Some of the functionalities InsightCubes used for ease of navigation, filtering and best use of space in dashboards.
In this blog post you will find the following technical functionalities:

  • Expand/Collapse global filter pane
  • Switch Table/Chart View
  • Library Popup

1. Expand/Collapse global filter pane

Collapsed Global Filter Pane – figure 1.1

In figure 1.1 the Global Filter Pane is collapsed, allowing the Animation bar, Logo and dynamic text widget to be visible.
A filter button is placed in the far right of the screen, once clicked, the global filter pane expands upwards hiding the top most section and downwards pushing the tab strip to the designated pixel placement needed, and the button switches to close Global Filter Pane icon.

Global Filter Pane expanded

When expanded, the Global filter sets all filtering widgets to visible.

Collapse Global Filter Pane on click fx
// expand global selections section
SHAPE_Top_pane_hide.setVisible(true);
// first command is to set the global panel and tabstrip to the correct height
Panel_Context.getLayout().setHeight(145);
Panel_Context.getLayout().setTop(5);
TabStrip.getLayout().setTop(155);
Side_Popup.getLayout().setTop(155);
ICO_Chart.getLayout().setTop(165);
ICO_Table.getLayout().setTop(165);

this.setVisible(false);

Panel_Dimension_Filter.setVisible(true);
Panel_6.setVisible(true);
BTN_Expand_Panel_Context.setVisible(false);
BTN_Close_Panel_Context.setVisible(true);
Panel_SettingsGroup.setVisible(true);

2. Switch to Table/Chart view

On run time, our dashboard is set to show the reports (tables), so we have the Chart icon set to visible and the table icon set to invisible on initialization. This setting will change upon click, and reverse the visibility according to which view is showing from the last click.

The icons can be placed on the Tab Strip to have them visible at all times, and help make use of any static space available on the dashboard.
