Composite Dashboard Tables - Users can create composite dashboard tables using InetSoft's award-winning dashboard software, an interative data mashup reporting application that is available as a stand alone product or embeddable solution. When you select a Composition Table (Joined Table or Concatenated Table), the Worksheet displays a set of arrows that indicate the table's dependencies. For example, when you click on a Joined Table, the arrows indicate the two Data Blocks are joined to produce the selected table. In some cases, you may need to change the source of a Composition Table after you have already created the table. For example, when you originally created the Composition Table, you might have used a source Data Block (e.g., Embedded Table) containing some prototype or placeholder data. Later, when the production data is available, you need to replace this prototype Data Block with the Data Block containing real data. To change the source of a Composition Table from one Data Block to another, follow the steps below: Note: The new Data Block must be compatible with the Data Block it replaces. See below...

Controlling Dashboard Assets - Using InetSoft's dashboard software allows users to control their dashboard assets for high level interactivity and customization. When you drag an asset from the Asset Repository into a Worksheet, the imported asset is a copy that remains linked to its own defining Worksheet. When you make changes to the original asset, the changes are propagated to all linked copies. This default behavior is called “Auto Update.” • To disable Auto Update, click the 'Disable Auto Update' button in the asset title bar. • To re-enable Auto Update, click the 'Enable Auto Update' button in the asset title bar. Assets can be assigned a specific scope, which determines their accessibility to different users. Assets can be stored under one of the following three scopes: • Global scope: Assets saved under the Global scope are available to all of the users and reports in the system. • User scope: Assets saved under the User scope can be accessed only by the reports and Data Worksheets that share the same user scope. User scope is only available in the Visual Composer. • Report scope: Assets saved under Report scope can be accessed only by the associated report. Report scope is only available for asset storage when the report is open in Report Designer, and Asset Composer is launched from within Report Designer...

Controlling Dashboard Features - To alter the appearance of chart axes, use the Chart's setScale() method to assign a new Scale object. For example, you can replace a linear scale with a logarithmic scale, show or hide tick marks, display axis labels at top or right, change the label font and color, etc. Consider the following example. This creates a basic bar chart displaying the dimensions 'State' and 'Quantity'. Follow the steps below to experiment with modifying the chart's axes: 1. Create a new logarithmic scale using the LogScale object, specifying 'Quantity' as the field on which the scale is based...
