Data Cell Layout

  • 2 minutes to read

The Pivot Grid allows you to create reports with an unlimited number of data fields. When there are two or more data fields, their headers are displayed to distinguish between different summary values. Data cells are located one after another as shown in the image below.


The location and orientation of data field headers is controlled by the Data header. This is a header which is linked with the data field headers. Like any other header, end-users can drag it to different locations to fine-tune a report. The content, size and availability of the Data header are controlled via the options provided by the pivot grid’s ASPxPivotGrid.OptionsDataField property.
