Remove Report Filters section from pdf export

Ashley Murphy asked on February 20, 2019

When I’m viewing the report in the browser it doesn’t show the reportFilters section, as I’ve disabled it with config options showFilter and showReportFiltersArea.
When I export the report it always shows, even if I used the exportTo option with showFilters: false
See the attached screenshot for the area I’m trying to remove in my exports (this is from a PDF, but it also shows in CSV as well, I’m hoping to remove it from all exports).

Hello, Ashley,
Thank you for writing to us. Your request seems reasonable. Our development team will add such option and release it on March the 25th.
Please let me know if you have other questions.

Oh great.
The reason we’re wanting this removed is we believe this pushes some of our longer reports off the page when exporting to pdf in landscape mode. It doesn’t seem to allow for the part at the top, breaking off the final part of our reports. Is this something you’re aware of, if so do you have any short term solutions?

Hello, Ash,
Thank you for your reply.
As a temporary workaround we can suggest the following: select Export > Print, then select Save as PDF as a destination. This way, report filters won’t be present in the PDF file.
Hope it helps.

Hello, Ash,

We are glad to announce that we have released a new version of Flexmonster and now the reportFilters are not exported when the showReportFiltersArea property is false.
The feature is available in the 2.7.2 version.

You are welcome to update the component.

Best Regards,

Thank you!

(I was on holidays so didn’t try this until now.)
