I have an existing BI Portal Dashboard, with an parameter page and a requirement to add date range control. The problem is, parameter page (panel/iframe) does not have enough room to allow the date picker to display and changing the dashboard design is not desirable.
I'm wondering if I could add a separate (date range) panel (initially hidden) with the Calendar Control and a date range button to the existing parameter page.
The idea is that when the user selects a "date range" button, the date range panel displays. The user makes their date selections, then selects an OK button on the date range panel which hides the date range panel and refreshes the dashboard, charts and reports with the new date range.
Has anyone accomplished anything like this in the BI Portal?This message has been edited. Last edited by: Don Garland,
Can you add it as a pop up? So when you click on the "date range" button, a panel pops up with your date range selections?
If you are using jquery, look at Dialog . It will do what you need. Otherwise, you can build a div at the end of the page with a display of none. Clicking on the button would change the value of the display to 'inline-block' or what ever you wanted it to be. Using absolute positioning you can have it sit on top of your filters, and then put a "done" or "ok" button in the div to hide the parameters again.
