About ASPxPivotGrid

Add data mining and multi-dimensional analysis to your ASP.NET applications.

ASPxPivotGrid Suite is a comprehensive data analysis, data mining, and visual reporting solution for ASP.NET 2. With ASPxPivotGrid, your users can break down raw data in any manner they require using easy-to-understand Windows commands. By incorporating the ASPxPivotGrid in your application, you can deliver an almost endless array of reports. ASPxPivotGrid is able to slice and dice information efficiently and provide customers with an intuitive end-user experience. ASPxPivotGrid delivers numerous layout customization options with total end-user control over each individual on-screen report. ASPxPivotGrid Subscription with Source code Licenses available.

OLAP Data Source Support

Microsoft Analysis Services (OLAP) data sources are now fully supported by the ASPxPivotGrid. If bound to such a data source, a pivot grid control delegates all data management and calculations to the server side. This feature greatly increases your application's performance if you are dealing with a large dataset. In this case, the entire dataset will have to be reloaded with each control update. It is much faster to request server-side data recalculation and then simply display the downloaded result.

Quickly Display Table Data into Fully Customizable Visual Reports

The ASPxPivotGrid Suite is a component library for ASP.NET 2 that allows your end users to slice and dice data in a manner similar to that found in MS Excel. It can convert hard to read and difficult to dissect dataset information into compact and summarized visual reports - making your applications far more usable and more effective at addressing your customer's real-time business analysis needs. And just as important, with the ASPxPivotGrid, users can easily change a report's layout visually in order to examine data from different/multiple perspectives. The benefits of this are two-fold - first, you never again have to foresee all possible report scenarios your end-users might require (saving you time and increasing your productivity) and second, your users will not have to deal with hard to use and overly complex reporting tools to answer their business questions.

Control the Level of Detail

By default, the row and column axes contain each unique value in the source column. With the ASPxPivotGrid, you can quickly simplify a report by merging values. For instance, you might have a report containing survey data in which the respondent's age represents an important characteristic. End-users may not want to browse through each and every unique age and instead want to see the ages of respondents in intervals such as 21-30, 31-40, etc. Instead of viewing sales by each unique date, they may want to view the sales for just the first few months. The axis can be customized in almost any fashion and the most common customizations need only a single property to be modified for its implementation.

Arrange Values Hierarchically - See Raw or Summarized Data in a Single Report

Since the visual control offers your end-users total runtime customization flexibility, not a single report layout needs to be modified to view data at different detail levels. You simply place fields at lower detail levels on the column or row area. Field values are automatically arranged into a tree structure with expandable parents. End-users are free to expand and collapse child groups to see more summarized or raw reports.

Automatic and Manually Specified Totals

Among the many features available in the component library is its ability to display grand totals for each row and column automatically. On the rare occasion that the built-in summary computation engine does not address a specific business requirement, you can display any number of totals for any value group.

Sort Data and Display Top Rows - Easily Access the Most Important Information

The ASPxPivotGrid automatically sorts row and column values so you can easily locate required data. Comprehensive data analysis, however, often requires a two-way approach to data navigation in that you may need to find data by a specific value or find a value by its data. To allow for the latter approach, the ASPxPivotGrid introduces a unique feature - sorting values by their corresponding grand totals. This means the product you'll see first is not the one which starts with an A or Z, but rather the one that has the most or least sales. This of course is just the beginning to more effective and efficient data analysis. You can also specify the number of top rows that are displayed. So you can view a specific number of best-selling or worst-selling products for each year, month, customer, etc. You can concentrate on only the most important information and avoid being overload with a lot of surplus data.

Filter Data - Filter Out the Values Used to Calculate Summaries on the Fly

You will find that with its built-in visual filtering option, your end-users can manipulate reports on the fly using an easy to understand and familiar visual metaphor.

  • Hide unnecessary values in the axes - Another mechanism that allows end-users to focus only on the most important data
  • Filter the data against which calculations are based - Allow your end-users manage this capability visually, the ASPxPivotGrid has a Filter Panel Region. This pane was specifically designed to contain fields that aren't currently used in the report, and when required, can be dropped onto the report to automatically alter the base data used in the calculations
