Building the Designer and Viewer Applications

The topics in this section provide an overview of how to prepare and integrate the Dashboard Designer or Viewer into a WinForms or web application.

Tip

eXpressApp Framework applications provide a ready-to-use UI for designing and viewing dashboards in WinForms and ASP.NET applications. Users can create dashboards at runtime and persist them in the application database. A list of application dashboards, which can be invoked from the navigation panel, is accompanied by actions used to manage dashboards (create, view, modify). Refer to the Dashboards Module section to learn more.
