PivotItemFormatRule Class

A format rule used to apply conditional formatting to the Pivot dashboard item.

Namespace: DevExpress.DashboardCommon

Assembly: DevExpress.Dashboard.v21.2.Core.dll

Declaration

public class PivotItemFormatRule :
    CellsItemFormatRule,
    IFormatRuleIntersectionLevel,
    IFormatRuleLevel

Remarks

The Pivot dashboard item allows you to apply conditional formatting to data cells or field value cells. The PivotDashboardItem.FormatRules property provides access to a collection of the PivotItemFormatRule objects that are used to define formatting settings.

To add a new format rule, create the PivotItemFormatRule object and specify the following settings.

Finally, add the created format rule to the GridDashboardItem.FormatRules collection. You can use the DashboardItemFormatRule.Enabled property to specify whether the current format rule is enabled.

Example

The following example demonstrates how to apply conditional formatting to Pivot cells at different detail levels.

            lastLevelRule.IntersectionLevelMode = FormatConditionIntersectionLevelMode.LastLevel;

            PivotItemFormatRule grandTotalRule = new PivotItemFormatRule(pivot.Values[0]);

            grandTotalRule.IntersectionLevelMode = FormatConditionIntersectionLevelMode.SpecificLevel;
            grandTotalRule.Level.Row = pivot.Rows[0];

            PivotItemFormatRule topCategoryRule = new PivotItemFormatRule(pivot.Values[0]);
            FormatConditionTopBottom topCondition = new FormatConditionTopBottom();
            topCondition.TopBottom = DashboardFormatConditionTopBottomType.Top;
            topCondition.RankType = DashboardFormatConditionValueType.Number;
            topCondition.Rank = 3;
            topCondition.StyleSettings = new IconSettings(FormatConditionIconType.RatingFullGrayStar);
            topCategoryRule.Condition = topCondition;
            topCategoryRule.IntersectionLevelMode = FormatConditionIntersectionLevelMode.SpecificLevel;
            topCategoryRule.Level.Row = pivot.Rows[0];
            topCategoryRule.DataItemApplyTo = pivot.Rows[0];

            pivot.FormatRules.AddRange(firstLevelRule, lastLevelRule, grandTotalRule, topCategoryRule);
            dashboardViewer1.Dashboard = dashboard;
        }
    }
