PivotGridGroup.CanChangeArea(PivotGridFieldBase) Method

Determines whether changing the location of the specified field will change the location of the entire group.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPivotGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.PivotGrid.v20.1.Core.dll

Declaration

public bool CanChangeArea(
    PivotGridFieldBase field
)
Public Function CanChangeArea(
    field As PivotGridFieldBase
) As Boolean

Parameters

Name Type Description
field PivotGridFieldBase

A PivotGridFieldBase descendant which represents the inspected field.

Returns

Type Description
Boolean

true if changing the location of the specified field will change the location of the entire group; otherwise, false.

Remarks

When several fields are combined into one group, their location is determined by the location of the first field within the group. Setting the PivotGridFieldBase.Area property of other fields will have no effect in this case. Use the CanChangeArea method to check whether changing the location of the specified field via code will change the location of the entire group.

If the specified field belongs to another group, the CanChangeArea method does nothing.
