excelExport

Fired when the user clicks the "Export to Excel" toolbar button.

Event Data

e.sender kendo.ui.Grid

The widget instance which fired the event.

e.data Array

The array of data items used to create the Excel workbook. Available since version 2014.3.1205.

e.workbook kendo.ooxml.Workbook

The Excel workbook configuration object. Used to initialize a kendo.ooxml.Workbook class. Modifications of the workbook will reflect in the output Excel document.

When the Kendo UI Grid is configured for excel export, the workbook is extended internally with a fileName property which is used when the file is saved. The default name is "Export.xlsx". See the example below which shows how to change the name of the exported document.

e.preventDefault Function

If invoked the grid will not save the generated file.

Example - subscribe to the "excelExport" event during initialization

<div id="grid"></div>
<script>
$("#grid").kendoGrid({
  toolbar: ["excel"],
  columns: [
    { field: "name" }
  ],
  dataSource: [
    { name: "Jane Doe"},
    { name: "John Doe"}
  ],
  excelExport: function(e) {
    e.workbook.fileName = "Grid.xlsx";
  }
});
var grid = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid");
grid.saveAsExcel();
</script>
