Property Value

Type Description

A String that specifies the Web Dashboard’s client identifier.


Use the ClientInstanceName property to specify a unique client-side identifier for the Web Dashboard. The ClientInstanceName property’s value can be used on the client side to programmatically access the client object rendered for the Web Dashboard in client-side script. This property is particularly important in referencing the Web Dashboard when it is contained within a naming container (for instance, within an ASPxPageControl‘s page or an ASPxPopupControl‘s window).

If the ClientInstanceName property is not specified, a Web Dashboard’s client identifier is generated automatically and equals the value of the Web Dashboard’s ID property. Note that in this case, client-side programmatic access to the Web Dashboard by its ID is not allowed when the Web Dashboard is contained within a naming container.
