Interactivity in the WinForms Dashboard Designer

This document describes the features that enable interaction between the Pivot and other dashboard items. These features include Master Filtering.

Master Filtering

The Dashboard allows you to use a data-aware dashboard item[1] as a filter for other dashboard items (Master Filter). To learn more, see the Master Filtering topic, which describes filtering concepts common to all dashboard items.

Data displayed in the Pivot dashboard item can be filtered by other master filter items. You can prevent the pivot from being affected by other master filter items: enable the Ignore Master Filters button in the Interactivity settings group on the Data ribbon tab of the Pivot Tools contextual tab set.


To do this in code, set the FilterableDashboardItemInteractivityOptions.IgnoreMasterFilters property to true.

  1. A Pivot, Bound Image, and Text Box dashboard items cannot be used as a Master Filter.
