I like the look of the default commanditem, and have set <CommandItemSettings ShowExportToExcelButton="true".

However, I like to control the exporting to excel myself.

I was thinking to write my own exporting code in the grid.ItemCommand:

    Select Case e.CommandName
      Case "ExportToExcel"
       [Export to Excel code]

However, the built in exporting still fires.

Hello Morten,

You should cancel the command as demonstrated below:
Protected Sub RadGrid1_ItemCommand(source As Object, e As GridCommandEventArgs)
    If e.CommandName = RadGrid.ExportToExcelCommandName Then
        e.Canceled = True
    ....
    End If
End Sub
