A string that specifies the full path to the file to which the View's data will be exported.


This method is obsolete. Although the ExportToTextOld method can still be used in your applications to export data, we recommend you use the GridControl.ExportToText method instead. Note that the GridControl.ExportToText requires the XtraPrinting Library to be available.

The ExportToTextOld method calls the BaseView.ExportToTextOld method for the Default View. The default View is specified by the GridControl.DefaultView property. See the BaseView.ExportToTextOld topic for more information.

See Export Overview for general information on exporting data.
