How to create summaries for GridGroupingControl that update dynamically based on the current selection?

Asked On August 27, 2012 01:08 PM UTC

What I'm trying to do is, to display some data in a grid and add a "selection-based-total".

Simply put, it shows the sum of a a particular column in the grid, but only of those rows that are currently selected.

My current approach:
I've created a custom summary class. And to refresh on selection change, I'm doing this:
grid.SelectedRecordsChanged += (sender, e) => grid.Table.InvalidateSummary();

But this doesn't seem to be working.

Any ideas whether this it possible at all? If yes, then how?

Hi Harshath,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Its possible, you can create a Summaries for GridGroupingControl.Here what i do to create summary. I hope this will be very useful for you.

// Setting summary -                                      

            GridSummaryColumnDescriptor sd1 = new GridSummaryColumnDescriptor();
            sd1.Name = "Net";
            sd1.DataMember = "Net";
            sd1.DisplayColumn = "Net";
            sd1.Format = "{Total}";
            sd1.SummaryType = SummaryType.Custom;

            this.gridGroupingControl.TableDescriptor.Columns.IsModified = true;

            this.gridGroupingControl.TableDescriptor.SummaryRows.Add(new GridSummaryRowDescriptor("Row 1", "Total", new GridSummaryColumnDescriptor[] { sd1 }));

       this.gridGroupingControl.TableDescriptor.Appearance.AnySummaryCell.HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Center;
            this.gridGroupingControl.TableDescriptor.Appearance.AnySummaryCell.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(218, 234, 255);

Then you can hook a SelectedRecordsChanged in your Grid.

Refer the following code this may useful. Its working.

private void gridGroupingControl_SelectedRecordsChanged(object sender, SelectedRecordsChangedEventArgs e)
            if (gridGroupingControl.Table.SelectedRecords != null && gridGroupingControl.Table.SelectedRecords.Count != 0)

Please let me know if you have any further concerns.

Vinish Kumar K.
