How to: Create the Underlying Data Source (Drill-Down) in an Asynchronous Operation

This example performs an asynchronous operation that creates a drill-down data source for the selected PivotGrid cell and gets the operation result - the underlying data source.

In this example, the PivotGrid control is bound to the LinqServerModeSource (see LinqServerModeSource) data source and operates in server mode.

The PivotGridControl.CellClick event handler calls the PivotGridControl.CreateDrillDownDataSourceAsync method to generate a drill-down data source for the selected cell. The method parameter specifies the number of records to return. The method also specifies the columns to add to the the data set.

The last item in the method's parameter list is the AsyncCompletedHandler (see AsyncCompletedHandler) delegate. The delegate is executed when the operation is complete. The delegate's result parameter is the AsyncOperationResult (see AsyncOperationResult) instance whose Value (see AsyncOperationResult.Value) property contains the result of the operation.

The operation's result is cast to the PivotDrillDownDataSource (see PivotDrillDownDataSource) and the GridControl (see GridControl) displays the underlying records in the auxiliary DrillDown form.


The complete sample project How to Create the Underlying Data Source (Drill-Down) in an Asynchronous Operation is available in the DevExpress Examples repository.
