The built-in drill-down capability allows end-users to change the detail level of data displayed in dashboard items on the fly. To learn more about drill-down concepts common to all dashboard items, see the Drill-Down topic.

When drill-down is enabled, an end-user can click a tile to view its details.


When Master Filtering is enabled, an end-user can view the details by double-clicking a tile.


Drill-down requires that the Arguments section contains several dimensions, from the least detailed to the most detailed dimension.



In OLAP mode, you can perform drill-down for either a hierarchy data item or several dimension attributes.

To enable drill-down, click the Drill Down button in the Data Ribbon tab (or the DataShaping_Interactivity_DrillDown_Toolbar button if you are using the toolbar menu).


To return to the previous detail level (drill up), use the Drill Up (DrillDown_DrillUpArrow) button in the caption of the Treemap dashboard item, or the Drill Up command in the context menu.

In code, use the TreemapDashboardItem.InteractivityOptions property to access interactivity settings. This property returns the DashboardItemInteractivityOptions object.

To enable drill-down, set the DashboardItemInteractivityOptions.IsDrillDownEnabled property to true.


Grouping is not in effect when the drill-down is enabled.
