How to change the measure name in the PivotGrid?

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejPivotGrid

This KB illustrates that how to change the measure name in PivotGrid.


In order to customize the measure name in the PivotGrid, refer to the following steps.

Step 1:

JSON data is framed based on the information such as current OlapReport and grid layout. The JSON data contains

  • Updated and current OlapReport
  • Values besides row header, column header, value cell and summary cell in the PivotGrid.

Step 2:

Once JSON records are framed by using the GetJsonData method, it is sent back to the client side for PivotGrid rendering. Here the measure name can be change as per the requirement.

Step 3:

On interrupting, values that are bound to PivotGrid for view are available in the dictionary under the key name PivotRecords. These values are extracted back and de-serialized.  

Step 4:

Now, the de-serialized values are iterated. When the required measure name is found, it can be changed as desired.


public Dictionary<string, object> InitializeGrid(string action, string currentReport, string gridLayout, string customObject)
    OlapDataManager DataManager = new OlapDataManager(connectionString);                               
    var serJSON = olapClientHelper.GetJsonData(action, DataManager, gridLayout);
    var desJSON = serializer.Deserialize<List<Dictionary<string, string>>>(serJSON["PivotRecords"].ToString());
    foreach (var item in desJSON)
        if (item["Value"] == "Customer Count")
            item["Value"] = "#Customer"; break;             
        serJSON["PivotRecords"] = serializer.Serialize(desJSON);
        return serJSON;



Public Function InitializeGrid(ByVal action As String, ByVal currentReport As String, ByVal gridLayout As String, ByVal customObject As String) As Dictionary(Of String, Object)
Dim DataManager As OlapDataManager = New OlapDataManager(connectionString)
Dim serJSON = olapClientHelper.GetJsonData(action, DataManager, gridLayout)
Dim desJSON = serializer.Deserialize(Of List(Of Dictionary(Of String, String)))(serJSON("PivotRecords").ToString())
For Each Dim item In desJSON
 If item("Value") = "Customer Count" Then
  item("Value") = "#Customer"
  Exit For
 End If
Next item
serJSON("PivotRecords") = serializer.Serialize(desJSON)
Return serJSON
End Function
