Drill through grid cell edit type in Angular Pivotview component

15 Nov 20225 minutes to read

Using the drillThrough event in the pivot table, you can define the edit type of a particular column in the grid present inside the drill-through dialog. To do so, check the column name in the drillThrough event and then specify the edit type of that column using the gridColumns.editType event argument.

The [gridColumns.editType] property must be set based on the column’s data type. For example, the string data type will not be applicable for the numeric text box edit type.

In the below example, the data type of the Country column is set to DropDownList.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { IDataOptions, PivotView, DrillThroughService, DrillThroughEventArgs } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-pivotview';
import { CellEditSettings } from '@syncfusion/ej2-pivotview/src/pivotview';
import { Pivot_Data } from './datasource.ts';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-container',
  providers: [DrillThroughService],
  template: `<ejs-pivotview #pivotview id='PivotView' height='350' [dataSourceSettings]=dataSourceSettings [editSettings]='editSettings' width=width (drillThrough)='drillThrough($event)'></ejs-pivotview>`
})

export class AppComponent {

    public width: string;
    public dataSourceSettings: IDataOptions;
    public editSettings: CellEditSettings;

    drillThrough(args:DrillThroughEventArgs) {
        for (var i = 0; i < args.gridColumns.length; i++) {
            if (args.gridColumns[i].field === 'Country') {
                args.gridColumns[i].editType = 'dropdownedit';
                //args.gridColumns[i].editType = 'numericedit';
                //args.gridColumns[i].editType = 'textedit';
                //args.gridColumns[i].editType = 'booleanedit';
                //args.gridColumns[i].editType = 'datepickeredit';
                //args.gridColumns[i].editType = 'datetimepickeredit';
            }
        }
    }

    ngOnInit(): void {

        this.width = "100%";

        this.dataSourceSettings = {
            dataSource: Pivot_Data,
            expandAll: false,
            enableSorting: true,
            drilledMembers: [{ name: 'Country', items: ['France'] }],
            columns: [{ name: 'Year', caption: 'Production Year' }, { name: 'Quarter' }],
            values: [{ name: 'Sold', caption: 'Units Sold' }, { name: 'Amount', caption: 'Sold Amount' }],
            rows: [{ name: 'Country' }, { name: 'Products' }],
            formatSettings: [{ name: 'Amount', format: 'C0' }],
            filters: []
        };

        this.editSettings = {
            allowEditing: true, allowAdding: true, allowDeleting: true, mode: 'Normal', allowCommandColumns: false,
            allowEditOnDblClick: true, showConfirmDialog: true, showDeleteConfirmDialog: false
        } as CellEditSettings;
    }
