-party library which serves the same purpose.

We are currently using Telerik Kendo UI control and have a need to export data from grid in pdf format. Looking at the samples mentioned in your post it seems that it uses third party control iTextSharp for pdf conversion. 
From what i understand iTextsharp is open source third party control however, it cannot be used for commercial use. So i would like to know if Telerik already has a valid commercial license for iTextSharp and by purchasing a Kendo UI license we can use this in commercial application development or otherwise.
Will appreciate a quick feedback/response to my query.

The MVC Grid from DevExpress appears to have the export (PDF, Excel, and other) feature already added (as published on their demo website)

I find the lack of excel export for the grid disappointing. All the examples you give are overly complex and require

A very simple way to export to excel, pdf or others format.
please see or jqgrid for reference (one click only and, 2 or 3 line code).
