Note that the downloaded chart image will be in a PNG format.

Export Charts via Grid API

There are two ways to download the chart image using the Grid API as shown below:

You can use the downloadChart(params) API to download the chart image in the browser.

Alternatively for programmatic use-cases, the getChartImageDataURL(params) API returns the chart image as string (base64 encoded); this is ideal for persisting to a back-end, or opening/presenting the chart image statically.

The example below demonstrates how you can retrieve images rendered from the chart in multiple formats.

  • Click Download Chart Image (PNG) to download a PNG format image via getChartImageDataURL()
  • Click Download Chart Image (JPG 800x500) to download a custom size image via downloadChart()
  • Click Open Chart Image (JPG) to open a JPEG format image in a new window via getChartImageDataURL()
