PrintingSystemBase.ExportToXls(String, XlsExportOptions) Method

Exports a report to the specified file path in XLS format using the defined XLS-specific options.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPrinting

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


public void ExportToXls(
    string filePath,
    XlsExportOptions options
Public Sub ExportToXls(
    filePath As String,
    options As XlsExportOptions


Name Type Description
filePath String

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

options XlsExportOptions

An XlsExportOptions object which specifies the XLS export options to be applied when a report 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 report to an XLS file using the specified XLS export options (e.g. XlExportOptionsBase.ShowGridLines, XlExportOptionsBase.TextExportMode and so on).

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

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


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