Getting started

Creating a simple application with pivot client and OLAP data sources (client mode)

This section covers the information required to populate a simple pivot client with OLAP data completely on the client-side.

Scripts and CSS references

Create an HTML page and add scripts and style sheets that are required to render a pivot client widget that are listed below:

  1. ej.web.all.min.css
  2. jQuery-3.0.0.min.js
  3. ej.web.all.min.js
  4. jsrender.min.js

Initialize pivot client

Place a div tag in the HTML page which acts as a container for the pivot client widget. Then, initialize the widget using the “ejPivotClient” method.

  • html
  • <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
    
        <title>PivotClient - Getting Started</title>
    
        <link href="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/18.3.0.35/js/web/flat-azure/ej.web.all.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
        <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/js/assets/external/jquery-3.0.0.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
        <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/18.3.0.35/js/web/ej.web.all.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
        <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/js/assets/external/jsrender.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    
    </head>
    <body>
        <!--Create a tag which acts as a container for ejPivotClient widget.-->
        <div id="PivotClient1"></div>
    
        <script type="text/javascript">
            $(function () {
                //Set properties and initialize ejPivotClient widget.
                $("#PivotClient1").ejPivotClient();
            });
        </script>
    </body>
    </html>

    Populate pivot client with data source

    Initialize the OLAP data source for pivot client widget as shown below:

  • html
  • <html>
    
    //……
    
    <body>
        <div id="PivotClient1"></div>
    
        <script type="text/javascript">
            $(function() {
                $("#PivotClient1").ejPivotClient({
                    dataSource: {
                        data: "https://bi.syncfusion.com/olap/msmdpump.dll",
                        catalog: "Adventure Works DW 2008 SE",
                        cube: "Adventure Works",
                        rows: [{
                            fieldName: "[Date].[Fiscal]"
                        }],
                        columns: [{
                            fieldName: "[Customer].[Customer Geography]"
                        }],
                        values: [{
                            measures: [{
                                fieldName: "[Measures].[Internet Sales Amount]",
                            }],
                            axis: "columns"
                        }]
                    }
                });
            });
        </script>
    </body>
    </html>

    Now, the pivot client is rendered with the pivot chart, and the pivot grid is rendered with “Customer Geography” in the column, “Fiscal” in the row, and “Internet Sales Amount” measure in the value section.

    Creating a simple application with pivot client and OLAP data source (server mode)

    This section covers the information required to create a simple pivot client bound to OLAP data source from server-side.

    NOTE

    This section is illustrated by creating a simple web application through Visual Studio IDE, since the pivot client bound with the data from server-side requires .NET dependency. The web application contains an HTML page and a service that will transfer the data to server-side, process it, and return it client-side for control re-rendering. The service utilized for communication can be either WCF or WebAPI based on user requirement. Both are illustrated here for user convenience.

    Project initialization

    Create a new ASP.NET Empty Web Application by using Visual Studio IDE and name the project “PivotClientDemo.”

    Next, add an HTML page. To add an HTML page in your web application, right-click the project in the solution explorer and select Add > New Item. In the Add New Item window, select HTML Page and name it “GettingStarted.html,” and then click Add.

    Now, set “GettingStarted.html” as the start-up page by right-click the “GettingStarted.html” page and select “Set As Start Page”.

    Scripts and CSS initialization

    The scripts and style sheets that are required to render a pivot client widget in the HTML page are listed below:

    1. ej.web.all.min.css
    2. jQuery-3.0.0.min.js
    3. ej.web.all.min.js
    4. jsrender.min.js

    The scripts and style sheets listed above can be found in any of the following locations:

    Local disk: Click here to know more about script and style sheets installed in the local machine.

    CDN link: Click here to know more about script and style sheets available in online.

    NuGet package: Click here to know more about script and style sheets available in the NuGet package.

    Control initialization

    To initialize a pivot client widget, first you should define a div tag with an appropriate id attribute which acts as a container for the pivot client widget. Then, you can initialize the widget using the ejPivotClient method.

  • html
  • <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    
    <head>
        <title>PivotClient - Getting Started</title>
        <link href="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/18.3.0.35/js/web/flat-azure/ej.web.all.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
        <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/js/assets/external/jquery-3.0.0.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
        <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/18.3.0.35/js/web/ej.web.all.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
        <script src="http://cdn.syncfusion.com/js/assets/external/jsrender.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    </head>
    
    <body>
        <div>
            <!--Creating a div tag, that acts as a container for ejPivotClient widget.-->
            <div id="PivotClient1"></div>
    
            <script type="text/javascript">
                //Setting property and initializing ejPivotClient widget.
                $(function()
                {
                    $("#PivotClient1").ejPivotClient(
                    {
                        url: "/Olap",title: "OLAP Browser"
                    });
                });
            </script>
        </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    The url property in the pivot client widget points to the service endpoint, where the data is processed and fetched in the form of JSON. The services used for the pivot client widget as endpoint are WCF and WebAPI.

    The title property is used to set the title for the pivot client widget.

    NOTE

    The above “GettingStarted.html” page contains WebAPI url, which is “/Olap”. If you are using the WCF service, then the url will look like “/OlapService.svc”.

    WebAPI

    Adding a WebAPI controller

    To add a WebAPI controller in your existing web application, right-click the project in the solution explorer and select Add > New Item. In the Add New Item window, select WebAPI Controller Class and name it “OlapController.cs”, and then click Add.

    The WebAPI controller is added to your application with the following file. The utilization of this file will be explained in the following sections:

    • OlapController.cs

    NOTE

    While adding the WebAPI controller class, add the mandatory suffix “Controller”. For example, in the demo, the controller is named “OlapController”.

    Next, remove all the existing methods such as “Get”, “Post”, “Put”, and “Delete” that are present in the OlapController.cs file.

  • c#
  • namespace PivotClientDemo
    {
        public class OlapController: ApiController
        {
    
        }
    }

    List of dependency libraries

    Next, add the following dependency libraries to the web application. You can find these libraries in the GAC (Global Assembly Cache) in the machine.

    To add them to the web application, right-click References in the solution explorer and select Add Reference. In the Reference Manager dialog, under Assemblies > Extension, the following Syncfusion libraries are found.

    NOTE

    If you have installed any version of SQL Server Analysis Service (SSAS) or Microsoft ADOMD.NET utility, then the location of Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient library is [system drive:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft.NET\ADOMD.NET]. If you have installed any version of Essential Studio, then the location of Syncfusion libraries is [system drive:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\18.3.0.35\Assemblies].

    • Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient
    • Syncfusion.Compression.Base
    • Syncfusion.Linq.Base
    • Syncfusion.Olap.Base
    • Syncfusion.PivotAnalysis.Base
    • System.Data.SqlServerCe (Version: 4.0.0.0)
    • Syncfusion.XlsIO.Base
    • Syncfusion.Pdf.Base
    • Syncfusion.DocIO.Base
    • Syncfusion.EJ
    • Syncfusion.EJ.Export
    • Syncfusion.EJ.Pivot

    List of namespaces

    The following is the list of namespaces to be added on top of the main class in the OlapController.cs file:

  • c#
  • using Syncfusion.JavaScript;
    using Syncfusion.Olap.Manager;
    using Syncfusion.Olap.Reports;
    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Configuration;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Data.SqlServerCe;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.Http;
    using System.Web.Script.Serialization;
    using OLAPUTILS = Syncfusion.JavaScript.Olap;
    
    namespace PivotClientDemo
    {
        public class OlapController: ApiController
        {
    
        }
    }

    Data source initialization

    The connection string to connect OLAP cube, the pivot client, and JavaScriptSerializer instances are created immediately in the main class of OlapController.cs file. Also, the database connection for saving and loading the reports is provided appropriately.

  • c#
  • namespace PivotClientDemo
    {
        public class OlapController: ApiController
        {
            PivotClient pivotClientHelper = new PivotClient();
            PivotTreeMap treeMapHelper = new PivotTreeMap();
            PivotChart chartHelper = new PivotChart();
            JavaScriptSerializer serializer = new JavaScriptSerializer();
            string connectionString = "Data Source=https://bi.syncfusion.com/olap/msmdpump.dll; Initial Catalog=Adventure Works DW 2008 SE;";
            string conStringforDB = "";//Enter appropriate connection string to connect database for saving and loading operation of reports
            //Other codes
        }
    }

    Service methods in WebAPI controller

    You can define the service methods in the OlapController class. To do so, find the OlapController.cs file which was created while adding the WebAPI Controller class to your web application.

  • c#
  • namespace PivotClientDemo
    {
        public class OlapController: ApiController
        {
            PivotClient pivotClientHelper = new PivotClient();
            PivotTreeMap treeMapHelper = new PivotTreeMap();
            PivotChart chartHelper = new PivotChart();
            JavaScriptSerializer serializer = new JavaScriptSerializer();
            string connectionString = "Data Source=https://bi.syncfusion.com/olap/msmdpump.dll; Initial Catalog=Adventure Works DW 2008 SE;";
            string conStringforDB = "";//Enter appropriate connection string to connect database for saving and loading operation of reports

    Configure routing in global application class

    To add a Global.asax in your existing web application, right-click the project in the solution explorer and select Add > New Item. In the Add New Item window, select Global Application Class and name it “Global.asax”, and then click Add.
    After adding the Global.asax file, immediately add the namespace “using System.Web.Http;”, and then you can configure the routing as shown in the following code example:

  • c#
  • public class Global: System.Web.HttpApplication
    {
        protected void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            System.Web.Http.GlobalConfiguration.Configuration.Routes.MapHttpRoute(name: "DefaultApi", routeTemplate: "{controller}/{action}/{id}", defaults: new
            {
                id = RouteParameter.Optional
            });
            AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetData("SQLServerCompactEditionUnderWebHosting", true);
        }
    }

    The pivot client is rendered with the pivot chart and pivot grid showing customer count over a period of fiscal years.
