Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.PivotGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.PivotGrid.v23.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.PivotGrid


public bool OlapSortUsingDiscoverXmlMetadata { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

True, to support the OLAP server’s OrderBy attribute; otherwise, false.


If the SortUsingDiscoverXmlMetadata is set to true, the Pivot Grid sends a special DISCOVER_XML_METADATA request to get an actual attribute value and use this information to sort data.

This is not the default behavior because of backward compatibility. However, you should enable it to support the OLAP server’s OrderBy attribute.
