Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview

Contains a read-only, on-demand collection of Dimension objects contained in a CubeDef.

Namespace:   Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient
Assembly:  Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient (in Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient.dll)

public sealed class DimensionCollection : ICollection, IEnumerable

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyCount

Gets the number of Dimension objects in the collection.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyIsSynchronized

Gets a value indicating whether access to the collection is synchronized (thread safe).

System_CAPS_pubpropertyItem[Int32]

Gets the Dimension from the collection by its index. In C#, this property is the indexer for the DimensionCollection class.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyItem[String]

Gets the Dimensionfrom the collection by its name. In C#, this property is the indexer for the DimensionCollection class.

System_CAPS_pubpropertySyncRoot

Gets an object that can be used to synchronize access to the collection.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodCopyTo(Dimension[], Int32)

Copies the elements of the collection to the specified array.

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodFind(String)

Gets the Dimension from the collection by its name.

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetEnumerator()

Gets an Enumerator for iterating through the collection.

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

(Inherited from Object.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethodICollection.CopyTo(Array, Int32)

Copies the elements of the DimensionCollection to an array, starting at a particular array index.

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethodIEnumerable.GetEnumerator()

Gets an enumerator for iterating through the DimensionCollection.

The following subroutine, given a CubeDef, iterates through the DimensionCollection collection and displays information about each dimension:

Public Sub ListDimensionCollection(ByRef CubeToCheck As CubeDef)

    ' Check the parameter before performing actions on it.
    If CubeToCheck Is Nothing Then
        Throw New System.ArgumentNullException("CubeToCheck")
    Else
        ' Iterate through the Dimensions collection of the
        ' CubeDef object.

        Try
            Dim dimToCheck As Dimension

            Debug.WriteLine("Found " & CubeToCheck.Dimensions.Count & _
                " dimensions in cube:")

            For Each dimToCheck In CubeToCheck.Dimensions
                Debug.WriteLine("Dimension:  " & dimToCheck.Name)
                Debug.WriteLine("  Caption:        " & _
                    dimToCheck.Caption)
                Debug.WriteLine("  Description:    " & _
                    dimToCheck.Description)
                Debug.WriteLine("  UniqueName:     " & _
                    dimToCheck.UniqueName)
                Debug.WriteLine("  The dimension " & _
                    IIf(dimToCheck.WriteEnabled = True, "is", "is not") & _
                    " write-enabled.")
            Next
        Catch ex As AdomdConnectionException
            ' The connection could not be opened or was disconnected.
            ' This error can occur at any time, if the provider is 
            ' disconnected from the server.
            Debug.WriteLine(ex)
            Throw ex
        Catch ex As AdomdErrorResponseException
            ' A response is received from a provider which indicates an error.
            Debug.WriteLine(ex)
            Throw ex
        Catch ex As AdomdUnknownResponseException
            ' A response has been returned from the provider that 
            ' was not understood.
            Debug.WriteLine(ex)
            Throw ex
        Catch ex As AdomdCacheExpiredException
            ' A cached version of an ADOMD.NET object is no longer valid.
            ' This error is typically raised when reviewing metadata.
            Debug.WriteLine(ex)
            Throw ex
        Catch ex As AdomdException
            ' Any other error raised by ADOMD.NET.
            Debug.WriteLine(ex)
            Throw ex
        Catch ex As Exception
            ' Any other error.
            Debug.WriteLine(ex)
