Csv Export use CRLF instead of LF

Is there a way to get the CSV export in the react grid to use CRLF (\r) instead of just (LF) for new lines

From your query, we understood that you want to use “CRLF” (\r) instead of using “LF” () on CSV exporting. We have prepared a sample and achieved your requirement by using excelQueryCellInfo event of Grid. Inside this event you can customize the column values as per your requirement. Please refer the below code and sample for your reference.


excelQueryCellInfo(args) {


if (args.column.field === 'ShipCity') {

      var split = args.value.split(' ');

      var newString = '';

      for (var i = 0; i < split.length; i++) {

        newString += '\r' + split[i];


      args.value = newString;

Hi Vinitha,

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I think there was a misunderstanding about what I wanted. 

Currently, when you click CSV export you get something like this

But I want this

I want to change the line endings of each row of the csv not change the newline format of multiline strings inside a csv

Is there a way to do this?

Hi Jonathan,

To validate further could you please share the below details which will be helpful for us to check the feasibility of your requirement.

  1. Are you using any Localization in your sample?
  2. If yes, please share the code example.

Hi Pavithra,

We are not using any localization

Any update on this? I got an email today about an ASP.net control bug that sounded similar. But my problem is with the react component.

We have confirmed and logged this as a bug in the component. So, we have considered ”Modify to \r as line separators in Grid to CSV export” as a defect and logged a report for the same. We will include the defect fix in our upcoming patch release, which is expected to be rolled out on Dec 07th, 2022,.

You can now track the status of your request, review the proposed resolution timeline, and contact us for any further inquiries through this link.
