End-users can change the location of fields by dragging their headers. Fields can be moved from one area to another. The XtraPivotGrid control allows end-users to hide fields by dropping their headers outside the header areas (data, filter, column and row areas).

The AllowHideFields property controls when an end-user can hide fields. If the field can be hidden an X cursor is displayed - AllowHideField_allow. Otherwise, the cursor which indicates that the field cannot be dropped is displayed - AllowHideField_prohibit.
