The `PivotCalculationGroup` class is a container for multiple `PivotCalculation` objects. Every pivot table has at least one pivot calculation group and this is sufficient for all regular pivot tables. Additional calculation groups are typically only created for irregular/custom pivot tables. See the "Irregular Layout" vignette for an example.

Format

R6Class object.

Active bindings

calculationGroupName

The name of the calculation group.

defaultCalculationName

The name of the default calculation in this calculation group.

count

The number of calculations in this calculation group.

calculations

A list containing the calculations in this group.

visibleCount

The number of visible calculations in this calculation group.

visibleCalculations

A list containing the visible calculations in this group.

Methods

Public methods


Method new()

Create a new `PivotCalculationGroup` object.

Usage

PivotCalculationGroup$new(parentPivot, calculationGroupName = NULL)

Arguments

parentPivot

The pivot table that this `PivotCalculationGroup` instance belongs to.

calculationGroupName

Calculation group unique name. Recommendation: Do not have spaces in this name.

Returns

A new `PivotCalculationGroup` object.


Method isExistingCalculation()

Check whether a calculation already exists in this calculation group.

Usage

PivotCalculationGroup$isExistingCalculation(calculationName = NULL)

Arguments

calculationName

group unique name.

Returns

`TRUE` if a calculation with the specified name exists in this calculation group object, `FALSE` otherwise.


Method item()

Retrieve a calculation by index.

Usage

PivotCalculationGroup$item(index)

Arguments

index

An integer specifying the calculation to retrieve.

Returns

The calculation that exists at the specified index.


Method getCalculation()

Retrieve a calculation by name.

Usage

PivotCalculationGroup$getCalculation(calculationName = NULL)

Arguments

calculationName

The name of the calculation to retrieve.

Returns

The calculation with the specified name.


Method defineCalculation()

Create a new `PivotCalculation` object.

Usage

PivotCalculationGroup$defineCalculation(
  calculationName = NULL,
  caption = NULL,
  visible = TRUE,
  displayOrder = NULL,
  filters = NULL,
  format = NULL,
  fmtFuncArgs = NULL,
  dataName = NULL,
  type = "summary",
  valueName = NULL,
  summariseExpression = NULL,
  calculationExpression = NULL,
  calculationFunction = NULL,
  calcFuncArgs = NULL,
  basedOn = NULL,
  noDataValue = NULL,
  noDataCaption = NULL,
  headingBaseStyleName = NULL,
  headingStyleDeclarations = NULL,
  cellBaseStyleName = NULL,
  cellStyleDeclarations = NULL
)

Arguments

calculationName

Calculation unique name.

caption

Calculation display name

visible

`TRUE` to show the calculation in the pivot table or `FALSE` to hide it. Hidden calculations are typically used as base values for other calculations.

displayOrder

The order the calculations are displayed in the pivot table.

filters

Any additional data filters specific to this calculation. This can be a `PivotFilters` object that further restricts the data for the calculation or a list of individual `PivotFilter` objects that provide more flexibility (and/or/replace). See the Calculations vignette for details.

format

A character, list or custom function to format the calculation result.

fmtFuncArgs

A list that specifies any additional arguments to pass to a custom format function.

dataName

Specifies which data frame in the pivot table is used for this calculation (as specified in `pt$addData()`).

type

The calculation type: "summary", "calculation", "function" or "value".

valueName

For type="value", the name of the column containing the value to display in the pivot table.

summariseExpression

For type="summary", either the dplyr expression to use with dplyr::summarise() or a data.table calculation expression.

calculationExpression

For type="calculation", an expression to combine aggregate values.

calculationFunction

For type="function", a reference to a custom R function that will carry out the calculation.

calcFuncArgs

For type="function", a list that specifies additional arguments to pass to calculationFunction.

basedOn

A character vector specifying the names of one or more calculations that this calculation depends on.

noDataValue

An integer or numeric value specifying the value to use if no data exists for a particular cell.

noDataCaption

A character value that will be displayed by the pivot table if no data exists for a particular cell.

headingBaseStyleName

The name of a style defined in the pivot table to use as the base styling for the data group heading.

headingStyleDeclarations

A list of CSS style declarations (e.g. `list("font-weight"="bold")`) to override the base style.

cellBaseStyleName

The name of a style defined in the pivot table to use as the base styling for the cells related to this calculation.

cellStyleDeclarations

A list of CSS style declarations (e.g. `list("font-weight"="bold")`) to override the base style.

Returns

A new `PivotCalculation` object.


Method asList()

Return the contents of this object as a list for debugging.

Usage

PivotCalculationGroup$asList()

Returns

A list of various object properties.


Method asJSON()

Return the contents of this object as JSON for debugging.

Usage

PivotCalculationGroup$asJSON()

Returns

A JSON representation of various object properties.


Method asString()

Return a representation of this object as a character value.

Usage

PivotCalculationGroup$asString(seperator = ", ")

Arguments

seperator

A character value used when concatenating the text representations of different calculations.

Returns

A character summary of various object properties.


Method clone()

The objects of this class are cloneable with this method.

Usage

PivotCalculationGroup$clone(deep = FALSE)

Arguments

deep

Whether to make a deep clone.

Examples

# This class should only be created by the pivot table. # It is not intended to be created outside of the pivot table.
