Serial no on grid with json object data


I am using Angular Grid in my Angular 8 Project.

I have implemented Serial No by using template and data index but there are no values in my data (as object) against Serial No field.

Now serial is visible on my grid but when I export grid as excel, then Sr. No column comes empty.

Can you please share any way by which I can add serial no column in my grid, which is also visible during excel export.

Below is the column which I have used for Serial No.

Best Regards,
Ankit Pathak

                <e-column [headerText]="column.headerText" [width]="column.width" textAlign='Center'
                    *ngIf="column.columnType=='SERIALNO'" [visible]="column.visible">
                    <ng-template #template let-d>
                        <div>{{ +d.index+1 }}</div>

Hi Nagendra, 

Based on your requirement, you want to export with the serial number (text value by using column-template) in the excel file. We suggest you to use excelQueryCellInfo event to customize the text value while export the template column (“SerialNo”). Find the below code example and sample for more information. 

      <e-column field="SerialNo" headerText="Serial No" width="150"> 
        <ng-template #template let-data> 

export class AppComponent { 
  public serialNo: any = -1; 
  toolbarClick(args: ClickEventArgs): void { 
    if (args.item.text === "Excel Export") { 
      this.serialNo = 0; // initialize the serial No 
  excelQueryCellInfo(args) { 
    if (args.column.field == "SerialNo") { 
      args.value = (this.serialNo + 1).toString(); // bind the serial No in the excel cell 
      this.serialNo++; // increase the serial No 

In the above code example, we stored the Serial No in a reference variable and dynamically export the SerialNo in the excel cell and increase the SerialNo using excelQueryCellInfo event. 

Please get back to us if you need further assistance with this.
