[Data Grid Web] Export function does not work after filtering data in the list
Forge component by OutSystems R&D
Published on 14 Dec 2020
Application Type
Traditional Web


In the following situation the export (to Excel or other format) does not work anymore:

  1. Select one or more rows in the grid by using the check box selection
  2. Next, apply a column filter such that the checked rows are no longer part of the displayed data

Then the export function cannot be started anymore (right-click -> Export).

I have attached an example module. To reproduce:

  1. Check row numbers 4 and 5.
  2. Filter the LastName column so that it only shows value 'Last'.
  3. Notice that the export function does not work anymore.

Can you please take a look at this?

Hello Alfio,

We do have a problem on this component, when using checkboxes to select rows and filter / sort by some column, this row can be no more "available" and the features that try to access it will breaks.

A new issue was sent to the development team to be analyzed and properly fixed.

Thank you
