Syntax

public void ExportToXls(
    Stream stream,
    XlsExportOptions options
)

Parameters

Type Name Description
Stream stream

A Stream object to which the created XLS file should be sent.

XlsExportOptions options

A 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 (like XlExportOptionsBase.ShowGridLines, XlExportOptionsBase.TextExportMode, etc.).

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 report's XtraReport.ExportOptions, are ignored.

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