Show Multiple Aggregates in Separate Cells in Grid Group Header

Environment

Product Progress Kendo UI Grid

Description

I am looking for a way to:

  • Show other column aggregates in the group header row.
  • Control the colspan setting and show the aggregation in the specific columns.

Solution

Access all available aggregates by using the aggregates field in the groupHeaderTemplate.

To display the different aggregates in separate cells that are aligned with the columns:

  1. Generate the group header template with the number of cells and align it with the Grid columns. Leave out the first opening and the last closing <td> tags, because the template is rendered within a single <td></td> in the group header.

        { field: "age", groupHeaderTemplate: "Names: #=aggregates.name.count#</td><td>Age: #= value #</td><td> Completed Tasks: #:aggregates.tasksCompleted.sum # " }
    
  2. Correct the colspan of the first cell in the group header by using the dataBound event of the Grid:

        dataBound: function(e){
            var firstCell = e.sender.element.find(".k-grouping-row td:first-child");
            firstCell.attr("colspan", 2);
        }
    

The following example demonstrates the full implementation of the suggested approach.

    <div id="grid"></div>
    <script>
      $("#grid").kendoGrid({
        columns: [
          { field: "name"},
          { field: "age",
           groupHeaderTemplate: "Names: #=aggregates.name.count#</td>"+
           "<td>Age: #= value #</td><td> Completed Tasks: #:aggregates.tasksCompleted.sum #"
          },
          { field: "tasksCompleted", title: "tasks"}
        ],
        dataSource: {
          data: [
            { name: "Jane Doe", age: 30, tasksCompleted: 3 },
            { name: "John Doe", age: 30, tasksCompleted: 5 },
            { name: "Jane Doe", age: 25, tasksCompleted: 2 },
            { name: "John Doe", age: 20, tasksCompleted: 6 }
          ],
          group: { field: "age", aggregates: [
            { field: "name", aggregate: "count" },
            { field: "tasksCompleted", aggregate: "sum" }
          ]}
        },
        dataBound: function(e){
          var firstCell = e.sender.element.find(".k-grouping-row td:first-child");
          firstCell.attr("colspan", 2);
        }
      });
    </script>
