What's New

  • Added ExportToTabDelimitedText, ExportToHtml, ExportToExcel methods to the grid GridControlBase class, which allow you to export data from the bound, unbound and virtual grid to a file or a stream in the following formats:
    • Tab-delimited text
    • HTML table
    • Microsoft Excel XML workbook
  • Added an article on exporting data from the grid.
