Follow the steps below to configure a header/footer:

  1. Call the exportDataGrid(options) method.

  2. Use the following API to specify header/footer layout settings:

    • For a header
      Use the topLeft object to specify a start position for DataGrid export. This position should be below the header.

    • For a footer
      Use the customDrawCell function to calculate the coordinates of the last right cell of the DataGrid.

  3. Execute a promise after the exportDataGrid(options) method. In this promise, specify position and appearance of the header/footer.
