Property Value

Type Default Description

True, if the field is available in the Filter Editor; otherwise, false.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Library Object Type Path to ShowInFilter
Cross-Platform Class Library PivotGridFieldBase
WinForms Controls PivotGridField
Reporting XRPivotGridField
ASP.NET MVC Extensions MVCxPivotGridField
ASP.NET Web Forms Controls PivotGridField


If the ShowInFilter property is set to false, the field is not displayed in the drop-down field list invoked in the Filter Editor, as the Category Name field in the picture below…


… and the Filter editor does not recognize the field’s name:


It may prevent end-users from using the current field when constructing filter criteria. However, if the Filter Editor edits the criteria already containing that field, the field is available despite the ShowInFilter property setting.


You can also prevent end-users from displaying the filter drop-down list by setting the PivotGridFieldOptions.AllowFilter field’s property to false.
