GetColumnIndex

If the field value array identifies several columns, the GetColumnIndex method returns the smallest index. To get the column related to another data field, use the GetColumnIndex(Object[], PivotGridField) method overload that allows you to specify a data field.

The following table demonstrates how to get indices for the columns related to the first data field - the "Quantity" column indices. To get an index of the column related to the "Ext Price" field, use the GetColumnIndex(Object[], PivotGridField) method.

C# Visual Basic Return Value
pivotGridControl.GetColumnIndex(new object[] {2018}) pivotGridControl.GetColumnIndex(New Object() {2018}) 0
pivotGridControl.GetColumnIndex(new object[] {2019, 8, "UK"}); pivotGridControl.GetColumnIndex(New Object() {2019, 8, "UK"}) 2
pivotGridControl.GetColumnIndex(new object[] {2019, 8, "USA"}); pivotGridControl.GetColumnIndex(New Object() {2019, 8, "USA"}) 4
pivotGridControl.GetColumnIndex(new object[] {2019, 8}); pivotGridControl.GetColumnIndex(New Object() {2019, 8}) 6
pivotGridControl.GetColumnIndex(new object[] {}); pivotGridControl.GetColumnIndex(New Object() {}) 8

Note that the the method requires the field values, which may be different from the displayed text. In the picture above, the DateTime field grouped by Month displays "August" and has the value 8. The grand total columns has null values.

TIP

To display field values instead of automatically created and formatted strings, handle the FieldValueDisplayText event.
