This method requires the jsPDF library to export data and the jsPDF-AutoTable plugin to create tables in exported files.

You can call this method at any point in your application. In this example, we call this method in a standalone button's onClick handler:

jQuery
JavaScript
HTML
$(function(){
    $('#exportButton').dxButton({
        // ...
        onClick: function() {
            const doc = new jsPDF();
            DevExpress.pdfExporter.exportDataGrid({
                jsPDFDocument: doc,
                component: dataGrid
            }).then(function() {
                doc.save('Customers.pdf');
            });
        }
    });

    const dataGrid = $('#gridContainer').dxDataGrid({
        // ...
    }).dxDataGrid('instance');
});
