    Hello,

    I like the fact that you've implemented cell selection now, but I can't find any way of detecting which cells are selected, which seems fairly fundamental. Am I missing something?

    Thanks,

    Richard

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    With our selection functionality for RadPivotGrid we've provided a CopySelection command that copies the current selection data in the clipboard: http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/wpf/controls/radpivotgrid/features/selection#selection-commands
    You can access this data from the clipboard:
    var selectionData = Clipboard.GetText(TextDataFormat.Text);

    Hope this helps. If not I will kindly ask you to provide more information about your scenario and what you wish to achieve. As we're constantly trying to improve our control any feedback and user scenarios regarding our features is greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    Hi Polya,

    Thanks for getting back to me.The scenario I have is that I have a pivot grid which displays aggregated data from a database table via the QueryableDataProvider. The user can dynamically configure their view of this data in the pivot grid using the field chooser, and then select a cell (or cells) to drill down to see a limited subset of the actual records that generated that aggregated data in a data grid.

    In this scenario, the copy/paste functionality is not much use. I was expecting to see a SelectedCells (or similar) property on the pivot grid, like you have on the RadGridView. This would give me a list of the selected cells, and a way to get the column and row to which they belong from those cells (hopefully an IGroup object so we can get the entire row/column hierarchy).

    We can then use the selected row/column to build the query for the records to display in the datagrid.

    I see that your Roadmap says "Pivot Grid Drill Down Support" for R1 2017. Will this do what I need?

    Thanks,

    Richard

    Hello Richard,

    Thank you for providing this feedback. It is greatly appreciated.

    This functionality is not in the planned design for the drill-down data feature but we will take it into consideration for future improvement of the control.
