How to: Group Fields

  • 2 minutes to read

The following example demonstrates how to combine fields into a group.

In this example, two fields ("Country" and "Customer") are combined into a new group at design time, and another two fields ("Category" and "Product") are combined into a new group at runtime, in this order. This ensures that the "Country" field is followed by "Customer", and the the "Category" field is followed by "Product". If you drag the "Region" field and drop it to another area, the "Customer" field accompanies it. This behavior is also true for the second group.

A complete sample project How to: Group Fields is available at GitHub.

using System.Windows;
using DevExpress.Xpf.PivotGrid;
using HowToBindToMDB.DataSet1TableAdapters;
using static HowToBindToMDB.DataSet1;

namespace HowToBindToMDB {
    public partial class MainWindow : Window {
        SalesPersonDataTable salesPersonDataTable = 
            new SalesPersonDataTable();
        SalesPersonTableAdapter salesPersonDataAdapter = new SalesPersonTableAdapter();
        public MainWindow() {
            InitializeComponent();
            pivotGridControl1.DataSource = salesPersonDataTable;
        }
        private void Window_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) {
            salesPersonDataAdapter.Fill(salesPersonDataTable);

            // Create a group at run-time
            PivotGridGroup group = pivotGridControl1.Groups.Add(fieldCategoryName, fieldProductName);
        }
    }
}
