A filter drop-down window invoked for a particular field contains all the unique field values, although some of these values may actually be excluded from the pivot grid by filtering applied to other fields.

Assume that a pivot grid contains two dimension fields: Category Name and Product Name.


If you choose only one product category from the Category Name filter drop-down, all products related to other categories will be excluded from the pivot grid. This means that whether you check or uncheck any of these products in the Product Name filter drop-down, this will have no effect, since they are hidden by the category filtering.

PivotGridControl allows you to remove such field values from filter drop-downs. To do this, set the ShowOnlyAvailableItems property to true.

The image below illustrates the property effect:


End-users can enable or disable the ShowOnlyAvailableItems option via the Toolbar_ShowOnlyAvailableItems toolbar button.

You can also obtain a list of available field values in code, using the PivotGridFieldBase.GetAvailableValues method.
