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:

Cross Tab Report Created in Code

using DevExpress.DataAccess.ConnectionParameters;
using DevExpress.DataAccess.Sql;
using DevExpress.XtraPrinting;
using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;
using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI.CrossTab;

    XtraReport crossTabReport = new XtraReport() {
        VerticalContentSplitting = VerticalContentSplitting.Smart,
        HorizontalContentSplitting = HorizontalContentSplitting.Smart
    };

    // 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);
    crossTab.PrintOptions.RepeatColumnHeaders = true;
    crossTab.PrintOptions.RepeatRowHeaders = true;

    // Creates a data source.
    SQLiteConnectionParameters connectionParameters = new SQLiteConnectionParameters(@"|DataDirectory|\nwind.db", "");
    SqlDataSource ds = new SqlDataSource(connectionParameters);

    // Creates an SQL query to access the SalesPerson view.
    SelectQuery query = SelectQueryFluentBuilder.AddTable("SalesPerson")
                .SelectColumn("CategoryName")
                .SelectColumn("ProductName")
                .SelectColumn("Country")
                .SelectColumn("FullName")
                .SelectColumn("Quantity")
                .SelectColumn("ExtendedPrice").Build("SalesPerson");
    ds.Queries.Add(query);

    // Binds the cross tab to data.
    crossTab.DataSource = ds;
    crossTab.DataMember = "SalesPerson";

    // Generates cross tab fields.
    crossTab.RowFields.Add(new CrossTabRowField() { FieldName = "CategoryName" });
    crossTab.RowFields.Add(new CrossTabRowField() { FieldName = "ProductName" });
    crossTab.ColumnFields.Add(new CrossTabColumnField() { FieldName = "Country" });
    crossTab.ColumnFields.Add(new CrossTabColumnField() { FieldName = "FullName" });
    crossTab.DataFields.Add(new CrossTabDataField() { FieldName = "Quantity" });
    crossTab.DataFields.Add(new CrossTabDataField() { FieldName = "ExtendedPrice" });
    crossTab.GenerateLayout();
// ...
    // Adjusts the generated cells.
    foreach(var c in crossTab.ColumnDefinitions) {
        // Enables auto-width for all columns.
        c.AutoWidthMode = DevExpress.XtraReports.UI.AutoSizeMode.GrowOnly;
    }

    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;
}
