Legacy Code Example

This section includes two samples; one sample using AMO to set up the action and another sample using ADOMD.NET client to retrieve the action from client code.

The following sample, which uses AMO, shows how to set up an action. This sample assumes that you are connected to the AMOAdventureWorks sample database and the cube passed as parameter is "Adventure Works".

Notice that the action target type in the AMO code is defined as Cells and the action is defined for all cells in measure group "Reseller Sales". In the ADOMD.NET code, the corresponding coordinate type is MDACTION_COORDINATE_CELL = 6, which is accompanied by the tuple ([Measures].[Reseller Order Quantity], [Product].[Category].&[3]) as the coordinate to find the action.

The code is written in C#.

private void CreateActions(Cube cube)
{
    #region Adding a drillthrough action
    //Create a Drillthrough action
    DrillThroughAction action = new DrillThroughAction("Reseller Details", "Drillthrough Action");

    //Define the Action
    action.Invocation = ActionInvocation.Interactive;
    action.Type = ActionType.DrillThrough;
    action.TargetType = ActionTargetType.Cells;
    action.Target = "MeasureGroupMeasures(\"Reseller Sales\")";
    action.Caption = "DrillThrough...";
    action.CaptionIsMdx = false;

    //Adding Measure columns
    MeasureBinding mb1 = new MeasureBinding();
    mb1.MeasureID = "Reseller Sales Amount";
    action.Columns.Add(mb1);
    
    MeasureBinding mb2 = new MeasureBinding();
    mb2.MeasureID = "Reseller Order Quantity";
    action.Columns.Add(mb2);

    MeasureBinding mb3 = new MeasureBinding();
    mb3.MeasureID = "Reseller Unit Price";
    action.Columns.Add(mb3);

    //Adding Dimension Columns
    CubeAttributeBinding cb1 = new CubeAttributeBinding();
    cb1.CubeID = cube.ID;
    cb1.CubeDimensionID = "Reseller";
    cb1.AttributeID = "Reseller";
    cb1.Type = AttributeBindingType.All;
    action.Columns.Add(cb1);

    CubeAttributeBinding cb2 = new CubeAttributeBinding();
    cb2.CubeID = cube.ID;
    cb2.CubeDimensionID = "Product";
    cb2.AttributeID = "Product Name";
    cb2.Type = AttributeBindingType.All;
    action.Columns.Add(cb2);

    //Add the defined action to the cube
    cube.Actions.Add(action);
    #endregion
}

The following sample, which uses the ADOMD.NET client, shows how to verify that the action sample is defined correctly.

The parameters were given as follows.

CATALOG_NAME=AMOAdventureworks

CUBE_NAME= Adventure Works

COORDINATE=([Measures].[Reseller Order Quantity], [Product].[Category].&[3])

COORDINATE_TYPE=6

Code is written in C#. ServerName is a System.Windows.Forms.TextBox object on a Form.

#region Using directives

{
    MDACTION_COORDINATE_CUBE = 1,
    MDACTION_COORDINATE_DIMENSION = 2,
    MDACTION_COORDINATE_LEVEL = 3,
    MDACTION_COORDINATE_MEMBER = 4,
    MDACTION_COORDINATE_SET = 5,
    MDACTION_COORDINATE_CELL = 6
}

...

private void readActionsUsingADOMDClient(String catalogName, String cubeName, String coordinate, COORDINATE_TYPE coordinateType)
{
    adoMdClient.AdomdRestrictionCollection restrictions = new adoMdClient.AdomdRestrictionCollection();

    restrictions.Add("CATALOG_NAME", catalogName);

    restrictions.Add("CUBE_NAME", cubeName);

    restrictions.Add("COORDINATE", coordinate);

    restrictions.Add("COORDINATE_TYPE", (int)coordinateType);
    foreach (adoMdClient.AdomdRestriction restriction in restrictions)
    {
Debug.WriteLine(restriction.Name + "=" + restriction.Value);
    }
    using (adoMdClient.AdomdConnection cnxAmoAdventureworks = new adoMdClient.AdomdConnection())
    {
if (serverName.Text.Length == 0)
{
    cnxAmoAdventureworks.ConnectionString = "Data Source=localhost;Catalog=AMOAdventureworks";
}
else
{
    cnxAmoAdventureworks.ConnectionString = "Data Source=" + serverName.Text + ";Catalog=AMOAdventureworks";
}
cnxAmoAdventureworks.Open();

DataTable actionsTable = cnxAmoAdventureworks.GetSchemaDataSet("MDSCHEMA_ACTIONS", restrictions).Tables[0];
Debug.WriteLine("Table [" + actionsTable.TableName + "] has " + actionsTable.Rows.Count.ToString() + " rows");
int j = 0;
foreach (DataRow actionRow in actionsTable.Rows)
{
    for (int i = 0; i < actionRow.ItemArray.Length; i++)
    {
Debug.WriteLine("[" + j.ToString().PadLeft(4) + "]\t" + actionsTable.Columns[i].ColumnName + ": " + actionRow.ItemArray[i].ToString());
    }
    j++;
}
    }

}

After running the code you will see the following results.
