Hi Telerik Team,

Currently I setup my mvc pivot grid as follow:

 

@(Html.Kendo().PivotConfigurator()
                        .Name("configurator")
                        .HtmlAttributes(new { @class = "hidden-on-narrow" })
                        .Filterable(true)
                        .Sortable()
                        .Height(580)
            )

@(Html.Kendo().PivotGrid<EmployeeTurnOverDto>
    ()
    .Name("pivotgrid")
    .HtmlAttributes(new { @class = "hidden-on-narrow" })
    .Filterable(true)
    .Sortable()
    .Configurator("#configurator")
    .ColumnWidth(120)
    .Height(580)
    .BindTo(Model)
    .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
    .Ajax()
    .Schema(schema => schema
    .Cube(cube => cube
    .Dimensions(dimensions =>
    {
    dimensions.Add(model => model.FullName).Caption(L("Staffs"));
    dimensions.Add(model => model.Institution).Caption(L("Institution"));
    dimensions.Add(model => model.Department).Caption(L("Department"));
    dimensions.Add(model => model.TurnOverDate).Caption(L("TurnOverDate"));
    })
    .Measures(measures =>
    {
    measures.Add("In").Field(model => model.JoinFlag).AggregateName("sum").Caption(L("In"));
    measures.Add("Out").Field(model => model.ResignFlag).AggregateName("sum").Caption(L("Out"));
    })
    )
    )
    .Columns(columns =>
    {
    columns.Add("TurnOverDate").Expand(true);
    })
    .Rows(rows => rows.Add("Denomination").Expand(true))
    .Measures(measures => measures.Values("In"))
    .Events(e => e.Error("onError"))
    )
    )

 

Could you advise how to add the Year and/or Month (in MMM format) component of the TurnOverDate in the Column fields?

 

Note that I am not using cube, but using a flat data.

 

Thank you.

 

Regards,

Hage

Hello, Hage,

Thank you for the provided Kendo UI PivotGrid for ASP.NET MVC configuration. 

To change the way the data is displayed in the pivot grid, you can use a column header template for the column headers or a data cell template for the content of the columns. We have a demo which shows sample usage of these templates at:

https://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/pivotgrid/templates

For example, to format the headers as dates in a similar scenario as yours, this how the template could look:

* note that a new Date() is created on the client from the member caption which is a string

@(Html.Kendo().PivotGrid<Pivot.Models.OrderViewModel>()
  // configuration
  .ColumnHeaderTemplateId("headerTemplate")
)
<script id="headerTemplate" type="text/x-kendo-tmpl">
    # if (!member.children.length) { #
    <em>#: kendo.toString(new Date(member.caption), "MMM") #</em>
    # } else { #
    #: member.caption #
    # } #
</script>

Here is more information on date formatting, should you need to reference it:

https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/framework/globalization/dateformatting

Let me know if you face any difficulties.

Kind Regards,
