Setup Vue Environment

You can use Vue CLI to setup your vue applications. To install Vue CLI use the following commands.

npm install -g @vue/cli
npm install -g @vue/cli-init

Create a Vue Application

Start a new Vue application using below Vue CLI command.

vue init webpack-simple quickstart

cd quickstart
npm install

Adding Syncfusion pivot table package

All the available Essential JS 2 packages are published in npmjs.com registry.

To install pivot table component, use the following command.

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-vue-pivotview --save

The —save will instruct NPM to include the pivot table package inside the dependencies section of the package.json.

Registering pivot table Component

You can register the pivot table component in your application by using the Vue.use().

Refer to the code example given below.

import { PivotViewPlugin } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-pivotview';

Vue.use(PivotViewPlugin);

Registering PivotViewPlugin in vue, will register the pivot table component along with its required child directives globally.

Adding CSS Reference

The pivot table has different themes. They are:

  • Material
  • Fabric
  • Bootstrap
  • High Contrast

import pivot table component CSS as given below in <style> section of the App.vue file.

<style>
<!-- Material theme used for this sample -->
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-inputs/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-dropdowns/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-lists/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-popups/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-popups/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-navigations/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-grids/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-pivotview/styles/material.css";
</style>

Browser compatibility

Polyfills are required to use the Pivot Table in Internet Explorer 11 browser. Refer the documentation for more details.

Adding pivot table component

Add the EJ2 Vue pivot table using <ejs-pivotview> to the <template> section of the App.vue file in src directory. The properties of pivot table can be assigned in <ejs-pivotview> tag and that can be bounded under data section.

Initializing pivot table component in an application

Add the EJ2 Vue pivot table using <ejs-pivotview> to the <template> section of the App.vue file in src directory. The properties of pivot table can be assigned in <ejs-pivotview> tag and that can be bounded under data section.

<template>
    <div id="app">
        <ejs-pivotview> </ejs-pivotview>
    </div>
</template>

Assigning sample data to the pivot table

The Pivot Table component further needs to be populated with an appropriate data source. For illustration purpose, a collection of objects mentioning the sales details of certain products over a period and region has been prepared. This sample data is assigned to the pivot table component through dataSource property under dataSourceSettings.

{% raw %}

<template>
    <div id="app">
        <ejs-pivotview :dataSourceSettings="dataSourceSettings"> </ejs-pivotview>
    </div>
</template>

<script>
import Vue from "vue";
import { PivotViewPlugin } from "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-pivotview";

Vue.use(PivotViewPlugin);

export default {
  data () {
    return {
      dataSourceSettings: {
        dataSource: [
            {
                "balance": 2430.87,
                "quantity": 11,
                "name": "Skinner Ward",
                "gender": "male",
                "company": "GROK",
                "state": "New Jercy"
            },
            {
                "balance": 3192.7,
                "quantity": 15,
                "name": "Gwen Dixon",
                "gender": "female",
                "company": "ICOLOGY",
                "state": "Vetaikan"
            },
            {
                "balance": 1663.84,
                "quantity": 14,
                "name": "Deena Gillespie",
                "gender": "female",
                "company": "OVERPLEX",
                "state": "New Jercy"
            }
        ]
      }
    }
  }
}
</script>
<style>
@import "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-pivotview/styles/material.css";
</style>

{% endraw %}

Adding fields to row, column, value and filter axes

Now that pivot table is initialized and assigned with sample data, will further move to showcase the component by organizing appropriate fields in row, column, value and filter axes.

In dataSourceSettings, four major axes - rows, columns, values and filters plays a vital role in defining and organizing fields from the bound data source, to render the entire pivot table component in a desired format.

rows – Collection of fields that needs to be displayed in row axis of the pivot table.

columns – Collection of fields that needs to be displayed in column axis of the pivot table.

values – Collection of fields that needs to be displayed as aggregated numeric values in the pivot table.

filters - Collection of fields that would act as master filter over the data bound in row, column and value axes of the pivot table.

In-order to define each field in the respective axis, the following basic properties should be set.

  • name: It allows to set the field name from the bound data source. It’s casing should match exactly like in the data source and if not set properly, the pivot table will not be rendered.
  • caption: It allows to set the field caption, which is the alias name of the field that needs to be displayed in the pivot table.
  • type: It allows to set the summary type of the field. By default, Sum is applied.

In this illustration, “Year” and “Quarter” are added in column, “Country” and “Products” in row, and “Sold” and “Amount” in value section respectively.

    }
  }

Applying formatting to a value field

Formatting defines a way in which values should be displayed. For example, format “C” denotes the values should be displayed in currency pattern. To do so, define the formatSetting with its name and format properties and add it to formatSettings. In this illustration, the name property is set as Amount, a field from value section and its format is set as currency. Likewise, we can set format for other value fields as well and add it to formatSettings.

Only fields from value section, which is in the form of numeric data values are applicable for formatting.

Module injection

To create pivot table with additional features, inject the required modules. The modules that are available with basic functionality are as follows.

  • GroupingBar - Inject this module to access grouping bar feature.
  • FieldList - Inject this module to access pivot field list feature.
  • CalculatedField - Inject this module to access calculated field feature.

Register the required array of modules under the key pivotview in the provide section within the App.vue file as shown below. On doing so, only the injected views will be loaded and displayed along with pivot table.

<script>
provide: {
        pivotview: [GroupingBar, FieldList, CalculatedField]
    }
</script>

Enable Pivot Field List

The field list allows to add or remove fields and also rearrange the fields between different axes, including column, row, value, and filter along with filter and sort options dynamically at runtime. It can be enabled by setting the showFieldList property to true. To know more about field list, refer here.

If the FieldList module is not injected, the Field List will not be rendered with the pivot table component.

    return {
      dataSourceSettings: {
        dataSource: pivotData,
        expandAll: false,
        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: []
      },
      height: 350,
      showFieldList: true
    }
  },
  provide: {
        pivotview: [FieldList]
    }
}
</script>
<style>
@import "@syncfusion/ej2-vue-pivotview/styles/material.css";
</style>


{% endraw %}

Enable Grouping Bar

The grouping bar feature automatically populates fields from the bound data source and allows end users to drag fields between different axes such as columns, rows, values, and filters, and alter pivot table at runtime. It also provides option to sort, filter and remove fields. It can be enabled by setting the showGroupingBar property to true. To know more about grouping bar, refer here.

If the GroupingBar module is not injected, the grouping bar will not be rendered with the pivot table component.

    }
}
</script>

{% endraw %}

Exploring Filter Axis

The filter axis contains collection of fields that would act as master filter over the data bound in row, column and value axes of the pivot table. The fields along with filter members could be set to filter axis either through report via code behind or by dragging and dropping fields from other axes to filter axis via grouping bar or field list at runtime.

{% endraw %}

Calculated field

The calculated field feature allows user to insert or add a new calculated field based on the available fields from the bound data source using basic arithmetic operators. The calculated field can be included in pivot table using the calculatedFieldSettings from code behind. Or else, calculated fields can be added at run time through the built-in dialog by just setting the allowCalculatedField property to true in pivot table. You will see a button enabled in the Field List UI automatically to invoke the calculated field dialog and perform necessary operation. To know more about calculated field, refer here.

If the CalculatedField module is not injected, the calculated field popup will not be rendered with the pivot table component. Moreover calculated field is applicable only for value fields.
