How to: Add an Unbound Field to Supply Additional Data

Assume that the PivotGridControl is bound to an "Order Details" data table (Northwind database) that contains the "UnitPrice", "Quantity" and "Discount" fields. There isn't any field which represents the total sum, however this can be calculated manually as follows: UnitPrice*Quantity*(1-Discount). This example shows how to add an unbound field to the PivotGridControl, in this case, to represent the total sum of an order.

First, a field with a unique field name ("Total Sum") is created. An unbound field's PivotGridFieldBase.FieldName property must be unique and different than those in the control's data source.

Secondly, the field's PivotGridFieldBase.UnboundType property is set to UnboundColumnType.Decimal since the field is supposed to display floating values.

Finally, the PivotGridControl.CustomUnboundFieldData event is handled to populate the field with data.
