Dashboarding Tools

InetSoft's dashboarding tools offer a high level of control over graphical display missing from most other applications. View the example below to learn more about the Style Intelligence solution.

Sliders and Spinners are interactive elements which are typically used to enter numeric data into an Embedded Table in the underlying Worksheet. Sliders and Spinners differ only in appearance.

To create a Spinner, follow the steps below. (The Slider is identical.)

  1. Drag the ‘Spinner’ element from the component tree into the Viewsheet grid. This creates an empty Spinner in the Viewsheet grid.
  2. Right-click on the Spinner, select ‘Properties’ from the context menu. This opens the ‘Spinner Properties’ dialog box.
  3. Under the General tab, specify the ‘Minimum’ and ‘Maximum’ values.

  • If you will use the Spinner to control dynamic properties of another element, follow these steps:
    1. Enter a ‘Name’ for the control. This is the name by which the control is identified in dynamic property menus. (See Using Input Controls to Set Properties.)
    2. Click ‘OK’ to finish. Note: If you plan to use the Slider or Spinner to set dynamic properties, you do not need to specify an Embedded Table in the Data tab.
  • If you will use the Spinner to control values in a Worksheet Embedded Table, follow the steps below:
    1. Select the Data tab.
    2. From the ‘Table’ list, select an Embedded Table Data Block in the linked Worksheet.
    3. From the ‘Column’ list, select the desired field of the Embedded Table.
    4. From the ‘Row’ list, select the row of the table to which the input control should provide data.
    5. Click ‘OK’.
