I am trying to "beautify" some reports by adding rectangles, lines and images. Can I set up these elements not to be selectable by the users? For instance if I place a rectangle as a page frame and if the user selects it, the rectangle gets the focus and one cannot select any of the other visuals on the page.
Solved! Go to Solution.
@Tsanka Yeah, I like your idea, and I agree you should have more control over the shapes as permanent background pieces.
You can do a couple things now to get "close" to what you want.
You could make the shape, and have the "top" visual cover it completely. That way the user can't click on it.
Use the new BackGround color formatting to change the entire page color. (Click on any part of the page (not visual) and click the paintbrush. you may already know about this.
Other than that, submit an idea - I'd vote for it.
Yes, now you can achieve this by setting the visual header options
I am still not sure how this can be acheived. Can someone provide more detail solution? I disabled the headers, but the widgets are still selectable and can pop up to the front hiding other widgets behind it.
Ok I figured out the workaround. Since it is disabling selection of visual is not possible, use the shape widget to build the background of a filter pop up but add a bookmark action to the background shape widget where it will show the book mark page you want to show. So even when the background is clicked the action will take you right back to the screen with all widget showing the correct Z axis and the background shape will never be able to come forward. I will post up a sample pbix file if my description is not clear here. Let me know, and hope this helps.
