    I'm using the code below in VB.NET to access PDFs from a dropdown control. How do I modify it to work with the ASP.NET C1Dropdown control version? I'm using an ASP.NET MVC application.

    If Trim(ComboBox4.Text) = "Component" Then
    Process.Start(Application.StartupPath & "\Component.pdf")
    End If

    Hi Victor,
    The MVC application allows to export FlexGrid to PDF directly at Client Side, you may call the export method at on Button Click or ComboBox selectedIndex Changed.

    Please refer to the following demo sample for reference:

    Also, if you would like to access the PDF from the ServerSide to client-side, you need a callback on ComboBox selected index changed.
    Please refer to the following demo sample of the ComboBox for reference:

    Hope it helps!

    Hi Victor,
    Please find the attached sample. The sample required the C1.Web.Mvc dll. C1 MVC edition should be installed on your machine. Alternatively, it can be installed from the Nuget.
