Filter Field

Filter fields represent data source fields which are located in a Pivot Grid Control's filter header area. Filter fields allow end-users to apply filtering to the entire PivotGridControl to display data for the predefined values. End-users can specify the filter criteria using the filter dropdown window which is invoked by clicking the filter button.
