Group Header and Footer templates should expose aggregates for all the fields

Hello,

Do you have any sample for custom group Header template.

 

e..g. To  calculate the value of the column based on the other fields.

---

ADMIN EDIT

---

Once aggregates for all fields are exposed, we will need to provide an option to align them with the corresponding columns. This can be achieved through a GroupHeaderColumnTemplate which is targeted in a separate request.

Hi all,

The current request targets two aspects and while they might be connected, we've discussed and concluded that it will be better to have them as separate threads for easier tracking:

  • Exposing aggregates for all the fields in Group Header and Footer templates - this will be covered by the current thread

  • Align the content (aggregates) of the Group Header with the columns - this will be covered by a separate request for GroupHeaderColumnTemplate. You may additionally vote for it and follow it to receive status updates via email.

Hello,

When this feature becomes implemented there will be documentation and examples on handling it. Right now, I cannot offer a very good example. Perhaps something similar to this can be used to hack elements into alignment, but I recommend you don't try it in your case as I remember your recent tickets and what you are trying to achieve with the grid, and it won't work for you.

Hi Marin, yes we want to see the totals per column in the footer show up in the group row header. The advantage is that you can see the totals without having to expand the group row. User will expand the group row only if he wants to see the individual values which sum up to the total. We can create our own header template, but not sure how to align the values per column. Any samples or suggestions on how this can be implemented? Thanks.

Thanks, Rob, now I see - basically, you need the same ability like in the grand total footers, but also in the group templates. I've tweaked the title of this request because I find them related and I think everyone looking for one might benefit from the other too.

Thanks Marin,

My use is that I have a grid with Sales, Costs and Margin columns, with margin calculated from the first two. I'd like the group to calculate margin also, but the correct value is not able to be calculated from the Margin column alone.

Hi Rob,

The "grand totals" footer already exposes all aggregates, you can see how to get them here: https://docs.telerik.com/blazor-ui/components/grid/templates/column-footer.

The "group footer" is already specific for its column and lets you align the values for aggregating that particular column to its own column: https://docs.telerik.com/blazor-ui/components/grid/templates/column-group-footer.

Am I missing something from the situation you have, because it seems to me like this is already possible for the footers?

Hello,

I updated the title and moved this idea to our Feedback Portal so the community can weigh in on whether they want such a feature. You can click the Follow button on the following page to get notifications for status updates: https://feedback.telerik.com/blazor/1456063-group-header-templates-should-expose-aggregates-for-all-the-fields-and-allow-you-to-align-them-with-the-columns. At the moment, the group headers only provide the aggregates for their own field, and they are not tied to columns.

Hello Marin, thanks for quick reply. I was looking for custom aggregate function...attached image.

 

Does Telerik Blazor grid support custom aggregate functions with groupings?

Hi,

You can find examples of defining aggregates for the fields you want and using them in the group header in the following resources:

What's important is that a group is defined by the field it groups by, so it can only show aggregates for that particular field. The group header knows only about its particular field, the footers of individual columns can show data for the respective column. If you have the desired data elsewhere, you can render it in the header template like in any other render fragment.
