The DevExpress Dashboard has a similar dashboard definition for different platforms. The dashboard created in the designer or in code can be loaded into WinForms, WPF, or Web application. However, each platform has its specifics.
The table below lists supported features and main differences between platforms:
Certain features are not implemented on the web or on the WPF platform. For instance, cell merging is not available for the Grid dashboard item.
Printing and Exporting
Despite various WinForms, WPF and web specifics, a dashboard and dashboard items are exported in the same manner, but not exactly WYSIWYG. For instance, dashboard items have no borders on the printed document, or font settings can vary.
The use of different platforms imposes the following limitations to end-user capabilities.
On the web, a dashboard item does not provide a context menu used to switch between different layers and export items.
Multi-selection in the desktop (WinForms and WPF) application and on the web is utilized using different approaches. For instance, an end-user can use the CTRL/SHIFT keys to select multiple elements in the WinForms and WPF application. On the web and in WinForms application which use the Touch UI mode, the Multi-Select button in the item's captions serves for this purpose.
