Example

The following code sample creates a new SqlDataSource, creates a report with the XRCrossTab control at runtime, and binds the Cross Tab control to data:

    };

    // Creates a detail band and adds it to the report.
    DetailBand detail = new DetailBand();
    crossTabReport.Bands.Add(detail);

    // Creates a cross tab and adds it to the Detail band.
    XRCrossTab crossTab = new XRCrossTab();
    detail.Controls.Add(crossTab);

    // Creates a data source.

    }

    foreach(XRCrossTabCell c in crossTab.Cells) {
        if(c.DataLevel == 1 && c.RowIndex != 2) {
            // Adjusts format string for the "Extended Price" cells.
            c.TextFormatString = "{0:c}";
        }
    }


    // Assigns styles to the cross tab.
    crossTab.CrossTabStyles.GeneralStyle = new XRControlStyle() { 
        Name = "Default",
        Borders = BorderSide.All,
        Padding = new PaddingInfo() { All = 2 }                
    };
    crossTab.CrossTabStyles.DataAreaStyle = crossTab.CrossTabStyles.TotalAreaStyle = new XRControlStyle() {
        Name = "Data",
        TextAlignment = TextAlignment.TopRight
    };
    crossTab.CrossTabStyles.HeaderAreaStyle = new XRControlStyle() {
        Name = "HeaderAndTotals",
        BackColor = Color.WhiteSmoke
    };
    return crossTabReport;
}
