DashboardViewer.CustomizeDashboardItemCaption Event

Allows you to customize the dashboard item caption at runtime.

Namespace: DevExpress.DashboardWin

Assembly: DevExpress.Dashboard.v19.1.Win.dll

Declaration

public event CustomizeDashboardItemCaptionEventHandler CustomizeDashboardItemCaption
Public Event CustomizeDashboardItemCaption As CustomizeDashboardItemCaptionEventHandler

Event Data

The CustomizeDashboardItemCaption event handler receives an argument of the CustomizeDashboardItemCaptionEventArgs type. The following properties provide information specific to this event.

Property Description
DashboardItemName Gets the name of the current dashboard item.
FilterText Gets or sets the text displayed in the dashboard title or in the dashboard item caption. The text identifies a single master filter value applied to the dashboard.
Items Provides access to command buttons located in the dashboard title or in the dashboard item's caption.
Text Gets or sets the text displayed in the dashboard title or the dashboard item caption.
Visible Gets or sets whether the current dashboard item's caption is shown,

Remarks

This event is raised when the dashboard is loaded (the DashboardViewer.Dashboard property is changed) or when end-user activities affect the dashboard item caption. Such activities include applying a master filter, performing drill-down or changing the parameter value.

You can change the displayed text, remove existing buttons, add custom buttons or command bar items, including drop-down menus.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use custom events to modify the text and toolbar items contained in the dashboard title area and dashboard item captions.

The dashboard title displays the dimensions by which the dashboard data is filtered. You can use a drop-down menu to selectively hide dashboard item captions. Clicking a custom button navigates to this example online.

A dashboard item caption displays the master filter values applied using that item.

Export buttons are hidden for all dashboard items except the map, and for the entire dashboard, if the Category contains "Bikes".
