Hi,
Telerik 3Q 2013
New to telerik, have experience with other control suites.
I'm taking a dive into the Pivot Grid and running into some issues.
I would like to utilize a Configuration Panel with a pivot grid. I've set the appropriate properties and the configuration panel is not displaying.
I'm setting the data source at runtime via a DataTable.
I've opened the Demo project and noticed the configuration panel is built via the qsf namespace i.e. Telerik.QueckStart project.
Is there a two separate approaches to implementing the configuration panel?
The columns provided by the DataTable, have to be set to a column or a row?  I would like to give the user the ability drag and drop to and row or a column as they slice and dice data.

The main issue im currenlty running into is as I add EnableConfigurationPane=True.  The stack trace points to IScriptDescriptor.  Any ideas?
NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.]
   Telerik.Web.UI.RadPivotGrid.DescribeProperties(IScriptDescriptor descriptor) +7053
   Telerik.Web.UI.RadPivotGrid.DescribeComponent(IScriptDescriptor descriptor) +49
   Telerik.Web.UI.RadCompositeDataBoundControl.Telerik.Web.IControl.DescribeComponent(IScriptDescriptor descriptor) +39
   Telerik.Web.UI.ScriptRegistrar.GetScriptDescriptors(Control control) +182


---- current implementation

<telerik:RadPivotGrid ID="RadPivotGrid1" runat="server" AllowFiltering="true" AllowPaging="true"

ShowFilterHeaderZone="false" ShowDataHeaderZone="false" ShowRowHeaderZone="false"

ShowColumnHeaderZone="false" EnableConfigurationPanel="true" AllowSorting="true">

Hi Rick,

Based on your description it is hard to determine the cause of the problem. You could ensure that you are not using simple data-binding approach (using DataBind) to bind the RadPivotGrid because the ConfigurationPanel does not support it.

Additionally, I have assembled a sample page showing the functionality working on my side. You could observe the differences at your end.
