    I have a grid (MVC) that displays a summary list, but when I Export to Excel I would like to use a different datasource that has detail information

    when I use the ProxyUrl, it still takes the gridDatasource  and when I use forceProxy(true)  the post api method is called and data is retrieved, but I get the error

    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

    Currently I am returning a model,   but this seems to need to be some sort of Styling formatting to convert into a excel file to open.


    What do I return in the API to allow the List<model> to open in Excel

    I believe that what you are looking for is the Server-side Excel export project. Using server-side code allows the developer full control over the final output.
