ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer Class

A client-side equivalent of the ASPxWebDocumentViewer class.

Declaration

declare class ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer extends ASPxClientControl

Methods

Cast(obj) Method

Converts the specified object to the current object’s type. This method is effective when you utilize the Client API IntelliSense feature provided by DevExpress.

Declaration

static Cast(
    obj: any
): ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer

Parameters

Name Type Description
obj any

The client object to be type cast. Represents an instance of a DevExpress web control’s client object.

Returns

Type Description
ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer

An ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer object.

Remarks

The Cast method is implemented as a part of the JavaScript IntelliSense support for DevExpress ASP.NET controls and MVC extensions. So, using the Cast method is sensible when you intend to use IntelliSense during writing JavaScript code at design time with the help of the DevExpress client API.

A call to the Cast method (which is a static method) casts the specified client object to the ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer type. As a result, the object’s type is now known and ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer type specific IntelliSense information can be displayed for this client object, facilitating your coding.

The examples of this method application are as follows.

  • Converting the event source object passed to a client event’s handler:

    ...
    <ClientSideEvents Init="function(s, e) { 
        var clientObject = ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer.Cast(s);
    }" />
    
  • Converting a client object accessed by using the value of the ClientInstanceName (or ID) property. For instance, if a web control’s ClientInstanceName property is set to ‘ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer1’, the object can be type cast in the following manner:

    ...
    var clientObject = ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer.Cast('ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer1');
    

Close Method

Closes the document that is currently open in the Web Document Viewer.

Declaration

Close(): void

Remarks

The Close method closes the displayed document and leaves the Document Viewer empty. Call this method to release memory allocated on the server (storage and cache) when the user closes the page that contains the Document Viewer control.

The following code calls the Close method when a page (or UI region) window is about to close and unload its resources. The code uses jQuery API and handles the BeforeRender event.

function onBeforeRender(s, e) {
  $(window).on('beforeunload', function(e) {
    s.Close();
});

DrillThrough(customData) Method

Enables navigation between drill-through reports on the client-side.

Declaration

DrillThrough(
    customData: string
): JQueryPromise<any>

Parameters

Name Type Description
customData string

Provides access to custom client data associated with a currently previewed report.

Returns

Type Description
JQueryPromise<any>

A Deferred Promise object.

Remarks

Use this method to provide drill-through functionality to web reports. The customData parameter specifies the navigation logic.

To process mouse events related to report elements on the client, handle the client-side ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer.PreviewClick event.

On the server-side, implement the IWebDocumentViewerDrillThroughProcessor interface and register it by calling the DefaultWebDocumentViewerContainer.RegisterWebDocumentViewerDrillThroughProcessor<T> method at the application startup.

For a code sample, see How to provide drill-through functionality to web reports.

ExportTo Method

Exports the document to the specified file format.

Declaration

ExportTo(
    format?: string,
    inlineResult?: boolean
): void

Parameters

Name Type Description
format string

A string value that specifies the export format. The DevExpress.Reporting.Viewer.ExportFormatID enumeration lists supported formats.

inlineResult boolean

true, to inform the browser to display a file instead of download; otherwise, false.

Remarks

The method performs a callback that exports a document to the specified format and sends the resulting file to the client browser.

The first method’s parameter is the DevExpress.Reporting.Viewer.ExportFormatID value. The second parameter (inlineResult) determines whether the browser attempts to display the exported document or the browser downloads the file. If the inlineResult parameter is set to true, but the browser does not handle the specified format, the resulting file is downloaded.

Tip

Handle the CustomizeExportOptions event to specify export options.

The Web Document Viewer can export a document asynchronously (export operations are run in the background). To switch to the asynchronous export mode, set the AsyncExportApproach to true. Asynchronous export action opens a new page with a progress indicator.

The code snippet below demonstrates how to hide the Export Options panel, add a button to export the report to a file in XLSX format, and specify the export options.

Client-Side ExportTo Method

The following code snippet demonstrates how to remove the Export command in the Document Viewer UI, add a button to export the report to a file in XLSX format, and specify the SingleFilePageByPage export mode:

<asp:Content ID="Content" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" runat="server">
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function ExportOnClick(s, e) {
            WebDocumentViewer1.ExportTo('xlsx');
        }
        function ConfigureExportOptions(s, e) {
            e.HideExportOptionsPanel();
            var model = e.GetExportOptionsModel(DevExpress.Reporting.Viewer.ExportFormatID.XLS);
            model.xlsExportMode('SingleFilePageByPage');
        }
</script>
    <dx:ASPxButton ID="ASPxButton1" runat="server" Text="ASPxButton" AutoPostBack="False">
        <ClientSideEvents Click="ExportOnClick" />
    </dx:ASPxButton>
<dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer ClientInstanceName="WebDocumentViewer1" ID="ASPxWebDocumentViewer1" runat="server">
    <ClientSideEvents CustomizeExportOptions = "ConfigureExportOptions" />
</dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer>
</asp:Content>

GetCurrentPageIndex Method

Returns the current page’s zero-based index.

Declaration

GetCurrentPageIndex(): number

Returns

Type Description
number

A zero-based integer value that specifies the index of a current page.

Remarks

The code snippet below demonstrates how to use the ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer.DocumentReady event to navigate through pages of a ready document. To obtain the current page number and navigate to the next page, use the GetCurrentPageIndex and ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer.GoToPage methods.

<script type="text/javascript" id="script">
    function documentReady(s, e) {
        var goToNextPage = function () {
            var pageIndex = s.GetCurrentPageIndex();
            if (e.PageCount <= pageIndex)
                return;
            s.GoToPage(pageIndex + 1);
            setTimeout(function () { goToNextPage(); }, 3000);

Declaration

GetParametersModel(): DevExpress.Reporting.Viewer.Parameters.PreviewParametersViewModel

Returns

Type Description
PreviewParametersViewModel

An object that specifies the report parameters model.

Remarks

The GetParametersModel method returns the parameter model that allows you to modify report parameters on the client before the user submits them.

Example - Obtain Parameter Value

The following code obtains the parameter1 value that the user enters in the parameter editor:

<script type="text/javascript">
function getClientParameter() {
    var parametersModel = documentViewer.GetParametersModel();
    var value = parametersModel['parameter1']();  
}
</script>

<dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer ClientInstanceName="documentViewer" 
    ID="ASPxWebDocumentViewer1" runat="server">            
</dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer>

Example - Obtain Parameter Values for a Multi-Value Parameter

The following code obtains values that the user selects in the multi-value parameter editor:

<script type="text/javascript">
function getClientParameter() {
    var parametersModel = documentViewer.GetParametersModel();
    var selectedValuesArray = parametersModel['MyMultiSelectParameterName']().value();  
    var firstValue = selectedValuesArray[0]; 
}
</script>

<dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer ClientInstanceName="documentViewer" 
    ID="ASPxWebDocumentViewer1" runat="server">            
</dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer>

Example - Change Parameter Value When Another Parameter Value Changes

The following code automatically assigns a value to parameter pDateRange2 when the user specifies a value for parameter pDateRange1. The pDateRange2 date range is set one year behind the pDateRange1, but the user can change the pDateRange2 parameter freely in the Preview Parameters panel.

<script type="text/javascript">
    function onInit(s, e) {
        var parametersModel = s.GetParametersModel();
        // Get the first parameter and specify a function to execute when its value changes.
        parametersModel['pDateRange1'].subscribe(function (newValue) {
            var fromDate = new Date();
            var toDate = new Date();
            fromDate.setTime(newValue[0].getTime());
            toDate.setTime(newValue[1].getTime());
            //Add one year to the date range.
            fromDate.setFullYear(fromDate.getFullYear() + 1);
            toDate.setFullYear(toDate.getFullYear() + 1);
            //Assign modified values to the second parameter.
            parametersModel['pDateRange2']([fromDate, toDate]);
        });

): void

Parameters

Name Type Description
pageIndex number

An index of the page to be printed. If the page index is not specified, the entire document is printed.

Remarks

The method renders the report in PDF server side and returns PDF data to the Document Viewer, which then passes them to the browser. If the PDF plug-in is installed, the Print dialog displays the following:

If the PDF plug-in is unavailable, the Document Viewer exports the report document to a PDF file, and initiates the download instead of printing. The resulting PDF file contains a script that starts printing when the PDF viewer opens the file.

The following code demonstrates how to create a button that prints the Document Viewer’s report:

<asp:Content ID="Content" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" runat="server">
    <script type="text/javascript">

Tip

You can use the satellite resource assemblies to translate text strings and then adjust the translation by handling the CustomizeLocalization event.

<script type="text/javascript" id="script"> 
    function customizeLocalization(s) {
        s.UpdateLocalization({
            'Search': 'Suche',
            'Search result': 'Suchergebnisse',
            'Next Page' : 'Nächste Seite',
            'Export Options' : 'Exportoptionen'
        });
    }
</script> 

<dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer ID="ASPxWebDocumentViewer1" runat="server">
    <ClientSideEvents CustomizeLocalization="customizeLocalization"/>
</dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer>

Important

Localization strings are case sensitive. A string is translated if you use correct case to specify it.

On a web page localized string values may be capitalized in a different manner. E.g. the ‘Search result’ string is displayed as ‘SEARCH RESULT’.

To determine the localized string whose value you wish to change, look for the UI element with the browser’s Developer Tools, as illustrated in the following picture:

Example: Customize Export Commands

The following code performs custom actions when the user exports a document to specific formats (in this example, XLS and XLSX).

function CustomizeMenuActions(s, e) {
    // Get the "Export To" action.
    var actionExportTo = e.GetById(DevExpress.Reporting.Viewer.ActionId.ExportTo);

    if (actionExportTo) {
        actionExportTo.clickAction = function (arg) {
            if (arg.itemData.format === "xls" || arg.itemData.format === "xlsx") {
                // Custom export.
                //...                
            }
            else if (arg.itemData.format) {
                s.ExportTo(arg.itemData.format);
            }
        }
    }     
};

CustomizeParameterEditors Event

Allows you to customize parameter editors in the Parameters panel.

Declaration

CustomizeParameterEditors: ASPxClientEvent<ASPxClientWebDocumentViewerCustomizeParameterEditorsEventHandler<ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer>>

Event Data

The CustomizeParameterEditors event's data class is ASPxClientCustomizeParameterEditorsEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
info Provides access to an object that stores information required to serialize a parameter editor.
parameter Provides access to an object that stores information about a parameter.

Remarks

The client-side CustomizeParameterEditors event allows you to customize parameter editors.

The handler function receives two parameters: the first parameter is the ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer object, the second is the ASPxClientCustomizeParameterEditorsEventArgs instance.

You can use a custom template or modify the editor’s extended options to specify a custom editor.

Example: Use Custom Template

Define a custom HTML template and use the info.editor property to specify a header variable with the template name.

The following example implements a custom dxNumberBox parameter editor with spin buttons limited by minimum and maximum values.

Custom Parameter Editor NumberBox

<script type ="text/html" id="categoryID-custom-editor">
    <div data-bind="dxNumberBox: { value: value, showSpinButtons: true, min: 1, max: 8 }"> </div>
</script>

<script type="text/javascript">
    function CustomizeParameterEditors(s, e) {
      if (e.parameter.name == "categoryID") {
          e.info.editor = { header: 'categoryID-custom-editor' };
        }

    }
</script>

<dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer ID="ASPxWebDocumentViewer1" runat="server">
    <ClientSideEvents CustomizeParameterEditors="CustomizeParameterEditors" />
</dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer>

See the following topic for more information: Provide Custom Editors for Report Parameters.

Example: Customize Editor Options

Use the info.editor.extendedOptions property to customize the DevExtreme control options.

The following example removes the time part from the calendar editor.

<script type="text/javascript">
    function CustomizeParameterEditors(s, e) {
      if (e.parameter.type === 'System.DateTime') {
          e.info.editor = $.extend({}, e.info.editor);
          e.info.editor.extendedOptions = $.extend(e.info.editor.extendedOptions || {}, { type: 'date' });
      }         
    }
</script>

<dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer ID="ASPxWebDocumentViewer1" runat="server">
    <ClientSideEvents CustomizeParameterEditors="CustomizeParameterEditors" />
</dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer>

Example: Validate Parameter Values

DevExtreme editors used in the Parameters panel allow you to validate the values that the user enters and make the parameter “required”.

The following code does not allow the user to leave the parameter1 editor blank, and accepts only even numbers.

function onCustomizeParameterEditors(s, e) {
    if (e.parameter.name === 'parameter1') {
        e.info.validationRules = [{
            type: 'custom',
            validationCallback: validateNumber,
            message: 'Only even numbers are allowed!'
        }];
    }
};
function validateNumber(e) {
    return (e.value != '') && (e.value % 2 == 0)
}; 

For more information on custom validation rules for DevExtreme editors, review the following help topic: CustomRule.

CustomizeParameterLookUpSource Event

Occurs each time a look-up editor is created for a report parameter.

Declaration

CustomizeParameterLookUpSource: ASPxClientEvent<ASPxClientWebDocumentViewerCustomizeParameterLookUpSourceEventHandler<ASPxClientWebDocumentViewer>>

Property Description
dataSource Specifies the data source that provides look-up values for the parameter editor.
items Provides access to the collection of look-up parameter values.
parameter Provides access to an object that stores information about a parameter.

Remarks

Handle the CustomizeParameterLookUpSource event to customize lookup parameter values.

Example: Specify Lookup Editor Data Sources

The following code specifies a controller route, a JSON resource, and a simple array as report parameter’s data sources on the client. The CustomizeParameterEditors event is handled to specify the data source fields for the lookup editor.

<script type="text/javascript">
    var products = [
        "HD Video Player",
        "SuperHD Video Player",
        "SuperPlasma 50"
    ].map(function (val) { return { value: val, displayValue: val }; });

    function customParameterLookUpSource(s, e) {
        if (e.parameter.name == "parameter1") {
            e.dataSource = "/Home/GetData";
        };
        if (e.parameter.name == "parameter2") {
            e.dataSource = "https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/users";
        };
        if (e.parameter.name == "parameter3") {
            e.dataSource = products;
        }  
    }

    function customizeParameterEditors(s, e) {
        if (e.parameter.name == "parameter2") {
            e.info.editor = $.extend({}, e.info.editor);
            e.info.editor.extendedOptions = $.extend(e.info.editor.extendedOptions || {}, {
                valueExpr: 'username',
                displayExpr: 'name'
            });
        }
    }
</script>
<dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer ClientInstanceName="documentViewer" 
    ID="ASPxWebDocumentViewer1" runat="server">
  <ClientSideEvents CustomizeParameterLookUpSource="customParameterLookUpSource" 
      CustomizeParameterEditors="customizeParameterEditors" />
</dx:ASPxWebDocumentViewer>

Example: Sort Lookup Values

The following example demonstrates how to sort lookup values of the categoryName parameter based on a custom rule. Declare an array that has category names in a sequence based on the required criterion. Check the parameter property of the event argument to identify the parameter. Access lookup values for that parameter with the items property and sort the values with a custom sorting function. The function compares indexes of categories in the array. Pass the result to the dataSource property to apply changes.

<dx:AspxWebDocumentViewer ID="AspxWebDocumentViewer1" runat="server">
    <ClientSideEvents CustomizeParameterLookUpSource="function(s, e) {
        var sortRule = ['Produce', 'Meat/Poultry', 'Dairy Products',
            'Grains/Cereals', 'Seafood', 'Confections', 'Condiments', 'Beverages'];

        if(e.parameter.name == 'categoryName') {
            e.items.sort(function(a, b) { 
                if (sortRule.indexOf(a.value) > sortRule.indexOf(b.value)) {
                    return 1;
                }
                if (sortRule.indexOf(a.value) < sortRule.indexOf(b.value)) {
                    return -1;
                }
                return 0;
            });
            e.dataSource = new DevExpress.data.DataSource({ store: e.items});
        }
    }"/>

The example below illustrates how to ask the user to confirm an operation related to expanding/collapsing data in a drill-down report and navigating to a URL. The IBrickNode.navigation property provides access to a brick’s navigation settings. Use the ASPxClientPreviewClickEventArgs.Handled property to specify whether or not default processing (specified by the ASPxClientPreviewClickEventArgs.DefaultHandler function) is required, depending on the confirmation result.

<script type="text/javascript" id="script">
    function previewClick(s, e) {
        if (!e.Brick)
            return
        var navigation = e.Brick.navigation;
        if (navigation) {
            var ok = true;
            if (navigation.drillDownKey) {
                ok = confirm('Are you sure you want to expand/collapse data?');
            } else if (navigation.url) {
                ok = confirm('Are you sure you want to navigate to the following URL: ' + navigation.url);
            }
            e.Handled = !ok;
        }
    }
