DevExtreme HTML5 Widgets - Data Grid Export, Fixed Columns, & more (Coming soon in v15.1)

ASP.NET Team Blog
28 May 2015

We've added three major enhancements to our excellent client-side HTML5 Data Grid widget:

Excel Export

DevExpress DevExtreme DataGrid Export

This was the most requested feature of the DevExtreme Data Grid widget and I'm happy to announce that it's available in the v15.1 release!

You can now export data displayed in the HTML5/JS Data Grid widget to an Excel document (for all or only selected rows). Data is exported as it is displayed inside the grid - with sorting, filtering and grouping applied - with numbers, dates and formatting maintained.

The exporting is done on the client-side too. To learn more, join me on the webinar listed below.

Fixed Columns

The DevExpress HTML5 Data Grid allows you to anchor columns to the left or rightmost grid edge. When anchored, columns are not horizontally scrolled with the grid.

Header Filter

With this release, you can filter grid data against any column by choosing unique column values from a drop-down list (using the column header’s filter button).

Assuming the dashboards use this js widget will we be seeing the same functionality at some point?

As far as I can see with the beta I can still only export to PDF or Image on an individual dashboard item and there isn't any filtering/grouping. This would be great additional functionality especially the excel export.

Yes, the export to excel is one of our priority features for the next release.

Due to cross-platform requirements, we have to use our own “server-side” exporting engine which is fully independent of the DevExtreme implementation. But rest assured we will have a good solution for this in the next release.

And, the Dashboard product does use the DevExtreme Data Grid (and now PivotGrid) JavaScript widgets.

A dedicated client-side API exists in the Dashboard product which allows you to obtain the underlying widgets (grid, chart etc) and customize them.
