Hello All,

I am new to customising openstack so was hoping someone could point me right direction? I am following a guide called 'Building on Horizon' (sorry I cant post a link due to being new to the forum). I am following the code steps through to create a very basic Panel and DashBoard to point to my ticketing software.

I have created a dashboard running:

./ -m startdash MyAccount

This created me a nice folder structure. I then add the following code to my

from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _

import horizon

class Myaccount(horizon.Dashboard):
    name = _("Myaccount")
    slug = "myaccount"
    panels = (invoices,)  # Add your panels here.
    default_panel = 'invoices"  # Specify the slug of the dashboard's default panel.


This is all well and good. Now I go to create my Panel called 'invoices' by running the following:

./ -m startpanel invoices --dashboard=MyAccount --target=auto

When I run the command, I receive teh following error:

NameError: name 'invoices' is not defined

Do I have to define my 'invoices' panel in before I create it? Or is this a Chicken and Egg issue?

Thanks in advance :)

Has anyone seen a way for me to add this extra dashboard?
