Calculate Column Value Based on Other Columns in Blazor DataGrid

23 Aug 20233 minutes to read

You can calculate the values for a datagrid column based on other column values by using the context parameter in the Template property of the GridColumn component. Inside the Template, you can access the column values using the implicit named parameter context and then calculate the values for the new column as required.

This is demonstrated in the following sample code where the value for FinalCost column is calculated based on the values of ManfCost and LabCost columns,

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Grids

<SfGrid DataSource="@Orders" AllowPaging="true">
    <GridPageSettings PageSize="8"></GridPageSettings>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.OrderID) HeaderText="Order ID" TextAlign="TextAlign.Center" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.CustomerID) HeaderText="Customer Name" TextAlign="TextAlign.Center" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.OrderDate) HeaderText=" Order Date" Format="d" Type=ColumnType.Date TextAlign="TextAlign.Center" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.ManfCost) HeaderText="Manufacturing Cost" Format="C2" TextAlign="TextAlign.Center" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.LabCost) HeaderText="Labor Cost" Format="C2" TextAlign="TextAlign.Center" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.FinalCost) HeaderText="Final price" Format="C2" TextAlign="TextAlign.Center" Width="120">
                    var value = (context as Order);
                    var finalAmount = value.ManfCost + value.LabCost;


    public List<Order> Orders { get; set; }

    protected override void OnInitialized()
        Orders = Enumerable.Range(1, 25).Select(x => new Order()
            OrderID = 1000 + x,
            CustomerID = (new string[] { "ALFKI", "ANANTR", "ANTON", "BLONP", "BOLID" })[new Random().Next(5)],
            ManfCost = 10 * x,
            LabCost = 3 * x,
            OrderDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-x),
    public class Order
        public int? OrderID { get; set; }
        public string CustomerID { get; set; }
        public DateTime? OrderDate { get; set; }
        public int? ManfCost { get; set; }
        public int? LabCost { get; set; }
        public double? FinalCost { get; set; }
