Grid with virtualization get filtered Data


I am currently working with javascript (ES5 v.17.1.49) and I have a Grid with  "enableVirtualization" set to true.
When I filter the data and try to export it I only have access to :
  • dataSource
  • getSelectedRowIndexes()
  • currentViewData
But the currentViewData has only what is display on screen and not the whole data filtered (ex: 70 records before filter, 55 after filter, and 42 inside the currentViewData);

How can I get the list of filteredData record so I can export/work with it?

Thank you,

Hi Bernard, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

By default, Grid will export the given dataSource even after filtering several columns or doing anyother actions. But in the toolbarClick event, we can generate a query and execute them on the Grid dataSource. Later, the result will be given to the pdfExport method as the Export Properties. Refer to the following code example.  

    var grid = new ej.grids.Grid({ 
        dataSource: orderData, 
        allowFiltering: true, 
        allowPdfExport: true, 
        filterSettings: { type: 'Excel' }, 
        toolbar: ['PdfExport'], 
        toolbarClick: function (args) { 
            if (args.item.text === 'PDF Export') { 
                let query = grid.renderModule.data.generateQuery(true); // get grid corresponding query 
                grid.getDataModule().executeQuery(query).then((e) => { 
                    grid.pdfExport({ dataSource: e.result });  //Export the filtered data. 
                }).catch((e) => { 
        enableVirtualization: true, 
        height: 400, 
         . . .  
            . . . 

Note: If Grid in filtered state only you will get the filtered data while export. Otherwise you will get the entire dataSource in the result.
