CreateDataSource function returns string not Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Database,
so u can't case the result of the function to Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Database.
check line 98 for function signature.

Thank for the help I was able to create DataSource with alterations as follows:
Just now need to work on code to produce DataSouceView.
static object CreateDataSource(Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Database db, string strDataSourceName, string strConnectionString)
        {
                Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Server svr = db.Parent;
                Microsoft.AnalysisServices.DataSource ds = db.DataSources.FindByName(strDataSourceName);
                if (ds != null)
                    ds.Drop();
                // Create the data source
                ds = db.DataSources.Add(strDataSourceName, strDataSourceName);
                ds.ConnectionString = strConnectionString;
                // Send the data source definition to the server.
                ds.Update();
                //return ds.Name;
                return ds;
        }

to create data source view use the the VS designer:

Thankyou for the link, I was hoping to use the code as follows:
but it says: The dbo cube either does not exist or has not been processed.
public string strDBServerName = "Localhost";
    public string strProviderName = "msolap";
    public string strFactTableName = "FactResellerSales";
    public string strDBName = "AdventureWorksDW";
    public string strCubeDBName = "OLAPDB";
    public string strDataSourceName = "OLAPDS";
    public string strCubeDataSourceViewName = "OLAPDSView";
    public int intDimensionTableCount = 6;
    public string strStringConnection;

Do I need to use the following code first somewhere?

I have added more code, but still get error:The dbo cube either does not exist or has not been processed.
The screen displays the following:

256:CreateDataSource(db, strDataSourceName, strStringConnection)

I have made one further change:
Not sure what to try next, still get error:
The dbo cube either does not exist or has not been processed.
//d) Create a DataSourceView based on the created DataSet.
            //static Microsoft.AnalysisServices.DataSourceView CreateDataSourceView(Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Database db, string strDataSourceName)
            //private static object CreateDataSourceView(Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Database objDatabase, Microsoft.AnalysisServices.RelationalDataSource objDataSource, DataSet objDataSet, string strCubeDataSourceViewName)
            objDataSourceView = (Microsoft.AnalysisServices.DataSourceView)CreateDataSourceView(db, ds.Name);// This line changed
