Dapper: Mapping dynamic pivot columns from stored procedure

asp.net asp.net-mvc-3 dapper entity-framework

Question

My stored procedure is returning dynamic pivot columns as available. I am using the SQLMapper and COlumnTypeAttribute, But in the results I can only see the first column and its value, but the dynamic pivot column(s) and their values(s) are empty.

the sample data could look like

The first column is fixed, Rest of the columns are pivot columns.

TSBNumber      SystemXY   SystemBB   SystemTT
asdas          1/1/2013    
1231                      1/1/2014
12312          1/1/2013

Accepted Answer

I think you're making this very hard while it could be simple. I've once done almost exactly the same thing. Here's an anonymized version of it:

using Dapper;

...

using (var cnn = new SqlConnection(@"Data Source=... etc."))
{
    cnn.Open();

    var p = new DynamicParameters();
    p.Add("@params", "Id=21");

    var obs = cnn.Query(sql:"GetPivotData", param: p,
                        commandType:CommandType.StoredProcedure);

    var dt = ToDataTable(obs);
}

This ToDataTable method is probably similar to your ToHTMLTable method. Here it is:

public DataTable ToDataTable(IEnumerable<dynamic> items)
{
    if (items == null) return null;
    var data = items.ToArray();
    if (data.Length == 0) return null;

    var dt = new DataTable();
    foreach(var pair in ((IDictionary<string, object>)data[0]))
    {
        dt.Columns.Add(pair.Key, (pair.Value ?? string.Empty).GetType());
    }
    foreach (var d in data)
    {
        dt.Rows.Add(((IDictionary<string, object>)d).Values.ToArray());
    }
    return dt;
}

The heart of the logic is that the dynamic returned by Dapper's Query() extension method can be cast to an IDictionary<string, object>.
