Ensure the objectid of the charts loaded are linked to the DOM object in which the object will be loaded.


  • Bind mouse events to the div

Bind each div with two mouse events mouseenter and mouseleave in  order to add/ remove an Export button


$(this).append("&lt;button id='"+ divid+objectid + "' class='export_data'&gt;Export&lt;/button&gt;")</p>
<p style="padding-left: 30px;"></p>
<p style="padding-left: 30px;">.</p>

Bind a click event to the export button so that click event retrieves the object id from the export-id attribute to fetch the object once more and use Table API to download the data. The options for export is given in Table API exportData function documentation

var d = app.table(model);
d.exportData({'format':'CSV_C','state':'A','filename': 'exportdata.csv','download': true})</p>

  1. Hi,

    I’m trying this out, just did a copy/paste of the codes in my mashup.
    I’m getting an access denied error each time a I click on the export button.

    I’m running the mashup in QAP by the way.

    Any idea why?
