Steps to accomplish this task consist of two main parts:1. Configuring the DashboardViewer (WinForms) or ASPxDashboardViewer (ASP.NET WebForms) components according to their corresponding product documentation and examples.
2. Embedding a configured dashboard viewer into a XAF form (or displaying it separately using traditional approaches for each target platform), and feeding it with data from the application database or external sources. Check out the following XAF documentation for this:
eXpressApp Framework > Concepts > UI Construction > Using a Custom Control that is not Integrated by Default
eXpressApp Framework > Concepts > Data Manipulation and Business Logic > Create, Read, Update and Delete Data
eXpressApp Framework > Concepts > Extend Functionality > Actions
An example for both Windows and the Web created based on the approaches from these documentation articles is available in the How to embed Devexpress Dashboard into an XAF application for both Windows and the Web ticket.
Finally, take special note that it is also possible to accomplish the same task without using the DevExpress Dashboard components: see the existing XAF DashboardView Class functionality. Feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
