Option to configure the field delimiter when exporting to CSV

Please expose an option to configure the field delimiter for CSV export. I want to set semicolon as field delimiter instead of a comma.




Internally the Grid uses SpreadStreamProcessing library to perform the export. That said, a necessary prerequisite to implement the current enhancement is that SpreadStreamProcessing supports settings for changing the delimiter when exporting to CSV. You may vote for the item and follow it to get status email updates.

For the time being, you may customize the exported file to set the desired field separator as suggested in the Grid CSV export - change the comma field delimiter knowledge base article.

Hi Meindert,

The item is currently not included in the near-term roadmap. We are normally planning the component enhancements based on the community demand and we track the gathered community votes to evaluate that.

In this specific scenario, there is also a necessary prerequisite to be completed prior to implementing the feature in the Blazor Grid. As its export uses the SpreadStreamProcessing library, it is required that the SpreadStreamProcessing library supports a delimiter setting in general. That said, you can also track that implementation as well.

For the time being, you may use the suggested delimiter customization through the OnAfterExport event.

Does this have attention in the near future, besides the number of votes?
