When I tried to export data to Csv or xml from ui grid in magento2 it says:

1 exception(s): Exception #0 (Magento\Framework\Exception\LocalizedException): Invalid UI Component element name: ''

I had added export button. My code is given below:

<listingToolbar name="listing_top">
   <exportButton name="export_button">
        <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="selectProvider" xsi:type="string">custom_order_grid.custom_order_grid.custom_order_columns.ids</item>
            </item>
        </argument>
   </exportButton>
<listingToolbar>
  • What is "selectProvider"? I don't see this setting for exportButton component. – Sergii Ivashchenko Feb 3 '17 at 18:04

I have found the issue,

Inside columns tag, you need to have selectionsColumn .

<columns name="custom_order_grid_data_columns">
  <selectionsColumn name="ids">
        <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="indexField" xsi:type="string">id</item>
                <item name="sortOrder" xsi:type="number">10</item>
            </item>
        </argument>
    </selectionsColumn>
     <column name="column_name">
     .
     .
     </column>
</columns>

Once selectionsColumn is added the export works fine

Add below code in your custom grid XML

<container name="listing_top">
    <exportButton name="export_button">
        <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="selectProvider" xsi:type="string">custom_listing.custom_listing.custom_columns.ids</item>
            </item>
        </argument>
    </exportButton>
</container>
