Excel export in EJ2 TypeScript Treegrid control

27 Apr 202313 minutes to read

The excel export allows exporting TreeGrid data to Excel document. You need to use the excelExport method for exporting. To enable Excel export in the treegrid, set the allowExcelExport as true.

To use excel export, You need to inject the ExcelExport module in treegrid.

import { TreeGrid, Toolbar, ExcelExport, Page } from '@syncfusion/ej2-treegrid';
import { sampleData } from './datasource.ts';
TreeGrid.Inject(Toolbar, ExcelExport, Page);

let treeGridObj: TreeGrid = new TreeGrid({
    dataSource: sampleData,
    childMapping: 'subtasks',
    allowExcelExport: true,
    allowPaging: true,
    height: 220,
    pageSettings: {pageSize: 7},
    toolbar: ['ExcelExport'],
    treeColumnIndex: 1,
    columns: [
            { field: 'taskID', headerText: 'Task ID', width: 90, textAlign: 'Right' },
            { field: 'taskName', headerText: 'Task Name', width: 180, textAlign: 'Left' },
            {
                field: 'startDate', headerText: 'Start Date', width: 90, textAlign: 'Right', type: 'date', format: 'yMd'
            },
            { field: 'duration', headerText: 'Duration', width: 80, textAlign: 'Right' }
    ]
});
treeGridObj.toolbarClick = (args: Object) => {
    if (args['item'].text === 'Excel Export') {
        treeGridObj.excelExport();
    }
}
treeGridObj.appendTo('#TreeGrid');

Persist collapsed state

You can persist the collapsed state in the exported document by defining isCollapsedStatePersist property as true in TreeGridExcelExportProperties parameter of excelExport method.

import { TreeGrid, Toolbar, ExcelExport, TreeGridExcelExportProperties, Page } from '@syncfusion/ej2-treegrid';
import { sampleData } from './datasource.ts';

TreeGrid.Inject(Toolbar, ExcelExport, Page);

let treeGridObj: TreeGrid = new TreeGrid({
    dataSource: sampleData,
    childMapping: 'subtasks',
    allowExcelExport: true,
    allowPaging: true,
    height: 220,
    pageSettings: {pageSize: 7},
    toolbar: ['ExcelExport'],
    treeColumnIndex: 1,
    columns: [
            { field: 'taskID', headerText: 'Task ID', width: 90, textAlign: 'Right' },
            { field: 'taskName', headerText: 'Task Name', width: 180, textAlign: 'Left' },
            {
                field: 'startDate', headerText: 'Start Date', width: 90, textAlign: 'Right', type: 'date', format: 'yMd'
            },
            { field: 'duration', headerText: 'Duration', width: 80, textAlign: 'Right' }
    ]
});
treeGridObj.toolbarClick = (args: Object) => {
    if (args['item'].text === 'Excel Export') {
        let excelExportProperties: TreeGridExcelExportProperties = {
            isCollapsedStatePersist: true
        };
        treeGridObj.excelExport(excelExportProperties);
    }
}
treeGridObj.appendTo('#TreeGrid');

Custom data source

The excel export provides an option to define datasource dynamically before exporting. To export data dynamically, define the dataSource in exportProperties.

import { TreeGrid, Toolbar, ExcelExport, ExcelExportProperties, Page } from '@syncfusion/ej2-treegrid';
import { sampleData } from './datasource.ts';

TreeGrid.Inject(Toolbar, ExcelExport, Page);

let treeGridObj: TreeGrid = new TreeGrid({
    dataSource: sampleData,
    childMapping: 'subtasks',
    allowExcelExport: true,
    allowPaging: true,
    height: 220,
    pageSettings: {pageSize: 7},
    toolbar: ['ExcelExport'],
    treeColumnIndex: 1,
    columns: [
            { field: 'taskID', headerText: 'Task ID', width: 90, textAlign: 'Right' },
            { field: 'taskName', headerText: 'Task Name', width: 180, textAlign: 'Left' },
            {
                field: 'startDate', headerText: 'Start Date', width: 90, textAlign: 'Right', type: 'date', format: 'yMd'
            },
            { field: 'duration', headerText: 'Duration', width: 80, textAlign: 'Right' }
    ]
});
treeGridObj.toolbarClick = (args: Object) => {
    if (args['item'].text === 'Excel Export') {
        let excelExportProperties: ExcelExportProperties = {
            dataSource: sampleData
        };
        treeGridObj.excelExport(excelExportProperties);
    }
}
treeGridObj.appendTo('#TreeGrid');
