Exports a document to the specified file path in CSV format using the defined CSV-specific options.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPrinting

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


public void ExportToCsv(
    string filePath,
    CsvExportOptions options
Public Sub ExportToCsv(
    filePath As String,
    options As CsvExportOptions


Name Type Description
filePath String

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

options CsvExportOptions

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


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

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

Note that in this instance the current printing system 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.


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