23 Jan 2011, 7:02 AM
hi 2 all.
i have the simple formpanel, on submit I`ve send some params and at succcess I expect to make xls file and send it to browser (for open or save) by users. but in this case ajax coomunications failed, so as I`ve send some additional headers by server-side.
is any solutions for this problem
// yes, in princible it`s possible to save file at server and show user just link, but I guess it is not better solution

Can you clarify your question?

Is it "how do I send additional headers to the server?" This was answered yesterday - http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?121750-How-can-I-add-headers-to-getForm.Submit()-calls

Nothing else to do on Ext, just a simple call to the php server file, and there, you have all the freedom to make 100% what you wish by sending pure html (ONLY body content ! without <html><head>...<body> and </body><html>). Just what you will normally put in the between <body> and </body>. You can specify all the css you want, link on images, etc..
Good luck :-)

"no,guys" means that this don't work ?
heuh... because this works very well at at least 2-3 guys except me...
(I made 3 Excel for each grid, and I had, until now, more than 30 grids)... :-)
I don't now how to crash the Ajax??? There is no Ajax, There are only a simple window.open... with the phpurl, return then false... No need for Ajax call, because you don't need a json with... Nothing... The server, send the correct header !!! And the client browser, in return, propose Excel for opening the downloaded stuff...
Whatever... If this don't work write me pm. Not spending too much space here...
