This article shows how to color the cells or rows of an analytical grid using scripting.


  1. Create a virtual cube and define a report.
  2. Check in your virtual cube.
  3. Create a new analytical dashboard.
  4. Drag an Analytical Grid control from the toolbox to the canvas.
  5. Drag the virtual cube report from the toolbox and drop it over the analytical grid control.
  6. Save and preview the dashboard.

Script - AnalyticalGrid.RowLoaded

Add the following script for the AnalyticalGrid1.RowLoaded interaction:

// AnalyticalGrid1.RowLoaded(sender, e) // sender is type DashboardOlapGrid // e is AnalyticalOlapCellEventArgs DashboardOlapGrid olapGrid = (DashboardOlapGrid)sender;

// Color the Totals row if (e.HeaderInfo != null && e.HeaderInfo.IsTotal) { DashboardDataGridRow totalsRow = e.VisualElementArgs; totalsRow.Background = new DashboardSolidColorBrush(Colors.Cyan); }

// Color cells foreach (object cell in e.VisualElementArgs.Cells) { AnalyticalOlapCellEventArgs cellArgs = olapGrid.GetCellOlapData(cell); if (cellArgs.TargetCell == null) { // This is part of the header cell.Background = new DashboardSolidColorBrush(Colors.Orange); } else { // This is a data cell - check if its value is below 10 million if (cellArgs.TargetCell.Value < 10000000) { cell.Background = new DashboardSolidColorBrush(Colors.Yellow); } } }

To test the example, view the dashboard.
