Create a Dashboard
The DashboardDesigner WinForms control allows you to embed the user interface required for end-users to create dashboards. To learn more, see the Ribbon, Bars and Menu sections.
When you run an application containing the DashboardDesigner control, it already contains an empty dashboard that is accessible via the DashboardDesigner.Dashboard property. If necessary, an end-user can create a new dashboard by clicking the New button in the ribbon Home tab.
After an end-user clicks the New button, the DashboardDesigner raises the DashboardDesigner.DashboardCreating event. You can handle this event to manually initialize a new dashboard and skip the Data Source wizard.
