DataSourceColumnBinding Class

Defines a data binding to a source data column.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web.ASPxPivotGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.ASPxPivotGrid.v22.1.dll

Declaration

public class DataSourceColumnBinding :
    DataSourceColumnBindingBase,
    IDataSourceViewSchemaAccessor

Remarks

Data binding to columns in the underlying data source is the traditional way to obtain data and display it in the Pivot Grid control.

You can use DataSourceColumnBinding in Optimized, Server, and OLAP data processing modes.

Examples

Optimized and Server Modes

Follow the steps below to bind a Pivot Grid field to a data source column in code:

  1. Create a DataSourceColumnBinding instance.
  2. Set the DataSourceColumnBindingBase.ColumnName property to the name of a data source column.
  3. Assign the DataSourceColumnBinding object to the PivotGridFieldBase.DataBinding property.

The code snippet below illustrates the Pivot Grid’s Extended Price field that is bound to the Extended_Price source column.

Run Demo: Calculated Fields

<dx:PivotGridField ID="fieldExtended_Price" Area="FilterArea" AreaIndex="0" Caption="Extended Price" >
    <DataBindingSerializable>
        <dx:DataSourceColumnBinding ColumnName="Extended_Price" />
    </DataBindingSerializable>
</dx:PivotGridField>

OLAP Mode

Follow the steps below to bind a Pivot Grid field to a measure or dimension in code:

  1. Create a DataSourceColumnBinding instance.
  2. Specify the DataSourceColumnBindingBase.ColumnName property. ColumnName must specify the full name of the bound measure or dimension.

    For dimensions, the full name is composed of a dimension name, followed by a hierarchy name, followed by the name of a level(s). All names should be wrapped within square brackets and separated from one another with the dot symbol. Example: “[Customer].[Customer Geography].[Country]”.

    For measures, the full name is composed of the “[Measures].” string followed by the measure name. Example: “[Measures].[Sales Amount]”.

  3. Assign the DataSourceColumnBinding object to the PivotGridFieldBase.DataBinding property.

The code snippet below illustrates the Product and Quantity Pivot Grid fields that are bound to the Products dimension and Quantity measure.

Run Demo: OLAP Browser

<dx:PivotGridField Area="RowArea" AreaIndex="1" Caption="Products" ID="field3" SortMode="None" >
    <DataBindingSerializable>
        <dx:DataSourceColumnBinding ColumnName="[Products].[Products].[Products]" />
    </DataBindingSerializable>
</dx:PivotGridField>
<dx:PivotGridField Area="DataArea" AreaIndex="0" Caption="Quantity" ID="field4" CellFormat-FormatString="#.##"
    CellFormat-FormatType="Custom" >
    <DataBindingSerializable>
        <dx:DataSourceColumnBinding ColumnName="[Measures].[Quantity]" />
    </DataBindingSerializable>
</dx:PivotGridField>
