HTML JavaScript Dashboard Control

Topics in this section describe how to configure the client-side JavaScript Dashboard control and integrate it to the web application.

You can create a web application with the HTML JavaScript dashboard using one of the following approaches:

  • Global Namespaces

    When you use this approach, the HTML JavaSCript Dashboard control comes in a pre-assembled dx-dashboard.js bundle. You need to get the scripts and dependencies from the npm package and manually add them to the page.

  • Modularity

    Alternatively, you can use Dashboard modules to import only the functionality you require. HTML JavaScript Dashboard use the following modules: Dashboard, Dashboard.Data, Dashboard.Designer, and Dashboard.Model. Unlike the global namespaces, modules are compact and can be loaded on demand. In this approach, scripts and dependencies are installed automatically from the npm package.

Both approaches are based on the client-server model. You need to create a server (backend) project and a client (frontend) part that includes all the necessary styles, scripts and HTML-templates.
