    As per your requirements, when you selected an record in the dropdown list, you need to retrieve the data into the datatable and then you can use the ExportToPdf method which will take the datatable as the input parameter and then export all your records.
    iTextSharp API can be used to export data to PDF.
    Hope it will be helpful to you.
