Dashboards Are For Driving

, 14 Sep 2008
Dashboards are immensely useful not only for business data but also for business applications, but only if they display metrics that can be used to "drive" (or "steer") in real-time.
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace DashboardDemo
    public partial class DetailGridForm : Form
        public DetailGridForm()

        private void DetailGridForm_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            this.dataGridView1.Rows.Add(new object[] { "West Westchester", "400 MW", "2.3%" });
            this.dataGridView1.Rows.Add(new object[] { "South Southampton", "250 MW", "-8.1%" });
            this.dataGridView1.Rows.Add(new object[] { "Lower Upperton", "100 MW", "-4.2%" });
            this.dataGridView1.Rows.Add(new object[] { "Upper Casington", "100 MW", "52.7%" });
