A TextExportMode enumeration value, specifying the text export mode in the resulting XLS document.

Available values:

Name Description

Exports all data fields to the XLS (or XLSX) file using the same formatting as they have in the original document.

WPF Controls ExportOptionsContainer
.Xlsx.TextExportMode

Remarks

Use the TextExportMode property to specify whether to use both the .NET and native XLSX formatting of the data fields in the bound dataset for the cells in the exported XLS (or, XLSX) document. Note that if the TextExportMode property is set to Text, all data fields are exported to the XLS (or, XLSX) file as strings, with the corresponding formatting embedded into those strings.

NOTE

Unfortunately, not all .NET format strings have their equivalents in XLS format. If exact conversion is impossible, the XtraPrinting Library tries to find a string that best resembles the original. For example, the .NET "n4" format that represents a numerical value with 4 decimal places, will be converted as "n2", to represent this numerical value with 2 decimal places, since the XLS format doesn't have a built-in numerical format with 3 or 4 decimal places.
