AjaxRemoteServiceOptions Interface

Provides options for customizing the AjaxRemoteService.


export interface AjaxRemoteServiceOptions

The Ajax remote service is a default IRemoteService's implementation that used to exchange information between client and server sides. You can get different information from a server (data sources, export information, a dashboard model), get a dashboard request time, pass custom HTTP headers, and so on.

The code samples below show how to configure the client: set the server's url and pass a custom Authorization header.

  window.onload = function () {
    var dashboardControl = new DevExpress.Dashboard.DashboardControl(document.getElementById("web-dashboard"), {
        endpoint: "http://www.dashboard.server",
        ajaxRemoteService: {
            headers: {
                'Authorization': 'AuthToken123'

The client-side dashboard control uses the HTTP Post method to export the entire dashboard or a dashboard item. This approach doesn't allow to send HTTP headers from client to server side. In this case, the dashboard control adds the <input type="hidden"> element to the form for each HTTP header from the headers collection. The hidden input element has the same ID as the HTTP header's name. The header value is sent to the server side as the value of the corresponding field. You can use the HttpRequest.Form collection to access the hidden fields' values on the server side.
