I was trying to export the gridview to excel but its not working properly. My columns are defined as data templates. Is there any way to export such a grid containing such columns. Please help me in this issue.

Hello esha aftab,

Are your templated columns of type GridViewColumn or GridViewDataColumn?

I'm using GridViewDataColumn.
Something like this:
<Controls:GridViewDataColumn>
   <Controls:GridViewDataColumn.CellTemplate>
        <DataTemplate>
               <Grid>...
                          ...
               </Grid>
        </DataTemplate>
   </Controls:GridViewDataColumn.CellTemplate>
</Controls:GridViewDataColumn>


However now I'm writing my custom export so may be my issue will get resolved. Thank you for your prompt response.

Hi ????,




May you please elaborate a little bit more on your exact settings? 
Generally when you are using custom defined template it is better to handle the ElementExporting event and override the value for that column's cells to make the exported value look like your template, as demonstrated here.
