PivotGridFieldBase.SetAreaPosition Method

Positions the field in the specified area and at the specified location.

Namespace:DevExpress.XtraPivotGrid
Assembly:DevExpress.PivotGrid.v19.2.Core.dll

Expanded Syntax

Parameters

area
Type: PivotArea
A PivotArea value that specifies the area in which the field is placed.
areaIndex
Type: Int32
A zero-based integer that specifies the field's index amongst the other fields displayed within the same area.

Return value

Type: Boolean
true if the field has been successfully moved to the specified position; otherwise, false.

Expanded Remarks

Each field can be positioned within one of four areas: Filter Header Area, Column Header Area, Row Header Area and Data Header Area.

Use the SetAreaPosition method to position the current field in a specific area at a specific location. This method sets the Area and AreaIndex properties as a result.

If the field hasn't been moved to the specified position the SetAreaPosition method returns false. Otherwise, the method returns true.

There are two reasons the SetAreaPosition method returns false:

  • the field is already displayed at the specified position;
  • moving to the specified area is disabled via the AllowedAreas property.
