Event Data

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

Property Description
Dashboard A dashboard to load.


The DashboardLoaded event is raised when the DashboardControl loads a dashboard from XML definition file. It happens when calling the DashboardControl.LoadDashboard method or assigning the file path or resource pack URI to the DashboardControl.DashboardSource property.

The event occurs after the Dashboard object is created and before it is assigned to the DashboardControl.Dashboard property.


This event does not occur when a dashboard object model or dashboard class instance is assigned using the DashboardControl.Dashboard or DashboardControl.DashboardSourceproperty in XAML or in code.

Use the DashboardLoadedEventArgs.Dashboard event parameter to modify the dashboard before the DashboardControl displays it.

Handle this event to change the data source for the loaded dashboard, as illustrated in the following code snippet.
