Please find my comments below:
In the July 16, 2014 release, there isn't a hook that we could drive a linked chart from?
Yes, currently there isn't a hook and in order to bind the chart the developer is responsible for transforming the OLAP data in understandable for the widget format.
I ask as the original post from July 1st - and so probably from a beta?
Please refer to first comment above.
If no possibility in current version, is it likely within 2014 releases?
Currently, there isn't specific plans for creating a specific OLAP aware chart, although it is possible to transform the OLAP data and visualize it in the chart (like I mentioned in the first comment).
Is there a method to bind a chart itself directly to remote xmla datasource?
The OLAP data format is completely different than what the chart can visualize. A transformation is needed in order to display the data correctly.
We prepared a proof-of-concept Dojo demo
, which demonstrates one possible way of OLAP data transformation. Please note that the demo is just a sample and it isn't intended for direct usage in production environment. Any specific implementation is up to the developer responsible for the OLAP integration.
