How to: Perform a Drill-Down in MVCxDashboardViewer


This documentation applies to v16.2. Starting with v17.1, the ASPxDashboardViewer control is in maintenance mode. In v19.1, the new Web Dashboard Control replaces the old Web Dashboard Viewer. This means that the Web Dashboard Viewer will not be included in our installation packages. See our blog post for more information.

Refer to the following KB articles to learn how to migrate to ASPxDashboard / ASP.NET MVC Dashboard:

The following example demonstrates how to perform a drill-down in MVCxDashboardViewer on the client side.

In this example, the ASPxClientDashboardViewer.PerformDrillDown method is used to perform a drill-down for 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 ASPxClientDashboardViewer.GetAvailableDrillDownValues method. Select a required category and click the PerformDrillDown button to perform a 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 ASPxClientDashboardViewer.PerformDrillUp method is called to do this.

@model DevExpress.DashboardWeb.Mvc.DashboardSourceModel
@Html.DevExpress().DashboardViewer(settings => {
    settings.Name = "webViewer";
    settings.CallbackRouteValues = new { Controller = "Home", Action = "DashboardViewerPartial" };
    settings.ExportRouteValues = new { Controller = "Home", Action = "DashboardViewerPartialExport" };
    settings.ClientSideEvents.Loaded = "function() { createControls(); }";
    settings.ClientSideEvents.ActionAvailabilityChanged = "function() { setState(); }";
