WinForms Pivot Grid Code Example

Easily get started with the WinForms Pivot Grid using a few simple lines of C# code example as demonstrated below. Also explore our WinForms Pivot Grid Example that shows you how to render and configure the Pivot Grid in WinForms.

using Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.PivotAnalysis;
using Syncfusion.PivotAnalysis.Base;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            PivotGridControl pivotGridControl1 = new PivotGridControl();
            pivotGridControl1.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
            //To add item source for pivot grid
            pivotGridControl1.ItemSource = ProductSales.GetSalesData();
            pivotGridControl1.PivotRows.Add(new PivotItem
            {
                FieldMappingName = "Product",
                TotalHeader = "Total"
            });
            pivotGridControl1.PivotRows.Add(new
            PivotItem
            { FieldMappingName = "Year", TotalHeader = "Total" });
            pivotGridControl1.PivotColumns.Add(new
            PivotItem
            { FieldMappingName = "State", TotalHeader = "Total" });
            pivotGridControl1.PivotCalculations.Add(new
            PivotComputationInfo
            {
                FieldName = "Amount",

We do not sell the WinForms Pivot Grid control separately. It is only available for purchase as part of the Syncfusion WinForms suite, which contains over 100 WinForms controls, including Pivot Grid. A single developer license for the Syncfusion Essential Studio for WinForms suite costs $995.00 USD, including one year of support and updates. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

You can find our WinForms Pivot Grid demo on

GitHub location.

No, our 100+ WinForms controls, including Pivot Grid, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their Pivot Grid alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 100+ WinForms controls for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.

A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.
