PivotCustomFieldValueCellsEventArgsBase<T1, T2>.Split(Boolean, Predicate<T2>, Boolean, IList<FieldValueSplitData>) Method

Splits all field value cells that match the specified condition, or only the first matching cell.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPivotGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.PivotGrid.v22.2.Core.dll

NuGet Packages: DevExpress.PivotGrid.Core, DevExpress.Win.Dashboard.Design

Declaration

public void Split(
    bool isColumn,
    Predicate<T2> match,
    bool firstCellOnly,
    IList<FieldValueSplitData> cells
)

Parameters

Name Type Description
isColumn Boolean

true to process column field value cells; false to process row field value cells.

match Predicate<T2>

A System.Predicate that specifies the condition used to define which cells should be split.

firstCellOnly Boolean

true to split only the first cell that matches the specified condition; false to split all cells that match the condition.

cells IList<FieldValueSplitData>

A list of FieldValueSplitData objects that define how to split the cells.

Remarks

The Split method cannot split a field value cell if it has only one nested cell, or has none.

To split a cell (or several cells), create a System.Predicate<FieldValueCell> delegate that defines which cells should be split, and pass it as the match parameter. You also need to create a set of FieldValueSplitData objects. Each of them identifies a single new cell, from the leftmost to the rightmost (for column cells), or from the topmost to the bottommost (for row cells). Specify the size and values of the new cells using the FieldValueSplitData.NestedCellCount and FieldValueSplitData.Value properties, respectively, and pass the created objects as the cells parameter. The FieldValueSplitData.NestedCellCount property defines the size of a newly created cell by specifying the number of cells nested in it.

Example

The following example shows how to split the field value cells. In this example, the Grand Total column header is split into two cells: Price and Count. For this, the Split method of the CustomFieldValueCells event is used.
