A PivotGridField object that specifies the data field, against which the required cell value is calculated.


Type Description

Value displayed in the specified cell; null (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the cell has not been found.


Using the GetCellValue method makes sense when there are two or more data fields. In this instance, columns (rows) contain sub-columns (sub-rows) that correspond to appropriate data fields (see the image below). The GetCellValue method allows you to obtain a cell value calculated for the same column and row field values as the processed cell value, but against another data field. The dataField parameter identifies the sub-column (sub-row) in which the desired cell resides.


To obtain the value of the processed cell, use the PivotCustomDrawCellBaseEventArgs.Value property.


If you call the GetCellValue method while an asynchronous operation is being performed, an exception will be thrown. To determine whether the operation is in progress, use the pivot grid’s IThreadSafeAccessible.IsAsyncInProgress property. For more information, see Asynchronous Mode.
