KendoUI MVC Serverside wrappers should allow exporting grid data to PDF, Excel and CSV.
KendoUI MVC Serverside wrappers should allow exporting grid data to PDF, Excel and CSV. While this has been asked for before, what I am asking is that this feature be part of the KendoUI complete with server side wrappers so that this is no longer just a limitation with the client-side framework. Every business application we have with grids requires the ability to export in PDF, Excel and CSV formats.

Does it support exporting Enum Grid columns, Foreign Key grid columns and grouping aggregates?

Thanks for the feedback, we are researching whether export functionality can be accomplished using our internal services, possibly utilizing Telerik Backend Services for that matter.

At this juncture you can use third-party libraries for export, as demonstrated in these code library samples:

Russell, I am happy to inform you that a preview of Excel and PDF export for the grid widget is available in our Q3 Beta, and you can give it a spin. Here are the pertinent demos:

Note that for the RTM release, due in about three weeks, all DataViz widgets and our Scheduler widget will also incorporate PDF export functionality.

I see the update suggests this is a Q3 2014 possibility, but unless I missed the announcement it isn't there yet.  This feature would allow me to tell SyncFusion where to shove you know what.  This is literally the only thing stopping me from buying Telerik and dropping SyncFusion faster that my first ex girlfriend.

Yeah, data export to "X" format is not the job of a UI library

All the famous controls have this functionality embedded. It seems it is necessary for KendoUi Grid to have Export control.

You can either use NPOI or MS XML SDK to accomplish this. I think such functionality is a little bit outside of their scope of things they want to add to the framework.

Also look at this blog post (albeit not using the server wrappers, it still makes a kendoExcelGrid widget):

When implementing a functional export please do not forget to add support for Cyrillic.

You can use NPOI to generate exactly what the grid is displaying (filtering, grouping, etc...) by calling an mvc endpoint with the current grid state.
