Name Type Description
optionsLayout PivotGridWebOptionsLayout

A PivotGridWebOptionsLayout object that specifies which options should be saved.


Type Description

A String that specifies the string to which the pivot grid layout has been written.


Use this SaveLayoutToString method overload to save specific settings of a pivot grid to a string. These settings can be restored later, via the ASPxPivotGrid.LoadLayoutFromString method.

The optionsLayout parameter determines which options should be saved to the string. For the pivot grid control, you can create a PivotGridWebOptionsLayout object, customize it as required, and then pass it, as the optionsLayout parameter. Only options enabled in this object will be saved.

To save all the options, pass null (Nothing in Visual Basic) or the static PivotGridWebOptionsLayout.FullLayout property as the optionsLayout parameter.

The SaveLayoutToString overload without the optionsLayout parameter saves only options specified by the ASPxPivotGrid.OptionsLayout property.


The expansion states of field values are not saved by the SaveLayoutToString method.
