Use this SaveLayoutToStream method overload to save specific settings of a Pivot Grid Control to a stream. The settings can then be restored via the PivotGridControl.RestoreLayoutFromStream method.

The options parameter determines which options should be saved to the stream. For the Pivot Grid Control you can create a OptionsLayoutGrid object, customize it as required and then pass it as the options parameter. Only the options that are enabled in this object will be saved.

To save all the options you can pass null or the static OptionsLayoutBase.FullLayout property as the options parameter.

The SaveLayoutToStream overload without the options parameter saves only the options which are specified by the PivotGridControl.OptionsLayout property.


The expansion states of field values are not saved by the SaveLayoutToStream method.


You can utilize the Persistence Behavior or Workspace Manager component to save and restore layouts for all supported DevExpress controls at once.
