Grouping Bar

28 Jun 20175 minutes to read


Grouping Bar allows user to dynamically alter the report by filter, sort and remove operations in the PivotGrid control. Based on the Relational datasource and report bound to the PivotGrid control, Grouping Bar will be automatically populated. You can enable Grouping Bar option in PivotGrid by setting the e-enableGroupingBar property to true.
