PropertyCollection Class

Gets a read-only collection of Property objects contained by a CellSet.

System.Object
  Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient.PropertyCollection

Namespace:  Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient
Assembly:  Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient (in Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient.dll)
public sealed class PropertyCollection : ICollection, 
	IEnumerable

The PropertyCollection type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public propertyCountGets the number of Property objects in the collection.
Public propertyIsSynchronizedGets a value indicating whether access to the collection is synchronized (thread safe).
Public propertyItem[Int32]Gets the specified Property from the PropertyCollection collection by its index. In Microsoft Visual C#, this property is the indexer for the PropertyCollection class.
Public propertyItem[String]Gets the specified Property from the PropertyCollection collection by its name. In Microsoft Visual C#, this property is the indexer for the PropertyCollection class.
Public propertySyncRootGets an object that can be used to synchronize access to the PropertyCollection collection.

  NameDescription
Public methodCopyToCopies the elements of the PropertyCollection collection to the specified array.
Public methodEquals (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodFindGets the specified Property from the PropertyCollection collection by its name.
Public methodGetEnumeratorGets an Enumerator for iterating through the PropertyCollection collection.
Public methodGetHashCode (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetType (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToString (Inherited from Object.)

  NameDescription
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodICollection.CopyToCopies the elements of the PropertyCollection to the specified array, starting at a particular array index.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIEnumerable.GetEnumeratorGets an enumerator that iterates through the PropertyCollection.

The PropertyCollection is used by a CellSet to represent the axes returned by a query. Each Property contained by an PropertyCollection represents a set of congruent tuples organized along one or more hierarchies.

NoteNote

The filter Property is not contained in this collection. To access the filter Property, you must reference the OlapInfo.AxesInfo.FilterAxes property of the CellSet.

The following subroutine, given a CellSet, iterates through the PropertyCollection (represented by the Axes property of the CellSet) and displays information for each Property.

Public Sub ListAxes(ByRef cellsetToCheck As CellSet)

    ' Check the parameter before performing actions on it.
    If cellsetToCheck Is Nothing Then
        Throw New System.ArgumentNullException("cellsetToCheck")
    Else
        ' Iterate through the axes of the
        ' CellSet object. The Axes property of the 
        ' CellSet object returns a reference to the
        ' PropertyCollection object.

        Try
            Dim PropertyToCheck As Property

            Debug.WriteLine("Found " & cellsetToCheck.Axes.Count & _
                " axes in cellset:")

            For Each PropertyToCheck In cellsetToCheck.Axes

                Debug.WriteLine("  Name:  " & _
                    PropertyToCheck.Name)
            Next
        Catch ex As AdomdConnectionException
            ' The connection could not be opened or was disconnected.
            ' This error can occur at any time, if the provider is 
            ' disconnected from the server.
            Debug.WriteLine(ex)
            Throw ex
        Catch ex As AdomdErrorResponseException
            ' A response is received from a provider which indicates an error.
            Debug.WriteLine(ex)
            Throw ex
        Catch ex As AdomdUnknownResponseException
            ' A response has been returned from the provider that 
            ' was not understood.
            Debug.WriteLine(ex)
            Throw ex
        Catch ex As AdomdCacheExpiredException
            ' A cached version of an ADOMD.NET object is no longer valid.
            ' This error is typically raised when reviewing metadata.
            Debug.WriteLine(ex)
            Throw ex
        Catch ex As AdomdException
            ' Any other error raised by ADOMD.NET.
            Debug.WriteLine(ex)
            Throw ex
        Catch ex As Exception
            ' Any other error.
            Debug.WriteLine(ex)
            Throw ex
        End Try
    End If
End Sub
