Hi, I am trying to use the GroupingGridExcelConverter to export to Excel. But when I do, I get an error. Here is the code I use for converting:

Dim converter As Syncfusion.GroupingGridExcelConverter.GroupingGridExcelConverterControl = New Syncfusion.GroupingGridExcelConverter.GroupingGridExcelConverterControl()
converter.GroupingGridToExcel(Me.GridGroupingControl1, FilePhysicalPath, Syncfusion.GridExcelConverter.ConverterOptions.Default)

And, here is the error:

Font.Size out of range. Size must be less then 409 and greater than 1.
Parameter name: Font.Size
Actual value was 0.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Font.Size out of range. Size must be less then 409 and greater than 1.
Parameter name: Font.Size
Actual value was 0.


Where do I set the Font.Size that it is complaining about?

Thanks.

Hi Kathy,

Thank you for posting your query to us.

I am afraid that I am not able to reproduce your issue. I have attached the sample under which I tried to reproduce the issue and the sample is available here.

Please have a look at the above sample and if still the issue exists, could you please try reproducing it
in the above sample or send us the reproducing steps so that we could sort out the cause of the issue
and provide you a solution?

Regards,

The project at this address is a vb.net project. I am using this in asp.net. Would it be the same code?

Hi Kathy,

I have created a sample that converts a grid data to Excel sheet. The sample is available in the following link.

http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/ExcelExport_VB_c19be0b0.zip

Please run the sample and let me know if this helps you.

Regards,

I am getting the same exact error. Only I am getting it trying to convert from a web grid, not a windows grid. I am also using your exact example on your website on how to go about exporting. The only difference in the code below is I have changed the name of the grid on my web page to "grdDefault". This is C# code. I have about one hour remaining today before I am expected to present my findings on should we dump Infragistics libraries and completely migrate our code to Syncfusion's. This is the only thing holding up my ability to finish my proposal. It would be wonderful if I could get a reply on this today, not only for the company I work for but also for Syncfusion. Now is your time time shine, given the problems we've been having with Infragistics. You need to shine all the way in order for me to convince the powers that be that we should migrate to Syncfusion. Thanks, Perry



GroupingGridExcelConverterControl ggExcelConverter = new GroupingGridExcelConverterControl();
// ExcelEngine provides access to XLSIO application interface
ExcelEngine excelEngine = new ExcelEngine();
IApplication application = excelEngine.Excel;
// Excel workbook
IWorkbook myWorkbook = excelEngine.Excel.Workbooks.Add();
IWorksheet mySheet1 = myWorkbook.Worksheets[0];
// To convert only the visible contents , set ConverterOptions to Visible
ggExcelConverter.GroupingGridToExcel(this.grdDefault, mySheet1, ConverterOptions.Visible);
myWorkbook.SaveAs("Sample.xls", ExcelSaveType.SaveAsXLS, Response, ExcelDownloadType.PromptDialog);
excelEngine.ThrowNotSavedOnDestroy = false;
excelEngine.Dispose();

Try explicitly setting the fontsize property on your grid using code similar to this to see if this will resolve this issue:

Me.GridGroupingControl1.Appearance.AnyCell.Font.Size = 10

Yes, this worked, however it is showing black background with black fonts. I think I will continue this post in your Direct-Trac system for the other issues. Thanks,Perry

I'm having the exact same problem: First the exception, then the black font on black background. Was there a resolution for this?

Hi Denis,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We have included some new features for ExcelExporting with our Vol 4 release. All formatting and Autoformat skins are exported to the Excel file. It won't throw any exception, and also there is no black background.

We will be updating you with the download link, once it is published.

Thanks for your patience.
