Set a SQL data as datasource

It can be achieved by making proper SQL based connection with the corresponding data set. The code snippet explains the same.


class OrderDetails
   public static DataSet GetOrderDetials()
          DataSet ds = new DataSet();
          using (SqlCeConnection con = new SqlCeConnection(@"DataSource=Data\Northwind.sdf"))
             SqlCeCommand cmd = new SqlCeCommand(@"SELECT Top(100) [Order ID], [Product ID], [Unit Price], Quantity FROM [Order Details] ", con);
             SqlCeDataAdapter da = new SqlCeDataAdapter(cmd);
             return ds;
       catch(Exception e)
          MessageBox.Show("Exception in connection: \t"+e.Message);
          return null;

Where do you do the actual binding of the DataSet to the PivotGrid? Reply

Hi Meir, We could bind the DataSet to the PivotGrid by setting it as an Itemsource for the grid. Please refer to the below code snippet and simple sample to illustrate the behavior. public MainWindow() { InitializeComponent(); //Binding DataView to the ItemSource this.pivotGrid1.ItemSource = OrderDetails.GetOrderDetials(); this.pivotGrid1.PivotColumns.Add(new PivotItem { FieldHeader = "OrderID", FieldMappingName = "Order ID", TotalHeader = "Total" }); this.pivotGrid1.PivotRows.Add(new PivotItem { FieldHeader = "ProductID", FieldMappingName = "Product ID", TotalHeader = "Total" }); this.pivotGrid1.PivotCalculations.Add(new PivotComputationInfo { CalculationName = "UnitPrice", FieldName = "Unit Price", Format = "C", SummaryType = SummaryType.DecimalTotalSum }); this.pivotGrid1.PivotCalculations.Add(new PivotComputationInfo { CalculationName = "Quantity", FieldName = "Quantity", SummaryType = SummaryType.Count }); } Sample Link: http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/forum/119969/DataTable_Demo-1155036870.zip Thanks, Vigneshwaran B Reply
