Dsubts in Dash boards. Please help

Hi Everyone,

I am new to this site and new to BO as well. I started Dsahboards sample examples and have many doubts:

1.In "Dual Axis" sample how to take secondary value Y axis?

2.In "Dynamic Selection" sample how to connect all 3 components?

3.In "Filter rows" sample data selection was not taken for total data. What is the reason for selecting part of data?

4.In "Check box" sample status of key value is taken as 1, then only we get the result. what is the reason for giving only 1.

I got few more but please answer me these.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Kalyan,

    As others mentioned these are basic features and will get to know once you start working on the dashboards. you can also learn all the features by looking at the sample dashboards provided with the tool.

    Find below the answers for your queries:

    1.In "Dual Axis" sample how to take secondary value Y axis?

    I hope you are looking to plot the values in Z axis. for that you need to select the "secondary axis" radio button on the general properties of the chart component. Z axis is not applicable for all the components.

    Component Properties > General > Data> Plot Series on :> Secondary Axis

    2.In "Dynamic Selection" sample how to connect all 3 components?

    If you want to control multiple components with the single selection you need to write the forumals in Excel cells and map the final output cell to the Dynamic Visibility option of each component.

    Example : If We have two components i.e. 1. Pie Chart and 2. Line Chart, want control the display of these components using radio button. we acheive by doing the below steps.

    Use Radio button selector component and map the values like Pie and Line. This Radio Button selection output should point to same cell in Excel spread sheet.

    Sample Data for Radio button component:

    Pie 1

    Line 2

    If select pie chart radio button value 1 will update in the destination cell and if you select Line radio button value 2 will be updated in the destination cell.

    Go to the components and map the dynamic visibility option to the above radio buttion destination cell and input the values accordinly to display one component at a time.

    For Pie Chart Component : Dynamic visibility : Cell Value = 1

    For Line Chart Component : Dynamic visibility : Cell Value = 2

    After following the above steps go to the preview mode and test the display of the components.

    3.In "Filter rows" sample data selection was not taken for total data. What is the reason for selecting part of data?

    That might be the limitation of Number of rows in Excel options.

    You can check this in following path : File > Preferences >Excel Options > Maximum number of rows

    4.In "Check box" sample status of key value is taken as 1, then only we get the result. what is the reason for giving only 1.

    In the sample they explianed about the simple behavior of Check box i.e Checked and Unchecked.

    They mapped the destination cell to get the selected value.

    In the sample if the check box is checked it will insert 1 in the destination cell else 0 value.

    In case if we need mupltiple check boxes that time we need to give unique number for each check box and identify which one is selected in the run time.

    I hope this helps.
