Is it possible to export to Excel only the selected rows from a gridview using GridViewSpreadExport?

My code looks like this at the moment:

Using ms As New System.IO.MemoryStream

            mspreadExporter = New GridViewSpreadExport(radDocuments) 'radDocuments is the gridview

            Dim exportRenderer As New SpreadExportRenderer()

            mspreadExporter.ExportFormat = SpreadExportFormat.Xlsx
            mspreadExporter.ExportVisualSettings = False
            mspreadExporter.HiddenColumnOption = HiddenOption.DoNotExport
            mspreadExporter.ChildViewExportMode = ChildViewExportMode.ExportCurrentlyActiveView
            mspreadExporter.SheetMaxRows = ExcelMaxRows._1048576
            mspreadExporter.SheetName = "Report"
            mspreadExporter.FileExportMode = FileExportMode.CreateOrOverrideFile
            mspreadExporter.RunExport(ms, exportRenderer)

            Using fileStream As New System.IO.FileStream(strFilename, IO.FileMode.Create, IO.FileAccess.Write)
            End Using

End Using

Hi Stéphane Thibadueau

Thank you for the shared code snippet.

The GridViewSpreadExport does not expose a mechanism to export only the selected rows. However, you can achieve this using custom code. The GridViewSpreadExport exposes a HiddenRowOption which determines whether to export hidden rows or not. Using this in hand, we can hide the unselected rows, export the control and show the rows again.

Private Sub radButton1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    Dim list As List(Of GridViewRowInfo) = New List(Of GridViewRowInfo)()

    For Each rowInfo As GridViewRowInfo In Me.radGridView1.Rows

        If rowInfo.IsSelected = False Then
            rowInfo.IsVisible = False
        End If

    Dim spreadExporter As GridViewSpreadExport = New GridViewSpreadExport(Me.radGridView1)
    Dim spreadExportRenderer As ISpreadExportRenderer = New SpreadExportRenderer()
    spreadExporter.HiddenColumnOption = HiddenOption.ExportAlways
    spreadExporter.ExportFormat = SpreadExportFormat.Xlsx
    spreadExporter.HiddenRowOption = HiddenOption.DoNotExport
    spreadExporter.ExportVisualSettings = True
    spreadExporter.RunExport("../../exportedFile.xlsx", spreadExportRenderer, "SheetName")

    For Each rowInfo As GridViewRowInfo In list
        rowInfo.IsVisible = True
End Sub

Using the above code snippet, you can export only the selected rows.
