Overview

The Dundas Dashboard Data Label control lets you add a data-driven text label to your dashboard.

You typically use the data label control to display a single value from a KPI or dataset.

Usage

Displaying a KPI value

Follow these steps to display a single-valued KPI on a data label:

  1. Drag a Data Label control from the toolbox to the canvas.

  2. Drag a single-valued KPI from the toolbox to the data label on the canvas. The data label changes appearance on the canvas to show a preview of what it looks like at viewing-time.
    Drag KPI to data label.
  3. The data label's Data Column property is automatically updated with a reference to the KPI and measure that it is displaying.
