Loads a dashboard from the specified XML file.
A String that specifies the path to a file that contains a dashboard.
You need a dashboard (a Dashboard instance) to be created to use the Dashboard.LoadFromXml method.
To load a dashboard from a stream, use another overload of the LoadFromXml method that takes a stream parameter. You can use the DashboardDesigner.LoadDashboard / DashboardViewer.LoadDashboard methods as an alternative to the Dashboard.LoadFromXml method.
To save a dashboard to a file or stream, use the Dashboard.SaveToXml method.
The following code snippet shows how to load a dashboard from the project's folder:
dashboardControl1.Dashboard = new Dashboard(); dashboardControl1.Dashboard.LoadFromXml("Data\\Dashboard.xml");
dashboardControl1.Dashboard = New Dashboard() dashboardControl1.Dashboard.LoadFromXml("Data\Dashboard.xml")
