KPI in WPF Olap Grid

6 May 20213 minutes to read

KPI is a collection of calculations that are associated with a measure group in a cube that are used to evaluate business success. Typically, these calculations are a combination of multi-dimensional expressions (MDX) or calculated members. KPIs also have additional metadata that provides information about how grid applications should display the results of KPI calculations.

The following are the different types of indicators:

  • KPI goal
  • KPI status
  • KPI trend
  • KPI value
/// <summary>
/// OlapReport with KPI Elements
/// </summary>
/// <returns></returns>
private OlapReport LoadBasicKPI()
    OlapReport olapReport = new OlapReport();
    // Selecting the Cube
    olapReport.CurrentCubeName = "Adventure Works";
    KpiElements kpiElement = new KpiElements();
    // Specifying the KPI Element name and configuring its Indicators
    kpiElement.Elements.Add(new KpiElement
        Name = "Internet Revenue",
        ShowKPIGoal = true,
        ShowKPIStatus = true,
        ShowKPIValue = true,
        ShowKPITrend = true
    DimensionElement dimensionElementRow = new DimensionElement();
    // Specifying the Name for Row Dimension Element
    dimensionElementRow.Name = "Date";
    // Specifying the Level element
    dimensionElementRow.AddLevel("Fiscal", "Fiscal Year");
    // Adding Row Elements
    // Adding Column Elements
    return olapReport;
