Returns a list of field values that are not excluded by filters applied to other fields and can be displayed.
A list of field values that are not excluded by filters applied to other fields and can be displayed.
Assume that a pivot grid contains two dimension fields: Category Name and Product Name.
If there is no filtering applied to the Category Name field, the GetAvailableValues method called for the Product Name field will return all unique field values, since all of them can be displayed.
If the Category Name field has a filter that allows displaying only the Beverages category, the GetAvailableValues method called for the Product Name field will return only products related to the Beverages category since all other products are excluded by the category filtering.
PivotGridControl also allows you to remove field values that cannot be displayed from filter drop-down lists. To do this, use the PivotGridControl.ShowOnlyAvailableFilterItems property.
If the PivotGridControl filters data by OLAP member unique names (controlled by the PivotGridField.OlapFilterByUniqueName and PivotGridControl.OlapFilterByUniqueName options), the GetAvailableValues method returns them instead of field values.
