save

save(params: Object)

[starting from version: 2.302]

Saves the current report to a specified location (e.g., to a server or to the local file system). The report is saved in JSON format.

Parameters

params – Object. It can have the following properties:

  • filename – String. A default name of the file.
  • destination (optional) – String. Defines where to save the generated file. The destination can be either "server" (the file will be saved to the server) or "file" (the file will be saved to the local file system). When saving to a server, Flexmonster creates an XMLHttpRequest and sends it as a POST request.
    Default value: "file".
  • callbackHandler (optional) – Function. A JS function that is called when the report is saved. It has the following parameters:
    • result – Object. Describes the result of saving. If saving fails, the result will be null. The result object can have the following properties:
      • reportReport Object. The saved report.
      • response (optional) – String. The server’s response. This property is defined in the result only when the destination is set to "server".
      • status (optional) – Number. The response status code. This property is defined in the result only when the destination is set to "server".
    • error – Object. Describes the error with saving. If saving is successful, the error will be null. The error object can have the following properties:
      • message – String. The error message.
      • response (optional) – String. The server’s response. This property is defined in the error only when the destination is set to "server".
      • status (optional) – Number. The response status code. This property is defined in the error only when the destination is set to "server".
  • url (optional) – String. A URL to the server-side script which saves the generated file. The file is sent as a POST parameter. Use this parameter only if the destination parameter is "server".
  • embedData (optional) – Boolean. Specifies whether to save CSV data within the report or not. Default value: false.
  • reportType (optional) – String. The report can be saved in "json" or "xml" format. Starting from version 2.6.0, the "xml" format is deprecated. Default value: "json".
  • requestHeaders (optional) – Object. Allows you to add custom request headers when saving the report to a server. This object consists of "key": "value" pairs, where "key" is a header’s name and "value" is its value.
  • withDefaults (optional) – Boolean. Indicates whether the default values for options will be included in the report (true) of not (false). Default value: false.
  • withGlobals (optional) – Boolean. Indicates whether the options defined in the global object will be included in the report (true) or not (false). Default value: false.

Examples

1) How to save a report to the local file system:

flexmonster.save({ 
filename: 'myreport.json',
destination: 'file'
});

Check out on JSFiddle.

2) How to save a report to the server:

flexmonster.save({ 
filename: 'myreport.json',
destination: 'server',
url: 'http://yourserver.com/yourscript.php'
});

Note: the server-side script should be created on your back end to save reports to the server. And the url parameter is the path to this server-side script.

3) How to handle errors when saving to a server:

flexmonster.save(
{
filename: 'report.json',
destination: 'server',
url: 'https://httpstat.us/404',
callbackHandler: function(result, error) {
if (error) {
alert("response: " + error.response + "\nstatus: "
+ error.status + "\nmessage: "+ error.message);
}
}
}
);

See the live sample on JSFiddle.
