I noticed that when exporting the grid, if I type in an existing file name it will lock up the browser.  What is the recommended way to handle this scenario?  Is there a way to prompt the user to ask if they want to overwrite the existing file?

Hello Kjell,

Usually that is what is happening - if there is a file with the same name - it asks whether you want to override it. You can test it on our online demo.

Probably you mean that when the file is already open and you try to override it?

Ok after further experimentation I found that I do get the prompt when running the app normally, just not in debug, this is not a big deal.
