    You can select a particular range of value cells from PivotGrid and manipulate/display them. Cell selection is applicable only for value cells and you can enable this functionality by setting EnableCellSelection property to true.

    The “CellSelection” event would be triggered as soon as the selection process is over, that is, when the mouse left click is released. The event argument contains a collection of JSON records and header values, which contains information about the selected cells.

  • @Html.EJ().Pivot().PivotGrid("PivotGrid1").EnableCellSelection(true).ClientSideEvents(events => events.CellSelection("valueCellClick"))
    <script type="text/javascript">
        valueCellClick = function(evt) {
            // The event lets you to perform required operation with the selected set of cells. The details of the selected range can be obtained in the parameter of the event.
            cellvalue = evt.JSONRecords;
            rowheaders = evt.rowHeader;
            colheaders = evt.columnHeader;

    Cell context allows user to perform any custom operation on cell right-click. For example, you can create and display context menu on cell right-click.

    Cell context is enabled by setting the EnableCellContext property to true. The “cellContext” event would be raised as soon as right-click is done providing cell information through event argument.

  • @Html.EJ().Pivot().PivotGrid("PivotGrid1").EnableCellContext(true).ClientSideEvents(events=>events.CellContext("cell_RightClick"))
    <script type="text/javascript">
        cell_RightClick = function(evt) {
            //Write your Cell Context code here

    Conditional formatting allows user to highlight particular cells with certain color, font-style, font-family etc. based on the condition they have met. It is enabled by setting EnableConditionalFormatting property to true and the formatting dialog is launched when “createConditionalDialog” method is invoked.

  • @Html.EJ().Pivot().PivotGrid("PivotGrid1").EnableConditionalFormatting(true)
    @Html.EJ().Button("Button1").Size(ButtonSize.Normal).Text("Conditional").ShowRoundedCorner(true).ClientSideEvents(events => events.Click("btnClick"))
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function btnClick(e) {
            var pivotGridObj = $('#PivotGrid1').data("ejPivotGrid");
