Hi, i need to export the gridview data to clean XML format (not the Excel XML type), how can i do it?
if i could get the grid rows and cell it would be the best but i understand that it's not possible with your grid design,
i want to write my custom xml file. your demo does not shows how to do that.

Hi Tal,

Would you shed some more light on your requirements, you want to export a RadGridView, or you want to export only its ItemsSource? In case the first case is concerned, you may have a look at this demo, and inform us if this solution meets your requirements.

All the best,

the demo does not help me as it does not show how to create a clean xml file not the ExceL xml format
I'll shed some more lights:

if for example i have a gridview displaying these results :
Name | Age
tal        30
Jason   50

the result xml file i'm interested in is:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Report>
    <Row>
        <Name>tal</Name>
        <Age>30</Age>
    </Row>
   <Row>
        <Name>jason</Name>
        <Age>50</Age>
    </Row>
</Report>

Hi Tal,

In fact you are targeting xml serialization of your data, but I fear this feature is out of the support scope of RadGridView. I would advise you to have a look at this article for more extensive information on this problem.
