Hi there,

in the Beginners Guide there is a screenshot which shows a dashboard. I attached the screenshot.

index.php/fa/29626/0/

Can someone tell me, how something like this can be achieved?

Thanks

Peter

I believe this is from the closed-source part of Scout, but someone from BSI will probably be better informed :-)

With closed source you mean, that BSI has got more sophisticated UI controls in place, and such a dashboard is not doable with the publicly available UI controls/features?

this is partially true:
- yes in the sense of: the screenshot above is from our commercial product
- no in the sense of: these are just custom controls and scout is designed in a way that anybody can built her/his own custom controls with their javascript library of choice

thanks for the quick answer :)

So more or less, I can use every control Scout provides.... its just a matter of the layout manager how to display them?

not quite: the squares in the dashboard can be moved around using the mouse, a feature that is specific to the dashboard control.

to learn more about writing custom controls for scout check out the code of the heatmap field in the (open source) scout widget application. some more information is available in this post.

Well in a first version, it would be more than enough, when the dashboard items are fixed....

Therefore i could use any of the default controls? Am I right?

If you can create your dashboard with default controls, then yes, that should be feasible. However, looking at the image in your initial post there are quite a few controls (squares) that are not "standard form fields". You can probably imitate some of them using AbstractHtmlField and AbstractSvgField controls.

I think in the example you showed, there is probably a CustomField for each square as well as for the overall dashboard containing the squares.

that might be the case for sure. My problem is, that I haven't got any JavaScript knowledge... So therefore its quite cumbersome for me :)

well, there are several options: you know somebody that knows javascript, you learn javascript, or you pay somebody to solve your javascript needs ;-)

I'll prefer the first 2 options :)) Learning takes time... But I'm not in a hurry :)

if you can afford it, learning is always the best option :-)
