    Hi, is it possible to add any kind of interaction events to the PivotGrid, for example right click menus on cells, or even a simple left click?

    Please add this very usefull function.
    It's often requested to offer drill-down functions, which then would be possible.

    Hello Glen,

    There are several ways to achieve the desired functionality. First one is to handle MouseLeftButtonUp (or MouseLeftButtonDown or any other Mouse event) and get the clicked element in the following way:
    var clickedElement = e.OriginalSource as FrameworkElement;
    if (clickedElement == null)
    var cellData = clickedElement.DataContext as CellData;
    if (cellData != null)
        MessageBox.Show("Clicked element is: " + cellData.Data + " RowItem = " + cellData.RowItem + " ColumnItem " + cellData.ColumnItem);

    You can also add RadContextMenu to RadPivotGrid which will be shown when you right click on the pivot:
    <pivot:RadPivotGrid x:Name="radPivotGrid" MouseLeftButtonUp="radPivotGrid_MouseLeftButtonUp"
                        CellTemplate="{StaticResource CustomCellTemplate}"
                        DataProvider="{StaticResource LocalDataProvider}">
                <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Item 1" />

    And one more option - you can change RadPivotGrid's CellTemplate and put whatever element you need (for example HyperlinkButton).

    I've prepared a sample project demonstrating all of the above. Please give it a try and inform us in case you have any problems or concerns.

    Hi Rosen,

    Thanks for sharing the solution. Can we get property names of the rows and columns  of the clicked cell?

    Hi Asuman,

    In the particular sample you can get the second level parent headers as shown below:

    var col = (cellData.ColumnItem as Telerik.Pivot.Core.IGroup).Parent.Name;
    var row = (cellData.RowItem as Telerik.Pivot.Core.IGroup).Parent.Name;

    Hope this helps.
