Element Details: Panel

Available in: Logi Info Source code name: Panel

A dashboard Panel consists of three parts. A title bar that contains a caption and possibly control buttons to edit parameters or remove the panel. An optional parameters section can be expanded by the user to set parameters for the last section - the panel content.
Create a PanelParameters element when the panel content can change based on user-entered input parameters.

Set the Caption attribute to the title of the Panel. Caption can include token variables, but not a formula starting with the equals ("=") sign.

The PanelDescription attribute sets a textual description of the panel. This will appear in the "Change Dashboard" list.

The Image attribute sets an image that will appear on the left side of the "Change Dashboard" list. For the best appearance, images should be less than 200 pixels wide.

The LocalData and DefaultRequestParams may be defined below a panel but they are applied and can be used by entire report definition.

NamePossible ValuesDescription
Controls if the user is allowed to change the name of dashboard panels. Panels can be renamed by the user when the "Rename" menu item is clicked. The panel's caption is switched to a text box and the user can save the value by pressing Enter or clicking outside of the text box. The default is "True". Set to "False" to prevent panel renames.
(Required) The Caption attribute identifies the text to be displayed. For Image elements, Caption specifies the image filename.
(Required) The ID attribute is a pervasive attribute that uniquely identifies an element within a definition file. The ID needs to be a unique value within the definition.
An image filename. The name can come from the images in the support files, or a relative URL within the same web application, or, for IndicatorState elements, a complete file system path.
The minimum height, in pixels. If not set, the minimum height defaults to 100 pixels. In Dashboards, works only for Free-form layout.
The minimum width, in pixels. If not set, the minimum width defaults to 100 pixels. In Dashboards, works only for Free-form layout.
When True, the dashboard panel can be added multiple times to the same dashboard or tab. This is especially useful for panels that have input parameters because the user can show different versions of the same panel with different parameters. Note: To prevent duplicate ID attributes in the HTML output, MultipleInstances automatically appends a unqiue string to many IDs.
With adjustable dashboards, the user can pick from a list of panels. The PanelDescription is text that describes the panel in further detail than the Caption.
When entered, access to this element can be controlled with Logi security. Supply the ID of a right defined in the applications settings’ Security element. Only users that have a right in the SecurityRightID will be able to see the element. Note that when rights come from RightFromRole elements under Security/UserRights, and this element's SecurityRightID does NOT match any of the Right IDs defined in the Settings definition, then the user DOES have access. But when Right IDs are instead derived from RightsFromDataLayer or RightsFromRoles elements, and the user DOES NOT have a matching Right, then the user DOES NOT have access. You can enter multiple right IDs, separated by commas. In this case, the user sees the element if he has any one of the Rights.
Text that appears when the user hovers the pointer over the image or text.
