Create a Custom Item

In addition to numerous built-in Dashboard Items, you can implement and embed your own items into the Web Dashboard - custom items. A custom item is a JavaScript extension that allows you to add standard item features, including Data Shaping, Interactivity, export, etc.

The tutorials below describe how to create custom items.


This tutorial requires a ready-to-use Web Designer application. You can create such an application using the DevExpress Template Gallery or by following the tutorials in the Build Web Dashboard Applications section. The custom items below are implemented in the dashboard template projects (the Web Forms, MVC, .NET Core, and HTML JavaScript applications).

Add the Custom_Items folder to the project to store script files containing a custom item's source code.
