is it possible to export like so? I am getting an error RadGrid must be databound before exporting.

I tried moving the export code to the onDataBound 
        ReportData.DataBound += new EventHandler(ReportData_DataBound);
but it is still giving me the same error even though I can see that the grid has 2394 items.

thanks
RadGrid ReportData = new RadGrid();
 
ReportData.DataSource = datasource
ReportData.DataBind();
 
ReportData.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = true;
ReportData.ExportSettings.ExportOnlyData = true;
ReportData.ExportSettings.IgnorePaging = true;
ReportData.ExportSettings.FileName = ReportName.Replace(" ", "_") + "_" + DateTime.Now.Month.ToString() + "_" + DateTime.Now.Day.ToString() + "_" + DateTime.Now.Year.ToString();
ReportData.MasterTableView.ExportToExcel();

Hello Steven,


protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        RadGrid RadGrid1 = new RadGrid();
        RadGrid1.ID = "RadGrid1";
        RadGrid1.NeedDataSource += new GridNeedDataSourceEventHandler(RadGrid1_NeedDataSource);
 
        RadGrid1.AutoGenerateColumns = false;
        RadGrid1.MasterTableView.CommandItemDisplay = GridCommandItemDisplay.Top;
        RadGrid1.MasterTableView.CommandItemSettings.ShowExportToExcelButton = true;
         
 
        GridBoundColumn boundColumn;
        boundColumn = new GridBoundColumn();
        boundColumn.DataField = "Shipper";
        boundColumn.HeaderText = "Shipper";
        RadGrid1.MasterTableView.Columns.Add(boundColumn);
 
        this.form1.Controls.Add(RadGrid1);
    }
 
    void RadGrid1_NeedDataSource(object sender, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
    {
 
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        dt.Columns.Add("Shipper", typeof(string));
        dt.Columns.Add("ShipDate", typeof(DateTime));
        dt.Rows.Add("Shipper1", DateTime.Now.AddDays(1));
        dt.Rows.Add("Shipper2", DateTime.Now.AddDays(2));
        dt.Rows.Add("Shipper3", DateTime.Now.AddDays(3));
        dt.Rows.Add("Shipper1", DateTime.Now.AddDays(1));
        dt.Rows.Add("Shipper2", DateTime.Now.AddDays(2));
        dt.Rows.Add("Shipper3", DateTime.Now.AddDays(3));
 
        (sender as RadGrid).DataSource = dt;
 
    }

Let me know if any concern.

Looks like your example first adds the grid to  the page and then the user does something to initiate the download.

I am trying to do the bind and export in one event. Thats why I didn't add my grid to the page, I just wanted to leverage its ability to export the data for me. I don't plan on my user ever seeing a bound radgrid.

Is something like this possible?
public void Button_Onlick(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    //bind a radgrid in code behind
    //export the radgrid to excel when its done binding
}

Hello,

Try the following code.
C#:
protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
 RadGrid RadGrid1 = new RadGrid();
 RadGrid1.ID = "RadGrid1";
 RadGrid1.AutoGenerateColumns = false;
 GridBoundColumn boundColumn;
 boundColumn = new GridBoundColumn();
 boundColumn.DataField = "Shipper";
 boundColumn.HeaderText = "Shipper";
 RadGrid1.MasterTableView.Columns.Add(boundColumn);
 DataTable dt = new DataTable();   
 //populate DataTable here
 RadGrid1.DataSource = dt;
 this.form1.Controls.Add(RadGrid1);
 RadGrid1.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = true;
 RadGrid1.ExportSettings.ExportOnlyData = true;
 RadGrid1.ExportSettings.IgnorePaging = true;
 RadGrid1.MasterTableView.ExportToExcel();
}

Thanks,
Princy.

I have a similar scenario, where I have a HTML chart but I need to export the chart data. I am using the grid merely for export.

I followed the above steps and populated the grid but nothing happens and there is no exported file.

Is there anything else that I need to do.

Hello,

You can try using the NeedDataSource event handler to bind the grid:
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/grid-advanced-data-binding.html

Alternatively, you can create the grid declaratively in the aspx page and set its Visible property to false. On button click event handler set it back to true and export the content.

                </div>
 
            </asp:Panel>

I created the grid declaratively and set it's Visible property to false.

In my scenario, I show the chart and the export buttons on the click of a calculate button. I added the export buttons to my UpdatedControl Setting as shown in the code. However, only one of my buttons (out of the pdf and excel export) work. I believe it has something to do with the AJAX but I am unable to figure it out.

 

.cs:

protected void btnExcelExport_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            ExportToExcel();
        }
 
        protected void btnPdfExport_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            rgChart.Visible = true;
            rgChart.MasterTableView.ExportToPdf();
            rgChart.Visible = false;
        }
 
        protected void rgChart_NeedDataSource(object source, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
        {
            rgChart.DataSource = CashFlow;
        }
        protected void ExportToExcel()
        {
            rgChart.Visible = true;
            rgChart.MasterTableView.ExportToExcel();
            rgChart.Visible = false;
        }

What am i missing?

Hi,

You should disable AJAX when exporting. This is explained in the following article:
http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/grid/how-to/Exporting/export-from-ajaxified-grid
