A Web Dashboard control provides the capability to save a dashboard definition (dashboard items, data source, data binding and layout settings, etc.) to an XML definition. This can be accomplished in the following ways.
You can save the dashboard definition manually. For this, open the dashboard menu and click Save.
The following message indicates that you have successfully saved the dashboard.
To learn how to configure a dashboard storage location, see the Preparing a Dashboard Storage topic.
The dashboard definition can be saved when the currently opened dashboard is closed (for instance, the page containing the ASPxDashboard is closed, a new dashboard is created or a different dashboard is opened). By default, a save confirmation dialog will be invoked.
To learn how to open the saved dashboard, see Opening a Dashboard.
