Remarks

Note

This member is no longer supported in Optimized and Server modes. Use ExpressionDataBinding instead.

The Pivot Grid Control calculates summaries against data fields. A field’s PivotGridFieldBase.SummaryType property specifies the type of summary function. The control automatically calculates built-in summaries (see the PivotSummaryType topic for a list of the available functions. You can handle the the CustomSummary event and calculate the custom summaries manually.

To calculate a custom summary for a specific data field, set its PivotGridFieldBase.SummaryType property to PivotSummaryType.Custom. In this case, the CustomSummary event will fire for each cell that corresponds to this data field.

For instance, this event enables a custom summary to be calculated against multiple fields, particular records, etc. Use the PivotGridCustomSummaryEventArgsBase<T>.CreateDrillDownDataSource method to get a list of the records that correspond to the current cell. This list can then be traversed to calculate a summary in a custom manner. The custom summary value should be assigned to the PivotGridCustomSummaryEventArgsBase<T>.CustomValue parameter.

For each cell, the Pivot Grid Control calculates all the predefined summaries (AVERAGE, MIN, MAX, SUM, etc). The calculated values can be accessed using the PivotGridCustomSummaryEventArgsBase<T>.SummaryValue property. You can use them in custom summary calculations.
