Pivot Chart in ASP.NET MVC Pivot Table control

In pivot table component, pivot chart would act as an additional visualization component with its basic and important characteristic like drill down and drill up, 15+ chart types, series customization, axis customization, legend customization, export, print and tooltip. Its main purpose is to show the pivot data in graphical format.

If user prefers, the pivot chart component can also be displayed individually with pivot values and can change the report dynamically with the help of field list and grouping bar. Using the PivotViewDisplayOption property in PivotView class, user can set the visibility of grid and chart in pivot table component. It holds below properties,

  • View: Specifies the pivot table component to display grid alone or chart alone or both.
  • Primary: Specifies the pivot table to display either grid or chart as primary component during initial loading. It is applicable only when setting the property View to View.Both.

The below sample displays the pivot chart component based on the pivot report bound on it.

razor
DisplayView.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.PivotView

@Html.EJS().PivotView("PivotView").Height("300").DataSourceSettings(dataSourceSettings => dataSourceSettings.DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.DataSource).ExpandAll(false)
.FormatSettings(formatsettings =>
{
    formatsettings.Name("Amount").Format("C0").MaximumSignificantDigits(10).MinimumSignificantDigits(1).UseGrouping(true).Add();
}).Rows(rows =>
{
    rows.Name("Country").Add(); rows.Name("Products").Add();
}).Columns(columns =>
{
    columns.Name("Year").Caption("Year").Add(); columns.Name("Quarter").Add();
}).Values(values =>
{
    values.Name("Sold").Caption("Units Sold").Add(); values.Name("Amount").Caption("Sold Amount").Add();
})).DisplayOption(new PivotViewDisplayOption { View = View.Chart }).ChartSettings(chartSettings => chartSettings.ChartSeries(chartSeries => chartSeries.Type(ChartSeriesType.Column))).Render()
public ActionResult Index()
{
    var data = GetPivotData();
    ViewBag.DataSource = data;
    return View();
}

Data Binding

End user can bind both local and remote data binding options available in the component to feed the data. The DataSource property can be assigned either with an instance of DataManager or list of object. For more information refer here.

Chart Types

Supports 19 different types of charts as follows,

  • Line
  • Column
  • Area
  • Bar
  • StepArea
  • StackingColumn
  • StackingArea
  • StackingBar
  • StepLine
  • Pareto
  • Bubble
  • Scatter
  • Spline
  • SplineArea
  • StackingColumn100
  • StackingBar100
  • StackingArea100
  • Polar
  • Radar

ChartSeriesType.Line is the default pivot chart type. User can change the pivot chart type by using the property Type in PivotChartSeries class.

In the below code sample, the pivot chart type is set as ChartSeriesType.Bar.

razor
ChartType.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.PivotView

@Html.EJS().PivotView("PivotView").Height("300").DataSourceSettings(dataSourceSettings => dataSourceSettings.DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.DataSource).ExpandAll(false)
.FormatSettings(formatsettings =>
{
    formatsettings.Name("Amount").Format("C0").MaximumSignificantDigits(10).MinimumSignificantDigits(1).UseGrouping(true).Add();
}).Rows(rows =>
{
    rows.Name("Country").Add(); rows.Name("Products").Add();
}).Columns(columns =>
{
    columns.Name("Year").Caption("Year").Add(); columns.Name("Quarter").Add();
}).Values(values =>
{
    values.Name("Sold").Caption("Units Sold").Add(); values.Name("Amount").Caption("Sold Amount").Add();
})).DisplayOption(new PivotViewDisplayOption { View = View.Chart }).ChartSettings(chartSettings => chartSettings.ChartSeries(chartSeries => chartSeries.Type(ChartSeriesType.Bar))).Render()
public ActionResult Index()

Accumulation Charts

Supports 4 different types of accumulation charts as follows,

  • Pie
  • Doughnut
  • Funnel
  • Pyramid

As like other chart types it can be changed using the property Type in PivotChartSeries class.

In the below code sample, the Pie chart is rendered, and the other accumulation charts can be switched using the drop-down list.

razor
Accumulation.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.PivotView

Drill Down/Up

In the accumulation charts, drill down and drill up operations can be performed using the built-in context menu option. It will be shown while clicking on the chart series. The context menu has the following options: Expand - It is to drill down the corresponding series until the last level. Collapse - It is to drill up the corresponding series until the first level. Exit - It is to close the context menu.

The drill operation in accumulation charts can be performed only for row headers.

razor
Drill.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.PivotView
@Html.EJS().PivotView("PivotView").Height("300").DisplayOption(new PivotViewDisplayOption { View = View.Chart }).ShowFieldList(true).DataSourceSettings(dataSourceSettings => dataSourceSettings.DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.Data).ExpandAll(false)

    var data = GetPivotData();
    ViewBag.DataSource = data;
    return View();
}

output

Column Headers and Delimiters

Unlike other chart types, the accumulation charts consider the values of a single column from the pivot table to be drawn. Preferably the first column of the pivot table is considered by default. But it can be changed by defining the column headers using the ColumnHeader property in ChartSettings class.

If the column has more than one header, then need to mention all the headers separated by the delimiter -, for example,FY 2016-Q2. Using the property ColumnDelimiter in ChartSettings class, one can set the desired delimiter to separate the column headers.

razor
Column.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.PivotView
@Html.EJS().PivotView("PivotView").Height("300").DisplayOption(new PivotViewDisplayOption { View = View.Chart }).ShowFieldList(true).DataSourceSettings(dataSourceSettings => dataSourceSettings.DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.Data).ExpandAll(false)

{
    drilledmembers.Name("Year").Items(new string[] { "FY 2016" }).Add();
})

{
    chartSeries.Type(ChartSeriesType.Doughnut);

}).ColumnHeader( "FY 2016-Q2" ).ColumnDelimiter("-")).Render();
public ActionResult Index()
{
    var data = GetPivotData();
    ViewBag.DataSource = data;
    return View();
}

Label Customization

The data labels are visible by default showing header name. Its visibility can be modified using the Visible boolean property in DataLabel. With regard to the label arrangement, the Smart Labels options help to arrange labels efficiently without overlapping. It can be disabled by setting the EnableSmartLabels property inChartSettings class as false. The Position property in DataLabel allows to specify the position of the data label. The available options are,

  • Outside: Positions the label outside the point. It is the default option.
  • Inside: Positions the label inside the point.

In the following code sample, the data labels are placed inside.

razor
DataLabel.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.PivotView

@Html.EJS().PivotView("PivotView").Height("300").DisplayOption(new PivotViewDisplayOption { View = View.Chart }).ShowFieldList(true).DataSourceSettings(dataSourceSettings => dataSourceSettings.DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.Data).ExpandAll(false)

Field List

User can enable the field list by setting the property ShowFieldList in PivotView class as true. By using this, user can customize the report dynamically and view the result in pivot chart. For more information regarding the field list, refer the field list topic.

In the following sample, the Popup mode of field list is enabled in the pivot chart integration.

razor
ChartFieldList.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.PivotView

@Html.EJS().PivotView("PivotView").Height("300").DataSourceSettings(dataSourceSettings => dataSourceSettings.DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.DataSource).ExpandAll(false)

    var data = GetPivotData();
    ViewBag.DataSource = data;
    return View();
}

output

Grouping Bar

User can enable the grouping bar by setting the property ShowGroupingBar in PivotView class as true. The grouping bar in pivot chart shows a dropdown list in value axis instead of buttons. The dropdown list holds list of value fields bounded in the PivotViewDataSourceSettings and it can be switched to draw the pivot chart with the selected value field. This has been defined as the default behavior in the pivot chart component. For more information regarding the grouping bar, refer the grouping bar topic.

For multiple axis support, buttons will be placed in value axis instead of dropdown list.

razor
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.PivotView

@Html.EJS().PivotView("PivotView").Height("300").DataSourceSettings(dataSourceSettings => dataSourceSettings.DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.DataSource).ExpandAll(false)

})).DisplayOption(new PivotViewDisplayOption { View = View.Chart }).ChartSettings(chartSettings => chartSettings.ChartSeries(chartSeries => chartSeries.Type(ChartSeriesType.Column))).ShowGroupingBar(true).Render()

output

For accumulation charts alone, a drop-down list will be placed in the column axis instead of the buttons. The drop-down list shows the column headers available in the pivot table. Users can dynamically switch column headers with the help of the drop-down list, and the accumulation chart will be updated accordingly.

Single Axis

By default, the pivot chart will be drawn with the value field (measure) which is set first in the report under value axis. But, user can change to specific value field using the property Value in ChartSettings class.

razor
ChartSingle.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.PivotView

@Html.EJS().PivotView("PivotView").Height("300").DataSourceSettings(dataSourceSettings => dataSourceSettings.DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.DataSource).ExpandAll(false)

public ActionResult Index()
{
    var data = GetPivotData();
    ViewBag.DataSource = data;
    return View();
}

output

Multi Axis

User can draw the pivot chart with multiple value fields by setting the property EnableMultiAxis in ChartSettings class as true. In the below code sample, the pivot chart will be drawn with both value fields “Sold” and “Amount” available in the PivotViewDataSourceSettings.

The multi axis support is not applicable for the accumulation chart types like pie, doughnut, pyramid, and funnel.

razor
ChartMultiValue.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.PivotView

@Html.EJS().PivotView("PivotView").Height("300").DataSourceSettings(dataSourceSettings => dataSourceSettings.DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.DataSource).ExpandAll(false)
.FormatSettings(formatsettings =>
{
    formatsettings.Name("Amount").Format("C0").MaximumSignificantDigits(10).MinimumSignificantDigits(1).UseGrouping(true).Add();
}).Rows(rows =>
{
    rows.Name("Country").Add(); rows.Name("Products").Add();
}).Columns(columns =>
{
    columns.Name("Year").Caption("Year").Add(); columns.Name("Quarter").Add();
}).Values(values =>
{
    values.Name("Sold").Caption("Units Sold").Add(); values.Name("Amount").Caption("Sold Amount").Add();
})).DisplayOption(new PivotViewDisplayOption { View = View.Chart }).ChartSettings(chartSettings => chartSettings.EnableMultiAxis(true).ChartSeries(chartSeries => chartSeries.Type(ChartSeriesType.Column))).Render()
public ActionResult Index()
{
    var data = GetPivotData();
    ViewBag.DataSource = data;
    return View();
}

output

If the user binds more value fields, the result will be multiple pivot charts, and each chart will shrink within the parent container height. To avoid this, set the EnableScrollOnMultiAxis property in ChartSettings to true. By doing so, each pivot chart will only shrink to a minimal “160px” – “180px” height showing a vertical scrollbar for a clear view.

Series Customization

User can customize series of the pivot chart using ChartSeries in ChartSettings class. The changes handled in the property will be reflected commonly in all chart series.

In the following sample, the pivot chart type and border has been changed for all the series.

razor
ChartSeries.cs
@using Syncfusion.EJ2.PivotView

@Html.EJS().PivotView("PivotView").Height("300").DataSourceSettings(dataSourceSettings => dataSourceSettings.DataSource((IEnumerable<object>)ViewBag.DataSource).ExpandAll(false)
.FormatSettings(formatsettings =>
{
    formatsettings.Name("Amount").Format("C0").MaximumSignificantDigits(10).MinimumSignificantDigits(1).UseGrouping(true).Add();
}).Rows(rows =>
{
    rows.Name("Country").Add(); rows.Name("Products").Add();
}).Columns(columns =>
{
    columns.Name("Year").Caption("Year").Add(); columns.Name("Quarter").Add();
}).Values(values =>
{
    values.Name("Sold").Caption("Units Sold").Add(); values.Name("Amount").Caption("Sold Amount").Add();
})).DisplayOption(new PivotViewDisplayOption { View = View.Chart }).ChartSettings(chartSettings => chartSettings.ChartSeries(chartSeries => chartSeries.Type(ChartSeriesType.Column).EnableTooltip(false).Border(border => border.Color("#000").Width(2)))).Render()
public ActionResult Index()
{
    var data = GetPivotData();
    ViewBag.DataSource = data;
    return View();
}

output

User can also customize the pivot chart series individually using the ChartSeriesCreated event, which occurs after the pivot chart series has been created. You can customize each series individually by iterating them.

In the following sample, the even series are hidden in the pivot chart.

razor

{
    formatsettings.Name("Amount").Format("C0").MaximumSignificantDigits(10).MinimumSignificantDigits(1).UseGrouping(true).Add();
}).Rows(rows =>
{
    rows.Name("Country").Add(); rows.Name("Products").Add();
}).Columns(columns =>
{
    columns.Name("Year").Caption("Year").Add(); columns.Name("Quarter").Add();
}).Values(values =>
{
    values.Name("Sold").Caption("Units Sold").Add(); values.Name("Amount").Caption("Sold Amount").Add();
})).ChartSeriesCreated("chartSeriesCreated").DisplayOption(new PivotViewDisplayOption { View = View.Chart }).ChartSettings(chartSettings => chartSettings.ChartSeries(chartSeries => chartSeries.Type(ChartSeriesType.Column))).Render()

<script>
    function chartSeriesCreated(args) {
        for (var pos = 0; pos < args.series.length; pos++) {
            if (pos % 2 == 0) {
                args.series[pos].visible = false;
            }
        }
    }
