    Default A Dashboard. Or a GUI Builder?

    Hi community,

    I'm thinking about creating a Dashboard extension. What do you think about it? Is there an interest? What features it should have?

    Can you show a screenshot to show exactly what you mean with a 'dashboard'?

    No screenshot yet

    Well, it would be a page space (a desktop) with pre-defined "landing-zones" (divs) in which you could put some content (with drag & drop for convenience). Then you could manage what is on the dashboard: reorder, remove, maybe resize if suitable.

    The other "imagination viewpoint" could be like the dashboard is a blank papers page with some pre-defined spaces for various areas like columns, titles, pictures, etc.

    Then you would be able to fill-in and organize the content of the areas.

    There are many pages on net that use this concept but no link comes to my mind.

    Could others help with a sample links?

    You mean something like http://www.igoogle.com, a portal with different sections containing all kind of data..

    Yes, almost exactly that, Ext integrated with events, user proxy creation, D&D, maybe some integration with InfoPanel/Accrodion, etc.

    Definitely interested - just looking at sticking a dashboard on the front of some of our stakeholder research/management applications. Might be exactly the kind of thing we're looking for..

    Good!

    Do you have any idea about features in (roughly) in the categories: must have, nice to have but can live without, nice but maybe never used?

    You can setup your own categories, of course. This would influence the order of implementation if I decide to tackle it.

    FYI, there will be a layout in 2.0 that does this. But don't let that stop you if you want it now

    That was just an idea so I asked the community... Anyway, thanks for info. Is there any link to a demo to see it?

    We have a (somewhat) working version internally, but it still has some issues and has not yet been fully refactored into the 2.0 layout API. Once we have something worth showing, we'll post it (should not be TOO much longer).
