Saving a Dashboard

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.

    wdd-save-dashboard

    The following message indicates that you have successfully saved the dashboard.

    wdd-dashboard-saved-message

    Note

    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.

    wdd-save-chages-confirm-dialog

To learn how to open the saved dashboard, see Opening a Dashboard.
