Property Value

Type Description

Initially, the Text property contains the text currently displayed in the summary. To provide custom text, assign it to the Text property.

Use the ASPxGridSummaryDisplayTextEventArgs.Value property to get the processed summary value.


The following example illustrates how to use the Text property.

Web Forms approach:


For a full example, refer to the How to implement summary whose value depends upon an external editor value online example.

<dx:ASPxGridView ID="ASPxGridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
        ClientInstanceName="grid" DataSourceId="AccessDataSource1" KeyFieldName="CategoryID"        
        OnSummaryDisplayText="ASPxGridView1_SummaryDisplayText" Width="552px">
    <Settings ShowFooter="True"></Settings>
        <dx:ASPxSummaryItem SummaryType="Sum" FieldName="CategoryID" ShowInColumn="CategoryID"></dxwgv:ASPxSummaryItem>
        <dx:GridViewDataTextColumn FieldName="CategoryID" ReadOnly="True" VisibleIndex="0">
            <EditFormSettings Visible="False"></EditFormSettings>
        <dx:GridViewDataTextColumn FieldName="CategoryName" VisibleIndex="1"></dxwgv:GridViewDataTextColumn>
        <dx:GridViewDataTextColumn FieldName="Description" VisibleIndex="2"></dxwgv:GridViewDataTextColumn>

MVC approach:


For a full example, refer to the How to provide custom summary texts within GridView online example.

Html.DevExpress().GridView(settings => {
    settings.Name = "dxGridView";
    settings.GroupSummary.Add(DevExpress.Data.SummaryItemType.Count, "ShipName");
    settings.TotalSummary.Add(DevExpress.Data.SummaryItemType.Sum, "UnitPrice").DisplayFormat = "c";
    settings.SummaryDisplayText = (sender, e) => {
        if(e.Item.FieldName == "UnitPrice")
            e.Text = string.Format("Sum of unit price: ${0}", Convert.ToDouble(e.Value));
        if(e.Item.FieldName == "ShipName")
            e.Text = string.Format("Count of records: {0}", Convert.ToDouble(e.Value));
