Dynamic PivotTable on Web Portal

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hello guys!   I have been searching around the best way to publish my ssas cube and until now i thought that the sharepoint with the performance point and excel services would be the solution.   But today I found a microsoft document that describes the supported and unsupported features of excel services. In this document one of my needs was related to unsupported features of excel services.   The features I need are these: "The Detail Group and Show Detail options (also called drill-through) for OLAP data, member search, Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services actions, or using the field list to add, rearrange, or remove fields."   Link to Microsoft Document.     I would like to know if this avaible in a newer version or if there is another application that I an use to integrate with the ssas cube to provide a dynamic web pivot table.   Thank You!

Adding Dynamic Rows in ASP.NET GridView Control with TextBoxes and with Delete functionality

In my previous examples, I have demonstrated on how to add dynamic rows in GridView control with TextBoxes and how to save the values into the database. Now, seems that most of the developers are asking if how to add a delete functionality with it. So in this example, I'm going to show on how to delete a certain row in the dynamic GridView with TextBoxes.

Dynamic Data Templates in GridView ASP.NET 3.5

At a high level, Dynamic Data Templates can be seen as a system to very quickly build up a User Interface linked with the relevant data model, immediately enabling you to perform CRUD operations (Create, Read, Update, Delete) on the database using the specified data source. They provide a powerful method for building up these kinds of applications, and I'm going to focus on an overview of what Dynamic Data Templates actually are, and a few ways of customizing them to suit industry needs.

ASP.NET 4.0 Dynamic Data and Many to Many Entity Framework Entities

I did not play much with Dynamic Data controls in VS2008 and just made a cool discovery in VS2010 Beta 2. This may not even be new, but as I'm sitting 30,000+ feet over the Atlantic ocean, I don't have access to VS2008 at the moment to check.

Dynamic Systems Development Model (DSDM) Methodology

The Dynamic Systems Development Model was developed in the U.K. in the mid-1990s. It is the evolution of rapid application development (RAD) practices. DSDM boasts the best-supported training and documentation of any of the agile software development techniques, at least in Europe. DSDM favors the philosophy that nothing is built perfectly the first time and looks to software development as an exploratory endeavor.

Adding Dynamic Rows in GridView with TextBoxes

What is the difference between "dynamic" and "object" keywords?

Let's take a quick look at the object keyword first. I'm not going to talk a lot about it because it's been around since C# 1.0. This keyword is nothing more than a shortcut for System.Object, which is the root type in the C# class hierarchy. (However, as Eric Lippert pointed out in his blog post, not everything in C# derives from object.) This is a powerful mechanism, since you can assign almost any value to instances of this type.

Dynamic in C# 4.0: Introducing the ExpandoObject

You have probably already heard about the new dynamic feature in C# 4.0 and how it is used to support COM interop. If you haven't, I strongly recommend reading the following MSDN articles: Using Type dynamic and How to: Access Office Interop Objects by Using Visual C# 2010 Features.



Dear gentlemen and ladies of the Microsoft Dynamic Data Team,

Mr. Steve Naughton says (and I hope so) that there might be chances that you read the posts published in this forum: I really hope so.

If that were the case then I am formally requesting to you in providing a "real answer" to my question:

I want to customize a dynamic data page (the details one) so I can have access to the data it has been already gathered from the end user UI (details.aspx) and use it to pass this same data to the following controls/pages that I am going to display next time to the end user.

For instance:

I have a screen with different types of data in it: texts, numbers, dates, check boxes, radio buttons and dropdownlists that has been filled with data by the end user. I want now to reset all fields exept the dropdownlist of which I'd like to keep the previously chosen values(the very same thing you do between dropdownlist of List.aspx ad Details.aspx). Even with FoxPro I could do that because data and controls were available there. It was as simple as setting carrying on to true.

Dynamic page customization in WebForms



I am developing an ASP.NET Webforms application for job advertisements. The application is hosted on my own server and enables registrated users to publish job advertisements with the possibility to submit job applications directly from web. The application essentially consists of two parts: job advertisements and job applications sub-apps. 

The job advertisement application uses RESTful approach, implemented as ASP.NET routing and makes no use of different state variables (like viewstate). I provide custom layout of job advertisement webpage for every client using XML serialization of my internal JobOffer class and using XML ASP.NET control with custom XSLT transformation sheet plus CSS to render the custom design. It is all fine and works perfectly.

The second (job applications) part provides users with a custom webform, which is partically dependent upon the original advertisement (regarding the minimal education level, eligible citizenship or work permissions, licences etc.) and can be tweacked using custom CSS. There is, however, no possibility for custom layout of the elements on this page, which provides a multi-tabbed navigation for different parts of job application. Hence the question 1 (see below).

The application is not ready yet, but I intend to keep it hosted on my own server and provide just some ki

Need help regarding C# / AJAX Dynamic Controls creation


radiobuttons is assigned before page init.. 

public partial class Default : System.Web.UI.Page
//Assign values as a specific Dynamic WebControl Creation.
List<RadioButton> radioButtons = new List<RadioButton>();
List<CheckBox> checkBoxes = new List<CheckBox>();

Then I created a class that would dynamically create a table containing the available flights depending on session.. (See CallPageLoad())

The placeholder and button is inside the UpdatePanel...

on the button inside the update panel, (btnSelect)

i have this code which works... 

protected void btnSelect_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

Label1.Text = Convert.ToString(radioButtons.Count);

It detects the number of radiobuttons that were dynamically created...

But when I use the following code inside the BtnSelectClick event...

//PLS HELP.......
foreach (RadioButton button in radioButtons)
if (button.Checked == true)
Label1.Text = "You select... " + button;



It does not work even though t

Problem with Dynamic Button


Hi friends,

I am trying to make a page inspired from http://login.qlikview.com/help.aspx

here I have made a dropdownlist and on clicking I am able to dynamically add the textboxes and radio buttons using placeholders. My problem is I am not able to use a dynamic number of submit buttons. In the page (link above) I need to make the submit button available for two choices and invisible for one.  But the option dynamicbutton is not available alike dynamicTextboxes etc. What could I do? Is there any other way I could figure out to implement this.

Thanking you in advance,


How to check for null/empty strings on dynamic objects?


What is the proper way to check for null or empty strings on dynamic objects? This is the only solution I've found so far:

if (admin.PasswordHash.GetType() == typeof(DBNull) || admin.PasswordHash == string.Empty)

If the field is null, the object returned is DBNull.Value, but if the field is empty string, it's return as a System.String object. This makes it impossible to do regular "admin.PasswordHash == DBNull.Value" check, as that will fail whenever the field has been set to empty string. Is my example the right (and only) way to go?

Routing in dynamic data applications


Im using ASP.Net 4. I tried to modified the code according to following video tutorial. http://www.asp.net/aspnet-in-net-35-sp1/videos/how-to-enable-table-specific-routing-in-dynamic-data-applications

But Product page directs only to ListDetails.aspx page.

This is my code :

<%@ Application Language="C#" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.Routing" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.DynamicData" %>

<script RunAt="server">
    private static MetaModel s_defaultModel = new MetaModel();
    public static MetaModel DefaultModel {
        get {
            return s_defaultModel;

    public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes) {

        DefaultModel.RegisterContext(typeof(NorthwindDataContext), new ContextConfiguration() { ScaffoldAllTables = true });


About Dynamic Data in Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4



Does anybody here have any pointers to screencasts, demos, webcasts for the latest enhancements in Dynamic Data as listed in above link? I'm repeating them here for ready reference :


  • EnableDynamicData method which enables Dynamic Data features in existing ASP.NET applications and DataSource controls
  • A new QueryExtender control, contained in the sample projects to simplify common data filtering operations. It supports a rich ASP.NET declarative query syntax that makes it easy to do things like search data for text or have filters based on ranges
  • A new Dynamic Data filter model that enables the developers to apply templates to pages just like field templates (including user defined filters)
  • New field templates of Email, URL and Enum columns
  • Support for inheritance in Entity Framework and Linq to SQL
  • Support for many to many relationships in Entity Framework
  • New Entity Templates which allow fine control over how an object is displayed and edited
  • DynamicHyperLink control for building links to tables and actions
  • Declarative support for D

How to sell Dynamic Data to the bosses


I have a project which has gone from Excel report to a SharePoint Custom List and now they have tried to make it an application growing legs with additional list hinging off it and no real way to clean up data from one when it deleted from another etc..(unless we add handlers etc which we don't want to do).

It was envisiaged as a simple one page list to generate some reports off of but it more a data driven application they want now.

I am looking into a way after stating this to my boss and am intrested in the quickest most flexible way to achieve this and to sell it to him.

I am more a .net person but also know plsql and most of the team I work with are Oracle specialists.

We currently have at are disposile .net, php and oracle products (portal, plsql, forms and oracle application express.)

We are at a transition stage trying to move away from Oracle Forms and I believe that .net is a better fit that php for production and readability of code.

So I am considering placing Dynamic data on the table for this project as it all data driven with data being inputed and manipulated and then reports being generated (either via code or we could hitch in a reporting tool like mssql or discover.)  The main issue will be the data will be in Oracle so if Dynamic data can handle this then it be perfect as

Dynamic Data, Domain datasource, Poco and lookups


Mr. Edward,

Excuse my question but: it is necessary to involve in our projects something more than just Dynamic Data or should we make use of all other features available in VS2010 (which will make assume taht they had been left out of the Dynamic Data framework) like: wef, poco, azure, wcf, cloud, mvc, silverllight, ajax, odata, agile, workflow, etc.?

Sorry my ignorance, I'm just transcribing names as they come to my mind and of which I don't know anything about
