Microsoft Azure Specifics


Starting with v17.1, we recommend using the ASPxDashboard control or a corresponding ASP.NET MVC extension to display dashboards within web applications. Refer to the following KB articles to learn more about migration to ASPxDashboard / ASP.NET MVC Dashboard:

The Web Viewer has exporting specifics when a web application is deployed to Microsoft Azure. If the dashboard or specific dashboard items are exported to PDF or image formats, their content is saved to the Windows Metafile format, which is not supported by Azure. To overcome this limitation, set the DashboardExportSettings.CompatibilityMode property to DashboardExportCompatibilityMode.Restricted at the application startup.

using DevExpress.DashboardCommon;
// ...

void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    DashboardExportSettings.CompatibilityMode = DashboardExportCompatibilityMode.Restricted;

In this case, images from the corresponding exported documents will be always rendered as bitmaps.
