Sneak peek: improvements for the VCL pivot grid (coming in v2011.1)

05 April 2011

The VCL team are readying the VCL subscription v2011.1 Release Candidate for this week. Depending on customer feedback of this RC, we shall be releasing the actual v2011.1 soon thereafter.

In this RC, there have been a few improvements to the pivot grid.

1. There is a new compact layout for the grid, aimed at improving the user experience. Here’s the before and after look and feel (click for the full image):


You activate it by setting OptionsView.RowTotalsLocation to rtlTree.

2. We’ve added a new Advanced Customization Form, to allow users, especially advanced users, a way to more easily customize the look of the pivot grid.


3. Not only that but we’ve improved the access to the normal customization form and the advanced form, by allowing them to be embedded in the pivot grid.


You can use the slider to the left of the grid to cover or expose the embedded customization forms.

Looks great!

Any chance of being able to set a column's group interval and group interval range by right-clicking the field?

Can't wait!

@Stephen - there is code available in the kb for implementing the group intervals.  The ranges could be handled similarly I would expect.
