NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.PivotGrid


public string DataMember { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

A string value representing the data source member.


This property is used when the PivotGridControl.DataSource property refers to a data source which contains several data tables or lists. The DataMember property should specify the name of the target table/list in this case.

Assigning a new value to the PivotGridControl.DataSource or DataMember property raises the PivotGridControl.DataSourceChanged event, and causes a Pivot Grid Control update. The Pivot Grid Control is not updated automatically when the current data source is modified. To force the Pivot Grid Control update, use the PivotGridControl.RefreshData method.


The PivotGridControl.DataSourceChanged event is raised and the Pivot Grid Control is updated when the data source implementing the IBindingList interface raises the ListChanged event of the PropertyDescriptorAdded, PropertyDescriptorDeleted, PropertyDescriptorChanged or Reset type.
