Saving Files on the Server

The Excel Export component enables you to send the generated Excel file to a remote service.

To save a file on the server:

  1. Use the toDataURL method to get the base64-encoded contents.
  2. Post the contents to the server.
import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { Http } from '@angular/http';

import { products } from './products';

@Component({
    selector: 'my-app',
    template: `
        <button type="button" (click)="save(excelexport)">Save</button>
        <kendo-excelexport [data]="data" [fileName]="fileName" #excelexport>
            <kendo-excelexport-column field="ProductID">
            </kendo-excelexport-column>
            <kendo-excelexport-column field="ProductName">
            </kendo-excelexport-column>
        </kendo-excelexport>
    `
})
export class AppComponent {

    public data: any[] = products;

    public fileName: string = "Products.xlsx";

    constructor(private http: Http) {
    }

    public save(component: any): void {
        component.toDataUrl().then((dataURL: string) => {
            const base64 = dataURL.split(";base64,")[1];

            this.http.post(SAVE_URL, {
                base64: base64,
                fileName: this.fileName
            });
        });
    }
}
