In this demo, you can change the name of the exported file at runtime. Type any text in the text box below the pivot grid. Then, export the grid using the icon in its upper-left corner. The exported file will have the exact name you have typed. [note] This example will not work in IE9 and Safari.

proxyUrl

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.

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 Client-Side Exporting article.
