Context Menu in WPF Pivot Grid

23 Oct 2019 / 1 minute to read

The pivot grid supports the context menu option in RowPivotsOnly mode. Following are the available options.

  • Allow Filtering: Enables or disables filtering in the selected pivot computation column.
  • Allow Sorting: Enables or disables sorting in the selected pivot computation column.
  • HideValueColumn: Hides the selected pivot computation column.
  • ClearValueFilters: Clears the filtered changes in all pivot computation columns.
  • ClearValueSorts: Clears the sorted values in all pivot computation columns.
  • ShowPivotValueChooser: Launches the pivot value chooser window to add or remove the items in pivot grid.

The EnableContextMenu property is used to display the context menu by right-clicking each column.

To do so, after defining the pivot grid control in RowPivotsOnly mode, raise the loaded event of pivot grid. Inside the PivotGrid_Loaded() event, set the EnableContextMenu property.

  • c#
  • public partial class MainWindow: Window {
        public MainWindow() {
            pivotGrid.Loaded += pivotGrid_Loaded;
        void pivotGrid_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) {
            pivotGrid.RowHeaderCellStyle.EnableContextMenu = true;
            pivotGrid.ColumnHeaderCellStyle.EnableContextMenu = true;
