Property Value

Type Default Description


A DateTimeGroupInterval enumeration member that specifies how to group date-time values.


Use the DateTimeGroupInterval property to specify how to group date-time values contained in this Dimension. For instance, they can be grouped by years, months, quarters, days of the week, hours, days of the year, etc.

You can also use the DataItem.DateTimeFormat property to specify how to format these values depending on their group interval.

If the Dimension does not contain date-time data, the DateTimeGroupInterval property is not in effect.


You cannot use Grouping feature in OLAP mode.


The following code snippet shows how to create the date-time and string dimensions with the specified group intervals.

Dimension orderDateDimension = new Dimension("Order Date", DateTimeGroupInterval.MonthYear);
Dimension categoryDimension = new Dimension("CategoryName", TextGroupInterval.Alphabetical);
