Spread export with child rows collapsed
Hello, i am using the GridViewSpreadStreamExport to export a gridview with parent and child rows.
Everithing works fine but is it possible to set the parent row to collapsed, if there are child rows?

Hello, Tel, 

Note that if you want to eliminate the child rows in the exported file, you can set the GridViewSpreadStreamExport.ExportHierarchy property to false. Thus, only the parent rows will be visible in the exported file. 

However, if you export the hierarchy when the ExportChildRowsGrouped property is enabled, the +/- sign appears in front of each row. By default, all rows are expanded. Note that the GridViewSpreadStreamExport and GridViewSpreadExport use internally RadSpreadStreamProcessing and RadSpreadProcessing libraries. Currently, there is no appropriate public API for collapsing/expanding the grouped child rows in the document processing libraries. That is why the grid exports doesn't offer such functionality.

It sounds to be a reasonable feature request. I have logged it in our feedback portal by making this thread public. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your comments on the following link - feedback item.

I have also updated your Telerik points.

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
