Dashboard Enhancements

The new Dashboard Compat 4 allows:

  • The dashboard to be Responsive for larger or smaller screens. 
  • Grouping of Charts and Table by using "group" and "endgroup" tags. All the charts/table enclosed with the group tag will be shown in one container.

For example: 

group id=db-1 Three Charts
       chart id=db-5 Pie Chart 1
            row q1.r1 Male
            row q1.r2 Female
            type pie
        chart id=db-6 Pie Chart 2
            row q1.r1 Male
            row q1.r2 Female
            type column
        table id=db-20 "Table"
            row q1.r1 Male
            row q1.r2 Female

 By using layout attribute in a group one can define the layout within the container.

For example:

group id=db-4 layout=2,1 Two Charts in First row
        chart id=db-5 Pie Chart 1
            row q1.r1 Male
            row q1.r2 Female
            type pie
        chart id=db-6 Pie Chart 2
            row q1.r1 Male
            row q1.r2 Female
            type column
        table id=db-20 "Table"
            row q1.r1 Male
            row q1.r2 Female

The keepwith attribute moves the element into the same column as the specified element.

For example:

Table id=db-1 width=6 Left Top
row q1.r1
row q1.r2

Table id=db-3 keepwith=db-1 Left Middle
row q1.r1
row q1.r2
Keepwith Groups example
group id=db-11 layout=1,1  width=6 Left Group
  Chart id=db-7
  type pie
  row q1.r1
  row q1.r2

  Chart id=db-9
   type column
   row q1.r1
   row q1.r2

Chart id=db-10 keepwith=db-11 Right Group
    type pie
    row q3.r1
    row q3.r2
    row q3.r3
    row q3.r4
    row q3.r5
