Hello,

I'm trying to export some columns in a grid without hiding them. Now I'm using something like this:

 var $grid = $('#grid').data('kendoGrid');

for(var i=0; i<columnsthatIdontneed.lenght;i++){

$grid.hideColumn(columnsthatIdontneed[i]);

}

 $grid.saveAsExcel();//or $grid.saveAsPDF();

for(var i=0; i<columnsthatIdontneed.lenght;i++){
$grid.showColumn(columnsthatIdontneed[i]);
}

I need a solution for export without hiding those columns.

Thanks.

Hello Baba,

There is another way that I can think of achieving hidden columns. 

You can add an event handler function to the excelExport event and loop over the cells of the workbook and remove the ones you do not wish to export. The workbook is available in the event data.

I created a demo with a boolean array which holds the columns that need to be hidden for quick and easy reference. Then if the current cell has the column index of a column that needs to be hidden, remove it from the workbook.

My demo is available at:
