exportTo

exportTo(type:String, params:Object, callbackHandler:Function|String)

[starting from version: 1.4]

Exports grid or chart to CSV, HTML, PDF, Image or Excel format. The file can be saved to the local file system or to your server (you need to have a script on the server side).

Parameters

  • type – type of export. There are such types available: "csv", "html", "pdf", "image" and "excel".
  • params (optional) – export parameters. Object params can contain the following properties:
    • filename – default name of the resulting file.
    • destinationType – defines where the component’s content will be exported. Destination type can be the following:
      • "file" – the component’s content will be exported to the file to the local computer.
      • "server" – the component’s content will be exported to the server (a server-side script is required).
      • "plain" – only for PDF export. This destination type allows modification of generated PDF file. The component’s content will be exported to the jsPDF object and returned with callbackHandler. jsPDF is a library which generates PDFs in client-side JavaScript. After export from Flexmonster, jsPDF object can be modified using jsPDF API and then saved. See the example.
    • excelSheetName (starting from v2.2) (optional) – String. To configure the sheet name when exporting to Excel file.
    • fieldSeparator (optional) – String. Defines specific fields separator to split CSV row in the export file (only for CSV export). The default separator is ,.
    • footer (starting from v2.211) (optional) – String. HTML and PDF only. Footer is set in HTML format (tags, inline styles, img with base64 src). For PDF it is rendered in the browser and added as an image to the exported file. The following tokens can be used for PDF export: ##CURRENT-DATE##, ##PAGE-NUMBER##. They will be replaced by appropriate data. ##CURRENT-DATE## is also available for HTML export.
    • header (starting from v2.211) (optional) – String. HTML and PDF only. Header is set in HTML format (tags, inline styles, img with base64 src). For PDF it is rendered in the browser and added as an image to the exported file. The following tokens can be used for PDF export: ##CURRENT-DATE##, ##PAGE-NUMBER##. They will be replaced by appropriate data. ##CURRENT-DATE## is also available for HTML export.
    • pageFormat (optional) – defines the page format for a PDF file. There are such types available: "A0", "A1", "A2", "A3", "A4", "A5". Default value: "A4".
    • pageOrientation (optional) – defines the page orientation for a PDF file. Page orientation can be the following:
      • "portrait" (by default) – defines portrait page orientation for a PDF file.
      • "landscape" – defines landscape page orientation for a PDF file.
    • showFilters (starting from v2.1) (optional) – Boolean. Excel only. Indicates whether the filters info will be shown (true) in exported Excel file or not (false). Default value is false.
    • url – to save the file to the server you should provide the component with a path to the server-side script which can save this file.
    • useOlapFormattingInExcel (starting from v2.2) (optional) – Boolean. To configure how to export grid cells in Excel file if formatting is taken from OLAP cube – as a formatted string (true) or as numbers without formatting (false).
  • callbackHandler (optional) – Callback handler is called with the following object: {data: result}.

Examples

1) This example on JSFiddle demonstrates all types of export: CSV, HTML, PDF, Image and Excel.

2) Export to PDF, modify generated file and save locally:

flexmonster.exportTo("pdf", { destinationType: "plain" }, function(res) {
  var pdf = res.data;
  pdf.addPage();
  pdf.text('Hello world!', 10, 10);
  pdf.save(res.filename);
});

3) Export to CSV, save as a local file and add a callback handler:

flexmonster.exportTo('csv', {filename : 'flexmonster.csv'}, 
    function(result) {console.log(result.data)}
);

4) Export to HTML and save as local file:

var params = {
  filename : 'flexmonster.html'
};
flexmonster.exportTo('html', params);

5) Export to PDF file, change page orientation to landscape and save file to the server:

var params = {
  filename : 'flexmonster.pdf', 
  pageOrientation : 'landscape',
  destinationType : 'server',
  url : 'your server'
};
flexmonster.exportTo('pdf', params);

6) Export to Excel and save as local file:

flexmonster.exportTo('excel');
