Overview

Dundas Dashboard Explorer for iPad is a native app for iPad devices that lets users navigate available Dundas Dashboard projects and view dashboards with HTML5 rendering.

The minimum required version of iOS is described in System Requirements.

Note: Dundas Dashboard Explorer does not support Windows authentication login. As an alternative, you can use the HTML Explorer from the Safari browser.

Setup

Install the app

You can download and install the Dundas Dashboard Explorer app from the iTunes App Store:

Usage

Using the Dundas Dashboard Explorer on an iPad is similar to using the HTML Explorer in a web browser.

When you launch the app for the first time, it displays a login screen.

You can type either of the URLs below to get started. This is the site of some demo HTML dashboards which Dundas has prepared.

  • mobile.dundas.com/htmlexplorer.ashx
  • mobile.dundas.com/htmlhome.ashx

Alternatively, you can enter the URL of your Dundas Dashboard server.

Changing the Server URL

To use the app with your own dashboards (which you've already prepared using Dundas Dashboard 5.0), you must change the server URL in the app as follows:

  1. From the top-right corner of the screen, tap Server URL. The Change Server URL screen is displayed.
    Change Server URL screen.
  2. In the Change Server URL screen, type the URL of your Dundas Dashboard 5.0 server, then tap OK. As an example, your Dundas Dashboard 5.0 URL might look like: http://mydashsvr/ or http://mydashsvr:7000/

When the app restarts, it will connect with your Dundas Dashboard server and request that you log in first (just like you would when using the HTML Explorer from a web browser).

You can also change the server URL from the settings screen for the Dundas Dashboard Explorer app:

Sharing a link to the dashboard

While viewing a dashboard in the Explorer app, tap Share Link in the top-right corner of the screen. This lets you share a URL link to the current dashboard with other users.

The ShareLink menu displays a URL link that will produce the same dashboard that you are currently viewing. From this menu, you can choose to copy the URL link for the current dashboard to the clipboard, or send out an email message which contains the URL link.
