Change PivotGrid Field Names

It is possible to modify and control the content that is rendered by the field names of the Kendo UI PivotGrid widget.

The following example demonstrates how to change the text displayed by the [Date].[Calendar] and [Product].[Category] fields in a PivotGrid.

<div id="example">
    <div id="configurator"></div>
    <div id="pivotgrid"></div>

        $(document).ready(function () {
            var pivotgrid = $("#pivotgrid").kendoPivotGrid({
                filterable: true,
                columnWidth: 200,
                height: 580,
                dataBound: function() {                          
                  var fields = this.columnFields.add(this.rowFields).add(this.measureFields);

                    .each(function(_, item) {
                        item = $(item);
                        var text ="name").split(".").slice(-1) + "";

                dataSource: {
                    type: "xmla",
                    columns: [{ name: "[Date].[Calendar]", expand: true }, { name: "[Product].[Category]" } ],
                    rows: [{ name: "[Geography].[City]" }],
                    measures: ["[Measures].[Internet Sales Amount]"],
                    transport: {
                        connection: {
                            catalog: "Adventure Works DW 2008R2",
                            cube: "Adventure Works"
                        read: ""
                    schema: {
                        type: "xmla"
                    error: function (e) {
                        alert("error: " + kendo.stringify(e.errors[0]));
            display: inline-block;
            vertical-align: top;
            width: 70%;
