If the AllowDrag property is set to DefaultBoolean.Default the ability to drag a field’s header is determined by the control’s PivotGridOptionsCustomization.AllowDrag property.

Set the AllowDrag property to DefaultBoolean.False to prevent an end-user from dragging this field’s header.

If the AllowDrag property is set to DefaultBoolean.True an end-user can drag a field regardless of the PivotGridOptionsCustomization.AllowDrag property’s value.
