Is there any way to export all records in custom designed PCF dataset grid?
Context.parameters.dataset.records gets record for current page but i need to get all records , apply some logic and export data on click of custom command bar button. Export data part is handled but my core issue is to get all records without changing page size.
Any inputs are greatly appreciated!!
Hi @Goutham ,
If you don't want to load all records, I suppose you don't want to display it. Maybe a PCF is not the best fit for your purpose. What about using a CustomAPI to transform data, which you can call from your ribbon button? Or maybe a Virtual Entity (Table) where you can use the standard export possibilities?
Hope this helps!
Thank you @DianaBirkelbach !!
I need to display records in a view using custom PCF grid and export them but i see command bar buttons are not visible when using this custom dataset pcf control in dashboard. So , we are designing a custom "export to excel" functionality which is similar to OOB "export to excel". I was just checking for ways to retrieve all records in dataset without additional web API calls.
For now, I have to make another webApi calls to retrieve records and convert push to excel.
Hi @Goutham ,
Just want to check that you are aware of the dataset feature.
You don't need to use webAPI calls if you have a dataset PCF. You can use the dataset.paging (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/developer/component-framework/reference/paging?WT.mc_id=B...)
It's possible to set the pageSize to 5000 for your dataset, and load the next pages (loadNextPage or loadExactPage).
Hope it helps!
