In the last few weeks I and Teo Lachev took the ownership of DAX Editor code. It is an add-in for Visual Studio that allows you to edit DAX measures in a text editor instead of using the Measure grid. It also provides other features (such as editing measures of an online Tabular database and performing a few queries). The user interface is not so user-friendly, so I suggest you to carefully read the documentation in order to understand how you can edit DAX measures in your own Visual Studio project.
So, what are the new features we added in the last weeks?
- Support for Visible and Description properties and for Visual Studio 2013 (read changes to apply to devenv.config file in VS2013)
- Support for MDX Script extension (useful for setting default member and custom color and format for MDX clients)
- Several bug fixes
We also re-published the DAX Editor in Visual Studio Extension Gallery. If you had a previous version, please uninstall it and then install the new one. We had to change the internal VSIX ID so the upgrade to this new version doesn’t work automatically. However, once you install this new build, upgrade should be easier in future builds.
