fields[]

Configures pivot grid fields.

Type:

Array<Object>

Default Value: undefined

This option accepts an array of objects where each object configures a single field. Each pivot grid field must be associated with a data field using the dataField option. Fields with the specified area option are displayed in the pivot grid; other fields' headers are displayed in the field chooser.

allowCrossGroupCalculation

Specifies whether to take neighboring groups' summary values into account when calculating a running total and absolute or percent variation.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

For example, a pivot grid row contains the following summary values split into three groups:

[ [1, 1, 1], [2, 2, 2], [3, 3, 3] ]

This row can be displayed differently depending on the allowCrossGroupCalculation option's value, provided that the running total is calculated by rows:

[ [1, 2, 3], [2, 4, 6], [3, 6, 9] ]    // allowCrossGroupCalculation: false
[ [1, 2, 3], [5, 7, 9], [12, 15, 18] ] // allowCrossGroupCalculation: true

View Demo

allowExpandAll

Specifies whether a user can expand/collapse all items within the same column or row header level using the context menu.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

allowFiltering

Specifies whether a user can filter the field's values.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

When this option is set to true, the field's header in the field chooser and on the field panel is supplied with a filter icon. Clicking it invokes the header filter displaying all unique field values. A user applies filtering by selecting or clearing the selection of the values.

View Demo

See Also

allowSorting

Specifies whether a user can change the field's sorting.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

When this option is set to true, clicking the field's header in the field chooser and on the field panel changes the sorting direction. An arrow icon in the header indicates the current sorting direction.

See Also

allowSortingBySummary

Specifies whether a user can sort the pivot grid by summary values instead of field values.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

When this option is set to true, a user can use a column header's or row header's context menu to sort the pivot grid by this column's or row's summary values.

See Also

area

Specifies the field's area.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined
Accepted Values: undefined | 'column' | 'data' | 'filter' | 'row'

The field does not belong to any area if this option is undefined. However, the field's header is displayed in the field chooser, which enables the user to move this field to any area. In other cases, the field is displayed in the specified area.

Use the PivotGridArea enum to specify this option when the widget is used as an ASP.NET MVC Control. This enum accepts the following values: Row, Column, Data, and Filter.

See Also

areaIndex

Specifies the field's order among the other fields in the same area. Corresponds to the field's order in the fields array by default.

Type:

Number

Default Value: undefined

calculateCustomSummary

Specifies a custom aggregate function. Applies only if the summaryType is "custom" and the remoteOperations is false. Cannot be used with an XmlaStore.

Type:

Function

Function parameters:
options:

Object

Information on the summary.

Object structure:
summaryProcess:

String

isMeasure

Specifies whether the field should be treated as a measure (a field providing data for calculation).

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: undefined

There are no restrictions for rearranging fields in the areas using the field chooser. However, we recommend restricting measures to the data area by setting their isMeasure option to true. You can also set this option to false for a non-measure field to prohibit placing it in the data area.

name

Specifies the field's identifier.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined

Set this option to refer to the field in code, for example, when changing field options.

precision

Deprecated

Use the format.precision option instead.

Specifies a precision for formatted field values.

Type:

Number

Default Value: undefined

runningTotal

Specifies whether to calculate the running total by rows or by columns.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined
Accepted Values: 'column' | 'row'

For example, a pivot grid row contains the following summary values:

[ 3, 3, 3, 3, 3 ]

If the runningTotal option is set to "row", each value in this row is added to the previous value:

[ 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 ]

This also applies to columns if the runningTotal option is set to "column".

Use the PivotGridRunningTotalMode enum to specify this option when the widget is used as an ASP.NET MVC Control. This enum accepts the following values: Row and Column.

selector

Specifies a function that combines the field's values into groups for the headers. Cannot be used with an XmlaStore or remote operations.

Type:

Function

Default Value: undefined

This function is an alternative to the groupInterval option and should return a group name that corresponds to a data object. The function's parameter represents this data object. For example, the selector function in the following code groups birth dates by decades:

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    var pivotGridDataSource = new DevExpress.data.PivotGridDataSource({
        // ...
        fields: [{

showGrandTotals

Specifies whether to display the field's grand totals. Applies only if the field is in the data area.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: true
See Also

showTotals

Specifies whether to display the field's totals.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: true
NOTE
Setting this option to false hides the field's totals and summary values - only the grand totals are displayed. Set the showValues option to true to display summary values.
See Also

showValues

Specifies whether to display the field's summary values. Applies only if the field is in the data area. Inherits the showTotals' value by default.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: undefined

sortBy

Specifies how the field's values in the headers should be sorted.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined
Accepted Values: 'displayText' | 'value' | 'none'

Dimension attributes have a value and a display text. For example, a "Month" attribute's display text can be "January", "February", ..., "December"; its values can be 1, 2, ..., 12. "January" is first when sorting by values, and "April" is first when sorting by display text. No sorting is applied when setting the sortBy option to "none".

Use the PivotGridSortBy enum to specify this option when the widget is used as an ASP.NET MVC Control. This enum accepts the following values: DisplayText, Value, and None.

sortBySummaryField

Sorts the field's values in the headers by the specified measure's summary values. Accepts the measure's name, caption, dataField, or index in the fields array.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined

This and the sortBySummaryPath options can be used together to sort the field's values by a specific column's or row's summary values. If sortBySummaryPath is unspecified, the field's values are sorted by the specified measure's grand totals, as it is with the Region field's values in the following code:

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    var pivotGridDataSource = new DevExpress.data.PivotGridDataSource({
        // ...
        fields: [{
            caption: "Sales",

sortBySummaryPath

Specifies a path to the column or row whose summary values should be used to sort the field's values in the headers.

Type:

Array<Number | String>

Default Value: undefined

This and the sortBySummaryField options are applied together. If this option is not specified, the field's values are sorted by the grand totals of the measure that sortBySummaryField specifies.

In the following example, geographic regions displayed in the row header are sorted by sales in the second quarter of 2015:

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function() {
    var pivotGridDataSource = new DevExpress.data.PivotGridDataSource({
        // ...
        fields: [{

a:

Object

A field value to be compared.

Object structure:
value:

String

|

Number

The field value.

children:

Array<any>

  • Less than zero
    a goes before b.
  • Zero
    a and b remain unchanged relative to each other.
  • Greater than zero
    a goes after b.

Inside this function, you can access the field's configuration using the this keyword:

summaryDisplayMode

Specifies a predefined post-processing function. Does not apply when the calculateSummaryValue option is set.

Type:

String

Default Value: undefined
Accepted Values: 'absoluteVariation' | 'percentOfColumnGrandTotal' | 'percentOfColumnTotal' | 'percentOfGrandTotal' | 'percentOfRowGrandTotal' | 'percentOfRowTotal' | 'percentVariation'

Post-processing functions allow you to perform additional calculations on each summary value and take into account neighboring cells' summary values.

The following list describes the available post-processing functions. These functions apply to one summary value at a time. This value is referred to as the "current value" in the descriptions.

  • "absoluteVariation"
    Calculates the absolute difference between the current and previous value in a row. Starts from the second value in the row because the first does not have a previous value.

  • "percentVariation"
    Same as the absolute variation, but the difference is calculated as a percentage.

  • "percentOfColumnTotal"
    Calculates the current value as a percentage in one of the column's intermediate totals or the column's grand total when there are no expanded rows.

  • "percentOfRowTotal"
    Calculates the current value as a percentage in one of the row's intermediate totals or the row's grand total when there are no expanded columns.

  • "percentOfColumnGrandTotal"
    Calculates the current value as a percentage in the column's grand total.

  • "percentOfRowGrandTotal"
    Calculates the current value as a percentage in the row's grand total.

  • "percentOfGrandTotal"
    Calculates the current value as a percentage in the grand total of the entire pivot grid.

You can implement the capability to select the post-processing function at runtime using instructions from the Runtime Summary Type Selection article.

To specify a custom post-processing function, use the calculateSummaryValue option.

Use the PivotGridSummaryDisplayMode enum to specify this option when the widget is used as an ASP.NET MVC Control. This enum accepts the following values: AbsoluteVariation, PercentVariation, PercentOfColumnTotal, PercentOfRowTotal, PercentOfColumnGrandTotal, PercentOfRowGrandTotal, and PercentOfGrandTotal.

summaryType

Specifies how to aggregate the field's data. Cannot be used with an XmlaStore.

Type:

String

Default Value: 'count'
Accepted Values: 'avg' | 'count' | 'custom' | 'max' | 'min' | 'sum'

The summary type defines how to calculate the summary values that are displayed in the pivot grid's cells. The calculation is performed on a subset of facts that correspond to each field value in three areas (column, row, and filter).

The following summary types are supported:

Use the SummaryType enum to specify this option when the widget is used as an ASP.NET MVC Control. This enum accepts the following values: Sum, Min, Max, Avg, Count, and Custom. To apply a custom server-side aggregate function, use a string overload instead.

You can implement the capability to select the summary type at runtime using instructions from the Runtime Summary Type Selection article.
