Features and limitations

Try all the features, implement your own data export




  • Export module DataTablesExportData from this project and import it into your own project
  • Change microflow ACT_DataTablesExportData to match your datatables context entity, or create your own.


See examples on how to configure the export.

Known bugs

When switching the browser between maximized and windowed, the headers and data columns may be misaligned. Resize the window by dragging a border or refreshing the grid solves this. 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: Why is a separate module necessary for the export?
  • A: The client only has one page of data. A full export requires the data to be read in full.
