Binding dashboard items to data

Dashboard items must be bound to data source fields to display data.

Each kind of dashboard item has a specific set of data sections such as ValuesArguments and Series in the chart, Columns in the grid, and ValuesColumns and Rows in the pivot grid. Each data section corresponds to a particular dashboard item area or element, and should be mapped to data to be displayed within this area/element.

Mapping is performed using special objects called data items. A data item identifies data binding. When created, a data item is mapped to a data source field, and is then assigned to a specific dashboard item's data section. As a result, the dashboard item is bound to the data source field.
