Hyperlink Cells in WPF Olap Grid

The OLAP grid allows hyperlinking of cells to retrieve a detailed information about a particular cell. The OLAP grid generates a separate event called “LinkClick” for the clicked hyperlink cell and the “LinkLabelClickEventHander” will return the clicked OlapGridCellInfo.

The hyperlink cell’s property can be applied to the following regions:

  • Column header
  • Row header
  • Value cell
  • Summary cell

It is possible to enable or disable the hyperlink options separately for all row header, column header, summary header, and value cells through the IsHyperlinkCell property. Refer to the following code sample.

public MainWindow()
{
    InitializeComponent();
            
    //OlapGrid Instantiation
    OlapGrid olapGrid1 = new OlapGrid();
    //OlapGrid added to an parent Grid present in the Main Window
    this.gridContainer.Children.Add(olapGrid1);
    //Connection string is passed to OlapDataManager as an argument
    OlapDataManager olapDataManager = new OlapDataManager("Enter a valid connection string");
    //Set current report for OlapDataManager.
    olapDataManager.SetCurrentReport(CreateOlapReport());
    //Specifying OlapDataManager to Grid.
    olapGrid1.OlapDataManager = olapDataManager;
        
    // To enable hyperlink for Column Header
    this.OlapGrid1.ColumnHeaderStyle.IsHyperlinkCell = true;
    // To enable hyperlink for Row Header
    this.OlapGrid1.RowHeaderStyle.IsHyperlinkCell = true;
    // To enable hyperlink for Value Cell
    this.OlapGrid1.ValueCellStyle.IsHyperlinkCell = true;
    // To enable hyperlink for Summary Column
    this.OlapGrid1.SummaryColumnStyle.IsHyperlinkCell = true;
    // To enable hyperlink for Summary Row
    this.OlapGrid1.SummaryRowStyle.IsHyperlinkCell = true;
        
    // Tag hyperlink cell click event
    this.OlapGrid1.LinkClick += new Syncfusion.Windows.Grid.Olap.LinkLabelClickEventHandler(OlapGrid1_LinkClick);
    olapGrid1.DataBind();      
}
private void OlapGrid1_LinkClick(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Grid.Olap.LinkLabelEventArgs e)
{
    string uniqueName = e.PivotCellDescriptor.UniqueName;   
}
Public Sub New()
    InitializeComponent()
       
    Dim OlapGrid1 As OlapGrid = New OlapGrid()
    ' OlapGrid added to an parent Grid present in the Main Window
    Me.gridContainer.Children.Add(olapGrid1);
    ' Instantiating OlapDataManager. 
    Dim olapDataManager As OlapDataManager = New OlapDataManager("Enter a valid connection string")
    ' Set current report for OlapDataManager.
    olapDataManager.SetCurrentReport(olapReport())
    ' Specifying OlapDataManager to Grid.
    ' To enable hyperlink for Column Header
    Me.OlapGrid1.ColumnHeaderStyle.IsHyperlinkCell = True
    ' To enable hyperlink for Row Header
    Me.OlapGrid1.RowHeaderStyle.IsHyperlinkCell = True
    ' To enable hyperlink for Value Cell
    Me.OlapGrid1.ValueCellsStyle.IsHyperlinkCell = True
    ' To enable hyperlink for Summary Column
    Me.OlapGrid1.SummaryColumnStyle.IsHyperlinkCell = True
    ' To enable hyperlink for Summary Row
    Me.OlapGrid1.SummaryRowStyle.IsHyperlinkCell = True
    
    ' Tag hyperlink cell click event
    Me.OlapGrid1.LinkClick += New Syncfusion.Windows.Grid.Olap.LinkLabelClickEventHandler(OlapGrid1_LinkClick);
    Me.OlapGrid1.DataBind()
End Sub
    
Private Sub OlapGrid1_LinkClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Grid.Olap.LinkLabelEventArgs)
    Dim uniqueName As String = e.PivotCellDescriptor.UniqueName
End Sub
