[Closed]How to affect multiple targets when clicking in a chart
I am creating a dashboard containing multiple charts and a map object. The The effect I would like to create is for all the charts to update with the data for a particular state when clicked on. I can currently get the action to affect a single chart (with a hyperlink) but would like to know if the above desired action is possible and how it is accomplished.

Thank you

There may be better ways but as the great philosopher, Frank Sinatra, said……… “I did it my way” 

Drill statement in your map.

TYPE=DATA, COLUMN=N2, TARGET='_self', JAVASCRIPT=parent.setControls1(N1 \
&GEOGRAPHY_DISTRIBUTOR_WAREHOUSE_DISTRIBUTOR_WAREHOUSE.QUOTEDSTRING \
&WHAT_CAT.QUOTEDSTRING \
&TIME_DURATIONS_DURATIONS.QUOTEDSTRING \
&TIME_WEEK_WEEK.QUOTEDSTRING), $

Javascript on in your HTML

function setControls1(NEWMAN, GEOGRAPHY_DISTRIBUTOR_WAREHOUSE_DISTRIBUTOR_WAREHOUSE, WHAT_CAT, TIME_DURATIONS_DURATIONS, TIME_WEEK_WEEK) {
IbComposer_setCurrentSelection('inputhidden1', NEWMAN, true);
IbComposer_setCurrentSelection('inputhidden2', WHAT_CAT, true);
IbComposer_execute('pdrill1','graph1');
IbComposer_execute('bdrill1', 'graph2');
}



This ties a pie chart and a bar chart together so they both drill regardless of which one you drilled from.

Thank you for the input. I have two questions.I am still very new to WebFocus development.
What are pdrill1 and bdrill1?
Where does the code for the map object go? Not sure how to insert the code.

Thank you

Figured out the parameters for the ibComposer_execute command.

Still have the question on the code insertion in the map FEX.

Thank you

pdrill1 and graph1 are iframes on the page.
pdrill1 is hidden, graph1 is not.

I have the following

graph1 (pie chart) graph2(hbar chart)

pdrill1 (hidden pie) bdrill2(hidden hbar)


the execute command loads the hidden charts into the visible (graph1) iframe.
