The Layout page allows you to customize the control's layout and save this layout to an XML file.
1. Grid Preview
Within the Grid Preview page, you can change the Pivot Grid Control's layout in the same way as at runtime. You can also use the built-in context menus. If the control is bound to a DataSet object via a .NET Data Provider, you can click the Preview Data button to load data from the underlying data source. After customizing the Pivot Grid Control's layout, you can apply it using the Apply button. If the changes have not yet been applied, a warning dialog box is automatically invoked when switching to another page or closing the designer.
2. Storing Layout
To save/load a control's layout to/from a XML file, use the following options:
- Load Layout button - Invokes an Open dialog, which allows you to load the control layout that was previously saved to a XML file.
- Save Layout button - Invokes a Save dialog, which allows the current layout to be saved to an XML file.
- Including Appearance check box - Allows you to include appearance settings in the XML file. To learn more about appearance layout, see the Appearances Page topic.
