How to add your personal PowerBI Dashboard as a system dashboard

Struggling with SharePoint Field Controls (BooleanField)

In my code-behind I tried to set the CssClass property of a
Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls.BooleanField field during Page_OnLoad.
During a debug session I could find out, that this control's CssClass property is "ms-input" by default.

I overwrote it by different class name.

SharePoint 2010: Bug in Advanced Search Webpart

I turned on the debugger to find the place where the error appeared:
It crashed in the method "ComposeTextSectionQuery" because the hidden fields won't be rendered and therefore the attempt to access "elements.PhraseQueryTextBox.value" will result in the error mentioned above.
I thought this was fixed with MOSS2007 already. Is Microsoft going steps backward with SP2010? I hope this will get fixed soon!
