How to: Draw Columns in an Exported Document

This example conditionally applies a style to company names in an exported document based on the number of products. Company names are painted in ‘green’ if the product count is greater than 1,000. Otherwise, the company names are painted in ‘red’.

<dx:ASPxCardView ID="ASPxCardView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" 
    DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" KeyFieldName="ProductID">
        <dx:CardViewTextColumn FieldName="ProductName" />
        <dx:CardViewTextColumn FieldName="UnitPrice" />
        <dx:CardViewTextColumn FieldName="UnitsInStock" />
        <dx:CardViewTextColumn FieldName="UnitsOnOrder" />
        <dx:CardViewTextColumn FieldName="ProductID" Visible="False" />
<dx:ASPxCardViewExporter ID="ASPxCardViewExporter1" runat="server" CardViewID="ASPxCardView1"
                         OnRenderBrick="ASPxCardViewExporter1_RenderBrick" />
<dx:ASPxButton runat="server" ID="ASPxButton1" AutoPostBack="false" 
               OnClick="ASPxButton1_Click" Text="Export to PDF" />
protected void ASPxCardViewExporter1_RenderBrick(object sender, DevExpress.Web.ASPxCardViewExportRenderingEventArgs e) {
    CardViewColumn dataColumn = e.Column as CardViewColumn;
    if (dataColumn != null && dataColumn.FieldName == "ProductName") {
        e.BrickStyle.ForeColor = (decimal)e.GetValue("UnitPrice") > 10 ? Color.Green : Color.Red;
        e.BrickStyle.BackColor = Color.LightYellow;
protected void ASPxButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) {
