Hello,

my grid uses a row template and now I want to activate the copy to excel feature. So, I set allowCopy to true, but when I copy some selected cells to an excel sheet, the values are not displayed in the correct cells (see the attached excel file).

Is it actually possible to use this feature with row templates?

Regards

Sebastian

Hello Sebastian,

The allowCopy functionality is implemented to retrieve the text of the cells using jQuery's text() method under the hood. This method returns a string representation of the contents of the matched elements along with any new lines and white-spaces as part of it, which is actually the reason for the observed incorrect behavior. In order to avoid this, I would recommend to remove any unnecessary white spaces, which are not needed from the template, as demonstrated in the following simplified example.
