Type Description

A PivotSummaryDataSource object that represents the summary data source.


A summary data source is a table whose columns correspond to the fields, while the records correspond to the pivot grid data cells.

In the example below, the CreateSummaryDataSource method is used to create a summary data source which is then assigned to the Grid Control.

DevExpress.XtraPivotGrid.PivotSummaryDataSource ds = pivotGridControl1.CreateSummaryDataSource();
gridControl1.DataSource = ds;

The image below shows the result:


To identify a column in a summary data source that corresponds to an unbound field, specify its name using the PivotGridFieldBase.UnboundFieldName property. An unbound field is not connected to a datasource field and it should be populated with data manually via the PivotGridControl.CustomUnboundFieldData event.
