Remarks

The CustomCellValue event fires for each cell. You can handle it to replace the calculated cell values with custom ones. Use the event parameter's PivotCellEventArgsBase<TField, TData, TCustomTotal>.SummaryValue property to obtain the summary value calculated for the cell. The custom cell value should be provided to the PivotCellEventArgsBase<TField, TData, TCustomTotal>.Value property.

Use the event parameter's PivotCellEventArgsBase<TField, TData, TCustomTotal>.ColumnField, PivotCellEventArgsBase<TField, TData, TCustomTotal>.DataField and PivotCellEventArgsBase<TField, TData, TCustomTotal>.RowField properties to obtain the column, data and row fields that correspond to the processed cell, respectively. The PivotCellEventArgsBase<TField, TData, TCustomTotal>.ColumnIndex and PivotCellEventArgsBase<TField, TData, TCustomTotal>.RowIndex properties are used to obtain the visual indices of the column and row that contain the cell.

You can also provide custom display text by handling the ASPxPivotGrid.CustomCellDisplayText event, which is raised after the CustomCellValue event.

NOTE

Values provided with the CustomCellValue event cannot be used to sort data according to the PivotGridFieldBase.SortBySummaryInfo object's settings.

Examples

This example shows how to calculate a percent of a current cell related to the first row value, regardless of the current sorting.

To accomplish this task, handle the ASPxPivotGrid.CustomCellValue event. To obtain a cell value, address it. Create arrays of row and column values corresponding to the desired cell, and call the PivotCellEventArgsBase<TField, TData, TCustomTotal>.GetCellValue method, passing them in arguments.

The image below shows the result.
