Dashboard items are UI elements used to display data within the Dashboard. The DashboardItem class provides basic functionality for all types of dashboard items. All dashboard items can be divided into the following groups.

  • data-aware dashboard items that display data from the dashboard data source (DataDashboardItem class descendants);
  • static dashboard items that can display images (for instance, ImageDashboardItem);
  • a group used to arrange dashboard items within a dashboard (DashboardItemGroup).

The Dashboard.Items property provides access to a collection of items within a dashboard, while the DashboardItemGroup.Items allows you to access dashboard items contained within the specified group.

You can identify a specific dashboard item using its component name (the DashboardItem.ComponentName property). To specify the parent group for the current dashboard item, use the DashboardItem.Group property.
