    The Telerik Sales Dashboard is a demo application for monitoring a company’s sales representatives’ performance. The dashboard provides senior management with rich data visualizations for analyzing enterprise data, thus facilitating the decision-making process in a typical business environment. The demo demonstrates a best practice approach for structuring a large-scale enterprise application that has a single business-logic layer shared by two different presentation layers: a desktop version (built on WPF), and a web version (built on Silverlight). Both UI implementations have an identical look, thanks to the industry’s only truly cross-platform UI components –RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF. The two suites share the same API and are derived from the same codebase, enabling extensive code reuse between WPF and Silverlight front-ends.

    The Silverlight demo looks great, except at 1024x768 resolution the chart section does not scale properly and is cut-off, and is rather difficult to read. I run a rather high resolution so its not a problem for me personally, but we have a great deal of users that use 1024 res due to lcd restrictions.

    Other than that.. this is a great demo and showcases what can be done with your control suites. I would love to see a walkthrough whitepaper or KB on how this was created.

    Ditto on the whitepaper or walk-through for creating this demo.  It would be nice to have more explanation for why the developer's chose to do things the way they did.

    I have downloaded the sample demo source code and when I try to build the solution, i am getting the following errors.  any ideas?

    Hello Pratik,

    Here is how to run the solutions:

    WPF:
    - open the Telerik.SalesDashboard_WPF solution
    - make sure the build configuration is "Debug" and NOT "Debug XBAP"
    - set the Telerik.SalesDashboard.Shell.Desktop project as the startup project

    Silverlight:
    - open the Telerik.SalesDashboard_SL solution
    - make sure the build configuration is "Debug" and NOT "Debug XBAP"
    - set the Telerik.SalesDashboard.Web project as the startup project
    - set the Telerik.SalesDashboard.ShellTestPage.aspx page as the startup page

    Note that you should have Telerik OpenAccess ORM installed on your machine in order to be able to build the solutions. Let me know if you have any problems with the solutions after you follow the above instructions.

    As a side note, a whitepaper is actually being prepared and should be available early next week.

    Thank you for the detailed response.  I am able to build the solution now for silverlight. When i run the application though, i get an error message regarding

    {"Telerik.OpenAccess: No enhanced assembly has been found for meta-data construction. This may be caused by a missing app.config file (use app.config as embedded resource then) or by an insufficient references section in the configuration file (add the referenced enhanced assemblies there too) or by a wrong enhancement setting; please check your configuration."}

    I have right clicked on the Telerik.SalesDashboard.Web project and updated the configuration file again.  I also tried deleting the Telerik OpenAccess ORM references from the BIN folder and add them again from my installation inside Program Files.

    I do have Telerik OpenAccess ORM installed.

    Also, do you know a specific date when the whitepaper will be available.  That will be very helpful as we evaluate these controls.

    Hi guys,

     Pratik, Bilal,

    The whitepaper discussing the creation of the Telerik Sales Dashboard Demo and the usage of Prism is almost completed but still requires some more work and polishing. I expect we will be able to publish it next week. In the meanwhile if you have any specific questions regarding the use of our controls please do not hesitate to open a dedicated support ticket or forum thread and we will be happy to answer them.

     Matjaž,

    To download the source code for the Telerik Sales Dashboard Demo for Silverlight go to Your Account->Downloads and just below RadControls for Silverlight (which includes all controls and examples) there is another link which says "Source Code, Automatic Installation, Manual Installation, Examples..."  - there you can choose to download only the Sales Dashboard Demo.


    All the best,
    Hristo

    Is it possible to download this source when you only have the trial? I would like to see how to work with this in combination with prism and how you did this. I need this to be able to make a decision about the controls to use in my project.

    Hello Valentin,

    thanks for the answer. When I look here: http://www.telerik.com/account/free-trials/single-trial.aspx?pmvid=2061, I don't see a download option for the Dashboard, all I see is Astoria Demo, Bugtracker Demo, Car Configurator Demo, Telerik Media Demo and Page Navigation Demos (next to the manual installation and dlls only). Which should I use then?

    Thank you!

    I too am eagerly awaiting the updated Sale Dashboard codeset.  I've read the whitepaper.  I'm working on architecting a large Enterprise application that we plan to build it to use MVVM and Telerik Silverlight Control Suite, it'll be interesting to see how Telerik designed it.

    Hi There,

    Its very nice Idea. I liked it. I updated my Client. He liked it more then me. We started with our existing silverlight project to WPF compatible. That is starting point of problem.

    You do not have same control list in Silverlight & WPF. E.g. In sliverlight we have docking but In WPF  :( ....
    Same happened with Coverflow and many more.

    Client is waiting to see the thing. I am stuck. Before I start banging my head on the wall. if you have any solution it would be great help.

    Hi Nikhil,

    We are working on porting the Docking component to WPF. It should be available with our Q3 release (begining of November). Beta version will be available ~1 month earlier.

    As for the Coverflow - you can use the Carousel in WPF.

    Hi Andy,

    You can safely discard the source control bindings - you do not need them on your machine.

    Here is how to run the solutions:

    WPF:
    - open the Telerik.SalesDashboard_WPF solution
    - make sure the build configuration is "Debug" and NOT "Debug XBAP"
    - set the Telerik.SalesDashboard.Shell.Desktop project as the startup project

    Silverlight:
    - open the Telerik.SalesDashboard_SL solution
    - make sure the build configuration is "Debug" and NOT "Debug XBAP"
    - set the Telerik.SalesDashboard.Web project as the startup project
    - set the Telerik.SalesDashboard.ShellTestPage.aspx page as the startup page

    Note that you should have Telerik OpenAccess ORM installed on your machine in order to be able to build the solutions. Let me know if you have any problems with the solutions after you follow the above instructions.

    Hi Nikhil,

    It seems you are using our latest internal build for SL3 but compare it with the official version of our WPF controls. Please download the latest internal build for WPF. In order to see it in Your Account->Downloads you need to download the latest official release for WPF. Give it a try and let me know how it goes.

    I love look and feel (and the functionality) of this app and can see potential for it within my organisation. I think these components from Telerik have good potential for us.
    I am preparing a prototype/concept app for my commrades to convince them to purchase Telerik components for our use.

    I have been reviewing how this application works and fiddling with it.
    I have added another data component, and the corresponding classes, modules, etc.
    I copied the Representatives items and renamed and configured them to be Sites (per my other data).

    I have tried all sorts of things but I am getting stuck when it comes to updating and adding my bits to the Service Reference - SalesDashboardServiceReference - I think I need to add the GetRepresentativesCompletedEventArgs but can't find where or how.

    Where do I do this sort of activity?
