I was exporting to Excel just fine in Chrome when I started using this product.  Now I get an "Aw, Snap" error anytime I do it.  Firefox works just fine.  I cleared cache/cookies, disabled virus scanner, rebooted machine, even reinstalled Chrome.


Here is the grid code:

      .ColumnMenu(x => x.Filterable(true))
      .ToolBar(toolbar =>
 //toolbar.Custom().Name("foo").Text("Perform Action").Action("PerformAction", "EmployeeHistory");
 //toolbar.Template(x => { this.Html.Write("test"); });
      .Scrollable(scrollable => scrollable.Height(430))
      .Columns(col =>
          col.Bound(x => x.Id).Width(120).Sortable(false).Locked();
 col.Bound(x => x.CategoryName).Width(120).Sortable(true);
 col.Bound(x => x.CompanyName).Width(120).Sortable(true).Filterable(true);
 col.Group(g => 
 g.Title("Month 12th Count")
 .HeaderHtmlAttributes(new { style = "text-align: center;"})
 .Columns(c =>
 c.Bound(x => x.Month1_12Count).Title("Month 1").Filterable(true).HeaderHtmlAttributes(new { style = "white-space: normal"}).Width(120);
 c.Bound(x => x.Month2_12Count).Title("Month 2").Filterable(true).HeaderHtmlAttributes(new { style = "white-space: normal" }).Width(120);
 c.Bound(x => x.Month3_12Count).Title("Month 3").Filterable(true).HeaderHtmlAttributes(new { style = "white-space: normal" }).Width(120);
 col.Bound(x => x.Month1).Filterable(true).Width(120);
 col.Bound(x => x.Month2).Filterable(true).Width(120);
 col.Bound(x => x.Month3).Filterable(true).Width(120);
 col.Bound(x => x.PayCycleCode).Sortable(true).Filterable(true).Width(120);
 col.Bound(x => x.Quarter).Sortable(true).Filterable(true).Width(120);
 col.Bound(x => x.TaxCode).Sortable(true).Filterable(true).Width(120);
 col.Bound(x => x.Year).Sortable(true).Filterable(true).Width(120);
 .Excel(excel => excel
.ProxyURL(Url.Action("Export_Save", "EmployeeHistory")))
      .Resizable(x => x.Columns(true))
      .Reorderable(x => x.Columns(true))
        //.Events(e => { e.ColumnMenuInit("filterMenuInit"); })
      .Pageable(pageable => pageable
      .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
 .Read(read => read.Action("GetData", "EmployeeHistory").Data("sendAntiForgery")))


And here is the Controller code:

public ActionResult Export_Save(string contentType, string base64, string fileName)
var fileContents = Convert.FromBase64String(base64);

return File(fileContents, contentType, fileName);

public ActionResult GetData([DataSourceRequest]DataSourceRequest request)

IQueryable<ViewCompanyStatus> details = this.DataManager.AppDataContextManager.GetViewCompanyStatusRepository()
.Find(x => x.Id != 0) as IQueryable<ViewCompanyStatus>;

Func<ViewCompanyStatus, HistoryCompanyStatsGridVM> InfoFactory = delegate(ViewCompanyStatus model)
return new HistoryCompanyStatsGridVM

DataSourceResult result = details.ToDataSourceResult(request, x => InfoFactory(x));

// large data sets will blow us the F up for export
//JsonResult r = Json(result, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);

var serializer = new JavaScriptSerializer { MaxJsonLength = Int32.MaxValue };
var result2 = new ContentResult
Content = serializer.Serialize(result),
ContentType = "application/json"
return result2;


Thanks in advance!

Hello Mike,

I am afraid that the issue is not a known one, nor is reproducible in our online demos. I have tried to reproduce it in a sample project, but to no avail. So please extract a runnable sample in a Kendo UI Dojo and we will be happy to help.

Thanks for the cooperation
