Exporting feature provides an option that allows you to export either the pivot chart or pivot grid or both by using the client-export-mode property.

The client-export-mode property takes any one of the following values:

  • ChartAndGrid: Exports both pivot chart and pivot grid controls. This is the default mode.
  • ChartOnly: Exports pivot chart control alone.
  • GridOnly: Exports pivot grid control alone.

Make use of export with the client side JSON data. The control can be exported by invoking the before-export event with an appropriate export option as a parameter.

  • cshtml
  • <ej-pivot-client id="PivotClient1" before-export="Export">
    //..
    </ej-pivot-client>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function Export(args) {
            args.url = "https://js.syncfusion.com/ejservices/api/PivotClient/Olap/Export"; //You can provide the hosted url link for exporting here.
        }
    </script>

    Customize the export document name

    The document name to be exported can be customized. Following code sample illustrates this process:

  • cshtml
  • <ej-pivot-client id="PivotClient1" before-export="Export">
    //..
    </ej-pivot-client>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
            function Export(args) {
                args.url = "https://js.syncfusion.com/ejservices/api/PivotClient/Olap/Export";
                args.fileName=" File name is customized here ";
            }
    </script>

    Pivot chart - exporting format

    IMPORTANT

    This option is applicable only for the pivot chart specifically when exported to an Excel document.

    You can set an option to export the pivot chart to an Excel document, and you can export it as either an image or pivot chart format itself by setting the Boolean property ‘exportChartAsImage’ in the before-export event.

    NOTE

    By default the pivot chart will be exported in image format to an Excel document.

  • cshtml
  • <ej-pivot-client id="PivotClient1" before-export="Export" client-export-mode="ChartOnly">
    //..
    </ej-pivot-client>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function Export(args) {
            args.url = "https://js.syncfusion.com/ejservices/api/PivotClient/Olap/Export";
            args.exportChartAsImage = false; //you can set the chart format here
        }
    </script>

    The following screenshot shows the control, which is exported to an Excel document showing its own format (pivoting chart).

    Exporting customization

    You can add the title and description to the exporting document by using the title and description properties respectively obtained in the before-export event. Similarly, you can enable or disable the styling on the exported document by using the exportWithStyle property.

  • cshtml
  • <ej-pivot-client id="PivotClient1" before-export="Export">
    //..
    </ej-pivot-client>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function Exporting(args) {
            args.url = "https://js.syncfusion.com/ejservices/api/PivotClient/Olap/Export";
            args.url = "ExportPivotClient";
    
            //you can provide title and description here
            args.title = "PivotClient";
            args.description = "Visualizes both OLAP and Relational datasource in tabular and graphical formats";
    		args.exportWithStyle = true;   // by default it sets as true. It improves performance on exporting huge data when it sets as false.
        }
    </script>

    Exporting complete data on paging

    When paging is enabled, you can export the complete data by enabling the enable-complete-data-export property. It is supported for all kinds of exporting formats available in the pivot client.

  • cshtml
  • <ej-pivot-client id="PivotClient1" enable-complete-data-export="true">
    //..
    </ej-pivot-client>
