Get report from the component

There are several ways to get report in JSON format from the component:

  • You can get report from the component using getReport() API call
    <button onclick="getReport()">Get report</button>
    <div id="pivotContainer">The component will appear here</div>
    <script src="flexmonster/lib/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script src="flexmonster/flexmonster.js"></script>
    
    <script>
    	var pivot = $("#pivotContainer").flexmonster({
    		toolbar: true,
    		licenseKey: "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"
    	});
    
    	function getReport() {
    		var report = flexmonster.getReport();
    		// parse, change or save for later use
    		flexmonster.setReport(report);
    	}
    </script>
    

    Open the example on JSFiddle.

  • Using save() API call to save JSON report to the server or to the local file system
    <button onclick="saveReport()">Save report JSON</button>
    <div id="pivotContainer">The component will appear here</div>
    <script src="flexmonster/lib/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script src="flexmonster/flexmonster.js"></script>
    
    <script>
    	var pivot = $("#pivotContainer").flexmonster({
    		toolbar: true,
    		licenseKey: "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"
    	});
    
    	function saveReport() {
    		flexmonster.save("report.json", "file");
    	}
    </script>

    Open the example on JSFiddle.

The easiest way to create report JSON file is to open Pivot Table demo that is already connected to the sample CSV data and click Save button on the Toolbar.

Here is a sample of such a report file:
