The Dashboard Title can contain text, images and command buttons. Built-in functionality and settings which persist and can be saved in the dashboard definition file are described in the Dashboard Title topic.

You can also customize the dashboard title in your application at runtime by handling the DashboardDesigner.CustomizeDashboardTitle event. This approach allows you to modify the text displayed in the title, deliberately hide command buttons, and add custom buttons and drop-down menus to perform actions which can benefit end-users.

The following properties are accessible in the CustomizeDashboardTitle event handler:

e.Text

The text displayed in the dashboard title.

e.FilterText

The text displayed in the title that identifies a single master filter value applied to the dashboard. When several filters are apllied, the text is not displayed. However, you can modify the built-in behavior and provide any relevant text.

e.Items

Provides access to a collection of items (command buttons and other bar items) located in the dashboard title. You can modify the collection to remove or add built-in or custom items.
