    I'm using ActiveReportsJS, specifically the React components to build a reports designer in my app. I'd like to enable users to export a newly designed template as a .rdlx-json file, that will then be stored elsewhere.

    In the standalone designer application (desktop app), there's a way to do this: File -> Save As -> save as rdlx-json file. Is it possible to have this same functionality in my React implementation on the browser? I see the documentation for building a custom File menu dropdown, but not for saving as json file.

    I need to be able to save templates that can later be loaded and exported with loading the report into the designer or viewer.

    You could use the "getReport" method of the designer instance to get the current report definition and save it in a preferred location. https://www.grapecity.com/activereportsjs/api/classes/ReportDesigner.Designer#getreport
