Hi Misha, 

Thanks for using Syncfusion products. 



documentation on how to use the Dashboard Designer.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

As we are concentrating on Dashboard designer as an End - user Application with the feature enhancement, we can design the dashboard report using the dashboard Designer in WPF with the data from the SQL Server, SQL Server Compact Edition(*.sdf) ,PostgreSQL, MySQL, OLAP data sources (*.cub) and the data source with the file formats such as XLs/XLSX,CSV and the XML.

 We are including the following controls 

·         Grid

·         Chart

·         Gauge

·         Linear gauge

·         Map

·         Tree map

·         Range Navigator

With its own customization to visualize the data. 

we are including the extra features of the Dashboard and

let you know about the release, once the release has been rolled out.



Dashboard designer with Entity Framework Data context

As of now we are implementing the dashboard designer to bind the data with Relational data sources like from SQL server and Microsoft SQL Analysis and Services. Can you please create an incident with the exact requirement of Binding entity framework data context with dashboard designer?  We will update on this query once you have created an incident.


Please let us know if you have any concerns on this.

Hi, Paul.
I read in your reply that you told about connections to XML, CSV and MySQL.
What must I do to enable this kinds of connections?

I can see only the options to SQL services and XMLA.
