The PivotGrid is part of Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core, a professional grade UI library with 110+ components for building modern and feature-rich applications. To try it out sign up for a free 30-day trial.

The Telerik UI PivotGrid TagHelper and HtmlHelper for ASP.NET Core are server-side wrappers for the Kendo UI PivotGrid widget. To add the component to your ASP.NET Core application, you can use either.

The PivotGrid represents multidimensional data in a cross-tabular format.

Basic Configuration

To configure the PivotGrid for Ajax binding to an Adventure Works cube that is hosted on, follow the next steps:

  1. Create a new ASP.NET Core application. If you have the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Visual Studio Extensions installed, create a Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core application. Name the application KendoPivotGrid. If you decide not to use the Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core Visual Studio Extensions, follow the steps from the introductory article to add Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core to the application.

  2. Add a PivotGrid to the Index View.

            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource.
                .Columns(columns => {
                .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
        @addTagHelper *, Kendo.Mvc
        <kendo-pivotdatasource type=@(PivotDataSourceType.Xmla) name="pivotSource">
                <pivot-datasource-column name="[Date].[Calendar]" expand="true"></pivot-datasource-column>
                <pivot-datasource-column name="[Product].[Category]"></pivot-datasource-column>
                <row name="[Geography].[City]"></row>
            <schema type="xmla"/>
            <measures values=@(new string[] {"[Measures].[Reseller Freight Cost]"} ) ></measures>
                <read url="" datatype="text" content-type="text/xml" type="POST" />
                <connection catalog="Adventure Works DW 2008R2" cube="Adventure Works"></connection>
        <kendo-pivotconfigurator name="configurator"
