                                This example demonstrates how to make the Pivot dashboard item behaves like a single-select Master Filter item. This approach uses several features: filtering by dashboard parameters, access to underlying controls, conditional formatting, and API methods to access the underlying data.

                                1. Create a set of dashboard parameters corresponding to dimensions in the Pivot item you want to use for filtering. This example uses four parameters: ProductParam, CategoryParam, CountryParam, and CityParam. They correspond to the Product, Category, Country, and City fields used in the rows and columns section of the Product Amount by Periods Pivot item.

                                2. Handle the DashboardDesigner.DashboardItemClick event to get dimensions' values from the clicked element and pass them to dashboard parameters.
                                void OnDashboardItemClick(object sender, DashboardItemMouseActionEventArgs e) { if(e.DashboardItemName == "pivotDashboardItem1" && !skipFiltering) { dashboardDesigner1.BeginUpdateParameters(); //clear all parameters ClearPivotFilter(); //set selected columns and rows to parameters SetParameterValue(e.GetAxisPoint("Column")); SetParameterValue(e.GetAxisPoint("Row")); dashboardDesigner1.EndUpdateParameters(); } }
                                The skipFiltering variable indicates whether the Expand / Collapse button is pressed, and is used to skip setting filters in this case.

                                3. The code snippet above does not set or clear dimension values inaccessible for the clicked element. You need to set parameter values that correspond only to the selected intersection and clear previous values in the dashboard parameters before setting new ones.
                                Create the following methods used to clear parameter values:
                                void ClearPivotFilter() { PivotDashboardItem pivotItem = dashboardDesigner1.Dashboard.Items["pivotDashboardItem1"] as PivotDashboardItem; ClearParameters(pivotItem.Columns); ClearParameters(pivotItem.Rows); } void ClearParameters(DimensionCollection dimensions) { foreach(var dimension in dimensions) dashboardDesigner1.Parameters[GetParameterDataMember(dimension.DataMember)].SelectedValue = null; }

                                4. The Dashboard Designer raises the DashboardDesigner.DashboardItemClick event when an end user clicks the Expand / Collapse button in a row or column. Handle the DashboardDesigner.DashboardItemControlCreated event to skip setting filters in this case.
                                bool skipFiltering = false; private void dashboardDesigner1_DashboardItemControlCreated(object sender, DevExpress.DashboardWin.DashboardItemControlEventArgs e) { if(e.DashboardItemName == "pivotDashboardItem1") { e.PivotGridControl.MouseDown += PivotGridControl_MouseDown; } } private void PivotGridControl_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e) { PivotGridControl pivot = sender as PivotGridControl; PivotGridHitInfo hi = pivot.CalcHitInfo(e.Location); skipFiltering = (hi.ValueInfo != null && hi.ValueInfo.ValueHitTest == PivotGridValueHitTest.ExpandButton); }

                                5. To filter other dashboard items by dashboard parameters related to the Pivot Item, add all required dimensions to these items. If you do not want to display dimensions to end users, place dimensions to the "Hidden Dimensions" section.
                                Then add the following filter expression to the dashboard item:
                                ([Dimension1] = ?Dimension1Param Or ?Dimension1Param Is Null) And
                                ([Dimension2] = ?Dimension2Param Or ?Dimension2Param Is Null) And
                                ([DimensionN] = ?DimensionNParam Or ?DimensionNParam Is Null)
                                This example uses the following expression:
                                ([Product] = ?ProductParam Or ?ProductParam Is Null) 
                                And ([Category] = ?CategoryParam Or ?CategoryParam Is Null) 
                                And ([Country] = ?CountryParam Or ?CountryParam Is Null) 
                                And ([City] = ?CityParam Or ?CityParam Is Null)
                                The image below shows the expression for the Chart and Grid dashboard items:

                                The steps above are sufficient to implement the minimal filtering functionality. Further steps improve the UI behavior.

                                1. Optional. To highlight cells selected in the Pivot Grid, add the format rule with the following expression:
                                (?CityParam Is Not Null Or ?CountryParam Is Not Null Or ?ProductParam Is Not Null Or ?CategoryParam Is Not Null) And ([Product] = ?ProductParam Or ?ProductParam Is Null) And ([Category] = ?CategoryParam Or ?CategoryParam Is Null) And ([Country] = ?CountryParam Or ?CountryParam Is Null) And ([City] = ?CityParam Or ?CityParam Is Null)

                                2. Optional. Handle the DashboardDesigner.CustomizeDashboardItemCaption event to add the Clear Master Filter button to the item’s caption:
                                void OnCustomizeDashboardItemCaption(object sender, CustomizeDashboardItemCaptionEventArgs e) { if(e.DashboardItemName == "pivotDashboardItem1") { DashboardToolbarItem showDataItem = new DashboardToolbarItem("Clear Master Filter", new Action<DashboardToolbarItemClickEventArgs>((args) => { dashboardDesigner1.BeginUpdateParameters(); ClearPivotFilter(); dashboardDesigner1.EndUpdateParameters(); })); showDataItem.Enabled = IsAnyFilterSet(); showDataItem.SvgImage = svgImageCollection1[0]; e.Items.Insert(0, showDataItem); } }
