Filter Elements

Filter Elements are separate controls within your application that can filter data in a bound PivotGridControl.


For an example, review our Demo Center application : Excel Style Filtering

Requires the installation of a WPF Subscription. Download

For element type information, review the Filter Element Types document section.

Expanded Add a Standalone Filter Element

  1. Add a filter element (the FilterElement (see FilterElement) class descendant) to the markup.
  2. Set the attached FilterElement.Context property to associate the filter element with the PivotGridControl's filter context.
  3. Assign the field name to the FilterElement.FieldName property.

The following code uses the CheckedListFilterElement (see CheckedListFilterElement) to filter the PivotGridControl's data by the fieldProductName values:

The image below shows the result:

Expanded Create a Custom Filter Drop-Down

  1. Create a data template that contains the FilterElement (see FilterElement) class descendant.
  2. Set the element's Name to PART_FilterElement.
  3. Assign the data template to the PivotGridField.CustomExcelStyleFilterPopupTemplate property.

The following code snippet uses the CalendarFilterElement (see CalendarFilterElement) to filter the Order Date field values:

The image below shows the result:


The complete sample project How to Create a Custom Filter Drop-Down is available in the DevExpress Examples repository.
