Hi. We've been looking at implementing a dashboard for our users to show them the status of our servers in real-time. Does telerik have anything on the horizon in this area? Here are some cool features that would make this component a killer,
  • Some cool analog and digital gauges, dials, and status bars to display the information in graphical form
  • AJAX enabled to automatically refresh its information
  • A way for the control to tie into the server's system information in realtime -- such as available memory, uptime, CPU %, etc.
I think another component library that would make a great addition to telerik's already strong suite is a r.a.d. gauges control. Each control can be tied to a data-source and AJAX enabled. A timer control would enable it to refresh every x seconds, so the user would see, for example, a digital readout increasing/decreasing based on a value that's being updated on the database.

Thank you for your request, Alex.

The idea of telerik providing gauges and widgets is not new, and I am happy that you brought this topic up in the Forums. This way we will evaluate the interest in this product line and decide whether it is feasible for us to start researching the market.

By looking at our database, the request for a gauge control came about year and a half ago. I have added your vote for it into the system as well. Since we have kind of neglected the chart control for the last couple of releases, we do have plans for some major improvements and new features, which unfortunately have not been chosen yet.

We will consider all suggestions, so please do not spare them. The larger the interest we get in r.a.d.dashboad, the better the chances that we will provide some gauges in the near future.



All the best,
Rob

Thanks, Rob. After I posted this message yesterday, I realized I'd put it in the WinForms category. With your permission, I might create a similar thread in the ASP.NET section of the forums and see what people's reactions will be.

Actually, Alex, I moved the thread to the ASP.NET category already :)

There is no need to create a new thread.

I too would be extremely interested in some dashboard controls, but only in the very near future.

Well add me to list of interested parties! When I discussed the gauges in previous forums this is exactly what I had in mind for its use. Many clients in different industries including government, are looking to showing progress, budget, status .... using dashboards. If telerik decides to come out with a gauge type of chart to add to its existing chart designs, I think just providing a couple of samples of dashboard applications (like you guys did with the helpdesk) would satisfy my needs.

Hi Lisa,

Thank you for giving your opinion about eventual gauges and widgets for one of the future versions of the telerik controls. We may consider adding gauge chart type to the present existing types as well. We value sharing your thoughts with us - your telerik points have been updated for the feedback.

Best regards,
Stephen

Since the thread still exists in WinForm then I can give my vote to this to. That is I would like to see some gauges in the WinForm suite to.

Thank you for the vote, Joakim. We will start working on WinForms gages as soon as we provide all essential WinForms controls in our WinForms suite. As you can imagine, this may take some time. Nevertheless, the more votes we get for this, the higher the chances that we will develop gauges.

Thank you for your support!


Kind regards,
Rob
