Features & Highlights

  • Save Time and Deliver Endless Views for Users

    Save Time and Deliver Endless Views for Users

    Deliver endless views to end users without writing or re-writing code. Typically when a user needs a new report they ask the developer to make one. With an OLAP solution they can build the report themselves and save it for future runs of the application. ComponentOne OLAP™ saves developers time while giving more power to the end user.

  • Simple, Code-free Data Analysis

    Simple, Code-free Data Analysis

    To create the simplest OLAP application, just create an empty 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 summarized views by dragging fields into the row, column, and value lists. The UI is modeled after Microsoft Excel® so it’s very easy for users to understand.

  • OLAP Charting

    OLAP Charting

    In addition to a pivot grid, ComponentOne OLAP™ includes charting for every view of the same aggregated data. The charts support six different chart types (Bar, Column, Area, Line, Scatter and Pie), tooltips, stacking, palettes and grouping (totals). For large views, an axis scrollbar is automatically enabled so the chart remains readable.

  • Print a Report and Persist Views

    Print a Report and Persist Views

    The real power and usefulness with ComponentOne OLAP™ is the ability to easily save and persist views. Configure your application to allow the user to save common views for future analysis. The pivot table information can also be exported to CSV, Html and Txt formats. Users can also print the pivot grid and chart together in a single report.

Dynamic Views

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. Dynamic Views

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. Subtotals and Grand Totals

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. Multiple Value Fields

Conditional Formatting

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%. Conditional Formatting

OLAP Charting

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. OLAP Charting

Print Reports

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. Print Reports


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. Filtering

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. Totals and Aggregates

Data Formatting

Format the value field in the Field Settings dialog. Select from decimal, currency, and percentage formats; or create custom format strings. Data Formatting

View Underlying Records

You can see the underlying records behind each aggregated value in the OLAP grid by double-clicking any cell. View Underlying Records

Undo/Redo History Support

As you make changes to the OLAP view you can undo and redo steps. Undo/Redo History Support

Save/Load Views

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. Save/Load Views

Customizable User Interface

OLAP / Pivot 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.
