I noticed that you posted your feedback about the documentation in many forum threads. Could you please stick to the following
one so we can track our communication easier? As I promised, we will upload the updated versions of the export-related help topics with the next release of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX
. The old documentation is temporary unavailable
since we are performing a major rewrite/rework on the old topics. In the meantime, I will gladly answer your questions about this functionality.
As to the UseAllDataFields property:
It should be used when exporting to ExcelML format and binding to data sources like array, ArrayList, custom objects, etc. RadGrid needs this property to retrieve all properties from the data source in the aforementioned scenario. Otherwise it won't be able to properly construct the export output - having this setting ensures that RadGrid will extract the values from your custom objects.
Thank you for your understanding.
