OLAP Grid - Pivot Table Report

VIBlend DataGrid for WPF features a built-in data aggregation engine which is capable of turning any tabular data source into a wide variety of cross tab views. In a typical data grid, the data is flat and consists of many rows and columns. The data may contain multiple cells with the exact same values. In many of these scenarios working with the raw data may not be the best way to spot patterns and analysize trends. The rows grouping feature allows you to group multiple rows by columns where the corresponding grid cells have the same value. Pivot tables go one step further and enable powerful multidimensional data analysis. A Pivot table usually consits of row, column and data (value/fact) fields.

Embedded Cell Data Editors

Our WPF data grid includes multiple built-in cell editor controls. In addition, you can extend the functionality and use a custom built cell editor control of your choice. You can also configure the mouse and keyboard edit commands, and programmaticly show and hide the editors.

Rows Grouping

VIBlend DataGrid for WPF allows you to group rows by the value of one or more columns. This feature is very useful in many business applications where the data source contains a larger number of rows. For example, you can group Sales records by Product, by Date or any other data column. You have also a full programmatic control over expanding and collapsing groups.

Sorting by Rows or Columns

VIBlend DataGrid for WPF provides built-in sorting capabilities. The sorting works in both bound and unbound mode. You can sort by columns and by rows. Each column and row has a Sorting property that allows you to enable or disable the sorting functionality. In addition, the data grid control keeps track on the original sort order and you can always see the data in the original (unsorted) order. The sorting algorithm automatically detects if you are sorting numbers, dates, text or other data type, and applies a proper comparison. The sorting APIs are extensible and allow you to plug-in a custom sorting implementation.

Filtering

VIBlend DataGrid for WPF features an advanced and extensible filtering framework. The filtering functionality works in both bound and unbound mode and you can filter by any column or row. VIBlend DataGrid provides built-in filters, and filter expression definition UI for the most common numerical, date/time and text data types. Extensible APIs allow you to build custom filters and filtering expressions for any data type.



Cells Formatting

VIBlend WPF DataGrid allows you to use standard .NET format strings to format the grid cells content. In addition, you can completely replace the default cell template with a custom template. You can also create a custom cell style and easily replace the built-in style. Our DataGrid's cells are true WPF content controls, so they can contain anything.
 


Cell Images

You can create great looking interfaces with cell images, editable fields, animations and themes. The data grid cells are completely customizable. You can easily change Styles and DataTemplates for entire rows, columns or individual grid cells.
