Providing Data

The Web Dashboard allows you to bind various dashboard items to data in a virtually uniform manner. To learn more, see the Binding Dashboard Items to Data in the Web Dashboard's UI topic.

The only difference is in the data sections that the required dashboard item has. This topic describes how to bind a Treemap dashboard item to data.
