Hi Arun Gandhi, 

We have used form submit action for exporting Grid and so full post will occur and it reloads the page While exporting the Grid. Without making full post, we are unable to download the exported Excel file. So it is not possible to have a waiting popup for the export action of Grid when using the default “export” method of the Grid. 

But we have achieved your requirement using Ajax call and localSave option of exporting. The localSave option can be enabled using one of the overload of the export method. Please refer to the below code example. 

<div id="Grid"></div> 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
    $(function () { 
        var data = @Html.Raw(Json.Encode(ViewBag.data)); 
            dataSource: data, 
               . . . . . . .  
            toolbarClick: function(args) {  
                var url = null; 
                if (args.itemName == "Excel Export") { 
                    args.cancel = true; 
                    url = "/Home/ExportToExcel"; 
                    . . .  . . 
                if (args.itemName.indexOf("Export") != -1) { 
                    var model = $.extend(true, {}, this.model); 
                    if (this.ignoreOnExport) { 
                        for (var i = 0; i < this.ignoreOnExport.length; i++) 
                            delete model[this.ignoreOnExport[i]]; 
                        type: "POST", 
                        url: url, 
                        data: { GridModel: JSON.stringify(model) },//pass the grid model 
                        dataType: "json", 
                        success: function (response) { 
                            alert("Grid Exported"); 
                        error: function (Result) { 
namespace Sample.Controllers 
    public partial class HomeController : Controller 
              . . . . . 
                   . . .  . 
        public ActionResult ExportToExcel(string GridModel) 
            GridProperties gridPropert = (GridProperties)Syncfusion.JavaScript.Utils.DeserializeToModel(typeof(GridProperties),GridModel); 
            ExcelExport exp = new ExcelExport(); 
            IEnumerable data = new NorthwindDataContext().OrdersViews.ToList(); 
            exp.Export(gridPropert, (IEnumerable)data, "Export.xlsx", ExcelVersion.Excel2010, false, false, "flat-lime",true,Server.MapPath("/outPut")); 
            return Json(new List<string>(), JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet); 
             . . . . . 
We have also prepared a sample that can be downloaded from the following location.

Any chance to have this without the localSave option? I think it's very important to give feddback to the customer while the file is exporting
