Previewing v2009 vol 1: pivot grid for ASP.NET

03 March 2009

These are the new features for ASPxPivotGrid, out pivot table for web development.

Advanced Filter Editor

We've extended the ability to build complex filter expressions in our pivot grid, the same functionality that's present in most of our data analysis controls. Now your end-users can take advantage of the pivot grid’s embedded filter editor – Prefilter – and construct complex filter criteria with an unlimited number of filter conditions combined by any logical operators.

We've also added the ability to replace the default text that represents the filter expression currently applied with a custom description. All you need is to handle the specially designed server-side event.

Improved Row Header Alignment

Field headers displayed within the Row Header Area are now aligned to the corresponding field values. (The top image below is how it looked in previous versions, the bottom image shows the new improved look.)

Alain: Newbie mistake, which I didn't spot since I was connected to the internal VPN when I looked at the resulting posts. Fixed now.

Cheers, Julian

Really cool, but in my opinion it would be really important to add the ability to scroll within the filter-criteria builder. I've got datasets with 200 and more columns which all can be used to filter data, so I can't use the filterbuilder (even not the external - the list exceeds the window and you can only scroll by using the scroll wheel of your mouse - if you use the scrollbar of your browser, the list collapses). Why can't the column list be rendered as ASPxDropDownList instead of rendering as ASPxMenu? That would be the best solution. You can use the DDL to predefine the values for the filter, but not for choosing the column :(

Claus: I would add a suggestion if I were you. The team that is responsible for the pivot tables is looking for just those kinds of requests.

Cheers, Julian

Hello Julian,

there's already a suggestion in the support center.

Hoping to see it soon :-)
