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 is not capable of saving files locally, for example, Internet Explorer 9 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 the "Content-Disposition" header set to attachment; filename="<fileName.pdf>".

Example - set the server proxy URL

<div id="spreadsheet"></div>
<script>
    $("#spreadsheet").kendoSpreadsheet({
        sheets: [{
            rows: [{
                cells: [{ value: "A" }, { value: "B" }, { value: "C" }]
            }, {
                cells: [{ value: "1" }, { value: "2" }, { value: "3" }]
            }, {
                cells: [{ value: "4" }, { value: "5" }, { value: "6" }]
            }]
        }],
        pdf: {
            proxyURL: "/save"
        }
    });

    var spreadsheet = $("#spreadsheet").data("kendoSpreadsheet");
    spreadsheet.saveAsPDF();
</script>
