public string DisplayFolder { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

A String that specifies the name of the folder in which the field is located.


Regular data binding mode

Assign a folder name to the DisplayFolder property to place a field into this folder displayed in the Customization Form.


For a Pivot Grid, user-defined folders can be displayed only in Excel-style Customization Form.

You can also create folder hierarchies by nesting folders inside one another. In this instance, use the “" symbol as a delimiter when specifying folder names.

To enable displaying user folders, set the PivotGridOptionsViewBase.GroupFieldsInCustomizationWindow property to true.

OLAP data binding mode

Use the DisplayFolder property to obtain the name of a server-defined display folder or measure group to which the field belongs.

If a field is not retrieved from an OLAP server and obtains its data using the expression assigned to the PivotGridFieldBase.OLAPExpression property, you can use the DisplayFolder property to specify the name of the folder that contains the field. The PivotGridFieldBase.OLAPDimensionCaption property specifies the root name and allows you to group data fields created in the application.
