Category: PivotGrid
Type: Feature Request
Need a way to expand default row axes by passing in ‘expandRow’ or similar prop for PivotGrid component or to the usePivotLocalDataService hook.

Recently we came up with a workaround for expanding the defaultRowAxes by creating a string value (by concatenating previous tag value with ‘&’ + tag value + next tag along with expand: true property and so on). This approach is not ideal because we have a lot of data and we use the pivotProps values returned from ‘usePivotLocalDataService’ hook as sometimes we can have more than 5 nested tags in a row and we update our config based upon the return values from configuratorProps returned from the same hook (usePivotLocalDataService) so we can save the values in our database later.


We need a solution where we can pass in a prop (eg: expandRows) either to the usePivotLocalDataService hook or the PivotGrid component itself that will expand the rows by default whenever we click the “Apply” button in the Configurator component.


Telerik Dojo example: https://www.telerik.com/kendo-react-ui/components/pivotgrid/data-binding/local-binding/


In the above mentioned example and the screen recording attached (expand-defaultRowAxes.mov) you can see when we click apply -> defaultRowAxes are added but they are collapsed. So we need a solution where in we can pass a prop to the component / hook for expanding defaultRowAxes whenever we click on “Apply” button.

Hi, Katherine,

When a feature request is submitted in our feedback portal, it needs to become popular enough in order for us to start planning its implementation. We regularly monitor the submitted requests and the ones with the most votes are planned internally. 

Currently a solution besides the one that concatenates the previous tag value is not available for this scenario and adding such a prop via this request would prove beneficial.

I hope this helps.
