PivotConfigurator Overview

The Telerik UI PivotConfigurator component for ASP.NET Core represents an OLAP cube structure.

The PivotConfigurator can be used for configuring the column and row dimensions, and the measure fields of the PivotGrid. It is a supplementary component which is strongly related to the Telerik UI PivotDataSource.

Initializing the PivotConfigurator

The following example demonstrates how to create the PivotConfigurator.

    @(Html.Kendo().PivotConfigurator()
        .Name("configurator")
        .Filterable(true)
        .Height(570)
    )

    @(Html.Kendo().PivotGrid()
    .Name("pivotgrid")
    .Height(570)
    .Filterable(true)
    .Configurator("#configurator")
    // Other configuration.
    )
    <kendo-pivotconfigurator name="configurator" 
                             datasource-id="pivotSource" 
                             filterable="true"  
                             height="570">
    </kendo-pivotconfigurator>

    <kendo-pivotgrid name="pivotgrid" 
                     filterable="true" 
                     datasource-id="pivotSource"
                     height="570">
    </kendo-pivotgrid>

Basic Configuration

The following example demonstrates how to configure the PivotConfigurator.

    @(Html.Kendo().PivotConfigurator()
        .Name("configurator")
        .Filterable(true)
        .Sortable()
        .Height(570)
    )

    @(Html.Kendo().PivotGrid()
        .Name("pivotgrid")
        .ColumnWidth(200)
        .Height(570)
        .Filterable(true)
        .Sortable()
        .Configurator("#configurator")
        .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource.
            Xmla()
            .Columns(columns => {
                columns.Add("[Date].[Calendar]").Expand(true);
                columns.Add("[Product].[Category]");
            })
            .Rows(rows => rows.Add("[Geography].[City]"))
            .Measures(measures => measures.Values(new string[]{"[Measures].[Reseller Freight Cost]"}))
            .Transport(transport => transport
                .Connection(connection => connection
                    .Catalog("Adventure Works DW 2008R2")
                    .Cube("Adventure Works"))
                .Read(read => read
                    .Url("https://demos.telerik.com/olap/msmdpump.dll")
                    .DataType("text")
                    .ContentType("text/xml")
                    .Type(HttpVerbs.Post)
                )
            )
            .Events(e => e.Error("onError"))
        )
    )
    <kendo-pivotdatasource type=@(PivotDataSourceType.Xmla) name="pivotSource">
        <columns>
            <pivot-datasource-column name="[Date].[Calendar]" expand="true"></pivot-datasource-column>
            <pivot-datasource-column name="[Product].[Category]"></pivot-datasource-column>
        </columns>
        <rows>
            <row name="[Geography].[City]"></row>
        </rows>
        <schema type="xmla"/>
        <measures values=@(new string[] {"[Measures].[Reseller Freight Cost]"} ) ></measures>
        <transport>
            <read url="https://demos.telerik.com/olap/msmdpump.dll" datatype="text" content-type="text/xml" type="POST" />
            <connection catalog="Adventure Works DW 2008R2" cube="Adventure Works"></connection>
        </transport>
    </kendo-pivotdatasource>

    <kendo-pivotconfigurator name="configurator" 
                             filterable="true" 
                             height="570" 
                             datasource-id="pivotSource">
    </kendo-pivotconfigurator>

    <kendo-pivotgrid name="pivotgrid"
                     filterable="true" 
                     column-width="200" 
                     height="570"
                     datasource-id="pivotSource">
        <sortable enabled="true" />
    </kendo-pivotgrid>

The following image demonstrates the output from the previous example.

Referencing Existing Instances

To reference an existing PivotConfigurator instance, use the jQuery.data() method. Once a reference has been established, use the PivotConfigurator client-side API to control its behavior.

var pivotconfigurator = $("#pivotconfigurator").data("kendoPivotConfigurator");
