How to: Perform a Drill-Down in the ASP.NET Web Forms Dashboard Control

  • 2 minutes to read

The following example demonstrates how drill down in ASPxDashboard on the client side.

In this example, the ASPxClientDashboard.PerformDrillDown method is used to drill down in a specified row in a Grid dashboard item. The dxSelectBox widget contains categories for which a drill-down can be performed. These categories are obtained using the ASPxClientDashboard.GetAvailableDrillDownValues method. Select a required category and click the Perform Drill-Down button to drill down by the selected category.

When the Grid displays a list of products (the bottom-most detail level), you can only perform a drill-up action that returns you to the top detail level. The ASPxClientDashboard.PerformDrillUp method is called to do this.
