Namespace: DevExpress.DashboardCommon

Assembly: DevExpress.Dashboard.v21.1.Core.dll


public Dimension(
    string id,
    string dataMember,
    DateTimeGroupInterval dateTimeGroupInterval


Name Type Description
id String

A String that specifies the dimension identifier. This value is assigned to the DataItem.UniqueId property.

dataMember String

A String that identifies the data item to which this Dimension should be bound. This value is assigned to the DataItem.DataMember property.

dateTimeGroupInterval DateTimeGroupInterval

A DateTimeGroupInterval enumeration member that specifies the group interval for date-time values. This value is assigned to the Dimension.DateTimeGroupInterval property.


The Dimension identifier passed via the id parameter is used to refer to this dimension in dashboard item filter criteria specified via the DataDashboardItem.FilterString property.

The data member identifier passed via the dataMember parameter should consist of the data table name and the column name, dot separated. For instance, the Street Address column from the Customers table is identified as “Customers.Street Address”.

If a data source has been specified in code, particular data fields can be custom objects. In this instance, the identifier is a chain of property names, like “Customers.City.Population”.

Note that aliases specified in the Query Builder are not used in data member identifiers. Use actual column names instead.
