ASPxPivotGrid.SaveCollapsedStateToStream(Stream) Method

Saves the collapsed state of field values to the specified stream.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web.ASPxPivotGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.ASPxPivotGrid.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Web


public void SaveCollapsedStateToStream(
    Stream stream


Name Type Description
stream Stream

A Stream descendant to which the collapsed state of field values is saved.


The saved settings can then be restored using the ASPxPivotGrid.LoadCollapsedStateFromStream method.


The collapsed states for server mode and regular data sources are stored in different formats and not compatible with each other. Some issues can appear on restoring the collapsed state from different data source modes.


Field values' collapsed states can be restored only in the same layout they have been saved in. This example shows how to save and load a control's layout together with collapsed states to ensure that the states are loaded in the appropriate layout.
