i got the following problem, using the latest version of primefaces extensions (6.1.0) with Primefaces (6.1). If i use the original "Exporter" shipped with Primefaces, columns with exportFunction will be handled correctly and the downloadable file (file.xls for example) will have the data returned by this function, if available.
Primefaces Extention Exporter, on the other hand, ignores this optional setting and always returns the cell value defined under the column tag. Is this a known limitation or simply a bug, which will be fixed soon?
My problem with complex datatables is, that in some cases you cannot export the stuff from a table cell directly and the Primefaces Exporter has the ability to overcome this limitation by using exportFunctions. But Primefaces Exporter do not has the neat customization features like the Primefaces Extension Exporter
So, currently i have to decide:
- Customizable cell value output (Primefaces Exporter) or
- Customizable Exporter (Primefaces Extension Exporter)
Would be nice if Primefaces Extension Exporter could also make use of exportFunction.
Have a nice day
