DashboardDesigner.RangeFilterDefaultValue Event

Provides the capability to specify the default selected range in the Range Filter dashboard item.

Namespace: DevExpress.DashboardWin

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


public event RangeFilterDefaultValueEventHandler RangeFilterDefaultValue

Event Data

The RangeFilterDefaultValue event's data class is RangeFilterDefaultValueEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
ArgumentDateTimeGroupInterval Gets the date-time group interval applied to the Range Filter argument.
ArgumentType Gets the type of Range Filter’s argument values.
DashboardItemName Gets the component name of the Range Filter for which the event was raised.
Range Gets or sets the selected range for the current Range Filter dashboard item.


Use the RangeFilterDefaultValueEventArgs.DashboardItemName event parameter to get the component name of the Range Filter item that raises the event. The RangeFilterDefaultValueEventArgs.Range property allows you to specify the selected range.

To apply default filtering to other master filter items, handle the DashboardDesigner.MasterFilterDefaultValues event.


This event is not raised in asynchronous mode. Use the SetInitialDashboardState event to set the default selected range. See Manage Dashboard State for more information about a dashboard state.


This example demonstrates how to initialize master filter in a dashboard loaded in the DashboardViewer control. The code for the DashboardDesigner control is the same, because the DashboardDesigner’s events have the same name and functionality.

The following code initializes master filter items:

Master filter initialization can apply one item’s master filter to another master filter item - a mutual filtering occurs. In that scenario, the MasterFilterDefaultValues event has limitations if the Neutral Filter mode is disabled. Refer to the How to apply default filtering to master filter items that affect each other example for more information.
