DashboardViewer.DataInspectorFormClosing Event

Occurs before the Data Inspector window closes. Allows you to access the window's grid controls.

Namespace: DevExpress.DashboardWin

Assembly: DevExpress.Dashboard.v20.2.Win.dll


public event DataInspectorFormClosingEventHandler DataInspectorFormClosing

Event Data

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

Property Description
AggregatedDataGrid Provides access to the Grid control that displays aggregated data in the Data Inspector dialog.
DashboardItemName Gets the name of the dashboard item for which the event is raised.
RawDataGrid Provides access to the GridControl that displays raw data in the Data Inspector dialog.


Use the DashboardViewer.ShowDataInspector method to invoke the Data Inspector window.

When the Data Inspector window opens, the DashboardViewer.DataInspectorFormLoad event occurs.


This example illustrates how to handle the DashboardViewer.DataInspectorFormLoad and DashboardViewer.DataInspectorFormClosing events to get access to the Grid controls in the Data Inspector window and change the grid settings.

You can modify the grid layout in the Data Inspector dialog. When the dialog closes, it calls the BaseView.SaveLayoutToStream method to save settings. When the dialog opens, the BaseView.RestoreLayoutFromStream method restores the settings.
