Event Data

The CustomSummaryCalculate event's data class is CustomSummaryEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
FieldValue Gets the processed field value.
GroupLevel Gets the nested level of the group whose summary value is being calculated.
GroupRowHandle Gets a value identifying the group row whose child data rows are involved in summary calculation.
IsGroupSummary Gets whether a group summary value is being calculated.

The event data class exposes the following methods:

Method Description
GetGroupSummary(Int32, Object) Returns the value of the specified group summary for the specified group row.
GetValue(String) Returns the value in the specified field


Total summaries and group summaries provide five predefined aggregate functions. These functions allow you to calculate the number of rows, the maximum and minimum values, the sum and the average value. If you need to calculate a summary value using an aggregate function not included in the predefined set, set the summary item’s ASPxSummaryItemBase.SummaryType property to Custom and handle the CustomSummaryCalculate event.

The CustomSummaryCalculate event fires for each row involved in summary calculation. When calculating a total summary value, the event is raised for each data row (column or record). When calculating a group summary value for the ASPxGridView, the event fires for each data row within the currently processed group.

Additionally, the event is raised before and after processing rows. This can be used to perform any initialization and finalization.


  • The custom summary calculation option is not available in server mode. Please refer to the Data Binding to Large Data via XPO help topic for more information.
