  • 1.  Widget interactivity in dashboards

    Posted Thu June 09, 2022 06:54 AM
    Hi, 

    I am on 11.1.7 IF8; I have two widgets on a dashboard - a stacked column chart and a table/list - both using the same package. When I click on a legend item (i.e. selecting a legend item/value) the list is not refreshing to reflect the selection though the filter icon on the list shows the selected value under All Objects filters. Only when I select a bar (one part of the stacked bar) the list is refreshing. Is this the expected behavior? How can I let the list refresh based on the legend item selection?

    Regards,

    Hi Kiran,

    I'm not sure if I can reproduce this issue (and I'm using v11.2.1).

    You find drag your value to the filter area, then choose to add a canvas to your dashboard.

    This might be a workaround, just my 2 cents...

    Best regards,

    Hi Patrick, 

    Thanks for responding. From your screenshot, if you select 2011 or 2012 from the legend of the chart, is the list refreshing to reflect the selection or does it continue to show both 2011 and 2012?

    Regards,

    Hi,
    I just tested this in my 11.1.7 instance. When you select a year from the legend of the chart, that year is *highlighted* in the list if Year is being displayed in the list. If Year is not included in the list, the list is filtered based on the selected year.

    Cheers!

    Hi Mark, 

    Thanks for the response. 

    I am attaching a dashboard spec built using Go Sales(query) samples package. You can see in this dashboard that when you select a product type from legend items in the chart, the list is neither filtering or selecting the matching values. I think the behavior you mentioned is only applicable when there is a measure field in the list.
