When implemented, provides a read-only access to basic settings of a field.
Properties that return IThreadSafeField instances:
Objects that implement the IThreadSafeField interface are used in event handlers that can be executed in a background thread, instead of PivotGridField instances. This is necessary because the PivotGridField class exposes dependency properties that cannot be accessed from a background thread safely. The IThreadSafeField implementing objects provides a read-only access to these properties, which is performed while avoiding the dependency properties mechanism.
Events can be handled in a background thread when PivotGridControl is in the asynchronous mode, or when an asynchronous operation is called in code. To learn more, see Asynchronous Mode.
