Name Description

The default export mode.

For the ExportSettings.DefaultExportType property, the Default value is equivalent to the DataAware value.

If the XlsxExportOptionsEx.ExportType, XlsExportOptionsEx.ExportType or CsvExportOptionsEx.ExportType property is set to Default, the actual export mode is specified by the ExportSettings.DefaultExportType property.


Export type that uses a new data export engine that features improved performance and memory usage. When exporting to XLS and XLSX formats, specific data-shaping options (e.g., summaries, filtering, sorting, data groups and lookup values) of a source control are retained in the export output. When exporting to CSV format, the control’s data shaping options are not included in the export document, which simplifies subsequent analysis and processing of text data.

The layout of control elements may not be retained in the export document. Other limitations also apply.

Not all controls support the DataAware export mode.


Export type that uses the export engine of the XtraPrinting library. When exporting to XLS and XLSX formats, the layout of control elements is retained in the export document; specific data shaping options are not retained, compared to the DataAware export mode.


By default, the ExportType property’s value matches the value of the static ExportSettings.DefaultExportType property. You can use the ExportType property to choose another export type. See ExportSettings.DefaultExportType to learn more.
