The ASP.NET MVC Pivot Table is a powerful control used to organize and summarize business data and display the result in a cross-table format. This control includes major functionalities such as data binding, drilling up and down, Excel-like filtering and sorting, editing, Excel and PDF exporting, several built-in aggregations, field lists, and calculated fields. A high volume of data can be loaded without any performance degradation by using row and column virtualization.
Features and Benefits
ASP.NET MVC Pivot Table allows users to load large amounts of raw data into the pivot engine, aggregate it, and view it on-demand through virtual scrolling options with ease.
You can bind JSON data to the control to work smoothly within applications. The JSON data can be obtained from a local file, remote file, or web service.
You can also bind CSV data to the control. The CSV data can be obtained from a local file, remote file, or web service.
OLAP data binding
The ASP.NET MVC Pivot Table can be connected to an OLAP cube, and its result can be visualized in both tabular and graphical formats.
Remote data binding
Binding the ASP.NET MVC Pivot Table with RESTful services allows data from any source, including Excel and CSV files; SQL databases like Microsoft SQL, MySQL, and PostgreSQL; and collections like IEnumerable, IList, and array lists through services, to be consumed using the data manager explicitly. Data Manager supports various data adaptors such as JSON, OData, ODataV4, URLs, and web APIs for working with particular data services.
The ASP.NET MVC Pivot Chart can easily be integrated with pivot data rendered independently, and includes support for plotting more than 20 chart types. The end-user experience is greatly enhanced with a set of user-interaction features such as drill up, drill down, zoom, pan, crosshair, trackball, events, selection, and tooltip. Highly interactive field list options are available for generating reports from the relational data dynamically.
Optimized for mobile devices
All features will work on touch devices with ease. Features such as drilling up, drilling down, filtering, sorting, and report manipulation can be done on the fly.
Responsive support allows the control to be viewed on various devices in MVC Pivot Table.
Adaptable field list UI
The Pivot Table field list can be displayed on various devices in a presentable manner.
Pivot Table field list and group fields
The ASP.NET MVC Pivot Table field list and group fields option are automatically populated with fields from the bound data source. They allow end users to drag, filter, and sort fields, as well as create pivot reports at runtime.
Drill down and drill up
Provides built-in drill-down (expand) and drill-up (collapse) capabilities to visualize data in detailed views and abstract views, respectively. By default, the data is displayed in a grouped manner.
Defer layout update
Users can refresh the control on demand instead of during every UI interaction in the Pivot Table.
Editing and updating
Users can perform create, read, update, and delete operations for raw data at runtime and update their changes to the underlying data source, thereby reflecting the information in all corresponding cells. The control supports various edit modes such as inline, dialog, batch edit, and column edit through an interactive UI.
Built-in member function and Excel-like filters with advanced filtering options can be used to easily filter and view data as required. It is also possible to filter data programmatically in the Pivot Table.
Header filtering displays only selected values for a field. This can be achieved either through the UI or programmatically.
Use Excel-like filtering options across column and row headers based on label text, date, or number.
Use Excel-like filtering options across column and row headers based on grand-total values.
Order column and row header text either in ascending or descending order.
Column sorting, also known as value sorting, orders the column values either in ascending or descending order. It is performed by clicking the header of the column you wish to sort.
Users can perform calculations on a group of values using the aggregation option. By default, values are added together. The other aggregation types are average, minimum, maximum, count, distinct count, product, index, population standard deviation, sample standard deviation, population variance, sample variance, running totals, difference from, percent of difference from, and percent of grand total.
Calculated fields, otherwise known as unbound fields, generate unique fields with your own calculated values by executing a simple user-defined formula.
The drill-through feature easily obtains a list of raw items for a particular value cell or summary cell.
Subtotals and grand totals are calculated automatically by the pivot engine inside the control and displayed in the Pivot Table to help users make decisions more quickly. Also, users can show or hide subtotals and grand totals for rows and columns.
Conditional formatting allows users to define conditions that, when met, format font style, text color, background color, and font size for values and summary cells.
Number formatting and date formatting
Number formatting and date formatting help transform the appearance of the actual cell value.
Group dates and numbers
The ASP.NET MVC Pivot Table control automatically groups dates and numbers, so the date type can be formatted and displayed based on year, quarter, month, day, and more. The number type can be grouped by range, such as 1-5 or 6-10.
You can freeze row and column headers to compare cell values with the corresponding row and column headers.
Columns and rows
Resizing allows changing column width at runtime by simply dragging the rightmost boundary of the column header. A scroll bar will appear when the content width exceeds the control width.
You can reorder columns either on user interaction or programmatically. Simply dragging and dropping a column header into the desired column position will reorder the columns.
Users can retrieve information about a particular cell on clicking a hyperlink cell. It later allows them to perform custom operations programmatically.
Select a range of cells.
A tooltip provides basic information about a cell while hovering over it with the pointer in MVC Pivot Table.
With cell templates, users can add features like images, check boxes, and text nodes to any cell with ease.
The Toolbar feature provides a built-in interface to select frequently used features interactively. These features include new report, save report, save as report, rename report, delete report, report list, show grid, show chart, show or hide totals, export reports, and more.
Export the ASP.NET MVC Pivot Table data to Excel, PDF, and CSV formats. You can also customize the exported document by adding header, footer, and cell properties like type, style, and position programmatically.
Custom styles and themes
Ships with a set of four stunning, built-in themes: Material, Fabric, Bootstrap, and high contrast.
You can customize the appearance of the control as little or as much as you like programmatically.
Globalization and localization
Globalization enables users from different locales to use the control by formatting the date, currency, and numbering to suit locale preferences. This uses an internalization (i18n) library for handling value formatting.
Right to left (RTL)
Supports right-to-left rendering and allows the text direction and layout of the control to be displayed from right to left.
You can localize all the control’s strings in the user interface as needed and use the localization (l10n) library to do so.
For a great developer experience, flexible built-in APIs are available to define and customize the ASP.NET MVC Pivot Table control. Developers can optimize the data bound to the control and customize the user interface completely using code with ease.
Web framework integration
The pivot table control integrates easily with any web framework:
