PrintingSystemBase.ExportToCsv(String) Method

Exports a document to the specified file path in CSV format.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPrinting

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


public void ExportToCsv(
    string filePath
Public Sub ExportToCsv(
    filePath As String


Name Type Description
filePath String

A String which specifies the file name (including the full path) for the created CSV file.


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 file using its current CSV-specific export options. These options are represented by the CsvExportOptions object returned by the ExportOptions.Csv property of a printing system's PrintingSystemBase.ExportOptions. This object provides the TextExportOptionsBase.Encoding, TextExportOptionsBase.Separator and other properties which are intended to specify parameters of the resulting CSV file.

If you want to ignore current export options of a printing system, and use your specific settings when a document is exported to CSV, you should use the overloaded PrintingSystemBase.ExportToCsv method with the options parameter.


This method overwrites any files present at the specified path that have the same file name without any warnings.
