Namespace: DevExpress.DashboardCommon

Assembly: DevExpress.Dashboard.v21.2.Core.dll

Property Value

Type Default Description
String

null

A String that specifies a data member that corresponds to this data item.

Remarks

To specify the data member identifier, pass it to the constructor of a DataItem descendant when creating its instance.

The data member identifier consists of the data table name and the column name, dot separated. For instance, the Street Address column from the Customers table is identified as “Customers.Street Address”.

If a data source has been specified in code, particular data fields can be custom objects. In this instance, the identifier is a chain of property names, like “Customers.City.Population”.
