Row Totals are rows which display sub-totals calculated for outer row fields. Column Totals are columns which display sub-totals calculated for outer column fields.

PivotGridControl supports automatic and custom totals. Automatic totals are calculated using a summary function which is specified by a corresponding Data Field.

Custom totals can be calculated using any summary function. It's possible to calculate multiple custom totals against a data field.

The table below lists the main properties which affect an element's appearance:








Custom Totals Availability


Custom Total Collection


Total Location






The PivotGridAppearancesBase.FieldValueTotal property.

Note: the appearance settings are not in effect if the control is painted using the Windows XP, Office2003 or Skin painting scheme (see the PivotGridControl.LookAndFeel property).

Custom Draw Event

The PivotGridControl.CustomDrawFieldValue event.


The PivotGridFieldBase.TotalValueFormat and PivotGridCustomTotalBase.Format properties provide settings used to format the text within the total headers.

The PivotGridControl.FieldValueDisplayText event enables the display text of individual values to be customized.


Total Values:
