Named sets

4 May 20174 minutes to read

Named sets is a multidimensional expression (MDX) that returns a set of dimension members, that can be created by combining the cube data, arithmetic operators, numbers, and functions.

Client mode

You can bind the named sets in the pivot tree map by setting it’s unique name in the FieldName property in the row or column axis and isNamedSets Boolean property to true.

  • JS
  • <!--Create a tag which acts as a container for PivotTreeMap--> 
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <ej:PivotTreeMap ID="PivotTreeMap1" runat="server" IsResponsive="true" ClientIDMode="Static">
            <DataSource Catalog="Adventure Works DW 2008 SE" Cube="Adventure Works" Data="">
                        <ej:Field FieldName="[Customer].[Customer Geography]"></ej:Field>
                        <ej:Field FieldName="[Core Product Group]" isNamedSets="true"></ej:Field>
                        <ej:Field Axis="Column">
                                <ej:MeasuresItems FieldName="[Measures].[Internet Sales Amount]" />
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"></asp:ScriptManager>

            <div>Measure(s) : </div><div>Row : </div><div>Column : </div><div>Value : </div>

    Server mode

    You can add the named sets to the pivot tree map by using the NamedSetElement class in the OlapReport.

  • C#
  • OlapReport olapReport = new OlapReport(); 
    olapReport.Name = "Customer Report"; 
    olapReport.CurrentCubeName = "Adventure Works"; 
    DimensionElement dimensionElementColumn = new DimensionElement(); 
    dimensionElementColumn.Name = "Customer"; 
    dimensionElementColumn.AddLevel("Customer Geography", "Country ");
    MeasureElements measureElementColumn = new MeasureElements(); 
    measureElementColumn.Elements.Add(new MeasureElement { 
    Name = "Internet Sales Amount" 
    NamedSetElement dimensionElementRow = new NamedSetElement(); 
    dimensionElementRow.Name = "Core Product Group";
