Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPrinting

Assembly: DevExpress.Printing.v18.2.Core.dll


public virtual void ExportToCsv(
    Stream stream,
    CsvExportOptions options
Public Overridable Sub ExportToCsv(
    stream As Stream,
    options As CsvExportOptions


Name Type Description
stream Stream

A Stream object to which the created CSV file should be sent.

options CsvExportOptions

A CsvExportOptions object which specifies the CSV export options to be applied when a document is exported.


Once the document export has started, it will run until the resulting document is complete and cannot be interrupted or canceled in the process.

Use this method to export a document to a CSV format using the specified CSV export options (e.g. TextExportOptionsBase.Encoding, TextExportOptionsBase.Separator and so on).

Note that in this instance the current printing system's export options, which are represented by the CsvExportOptions object returned by the ExportOptions.Csv property of a printing system's PrintingSystemBase.ExportOptions, are ignored.

If, instead, you want to use the current export options of a printing system, you should call the overloaded PrintingSystemBase.ExportToCsv method without the options parameter.
