  • Summarize Large Datasets in Readable Way

    RadPivotGrid is a control that empowers your applications with similar functionality to the PivotTables in MS Excel. It takes large chunks of data and summarizes it in a human readable way with the help of aggregates and field descriptors.

  • Flexible Pivoting

    The WinForms PivotGrid control allows end-users to easily interact with and break down raw data into any fashion they desire. With a pivot table users can create summarizations and highlight specific data with a few clicks.

  • Full OLAP Support

    RadPivotGrid comes loaded with full-fledged support for OLAP data sources featuring an OLAP browser. With its help, you not only get access to the data in an OLAP cube but also to the structure of the bound data source. The accompanying Hierarchical Field List is fully optimized to load on demand the entire structure of the bound OLAP data source.

  • Tabular And Compact Layouts

    RadPivotGrid supports two types of layouts – Tabular and Compact. The Tabular layout displays each field in a separate box – for row descriptors in a separate column, and for column descriptors in a separate row. The compact layout nests the field descriptors in one common box to optimize space which can be useful in any scenario which uses a large number of fields.

    The standard data manipulation capabilities are complemented by group filtering options that allow your end-users to achieve the exact data view they desire. They are accessible via context menus and dialogs which pretty much resemble those available in MS Excel.

  • Advanced Printing Options

    Exploit native printing support with a bunch of customization settings available for the printing layout. Your end users can send their pivotized reports to the printer, then fine-tune the printing layout using the Print preview or Print settings dialogs. They can set page headers, page footers and watermarks, as well, and adjust paper size settings.

  • Save/Load Layout

    RadPivotGrid supports save and load layout functionality, which enables applications to preserve user RadPivotGrid settings, such as group descriptors, and restore them later. Using this functionality, users can store different layout settings of the control and switch between them, when needed.
  • Calculated Fields and Calculated Items

    The control enables user to add calculated fields or items, which rely on specific business logic, in row or column manually.

    • A calculated field is a new data field in which the values result from a custom calculation formula. You can display the calculated field along with another data field or on its own.
    • A calculated item is a new item in a row or column field in which the values are the result of a custom calculation. In this case, the calculated item’s formula references one or more items in the same field. Using Calculated Items enables you to extend RadPivotGrid with additional items that are not part of the data source.
  • Field List

    RadPivotFieldList provides your users with an easy runtime customization of the RadPivotGrid reports. With it, they can change the way they represent aggregated data in RadPivotGrid by modifying the column/row group descriptions, aggregate descriptions or report filters. This can be achieved by dragging fields across the four list boxes, or by reordering the items in a single list. A deferred layout update option is also available, so users can stack changes and perform them at once. The features of the control are quite similar to the PivotTable Field List panel in Microsoft Excel.

    Last, but not least, the control exposes its inner elements, so users can make additional customizations, according to their needs.

You can also show tool tips based on the currently hovered element in the control.
