Pivot table field list

Initialization

The field list, also known as pivot schema designer, allows you to add, rearrange, filter, and remove fields to show data in the pivot grid exactly the way you desire.

Based on the data source and relational binding to the pivot grid control, the pivot table field list will be automatically populated with cube information or field names. This list provides an Excel like appearance and behavior.

You should initialize the pivot table field list by using the “PivotSchemaDesigner” tag.

    </div>

    Layout

    The top portion of the layout shows field or cube items in a categorized way. They can be dynamically added to the report by drag and drop option or through simple check box selection.

    Item(s) selected will be placed in the row section by default, except numeric based item(s) or measures, which will be placed in the value section, by default.

    The bottom portion of the layout is segregated as follows:

    • Report filter: Filters item(s) placed in a particular position of the layout.
    • Value section: The value label usually displays the numeric value item(s) present in the report.
    • Column section: Displays item(s) as column header and values in the pivot grid control.
    • Row section: Displays item(s) as row header and values in the pivot grid control.
