Pivot data with aggregation and output to HTML

Example with one pivot

Say your data is a list of animals

Family Name Size Quantity
Felidae Cat Small 1
Felidae Lion Tall 1
Felidae Tiger Tall 1
Canidae Dog Small 1
Canidae Wolf Tall 1
Canidae Racoon Small 1
Canidae Fox Small 1
  1. First, represent your data as a List of Row's

    var animals = new List<Row> 
    {
        new Row 
        {
            Fields = new Dictionary<string, object> 
            {
                { "Name", "Cat" },
                { "Family", "Felidae" },
                { "Size", "Small" },
                { "Quantity", 1 },
            }
        },
        new Row
        {
            Fields = new Dictionary<string, object> 
            {
                { "Name", "Lion" },
                { "Family", "Felidae" },
                { "Size", "Tall" },
                { "Quantity", 1 },
            }
        },
        new Row
        {
            Fields = new Dictionary<string, object> 
            {
                { "Name", "Tiger" },
                { "Family", "Felidae" },
                { "Size", "Tall" },
                { "Quantity", 1 },
            }
        },
        new Row
        {
            Fields = new Dictionary<string, object> 
            {
                { "Name", "Dog" },
                { "Family", "Canidae" },
                { "Size", "Small" },
                { "Quantity", 1 },
            }
        },
        new Row
        {
            Fields = new Dictionary<string, object> 
            {
                { "Name", "Wolf" },
                { "Family", "Canidae" },
                { "Size", "Tall" },
                { "Quantity", 1 },
            }
        },
        new Row
        {
            Fields = new Dictionary<string, object> 
            {
                { "Name", "Racoon" },
                { "Family", "Canidae" },
                { "Size", "Small" },
                { "Quantity", 1 },
            }
        },
        new Row
        {
            Fields = new Dictionary<string, object> 
            {
                { "Name", "Fox" },
                { "Family", "Canidae" },
                { "Size", "Small" },
                { "Quantity", 1 },
            }
        },
    };
    
  2. Initialize grid.
    In this example we are going to group by "Size"

    Grid grid = new Grid(originalData: animals,
        columnDefinitions: new ColumnDefinition[] { 
            new ColumnDefinition { HeaderName = "Family", Field = "Family", CssClass = "", Width = 100 },
            new ColumnDefinition { HeaderName = "Name", Field = "Name", CssClass = "", Width = 100 },
            new ColumnDefinition { HeaderName = "Size", Field = "Size", CssClass = "", Width = 100 },
            new ColumnDefinition { HeaderName = "Qty", Field = "Quantity", CssClass = "align-right", Width = 40 }
        },
        pivotColumns: new string[] { "Size" },
        aggregatedColumns: new string[] { "Quantity" });
    
  3. Get html

    string html = grid.GetHtml();
    
  4. Output:

Family Name Size Qty
Small 4
Felidae Cat Small 1
Canidae Dog Small 1
Canidae Racoon Small 1
Canidae Fox Small 1
Tall 3
Felidae Lion Tall 1
Felidae Tiger Tall 1
Canidae Wolf Tall 1

Example with multiple pivots

With the same source data, this:

   pivotColumns: new string[] { "Family", "Size" },

Will output this:

Family Name Size Qty
Felidae 3
Felidae Small 1
Felidae Cat Small 1
Felidae Tall 2
Felidae Lion Tall 1
Felidae Tiger Tall 1
Canidae 4
Canidae Small 3
Canidae Dog Small 1
Canidae Racoon Small 1
Canidae Fox Small 1
Canidae Tall 1
Canidae Wolf Tall 1

TO-DO:

  • Format numbers
  • Format dates
  • Allow column grouping in header (eg. Column "Birth": Column "Day" + Column "Month" + Column "Year")
  • Allow other types of aggregation: average, min, max
  • Sorting
