Create, View and Modify Dashboards in an ASP.NET Web Forms Application
- 2 minutes to read
This topic describes how an end-user can create and view a dashboard at runtime in an ASP.NET Web Forms application when the Dashboards Module is added.
In the Navigation, open the Reports group, choose the Dashboards item and click New.
Setup the created dashboard according to the Creating Dashboards on the Web guidelines.
To display localized values of an enumeration property in a dashboard, add a calculated field to the data source class. Set this field’s IModelMember.Expression to GetEnumCaption([Enum Property]). In the dashboard designer, bind items to this calculated field instead of the enumeration property.
After a dashboard is saved in the designer, it is added to the Dashboards List View. You can click the saved dashboard to view it.
In an ASP.NET Web Forms application, you can access dashboards added in a WinForms application, and visa versa.
In a Web Dashboard, data is reloaded automatically. Handle the ASPxDashboard.ConfigureDataReloadingTimeout event to configure the data reloading timeout. For more information on how to access a dashboard control, refer to the following topic: Customize the Dashboard Control.
To modify an existing dashboard, select it and click the ShowDashboardDesigner Action.
