Features and Highlights
Code-free Data Analysis
To create the simplest OLAP application, just create an empty Silverlight application, drop the C1OlapPage control on the page, and connect to a data source. It’s that easy. Run your application and go.
Dynamically create data views by dragging fields into the row, column and value lists. This will give you a summary of your data. You can also summarize your data by modifying the filters. The UI is similar to Microsoft Excel.
Subtotals and Grand Totals
The OLAP Grid automatically calculates grand totals for each slice of your data. If you measure multiple dimensions the OLAP Grid can also calculate subtotals with collapsible headers.
Multiple Value Fields
You may add as many value fields to a view as you want. This enables users to aggregate totals for multiple measures from the data set. For example, create a view that compares both total revenue and cost side-by-side.
Simple properties make it easy to apply conditional formatting to the C1OlapGrid. Conditional format thresholds may be specified as absolute values or as percentages. Make certain values stand out to draw attention. For example, apply a unique style for values in the top 10% and another style for values in the bottom 10%.
The C1OlapChart control is used to display OLAP charts. It supports five different chart types (Bar, Column, Area, Line and Scatter), automatic tooltips, stacking and palette selection.
Directly print the C1OlapGrid and C1OlapChart together in a single report. Users can customize scaling, page margins, headers and footers, and insert time stamps, page counts and a title for the report.
To narrow down the data pool, use the filter feature. You can filter on multiple fields. Just right-click on the field you would like to filter and select Field Settings. From the Field Settings dialog box, you can create your custom text filter. No coding required. The filter settings get saved with the OLAP view so they are there the next time you load the view.
Totals and Aggregates
Choose from many different aggregations for the totals (Value field). Choose from Sum, Count, Average, Maximum, Minimum, First, Last, Variance, Standard Deviation, and Variance Population.
Format the value field in the Field Settings dialog. Select from decimal, currency, and percentage formats; or create custom format strings.
View Underlying Records
You can see the underlying records behind each aggregated value in the OLAP grid by double-clicking any cell.
Undo/Redo History Support
As you make changes to the OLAP view you can undo and redo steps.
ReadXml and WriteXml methods allow you to persist views to files and streams. These methods make it very easy to implement predefined views and expose them in a menu so your end-user can select them.
Customizable User Interface
OLAP for Silverlight exposes most of the components it contains, which makes customization straightforward. You can add, remove or change the elements from the Menu, the TabControl, and you can also add other elements to the page in addition to the C1OlapPanel, C1OlapGrid and C1OlapChart.
