I have two custom dashlets, each has its own controller and each of them their own view(in a main dashboard). I want to execute a function of Dashlet 2 from Dashlet 1 and send an object.


One option is through events, but how can be implemented between custom events that can communicate dashlets?


One option is to loosely coupled components that is very common in object-oriented-programming, but in SugarCRM (Javascript / Backbone) how this is possible?



Dashlet Uno

initDashlet: function(options) {
  var eventoPersonalizado = {};
_.extend(eventoPersonalizado, Backbone.Events);
 disparaEvento: function () {

var objeto={}; = "10000"; = "SugarCRM";


Dashlet Dos

initDashlet: function (options) {
  this.context.on('eventoPersonalizado', function (link) {
  console.log("Mensaje desde dashlet uno");
