XtraReport.ExportToMht(String, MhtExportOptions) Method

Exports a report to the specified file in MHT format.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.UI

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v20.1.dll


public void ExportToMht(
    string path,
    MhtExportOptions options = null
Public Sub ExportToMht(
    path As String,
    options As MhtExportOptions = Nothing


Name Type Description
path String

A String that is the full path to a file.

Optional Parameters

Name Type Default Description
options MhtExportOptions


A MhtExportOptions object that specifies the MHT export options. You can omit this parameter to use the current report export options.



Once the document export has started, it runs to completion and you cannot interrupt or cancel it.

This method exports a report to a MHT file with the specified MHT export options.

If the export options are not specified, the current report export options are used. To access the report export options, use the the report's XtraReport.ExportOptions property. The property contains the ExportOptions object whose ExportOptions.Mht property provides access to the MhtExportOptions object that contains the MHT export options.


This method overwrites files with the same name without confirmation.

Use the ExportToMhtAsync(String, MhtExportOptions, CancellationToken) method instead of ExportToMht to export a report asynchronously in a separate task.


This example demonstrates how to export a report to MHT format.

The project uses the XtraReport.ExportToMht method with the MhtExportOptions object as a parameter.


The complete sample project How to export a report to MHT format is available in the DevExpress Examples repository.
