Property Value

Type Default Description


A String value that specifies the format pattern.


Use the DisplayFormat property to format the summary display text.

The summary pattern can include static text plus predefined indexed placeholders.

  • The {0} format item is the placeholder for the calculated summary value.
<dx:ASPxSummaryItem FieldName="amount" ShowInGroupFooterColumn ="amount" SummaryType="Sum"  DisplayFormat="My Caption: {0}"/>
  • The {1} format item is the placeholder for the caption of the column (row for ASPxVerticalGrid) whose values the current summary aggregates.

In the following example, if the "Price" column's summary value is 100, its formatted equivalent will be 'Total of Price: $100.00'.

<dx:ASPxSummaryItem FieldName="amount" ShowInGroupFooterColumn ="amount" SummaryType="Sum"  DisplayFormat="Total of {1}: {0:c2}"/>
