Summary Display Modes

The type of the summary function calculated against a data field is specified by the data field's PivotGridFieldBase.SummaryType property. By default, summaries are displayed "as is".

Pivot Grid allows summary results to be presented in a custom manner. For instance, you can display the percentage of the totals and grand totals, or the absolute or percentage difference between current and preceding cells.

A data field's PivotGridFieldBase.SummaryDisplayType property allows you to choose one of the predefined summary display modes. By default, this property is set to PivotSummaryDisplayType.Default, indicating that summary values are displayed "as is".

See the following topics to learn more about predefined summary display modes provided by ASPxPivotGrid.


To provide a custom presentation of summaries, handle the ASPxPivotGrid.CustomCellDisplayText event. To manually calculate summaries, handle the ASPxPivotGrid.CustomSummary event.
