    Add Slicer in Pivot Table
    In This Topic

    In GcExcel .NET, you can use slicer to organize data in pivot table and multi pivot table by accessing the properties and methods of the IPivotCache Interface,IPivotCaches Interface,IPivotField Interface,IPivotFields Interface,IPivotTable Interface,IPivotTables InterfaceIPivotItem Interface.

    To add slicer in a pivot table, you need to first invoke the Add method of the ISlicerCaches interface to create a new slicer cache for your pivot table.

    Refer to the following example code to add slicer in a pivot table.

    C#
    Copy Code
    // Defining source data
    object[,] sourceData = new object[,] {
        { "Order ID", "Product",  "Category",   "Amount", "Date",                    "Country" },
        { 1,          "Carrots",  "Vegetables",  4270,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 6),  "United States" },
        { 2,          "Broccoli", "Vegetables",  8239,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 7),  "United Kingdom" },
        { 3,          "Banana",   "Fruit",       617,     new DateTime(2012, 1, 8),  "United States" },
        { 4,          "Banana",   "Fruit",       8384,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 10), "Canada" },
        { 5,          "Beans",    "Vegetables",  2626,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 10), "Germany" },
        { 6,          "Orange",   "Fruit",       3610,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 11), "United States" },
        { 7,          "Broccoli", "Vegetables",  9062,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 11), "Australia" },
        { 8,          "Banana",   "Fruit",       6906,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 16), "New Zealand" },
        { 9,          "Apple",    "Fruit",       2417,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 16), "France" },
        { 10,         "Apple",    "Fruit",       7431,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 16), "Canada" },
        { 11,         "Banana",   "Fruit",       8250,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 16), "Germany" },
        { 12,         "Broccoli", "Vegetables",  7012,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 18), "United States" },
        { 13,         "Carrots",  "Vegetables",  1903,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 20), "Germany" },
        { 14,         "Broccoli", "Vegetables",  2824,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 22), "Canada" },
        { 15,         "Apple",    "Fruit",       6946,    new DateTime(2012, 1, 24), "France" },
    };
    // Initialize the workbook and fetch the default worksheet
    Workbook workbook = new Workbook();
    IWorksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];
    // Adding data to the pivot table
    worksheet.Range["A1:F16"].Value = sourceData;
    
    IPivotCache pivotcache = workbook.PivotCaches.Create(worksheet.Range["A1:F16"]);
    IPivotTable pivottable1 = worksheet.PivotTables.Add(pivotcache, worksheet.Range["K5"], "pivottable1");
    IPivotTable pivottable2 = worksheet.PivotTables.Add(pivotcache, worksheet.Range["O15"], "pivottable2");
    
    
    IPivotField field_product1 = pivottable1.PivotFields[1];
    field_product1.Orientation = PivotFieldOrientation.RowField;
    
    IPivotField field_Amount1 = pivottable1.PivotFields[3];
    field_Amount1.Orientation = PivotFieldOrientation.DataField;
    
    IPivotField field_product2 = pivottable2.PivotFields[5];
    field_product2.Orientation = PivotFieldOrientation.RowField;
    
    IPivotField field_Amount2 = pivottable2.PivotFields[2];
    field_Amount2.Orientation = PivotFieldOrientation.DataField;
    field_Amount2.Function = ConsolidationFunction.Count;
    
    //Slicer just control pivot table1.
    ISlicerCache cache = workbook.SlicerCaches.Add(pivottable1, "Product");
    ISlicer slicer1 = cache.Slicers.Add(workbook.Worksheets["Sheet1"], "p1", "Product", 20, 20, 100, 200);

    Refer to the following example code to add slicer in a multi pivot table.

    C#
    Copy Code
    ISlicerCache cache = workbook.SlicerCaches.Add(pivottable1, "Product");
    ISlicer slicer1 = cache.Slicers.Add(workbook.Worksheets["Sheet1"], "p1", "Product", 20, 20, 100, 200);
    cache.PivotTables.AddPivotTable(pivottable2);
