    I have a grid that includes the Export to Excel functionality.

    I retrieve the grid options via getOptions() and store them to local storage so that I may later restore those settings by using setOptions().  The  Export to Excel button is not being displayed after I call setOptions() so I'm assuming this is something I need to manually add to the configuration.  However, I'm having a hard time coming up with the syntax.  How do I do this?

    The relevant configuration of the grid looks like this:

    .ToolBar(tools => tools.Excel())
    .Excel(excel => excel
        .ProxyURL(Url.Action("Excel_Export_Save", "Application"))


    Code to populate the grid options looks like this:

    var options = JSON.parse(gridOptions);
    // Now that I have the options how do I add the Excel settings I defined on the
    // grid above before calling setOptions()?

    Hello PJ Melies,

    This issue is expected and the reason is that the toolbar template is built on the server side in this case and not stored in the configuration. The applicable workaround is demonstrated in the following sample project.
