I have a grid that has

.Excel(excel => excel
.FileName("Global Agenda Dashboard Grid.xlsx") 
.Filterable(true)
        .ProxyURL(Url.Action("Export", "Excel"))
.AllPages(true)

I have a Excel controller and in there a method

[HttpPost]
public ActionResult Export(string contentType, string base64, string fileName)
{
var fileContents = Convert.FromBase64String(base64);

return File(fileContents, contentType, fileName);
}

But as far as I can tell this function is not getting called, but the export is happening. Ideas?

Hi Kevin,

Generally, the proxy URL is used when the file cannot be serialized on the client and cannot be saved locally. However, if you would like to always hit the proxy URL, enable the forceProxy property.

.Excel(excel => excel
    .FileName("Global Agenda Dashboard Grid.xlsx")
    .Filterable(true)
    .ForceProxy(true)
    .ProxyURL(Url.Action("Export", "Excel"))
    .AllPages(true))
