    Creating a new widget

    Hello guys,


    I would like to divide my mash-up to 2 parts.

    On the left side, dashboard with 16 gauges.

    On the right side a web-frame that displays an html page for each gauge that you click on from the left side.

    how should i do that?


    thank you,


    Gil.

        I would look into the use of a Repeater with Selection enabled to do this in an efficient way.

         

        Else you can overlay a hidden button on top of the Gauge which feeds the link to the web-frame

        The  biggest challenge you have going this route, is the fact that you have to somehow come up with some client side logic using the expression widget/validation widget and some parameters to get only 1 final result to feed into the web frame.

        So the repeater is a much better way to go.


        There may be some other solutions possible

            Hello PaiC,

             

            Thank you for your help.

            Unfortunately the repeater isn't the way I'm looking for. As for the hidden button, it is a good way, but it canceling the responsiveness of the mash (by default, I may have to use this way).

            Is there a possibility to create a new gauge widget with an extension of clicking by a SDK?

                Hi Gil,

                 


                you can always create your own widgets if you have that need. You can take a look at the Gauge and Button code to use that as a basis to create your own.

                Please be sure to create it as a new extension vs. a modification of the existing widget. You can more information on this in the Wiki.
