How to filter level elements from slicer axis through code behind?

This KB illustrates that how to filter level elements from slicer axis through code behind.


Follow the given steps to exclude the level elements with OLAP server mode in the slicer axis through code behind.

Step 1:

Create a project for pivot client through the following documentation link.

JavaScript- https://help.syncfusion.com/js/pivotclient/olap-getting-started#creating-a-simple-application-with-pivot-client-and-olap-data-source-server-mode

ASP- https://help.syncfusion.com/aspnet/pivotclient/olap-getting-started#creating-a-simple-application-pivot-client-and-olap-data-sources-server-mode

MVC- https://help.syncfusion.com/aspnetmvc/pivotclient/olap-getting-started#creating-a-simple-application-with-pivotclient-and-olap-datasource-server-mode

Step 2:

Add the following namespace to the pivot client Web API controller.

using Syncfusion.Olap.DataProvider;


Step 3:

In the pivot client Web API controller, you can use the “excludeElements” method to filter the level elements from the slicer axis.

public OlapDataManager excludeElements(OlapDataManager dataManager)
 var slicerElements = dataManager.CurrentReport.SlicerElements;         
 foreach (var sliceElement in slicerElements)
 string uniqueName = (sliceElement.ElementValue as DimensionElement).Hierarchy.LevelElements[0].UniqueName;
 var memberCollection = (dataManager.DataProvider as Syncfusion.Olap.DataProvider.AdomdDataProvider).GetMembersUsingMDX(uniqueName, 0, 0, false, Syncfusion.Olap.DataProvider.NodeTypes.Parent);
 DimensionElement excludedColumnElement = new DimensionElement();
 excludedColumnElement.Name = (sliceElement.ElementValue as  DimensionElement).ElementName;
 excludedColumnElement.AddLevel((sliceElement.ElementValue as DimensionElement).Hierarchy.ElementName, (sliceElement.ElementValue as DimensionElement).Hierarchy.LevelElements[0].ElementName);
for (var i = 0; i < memberCollection.Count; i++)
 if (((sliceElement.ElementValue as DimensionElement).Hierarchy.LevelElements[0].MemberElements[0].UniqueName) != memberCollection[i].UniqueName)
                       excludedColumnElement.Hierarchy.LevelElements[(sliceElement.ElementValue as DimensionElement).Hierarchy.LevelElements[0].ElementName].Add(new MemberElement { UniqueName = memberCollection[i].UniqueName });
sliceElement.ExcludedElementValue = excludedColumnElement;
return dataManager;


Step 4:

You can call the previous method through the “InitializeClient” method. Refer to the following code snippet.

public Dictionary<string, object> InitializeClient(Dictionary<string, object> jsonResult)
OlapDataManager DataManager = null;
DataManager.SetCurrentReport(CreateOlapReport((customData is Dictionary<string, object> && customData.ContainsKey("Report")) ? customData["Report"] : "", DataManager)); 
DataManager = excludeElements(DataManager);
return report;
