Properties
  Name Summary
AggregationDesign
This value specifies a direct reference to the aggregation design for this partition.
AggregationPrefix
This value specifies the string prefix that should be used in the names of tables used for aggregation.
AggregationPrefixDefaultValue
Gets the default value for the AggregationPrefix property
Annotations
This is a collection of annotation items that can be used to specify documentation, tags, or other information. Annotations are particularly useful for storing information about nodes that can be used by BimlScript code.
(Inherited from AstNode)
BimlFile
This value specifies the BimlFile in which the Biml code that defines AstNode resides.
(Inherited from AstNode)
CurrentStorageMode
This value specifies the current OLAP storage mode for the partition.
CurrentStorageModeDefaultValue
Gets the default value for the CurrentStorageMode property
Error
Gets the error string for this node, if any
(Inherited from AstNode)
ErrorConfiguration
This value defines error handling information for the partition.
ErrorCount
Gets the count of error diagnostics that have been generated for this node
(Inherited from AstNode)
EstimatedRows
This value indicates the estimated number of items in the partition. The default setting is zero. This value is used to assist in aggregation design choices and other internal operations. While EstimatedCount can be set manually to reflect estimated member counts, BimlStudio also provides an automatic Member Count Estimator in the Cube ribbon.
EstimatedRowsDefaultValue
Gets the default value for the EstimatedRows property
FlowFile
This value specifies the containing code file of this node for Xml Binding purposes.
(Inherited from AstNode)
ForceDisableIncrementalChangeTracking
This value specifies whether changes to property values of this node should be automatically reflected in the corresponding Biml code. Its primary use is for temporary nodes that will never be persisted into BimlFiles.
(Inherited from AstNode)
FriendlyTypeName
Gets the friendly name of the type of this node
(Inherited from AstNode)
FriendlyTypeName
Gets the friendly name of the type of this node
(Inherited from AstNamedNode)

Gets the friendly name of the type of this node
(Inherited from AstNode)
FriendlyTypeNameStatic
Gets the friendly name of the type of this node
(Inherited from AstNamedNode)
FriendlyTypeNameStatic
Gets the friendly name of the type of this node
IsAstNodeReadOnly
Gets a value indicating whether this node is currently in a read-only state
(Inherited from AstNode)
IsInBrokenLiveBimlScript
Specifies whether or not this object is part of a live BimlScript containing an error, which means that this is a cached object that may be out-of-date

Gets a label that can be used to identify this node
(Inherited from AstNode)
MessageCount
Gets the count of message diagnostics that have been generated for this node
(Inherited from AstNode)

(Inherited from AstNamedNode)
NameDefaultValue
Gets the default value for the Name property
(Inherited from AstNamedNode)
ObjectTag
This property provides a general purpose storage mechanism for .NET objects to be associated with AstNode objects. It supplements the annotation system, which is intended for use with string-based metadata.
(Inherited from AstNode)
ParentItem
This value specifies the parent of the current node. All nodes must have a valid parent in the Biml framework, except for the root node.
(Inherited from AstNode)
ParentXObjectMappingProvider
This value specifies the parent of the current node for Xml Binding purposes.
(Inherited from AstNode)
PartitionType
This value specifies whether the partition is a simple data partition or additionally supports writeback.
PartitionTypeDefaultValue
Gets the default value for the PartitionType property
ProactiveCaching
This value defines the various caching behaviors associated with the parent partition.
ProcessingLocation
This value specifies a direct reference to the connection that will be responsible for processing this partition. This is normally used if a remote Analysis Services instance will be used for this purpose.
ProcessingMode
This value specifies the behavor of Analysis Services when processing aggregrations for this parition.
ProcessingModeDefaultValue
Gets the default value for the ProcessingMode property
ProcessingPriority
This value specifies the priority of processing this partition relative to other objects.
ProcessingPriorityDefaultValue
Gets the default value for the ProcessingPriority property
PropertyChangeNotificationTarget
Gets a reference to the ViewModel object for this node. This property should only be used by the internal Biml framework.
(Inherited from AstNode)
ReferenceCount
Gets or sets the total number of other node properties that hold a reference to this node.
(Inherited from AstNamedNode)
References
Gets collection of FrameworkItemReference objects, which track rich information about the properties that hold references to this node.
(Inherited from AstNamedNode)
RefId
Returns the SSIS refid that is used to reference this item from within an SSIS package or dataflow.
(Inherited from AstNamedNode)
RemoteDataSourceId
This value specifies the Id of the remote DataSource corresponding to this partition.
RemoteDataSourceIdDefaultValue
Gets the default value for the RemoteDataSourceId property
ScopeBoundary
Gets the scope boundary for this node
(Inherited from AstNode)
ScopeBoundary
Gets the ScopeBoundary for this referenceable item
(Inherited from AstNamedNode)
ScopedName
Gets the scoped name which can be used to uniquely identify this object among other objects of its type
(Inherited from AstNamedNode)
ScopedNamePrefix
Gets the prefix to use for ScopedName calculations
(Inherited from AstNamedNode)
Slice
This value specifies a Multi-Dimensional Expression (MDX) statement that indicates which cells are part of this partition.

Methods
  Name Summary
Events
  Name Summary
ItemLabelChanged
The ItemLabelChanged event occurs when the name of this node or any scope boundary ancestor (as determined by following ParentItem to the AstRootNode) name changes.
NameChanged
The NameChanged event occurs when the Name property of the current node has changed to a new value and that value has been committed.
NameChanging
The NameChanging event occurs when the Name property of the current node is receiving a new value but that value has not yet been committed.
ScopeBoundaryChanged
The ScopeBoundaryChanged event occurs when any ancestor (as determined by following ParentItem to the AstRootNode) changes in such a way as the ScopeBoundary for this node changes. This will force the ScopedName of this node to change if it is an AstNamedNode.
ScopedNameChanged
The ScopedNameChanged event occurs when the name of this node or any scope boundary ancestor (as determined by following ParentItem to the AstRootNode) name changes.
