Grid Toolbar CsvExport

Hello,

I have exported the content of the grid to a CSV file but it separates the columns with a ',' and I want them to be separated by a ';'. How can I do that?

Looking forward to hearing from you, 

Ane Perez de Nanclares

Hello, 

Here are the answers to the questions you made. If you need something else please tell me and I will send you all the information that you required as soon as possible. 
  • Where does the grid columns separated with the ‘,’? When you export the content of the grid to a CSV file the columns are separated by a ','. Here it is one example:
 
  • Please provide the exact steps to achieve your scenario?
<ejs-grid #grid id='Grid' [dataSource]='data' [toolbar]='toolbar' [allowExcelExport]='true' (toolbarClick)='clickHandler($event)'>

In the .ts:

import { GridComponent, FilterSettingsModel, IFilter, ExcelExportService, ToolbarItems } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-grids';
import { ClickEventArgs } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-navigations';

@Component({
selector: 'app-system-logs',
templateUrl: './system-logs.component.html',
styleUrls: ['./system-logs.component.css'],
providers: [ ExcelExportService]
})
export class ----Component implements OnInit {

toolbar: ToolbarItems[];
@ViewChild('grid')
grid: GridComponent;

constructor() {}

ngOnInit() {
this.toolbar = ['CsvExport'];
}

getContent() {
this.data = [
{ ------------------------------ },
{ ------------------------------ },
{ ------------------------------ }
];
}

clickHandler(args: ClickEventArgs): void {
console.log('Grid: ', args.item.id);
if (args.item.id === 'Grid_csvexport') {
this.grid.csvExport();
}
}

}

Hi Ane, 

We would like to inform you that by default a CSV (comma-separated values) file contains the values in a table as a series of ASCII text lines organized so that each column value is separated by a comma from the next column's value and each row starts a new line. Please refer the general documentation link below, 

So if you open the .csv, by default it will display as a comma separated value. Please get back to us if you need further assistance.

Thavasianand S.
