With a click on the button in Sidebar the Widget panel opens, showing the list of the available widget types that can be added to the dashboard:
In particular, it is possible to choose between:
Creating Chart, Text, Table and Counter widgets the procedure is almost the same as that described for create widgets in maps. The only minor differences are the following:
In dashboards as soon as the user select the widget type, a panel appears in order to select the layer from which the widget will be created
In dashboards the possibility to connect/disconnect widgets to the map is replaced with the possibility to connect/disconnect the Map widgets together or with other widget types (this point will be better explained in Connecting Widgets section)
Creating Map type widgets, otherwise, is a functionality present only in dashboards.
In dashboards, selecting the Map type widget, the following panel appears:
Here the user can:
Go back to widget type selection
Search for a map by writing its title
Select a map (mandatory in order to move forward)
Move forward to the next step
The next panel is similar to the following (in this case an empty map was selected):
Now the user is allowed to add layers to the map through the button:
Once a layer is added to the map widget, it will be displayed in preview and in layers list:
It's now possible to toggle the layer visibility, and set layers transparency (more information in Display options section). Furthermore, by selecting it, new buttons are added to the toolbar allowing to:
Zoom to layers
Access Layer Settings
Adding layers is not mandatory, it is possible to create a widget map using an empty map.
Once the button is clicked, the last step of the process is displayed like the following:
Here the user has the possibility to insert a Title and a Description for the widget (optional fields) and to complete its creation by clicking on the button. After that, the widget is added to the viewer space:
When at least one Map widget is created and added to the dashboard, there's the possibility to add also the Legend widget, available in the widget types list:
Selecting the Legend widget, the user can choose the Map widget to which the legend will be connected (when only a Map widget is present in the dashboard this step is skipped):
Once a Map widget is connected, the preview panel is similar to the following:
Here the user can go back to the widget types section, connect or disconnect the legend to a map and move forward to widget options.
If the last option is selected, a configuration panel similar to the Map widgets one gives the possibility, before save, to set the Title and the Description for the Legend widget.
An example of a Map widgets and a Legend widget is the following:
