Editing the Value and Total Cells in Pivot Grid

The pivot grid supports editing the value and total cells, and this can be achieved by using the EnableValueEditing property. While handling the editing operations, the values will be calculated automatically and its total values will be adjusted accordingly.

Enable editing for value cells

The EnableValueEditing property of the pivot grid control is used to edit the value cells and it can be mentioned in XAML or code-behind.

For XAML, refer to the following code sample.

  • xaml
  • <Grid>
            <syncfusion:PivotGridControl HorizontalAlignment="Left" Name="pivotGrid" VerticalAlignment="Top" VisualStyle="Metro" EnableValueEditing="True" ItemSource="{Binding   Source={StaticResource data}}">
    
                <syncfusion:PivotGridControl.PivotRows>
                    <syncfusion:PivotItem FieldHeader="Product" FieldMappingName="Product" TotalHeader="Total" />
                    <syncfusion:PivotItem FieldHeader="Date" FieldMappingName="Date" TotalHeader="Total" />
                </syncfusion:PivotGridControl.PivotRows>
                <syncfusion:PivotGridControl.PivotColumns>
                    <syncfusion:PivotItem FieldHeader="Country" FieldMappingName="Country" TotalHeader="Total" />
                    <syncfusion:PivotItem FieldHeader="State" FieldMappingName="State" TotalHeader="Total" />
                </syncfusion:PivotGridControl.PivotColumns>
                <syncfusion:PivotGridControl.PivotCalculations>
                    <syncfusion:PivotComputationInfo CalculationName="Total" FieldName="Amount" Format="C" SummaryType="DoubleTotalSum" />
                    <syncfusion:PivotComputationInfo CalculationName="Total" FieldName="Quantity" SummaryType="Count" />
                </syncfusion:PivotGridControl.PivotCalculations>
    
            </syncfusion:PivotGridControl>
        </Grid>

    For code-behind, refer to the following code sample.

  • c#
  • public partial class MainWindow: Window {
        PivotGridControl pivotGrid = new PivotGridControl();
        public MainWindow() {
            InitializeComponent();
            grid1.Children.Add(pivotGrid);
            pivotGrid.ItemSource = ProductSales.GetSalesData();
            PivotItem m_PivotItem = new PivotItem() {
                FieldHeader = "Product", FieldMappingName = "Product", TotalHeader = "Total"
            };
            PivotItem m_PivotItem1 = new PivotItem() {
                FieldHeader = "Date", FieldMappingName = "Date", TotalHeader = "Total"
            };
            PivotItem n_PivotItem = new PivotItem() {
                FieldHeader = "Country", FieldMappingName = "Country", TotalHeader = "Total"
            };
            PivotItem n_PivotItem1 = new PivotItem() {
                FieldHeader = "State", FieldMappingName = "State", TotalHeader = "Total"
            };
            // Adding PivotItem to PivotRows
            pivotGrid.PivotRows.Add(m_PivotItem);
            pivotGrid.PivotRows.Add(m_PivotItem1);
            // Adding PivotItem to PivotColumns
            pivotGrid.PivotColumns.Add(n_PivotItem);
            pivotGrid.PivotColumns.Add(n_PivotItem1);
            PivotComputationInfo m_PivotComputationInfo = new PivotComputationInfo() {
                CalculationName = "Amount", FieldName = "Amount", Format = "C", SummaryType = Syncfusion.PivotAnalysis.Base.SummaryType.DoubleTotalSum
            };
            PivotComputationInfo m_PivotComputationInfo1 = new PivotComputationInfo() {
                CalculationName = "Quantity", FieldName = "Quantity", SummaryType = Syncfusion.PivotAnalysis.Base.SummaryType.Count
            };
            pivotGrid.PivotCalculations.Add(m_PivotComputationInfo);
            pivotGrid.PivotCalculations.Add(m_PivotComputationInfo1);
    
            pivotGrid.EnableValueEditing = true;
        }
    }

    To edit the value cells in PivotGrid

    Enable editing for total cells

    The AllowEditingOfTotalCells property of PivotEditingManager is used to edit the total cells and it can be mentioned in code-behind.

    To achieve this, define the pivot grid control and raise its loaded event. Inside the PivotGrid_Loaded() event, set the AllowEditingIfTotalCells property of the pivot grid control.

  • c#
  • public partial class MainWindow: Window {
        PivotGridControl pivotGrid = new PivotGridControl();
        public MainWindow() {
            InitializeComponent();
            grid1.Children.Add(pivotGrid);
            pivotGrid.ItemSource = ProductSales.GetSalesData();
            PivotItem m_PivotItem = new PivotItem() {
                FieldHeader = "Product", FieldMappingName = "Product", TotalHeader = "Total"
            };
            PivotItem m_PivotItem1 = new PivotItem() {
                FieldHeader = "Date", FieldMappingName = "Date", TotalHeader = "Total"
            };
            PivotItem n_PivotItem = new PivotItem() {
                FieldHeader = "Country", FieldMappingName = "Country", TotalHeader = "Total"
            };
            PivotItem n_PivotItem1 = new PivotItem() {
                FieldHeader = "State", FieldMappingName = "State", TotalHeader = "Total"
            };
            // Adding PivotItem to PivotRows
            pivotGrid.PivotRows.Add(m_PivotItem);
            pivotGrid.PivotRows.Add(m_PivotItem1);
            // Adding PivotItem to PivotColumns
            pivotGrid.PivotColumns.Add(n_PivotItem);
            pivotGrid.PivotColumns.Add(n_PivotItem1);
            PivotComputationInfo m_PivotComputationInfo = new PivotComputationInfo() {
                CalculationName = "Amount", FieldName = "Amount", Format = "C", SummaryType = Syncfusion.PivotAnalysis.Base.SummaryType.DoubleTotalSum
            };
            PivotComputationInfo m_PivotComputationInfo1 = new PivotComputationInfo() {
                CalculationName = "Quantity", FieldName = "Quantity", SummaryType = Syncfusion.PivotAnalysis.Base.SummaryType.Count
            };
            pivotGrid.PivotCalculations.Add(m_PivotComputationInfo);
            pivotGrid.PivotCalculations.Add(m_PivotComputationInfo1);
    
            pivotGrid.Loaded += pivotGrid_Loaded;
    
        }
        void pivotGrid_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) {
            pivotGrid.EditManager.AllowEditingOfTotalCells = true;
        }
    }

    To edit the total cell values in PivotGrid

    Custom editing manager

    After editing the value, you can further customize the value using the custom editing manager, which is used to format the PivotCellInfo in the pivot grid.

    To do so, create a class named CustomEditManager as illustrated in the following code snippet. Dispose the existing edit manager and set the created custom edit manager to the pivot grid by using the edit manager.

  • c#
  • public class CustomEditManager: PivotEditingManager {
        public CustomEditManager(PivotGridControl pg): base(pg) {}
        protected override void ChangeValue(object oldValue, object newValue, int row1, int col1, PivotCellInfo pi) {
            //do the base change
            base.ChangeValue(oldValue, newValue, row1, col1, pi);
            //mark all the adjusted cell contents
            pi.FormattedText += "*";
        }
    }
    
    public partial class MainWindow: Window {
        PivotGridControl pivotGrid = new PivotGridControl();
        public MainWindow() {
            InitializeComponent();
            grid1.Children.Add(pivotGrid);
            pivotGrid.ItemSource = ProductSales.GetSalesData();
            PivotItem m_PivotItem = new PivotItem() {
                FieldHeader = "Product", FieldMappingName = "Product", TotalHeader = "Total"
            };
            PivotItem m_PivotItem1 = new PivotItem() {
                FieldHeader = "Date", FieldMappingName = "Date", TotalHeader = "Total"
            };
            PivotItem n_PivotItem = new PivotItem() {
                FieldHeader = "Country", FieldMappingName = "Country", TotalHeader = "Total"
            };
            PivotItem n_PivotItem1 = new PivotItem() {
                FieldHeader = "State", FieldMappingName = "State", TotalHeader = "Total"
            };
            // Adding PivotItem to PivotRows
            pivotGrid.PivotRows.Add(m_PivotItem);
            pivotGrid.PivotRows.Add(m_PivotItem1);
            // Adding PivotItem to PivotColumns
            pivotGrid.PivotColumns.Add(n_PivotItem);
            pivotGrid.PivotColumns.Add(n_PivotItem1);
            PivotComputationInfo m_PivotComputationInfo = new PivotComputationInfo() {
                CalculationName = "Amount", FieldName = "Amount", Format = "C", SummaryType = Syncfusion.PivotAnalysis.Base.SummaryType.DoubleTotalSum
            };
            PivotComputationInfo m_PivotComputationInfo1 = new PivotComputationInfo() {
                CalculationName = "Quantity", FieldName = "Quantity", SummaryType = Syncfusion.PivotAnalysis.Base.SummaryType.Count
            };
            pivotGrid.PivotCalculations.Add(m_PivotComputationInfo);
            pivotGrid.PivotCalculations.Add(m_PivotComputationInfo1);
    
            pivotGrid.Loaded += pivotGrid_Loaded;
        }
    
        void pivotGrid_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) {
            pivotGrid.EditManager.Dispose();
            pivotGrid.EditManager = new CustomEditManager(pivotGrid);
        }
    }
