Customize number, date, and time values

You can format the number, date, and time values for each field using formatSettings option under dataSource. It can be configured through code behind, during initial rendering.

Number formatting

For numbers, the formatting settings required to apply through code behind are:

  • name: It allows to set the field name.
  • format: It allows to set the format of the respective field.

Also, you can customize the applied number format by setting the NumberFormatOptions options in formatSettings itself.

razor
Number.cs
@Html.EJS().PivotView("PivotGrid").Width("100%").Height("300").DataSource(dataSource => dataSource.Data((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.Data)
.ExpandAll(false).EnableSorting(true)
.FormatSettings(formatsettings =>
{
formatsettings.Name("Amount").Format("C2").MaximumSignificantDigits(3).MinimumSignificantDigits(1).UseGrouping(false).Add();
}).Rows(rows =>
{
rows.Name("Country").Add(); rows.Name("Products").Add();
}).Columns(columns =>
{
columns.Name("Year").Caption("Production Year").Add(); columns.Name("Quarter").Add();
}).Values(values =>
{
values.Name("Sold").Caption("Units Sold").Add(); values.Name("Amount").Caption("Sold Amount").Add();
})).Render()
public ActionResult Index()
{
    var data = GetPivotData();
    ViewBag.data = data;
    return View();
}

  • name: It allows to set the field name.
