In this article I will explain with an example, how to export HTML Table data to Excel file using AngularJS.
The HTML Table will be populated from a JSON array using AngularJS.
The HTML Table will be exported to Excel file using the jQuery table2excel plugin.
Exporting HTML Table to Excel file using AngularJS
The below HTML Markup consists of an HTML DIV to which ng-app and ng-controller AngularJS directives have been assigned.
The HTML DIV consists of an HTML Button and Table which will be populated from JSON array using ng-repeat directive.
Note: If you want to learn more about these directives please refer my article Introduction to AngularJS.
The Button has been assigned ng-click directive. When the Button is clicked, the Export function of the Controller gets called.
Note: If you want to learn more about ng-click directive, please refer my article ng-click directive example.
Generating the Table
Inside the Controller, an array of JSON objects is created and assigned to the Customers JSON array.
The ng-repeat directive as the name suggests repeats the element based on the length of the collection, in this scenario it will repeat the TR element (HTML Table Row).
The TBODY element of the HTML Table has been assigned ng-repeat directive in order to iterate through all the items of the Customers JSON array.
For each JSON object in the Customers JSON array, a TR element (HTML Table Row) is generated and appended into the HTML Table.
Exporting the Table to Excel
When the Export Button is clicked, the jQuery table2excel plugin is applied to the HTML Table. The jQuery table2excel plugin accepts filename parameter which sets the name of the Excel file.
Note: You will get a Warning message from Microsoft Excel application when you try to open the generated Excel file. This Warning is shown because the generated file is not a valid Excel format as the plugin simply exports the HTML content to an Excel file.
