Visualforce Dashboard

Is there a way to reconstruct/recreate a dashboard in a visualforce page?

 

I am happy with all of the standard Salesforce dashboard components but I need to display them in a way other than the standard three column format. Is this possible? We have several large flat screen monitors posted on our sales floor but the three column layout doesn't use all of the horizontal real estate on the screen and some of the componenets are cut off becaue there isn't as much vertical space. 

 

I essentially need to restyle the existing dashboard to fit the horizontal layout of the monitors. Our execs are requesting more visual metrics and they will not be visible in the standard layout. If anyone can give me some suggestions or point me to some code samples I'd really appreciate it.

 

Full disclosure: I am not a coder. I know enough HTML and CSS to be dangerous and I can implement/tweak just about any Javascript I find out in the wild. Thanks in advance.

Dashboards are going to be incorporated into Visualforce pages in the near future. As of now, it is not available. Check the official note here. http://blogs.developerforce.com/tech-pubs/2011/09/introducing-visualforce-charting.html

 

Meanwhile, you can use jquery to achieve what you want. Here is an example of how to do it http://www.forcetree.com/2011/03/dashboards-in-visualforce-page-cool-way.html
