Dashboard Printing and Exporting (coming in 13.1)

One key feature many requested for our powerful dashboard tool was printing and exporting. Beginning with 13.1 you will be able to print both individual elements as well as the entire dashboard with little to no code.

Printing/Exporting Individual Elements

Dashboard Item Print (WinForms)

This feature is available in both the Windows and Web versions.

Dashboard Item Print (WebForms)

Full Print Preview

Printing an entire dashboard is also straight forward in WinForms:

dashboardViewer.PrintingOptions.PageLayout = DashboardPrintingPageLayout.Landscape;
dashboardViewer.PrintingOptions.ScaleMode = DashboardPrintingScaleMode.AutoFitToPageWidth;
dashboardViewer.ShowRibbonPrintPreview();

Notice that you have access to printing options as well as the option to use a Bar Preview or a Ribbon Preview form (in this example I use the latter).

WinForms Print Preview

This print preview uses our award winning XtraReports preview form which enables a large array of features including exporting, sizing, etc..

As always, if there are any comments and/or questions, feel free to get a hold of me!

Would love to have a play with this tool but unfortunately I am a mere second class citizen with only an Enterprise subscription to hold to my name, sigh ....

It would be extremely useful if you would consider adding Tab support to your dashboard allowing us to embed multiple dashboards into a single display.   It is very difficult to display complex info on single displays...

Just hoping...
