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.

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,

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.

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?

Hello Richard,

The GetRepresentativesCompletedEventArgs type is automatically generated for you by Visual Studio when you add the service reference to the Silverlight project. This means that if you make any changes to the WCF service on the server side, you need to update the service reference in the Silverlight project in order to get the changes to the service on the client side. You can update the serivce reference by right-clicking on it in the Silverlight project and choosing "Update Service Reference" from the context menu that pops up.

Let me know if this helps.

Does that require me making my "Sites" part of the "Representatives", instead of a class, module, etc of their own, in order to be reflected in the Service?

Tihomir Petkov
Telerik team
answered on 04 Sep 2009, 08:03 AM
Hello Richard,

Whether you make a dedicated Sites module or you intergrate the data in the Representatives module depends entirely on your project requirements. However, what you do with your data on the client side, does not affect the data types exposed by the service proxy - they are determined by the WCF service on the server. Thus, if you want to alter the types exposed by the service, you should do that on the server side and the changes will be available on the client side after you update the service reference (which will re-generate the service proxy).

Hello Richard,

The WCF service is included in the solution - you can find it in the web project. Regarding your second question, you may use a duplex WCF service. Here are some links that may be useful if you are not familiar with this type of services:

http://blog.developers.ba/post/2009/02/25/Silverlight-chat-application-using-WCF-full-duplex.aspx
http://silverlight.net/forums/p/121442/274009.aspx

http://silverlightforbusiness.net/2009/06/23/pushing-data-from-the-server-to-silverlight-3-using-a-duplex-wcf-service/

However, using a duplex service would require a number of modifications to the client code, including re-writing the service proxy.

Hi Bilal,

The reason for the error you get is that the source code is distributed without the .pdb files of our controls. To resolve the problem simply copy the correct version (build # and type -  trial or full) of the .pdb files to the Binaries/Telerik/[Silverlight | Desktop] folder in the solution. The .pdb files are included in the .zip when you download the controls from our website.

Let me know if you have any difficulties.

Hi Bilal,

If I may make a comment:

It depends on what you mean by fancy.  There are limitations to what Silverlight can do.  That being said, Prism is a collection of related software patterns and libraries and is not trivial to fully implement in a robust enterprise application.  It does have a steep learning curve but the rewards can be great.  It does require a good understanding of what Prism is trying to achieve and how you want to apply it to your situation.  This means it takes research time...

As far as ideas, the best I can say is grab the Prism (Composite Application) guidance up on codeplex.  Then read it thoroughly.  Let it ferment in your brain, thinking how it applies to the application(s) you want to build.  Then read it again, looking for patterns that apply best to achieve that..  Then read Miroslav's blog post, download his source code and see how one might use the radDocking control to implement Prism.  Ask yourself what parts of Prism his example implements.

At that point, you'll have a better understanding of Prism as it applies to Telerik's controls.  Then it's up to you to design your application and implement the parts of Prism you need.

Regards,
Paul from Minneapolis

Hi Paul,
Thanks for your feedback. I truly appreciate it.

Actually, I started like 3 months ago reading on Silverlight. I read around 4 or 5 books. I also worked on some of the Telerik's control. I even implemented a pluggable solution in Silverlight named it "VBC shortcuts". Where I load links to downloadable XAP files. Each XAP downloaded is a separate application by itself all hosted under the umbrella of one main host application.
Now I am planning to learn Prism by convering this application to be modular and based on Prism.

I read the guidance once, for sure I have better understanding on how Prism works. I also went through the Telerik's Sales Dashboard, checked out how things are done.

I printed the Prism dashboard again and will go through it as a second read I am sure I will conclude things easily.

But maybe the few resources on Prism, examples and stuff is making it hard to fully understand it and what can be done using it.


Thanks again,
Regards

Hello guys,

@Heinz: The version of the application that you can currently download was targeting the Silvelright 2 platform. For our upcoming Q3 release, which is due in the beginning of November, we will update the application to the latest version of our controls and Silverlight 3. The most probable cause for the error you get is that you are using a version of the OpenAccess ORM that is different than the one used originally in the solution.

@Bilal: I agree that Prism has a bit of a steep learning curve and using it requires proper research and some experience. We have provided several examples, but if the Microsoft guys, who are the authors after all, do not provide more samples and learning materials, Prism will remain somewhat obscure and it will not be able to enter the mainstream.

Regarding your question about the .pdb files, they were actually not included in the last several builds we released. However, we will include them in the Q3 build, so that it is easier for clients to debug their applications.

I got a reply from Telerik. Apparently it's no longer on the Q3 release (presumably why I couldn't find the link). You have to try to download older Q2 version and you'll see the link to download the sales demo source code.

Kerrigan.

In order to download the source code of the Telerik Sales Dashboard Demo, please follow the steps below:

 

1.    Go to Telerik.com and log-in.

2.    Go to the ‘Free Trials’ section and select ‘Older Versions’ for the Silverlight product line.

3.    Select ‘2009.2 812’ and then select ‘Telerik Sales Dashboard Demo’.

Hello,
Having used an intelligent way of dealing with data transfer objects by implementing interfaces at the client-side, What if there is a need to edit/update records at the client side and provide validation also.

Is there an idea on how would this be added to the Telerik Dashboard?

Hello guys,

@Tairin: I think that the information/directions from the forum threads linked below will help you address the error you receive when using OpenAccess as part of the ASP.NET AJAX Sales Dashboard application:

http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/orm/orm-express/telerik-openaccess-orm-no-enhanced-assembly-has-been-found-for-meta-data-construction.aspx
http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/orm/general-discussions/orm-example-errors.aspx

@Bilal: I believe the best approach to this will be to use the RIA Services validation mechanism. Ofcourse this will be a quite a new approach compared to the one used right now in the Sales Dashboard.

Thanks guys,  I resolved the previous issue.

Now, I am getting lost to database link between the dashboard (for asp.net) and database.
When I install the demo, I've installed the OpenAccess and download the NorthWind database in my machine.
To trail down interaction between database and web application, I made simply changes to Employees Table in NorthWind database (such as Names...) that can be shown on the Employees list view in the front page. But, the website don't reflect the changed.
I saved the database (surely.) and Also changed the names in LargeEmployees Table, just in case.
Neither didn't work and I guess that the link between project and website didn't set up correctly.
However, I still can load the site with information. 
I attached a screen shot  for employees watcher (- that is data source of EmployeesListView). What I am bothering is that  it says
"Telerik.OpenAccessQuery#4 not execute" although it loads the data ("Results View").

I didn't change web configuration file.
Could you give me an idea how I can re-integrate the connection between local computer database and  project??
Or could you let me know other way to check the real-connection? ( the database link in Visual Studio looks fine. I can open Northwind.mdf through Sever Explorers section in VS and the UpdateDatabase has been set as True)

Hi Tairin,

Initially the model in your project matches the schema on your database. If you however have to make some changes in the database schema you will have to merge the changes with your model. This is done by using the merge functionality of Telerik OpenAccess ORM. Basically what you need to do is go in the reverse mapping wizard and click the button merge located at the top left corner of the wizard. This will open the merge window.

You see the query as not executed due to the deferred loading used by Telerik OpenAccess. This means that the query is not executed until the result enumerator is used to retrieve the first result object. Internally the grid does it for you and that is why you see your information loaded. Explicitly you can request the count of your result query and that will execute it.

Best regards,
Petar

We are developing a web app and require to read multiple points in various line graphs. Here is an example from Google finance: http://www.google.com/finance?q=INDEXDJX:.DJI,INDEXSP:.INX,INDEXNASDAQ:.IXIC

Does Telerik has something to offer on the similar lines?

Thanks,

Can the Sales Dashboard Demo work with the latest version of Telerik?

Why is the demo not on the latest download page but can only be found listed for last year version?

Hi

Has this update been done as yet?

Everytime I do a build on the demo project, I get the following error:

rror 15 Unknown server tag 'telerik:OpenAccessDataSource'. C:\Temp\SalesDashboardSource\Telerik.SalesDashboard.Web\Views\Orders.ascx 84 

Update the reference Telrik.OpenAccess to the latest build. Removed the previous reference from the web.config and it still breaks.

Any Ideas?

Hi,

I downloaded the ASP.NET AJAX Sales Dashboard Application yesterday and installed it in my computer.
However, I'm getting the error below when I try running it. The app's already ORM- enhanced and I've copied the 2010.1.310.2 version of the OpenAccess.dll on the projects bin folder. Could you help me resolve the problem?     

Thanks

Hello Neil,

OpenAccess actually enhances the DLLs each time you compile and run the application in Visual Studio. You are receiving that error because the Sales Dashboard application references a previous version of OpenAccess, and the enhancing application installed on your computer is using a later version of OpenAccess. In order to fix this problem, you should update the references in the Sales Dashboard project to reference the version of OpenAccess you have installed on your system.

I hope this helps.

- Robert

Hello Neil,

From the error description, I assume that you are referencing the Telerik.OpenAccess dll from your GAC, however in the web site Bin folder there is another Telerik.OpenAccess dll. Can you delete this in the Bin folder and see if the error persists?

Hi,

Could you please check if adding the Telerik OpenAccess dlls available in the sample source References/Telerik OpenAccess folder to the web site Bin folder and see if the problem persist?

Also check if the references to the Telerik OpenAccess dlls in the Telerik.SalesDashboard.Data project point to the dlls in the References/Telerik OpenAccess.

Additionally, you can try installing Telerik OpenAccess Q1 2010.

Hello Neil,

To download the desired version of Telerik Open Access, login to your Telerik Account, go to the Free Trials page. Then scroll to the Telerik Open Access ORM section and click on the Older versions link on the right. There you should be able to find the 2010.1 310 version.

I've just started to try and step through the Sales Dashboard demo and I can get it it hit a breakpoint if I use C# -- but the VB one (the one I do all my development in)  -- I can't seem to get a the the breakpoint won't be hit no symbols have been loaded.  I compared both solutions to make sure that silverlight debugging was turned on.

The only things I could see it that that Rootname space is blank on the VB projects where the C# ones the default namespace is populated.  Also when I look at the startup object it says Examples.{App}.CS.App -- in both -- but if you pull down the dropdown it goes away.

I have cleaned the vb solution and deleted tmp files. 

The other thing I did notice maybe is an issue is that Examples.Web is a C# project in BOTH solutions.

This is Q1 2010 SP1 version running on VS2008

Any ideas?

Thanks Mark

Hello Mark,

Actually, there should not be any VB solution within the source code of the application. We only provide C# source code.  If you want to convert certain parts of the app to VB you can use our online cnverter at:
http://converter.telerik.com

Also, could you please provide some more details on the exact scenario at your side? it is possible that we are missing something and we apologize for that in advance. A short screen-play on what's happening on your side would be really helpful.
