Namespace: DevExpress.XtraPivotGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.PivotGrid.v24.1.Core.dll

NuGet Packages: DevExpress.PivotGrid.Core, DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public bool FilterByUniqueName { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true to take into account unique names when filtering data in the OLAP mode; false to take into account values instead.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Library Object Type Path to FilterByUniqueName
WinForms Controls PivotGridControl
.OptionsOLAP .FilterByUniqueName
ASP.NET Web Forms Controls ASPxPivotGrid
.OptionsOLAP .FilterByUniqueName
ASP.NET MVC Extensions PivotGridSettings
.OptionsOLAP .FilterByUniqueName


By default, PivotGridControl takes into account OLAP member values when filtering data in the OLAP mode. Specific cube dimensions may contain several OLAP members with the same value. As a result, the pivot grid cannot distinguish between such members and treats them as one, which may lead to incorrect filtering. In this instance, set the FilterByUniqueName property to true to enable the PivotGridControl to use unique names instead of values.

The FilterByUniqueName property is in effect for those fields whose PivotGridFieldOptions.OLAPFilterByUniqueName property is set to DefaultBoolean.Default.
