When client-side exporting is enabled, the grid toolbar contains the Export button ( ) that exports grid data to Excel. For details on exporting, refer to the Client-Side Exporting article.
When this option is set to true, a click on invokes a menu that contains the "Export selected rows" command.
- export.texts.exportSelectedRows - customizes the text of the "Export selected rows" command.
- selection.mode - enables selection in the widget.
Enables the client-side exporting.
When this option is not set, the value of the grid's wordWrapEnabled option is used.
Specifies the URL of the server-side proxy that streams the resulting file to the end user to enable exporting in IE9 and Safari browsers.
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 DataGrid 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 Set up a Server-Side Proxy article.
