I have this simple MVC grid with data populated from a search result and what I would like next to the Delete link is a pdf Icon and once I click on it it does a export in pdf as a nice format on what is displayed on the data grid

Can anyone give me some tip on how to do this?

The better answer depends on what you are using for the grid, but there is always iTextSharp to generate a PDF in code.

iTextSharp, a .NET PDF library

Another approach is to use XSLT to generate a PDF.

FOP C# Port
http://sourceforge.net/projects/fop-dotnet/

This project is a port of the Apache Java-based XSL-FO formatter FOP to C#. The purpose is to support the growth and adoption of the XSL-FO standard and to make FOPs capabilities embeddable in managed code applications for the .NET CLR
