Chart based on pivot table selection in EJ2 TypeScript Pivotview control

2 May 202310 minutes to read

The cell selection support is enabled using the allowSelection property and its type and mode are configured using the selectionSettings property. The cellSelected event gets fired on every selection operation performed in the pivot table. This event returns the selected cell informations, like row header name, column header name, measure name, and value. Based on this information, the chart control will be plotted.
