pdf.proxyURL String (default: null)

The URL of the server side proxy which will stream the file to the end user.

A proxy will be used when the browser isn't capable of saving files locally. Such browsers are IE version 9 and lower and Safari.

The developer is responsible for implementing the server-side proxy.

The proxy will receive a POST request with the following parameters in the request body:

  • contentType: The MIME type of the file
  • base64: The base-64 encoded file content
  • fileName: The file name, as requested by the caller.

The proxy should return the decoded file with set "Content-Disposition" header.

Example - set the server proxy URL

<div id="chart"></div>
      pdf: {
          proxyURL: "/save"
      legend: {
          position: "bottom"
      series: [
          { name: "Series 1", data: [1, 2, 3] },
          { name: "Series 2", data: [3, 4, 5] }

  var chart = $("#chart").getKendoChart();
