Summary Types

The pivot grid summarizes the data for various data types by using the SummaryType enumerator. SummaryType should be defined while defining the pivot calculation using PivotComputationInfo class to specify the type of summary. It holds the following summary types.

  • DoubleTotalSum: Computes the sum of double or integer in pivot values for corresponding pivot item.
  • DoubleAverage: Computes average of double or integer in pivot values for corresponding pivot item.
  • DoubleMaximum: Computes maximum of double or integer in pivot values for corresponding pivot item.
  • DoubleMinimum: Computes minimum of double or integer in pivot values for corresponding pivot item.
  • DoubleStandardDeviation: Computes the standard deviation of double or integer in pivot values for corresponding pivot item.
  • DoubleVariance: Computes the variance of double or integer in pivot values for corresponding pivot item.
  • Count: Computes count of double or integer from pivot values for corresponding pivot item.
  • DecimalTotalSum: Computes the sum of decimal in pivot values for corresponding pivot item.
  • IntTotalSum: Computes the sum of integer in pivot values for corresponding pivot item.
  • Custom: Specifies that you are using a custom summary base object to define the calculation.
  • DisplayIfDiscreteValuesEqual: Displays the aggregated value in the pivot computation column if all the values are common.

SummaryType property can be set for the corresponding pivot calculation item through PivotComputationInfo class. It can be set through XAML or code-behind.

For XAML, refer to the following code sample.

  • xaml
  • <Grid>
            <syncfusion:PivotGridControl HorizontalAlignment="Left" Name="pivotGrid" VerticalAlignment="Top" 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" SummaryType="DoubleTotalSum" />
                    <syncfusion:PivotComputationInfo CalculationName="Total" FieldName="Quantity" SummaryType="Count" />
                </syncfusion:PivotGridControl.PivotCalculations>
        </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", SummaryType = SummaryType.DoubleTotalSum
            };
            PivotComputationInfo m_PivotComputationInfo1 = new PivotComputationInfo() {
                CalculationName = "Quantity", FieldName = "Quantity", SummaryType = SummaryType.Count
            };
            pivotGrid.PivotCalculations.Add(m_PivotComputationInfo);
            pivotGrid.PivotCalculations.Add(m_PivotComputationInfo1);
        }
    }

    !PivotGrid shows the values as double total sum and count format

    DisplayIfDiscreteValuesEqual summary type in pivot grid

    DisplayIfDiscreteValuesEqual is a new summary type added to the SummaryType enumerator of the pivot grid control. This summary type displays the aggregated value in the pivot calculation column if all the values are common, else the default value will be displayed as ‘*‘.
    You can change the default value to any custom string of your choice by using the PadString property.

    Set the SummaryType as DisplayIfDiscreteValuesEqual along with value for the PadString while defining pivot calculations in the pivot grid control.

    For setting these properties through XAML, refer to the following code sample.

  • xaml
  • <Grid>
            <syncfusion:PivotGridControl HorizontalAlignment="Left" Name="pivotGrid" VerticalAlignment="Top" VisualStyle="Metro" ItemSource="{Binding   Source={StaticResource data}}">

                    <syncfusion:PivotItem FieldHeader="Product" FieldMappingName="Product" TotalHeader="Total" />
                    <syncfusion:PivotItem FieldHeader="Date" FieldMappingName="Date" TotalHeader="Total" />
                </syncfusion:PivotGridControl.PivotRows>
                <syncfusion:PivotGridControl.PivotColumns>
