Exporting All Records to Excel RRS feed

  • Question

  • First and foremost, many thanks to everyone who takes their valuable time in helping others learn. Your help is very much appreciated and doesn't go unnoticed...

    Just getting into Lightswitch and have one lingering issue I cannot figure out. I would like to export all records from my search screen, not just the ones that are on visible on page 1 (or page 2, or page 3). Disabling pagination could be a nightmare with hundreds or thousands of records.

    So I have a few questions:

    1. Is there a way to edit the code for the default Export button to export ALL the records, not just the visible ones?
    2. If the default export button code isn't editable, do I need to disable, "Export to Excel" in the screen designer before I create a custom button?
    3. If I need to create a custom button/method/execute code, any resources you could point me to would be much appreciated.
