IDashboardStorage Interface

Custom storage of dashboards.

Namespace: DevExpress.DashboardWeb

Assembly: DevExpress.Dashboard.v22.1.Web.dll


public interface IDashboardStorage


Use the DashboardConfigurator.SetDashboardStorage method to create a storage for dashboards. You can use predefined dashboard storages (DashboardFileStorage or DashboardInMemoryStorage) or you can implement the IDashboardStorage/IEditableDashboardStorage interface to provide your logic to manage dashboards. Review the following topic for more information: Manage Multi-Tenancy.


The DashboardInMemoryStorage is used if you do not create the dashboard storage.


The following example shows how to create a custom dashboard storage for ASPxDashboard by implementing the IEditableDashboardStorage interface. In this example, a DataSet is used as an in-memory storage of dashboards. This DataSet can be used later to save dashboards in the database using DataAdapter.

namespace WebDesigner_CustomDashboardStorage
    public class DashboardStorageDataSet: DataSet
        public DashboardStorageDataSet()
            DataTable table = new DataTable("Dashboards");
            DataColumn idColumn = new DataColumn("DashboardID", typeof(Int32));
            idColumn.AutoIncrement = true;
            idColumn.AutoIncrementSeed = 1;
            idColumn.Unique = true;
            idColumn.AllowDBNull = false;
            table.Columns.Add("DashboardXml", typeof(string));
            table.Columns.Add("DashboardName", typeof(string));
            table.PrimaryKey = new DataColumn[] {idColumn};
