Hi,
I am using SelfHierarchy within my RadGrid and would like to use ExportToExcel and ExportToWord functionality. But when I export to excel or word, I see command buttons and other data are exported as-well. For example I use below code to export rows collapsed.
protected void RadGrid1_ItemCommand(object source, GridCommandEventArgs e)
 {
     if (e.CommandName.Contains("Export"))
     {
         RadGrid theGrid = (RadGrid)source;
         theGrid.MasterTableView.HierarchyDefaultExpanded = false;
     }
 }
Excel is OK but Word is totally messed. I see buttons and details tables are exported too.

Hello Barbaros,

Export of self-referencing RadGrid is not supported out-of-the-box and this is why it might behave unexpectedly in some cases. Nevertheless I prepared a simple demo showing how to remove the unwanted controls.
We strongly recommend that you use RadTreeList control instead of RadGrid with self-referencing hierarchy.

Hello Asutosh,

I see you have opened several threads with the very same content. I advise that you post only one per issue because this will let the person examining a case focus their efforts in one place instead of spreading information across different channels. I am closing this one, this one and this one and I suggest you continue the discussion here or open a new support ticket from your account in case your issue is urgent.

        {
            string extension = "xls";
            SaveFileDialog dialog = new SaveFileDialog()
            {
                DefaultExt = extension,
                Filter = String.Format("{1} files (*.{0})|*.{0}|All files (*.*)|*.*", extension, "Excel"),
                FilterIndex = 1
            };
            if (dialog.ShowDialog() == true)
            {
                
                Stream stream = dialog.OpenFile();
                datagrid2.ExportAsync(stream,

Hi Ashwani,

When the WPF RadGridView is paged, only the current page is exported. There are a couple of approaches that you can use to avoid that:
1. Use the approach explained here and demonstrated in the ExportPagedDataExcel demo. It includes preserving the page index and size, setting them to 0 in order to export the data and then back to their values.
2. Set the Items property of the export options to your bound collection during the time of the export
datagrid2.ExportAsync(stream,
           new GridViewExportOptions()
           {
               Format = ExportFormat.ExcelML,
               ShowColumnHeaders = true,
               ShowColumnFooters = true,
               ShowGroupFooters = false,
               Encoding=Encoding.Unicode,
                    Items=YourBoundCollection
           }, true);

I hope this is helpful. If you have additional questions about RadGridView for WPF please post them in the designated forum section.
