I have beeen using export to excel function from the radgrid control for silverlight. Now I do have a requirement to show up a drop down in excel as one of the columns with some predefined values. Is that possible to do it.
code snippet:
private void ButtonExport_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            string extension = "xls";
            SaveFileDialog dialog = new SaveFileDialog()
            {
                DefaultExt = extension,
                Filter = String.Format("{1} files (*.{0})|*.{0}|All files (*.*)|*.*", extension, "Excel"),
                FilterIndex = 1
            };

            if (dialog.ShowDialog() == true)
            {
                using (Stream stream = dialog.OpenFile())
                {
                    gridView.Export(stream,
                        new GridViewExportOptions()
                        {
                            Format = ExportFormat.Html,
                            ShowColumnHeaders = true,
                            ShowColumnFooters = false,
                            ShowGroupFooters = false
                        });
                }
            }
        }

Hi,

Unfortunately, as far as I know drop down options are not supported in the ExcelML specification, so that such behavior will be impossible to achieve.
