    Where are the controls that are referenced in the dashboard.config?

    I was looking the dashboard.config but it seems that in default installation there is in no dashboard controls. However, there are references to controls commented out like: 

     <!--
        <section>
        <areas>
            <area>default</area>
            <area>content</area>
        </areas>

        <tab caption="Last Edits">
            <control>/usercontrols/dashboard/latestEdits.ascx</control>
        </tab>
        <tab caption="Latest Items">
            <control>/usercontrols/dashboard/newestItems.ascx</control>
        </tab>
        <tab caption="Create blog post">
            <control>/usercontrols/umbracoBlog/dashboardBlogPostCreate.ascx</control>
        </tab>
    </section>
    -->

    Are these controls existing somewhere?

    I could find couple of Dashboard controls in packages but nothing related to commented dashboard.config controls.

    Controls used to be in the /usercontrols directory, those no longer are. It's only there for 'reference' purposes. Agree it should be documented in a much more clear way than it is right now.

    Baiscally, any user control may serve as a dashboard control. Do you need more info on its configuration or use?

     

    Cheers,

    Hi Dirk

    I understood how it works and I was to get some controls out but I was kind of expecting "Last Edits" since dashboard.config had them.Just confusing a bit agree on documentation.
