While the HierarchyCollection externally represents a collection of Hierarchy objects, the collection is internally loaded and managed in one of two ways, depending on the parent of the collection:

  • If the parent object was referenced as a result of a query, as in the case of a Set referenced from a Axis, the collection represents the members referenced by that query.

  • If the parent object was referenced as a result of a request for metadata, as in the case of a Dimension referenced from a CubeDef, the collection represents the members referenced by the definition of the parent object.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
