I am using @Html.Kendo().Spreadsheet() on a Razor page in a DotNet Core App. I want to Configure which options are available on the Toolbar and add a Custom one. I see from an older question from 2017, adding a Custom button was not supported back then. Has that changed?

 

Can someone point me to the appropriate documentation for that please.

Hello Daniel,

The Tools on the SpreadsheetToolbar can be customized via the .Toolbar configuration option. You can enable/disable the Home, Insert and Data tabs or use the .Clear() method for any of the tab's configuration and add the desired tools:

.Toolbar(t =>
{
	t.Home(h =>
	{
                h.Clear();
		h.ExportAs();
	});
        t.Data(false);
        t.Insert(false);
})

The above snippet will configure a Toolbar, only with the Home Tab available and containing only the ExportAs button. You can review the available configurations for each of the tabs  in the Spreadsheet API section.

Creating a custom command for the Spreadsheet Toolbar using the HTML Helpers or the Tag Helpers is still not supported. There is a Feature Request on the item and I will urge you to vote on it, if you desire to see such an option available in the future. If implementing a custom command is mandatory for the scenario you have this can be achieved by initializing the Spreadsheet using Kendo UI for jQuery and defining the custom command as demonstrated in the third example in the API section of the documentation.

Aleksandar, I would not need a custom command if I could somehow trap the button events of the Comment dialog on the toolbar.  Is there a way to do that?
