using DevExpress.DashboardCommon;
using DevExpress.DataAccess.Excel;

namespace Dashboard_GridHyperlinkColumn
    public partial class Form1 : DevExpress.XtraBars.Ribbon.RibbonForm
        public Form1()

            Dashboard dashboard = new Dashboard();

            DashboardExcelDataSource excelDataSource = new DashboardExcelDataSource("Excel Data Source");
            excelDataSource.FileName = @"..\..\Data\GDPByCountry.xlsx";
            excelDataSource.SourceOptions = new ExcelSourceOptions(new ExcelWorksheetSettings("Sheet1"));

            GridDashboardItem grid = new GridDashboardItem();
            grid.DataSource = excelDataSource;

            // Creates two hyperlink columns: the first column takes hyperlinks from the underlying data source while the second 
            // generates links based on the specified URI pattern and data source country names.
            GridHyperlinkColumn hyperlinkColumn1 = new GridHyperlinkColumn(new Dimension("Uri"), new Dimension("OfficialName"));
            GridHyperlinkColumn hyperlinkColumn2 = new GridHyperlinkColumn(new Dimension("Name"), new Dimension("OfficialName"));
            hyperlinkColumn2.UriPattern = "{0}";

            GridMeasureColumn gdpColumn = new GridMeasureColumn(new Measure("GDP"));
            grid.Columns.AddRange(hyperlinkColumn1, hyperlinkColumn2, gdpColumn);
