enabled

Enables client-side export.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

fileName

Specifies a default name for the file to which grid data is exported.

Type:

String

Default Value: 'PivotGrid'

proxyUrl

Specifies the URL of the server-side proxy that streams the resulting file to the end user to enable export in IE9 and Safari browsers.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined

Generally, exporting is performed using client-side API in browsers. However, the IE9 and Safari (integrated in Mac OS) browsers do not implement an API for saving files. In this instance, the PivotGrid widget can POST the content to a server-side proxy, which will stream the file back to the end user. To enable this functionality, set the export | proxyUrl option to the proxy, which will stream the file to the end user. When implementing the proxy, take the following information into account.

  • Your proxy will receive a POST request with the following parameters in the request body: fileName, contentType (the MIME type of the file) and base64 (the base-64 encoded file content).
  • The proxy should return the decoded file with the "Content-Disposition" header set to attachment; filename="".

The sample proxy implementation for ASPx-based and PHP-based web servers is presented in the DataGrid | Client-Side Export article.
