Hi
I’m working on a project to create pivot table dynamically.

The goal is to build a pivot table based on 2 Collections, which is generated by reading some file. The 1st collection defines the column names and type (e.g. double, string, etc.) of the data. The 2nd one contains a list of strings, which represents all the data, so the type of the data is only known at run time.

I'd like to know is it possible to bind the above data structure to the RadPivotGrid. 

I've tried to set a Collection of dynamic objects to the ItemsSource by using LocalDataSourceProvider, but it seems the data are not shown in the pivot table.

An example of the dynamic object.
dynamic dObject1 = new ExpandoObject();
dObject1.Name = "Name1";
dObject1.Value = 1;

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Gong

Hello Gong,

Thank you for contacting us. Currently it is not possible to use ExpandoObject as a source for RadPivotGrid. You can use ICustomTypeProvider instead. Another option is to convert your ExpandoObject to DataTable at runtime as shown in this thread.

Hopefully this helps. Feel free to contact us in case you have any problems or concerns.

Hi Rosen,

Thanks. I'll go for the DataTable solution. It would be nice to have a DataTable binding example in the document. I didn't know that it is possible.

In this article is mentioned that you can use DataTable as ItemsSource of LocalDataSourceProvider, but we'll consider adding a full example.

Feel free to contact us in case you face any problems with the usage of RadPivotGrid with DataTable.
