How to use custom visual "swDataTextBox"

Hi,

 

There is a new visual called "swDataTextBox".

 

I can use it to present formatted text, table etc. 

I find it very useful.

 

However, I need help to figure out how to combine the text with measures and system fields like logged user etc.

 

Regards,

Tamir

I figured this out-  you need to stringify it to JASON - here's my working example:

 

In Data tab, I have filtered the following string:

 

var data =  [{"OrgLevel":"Corp"}];

 

Editer code:

var json = JSON.parse(JSON.stringify(data));
//var json = JSON.stringify(data);

params = {
org: json[0].OrgLevel 
};

 

It's making OrgLevel an object and displaying its value....

 

You can build on top of that!

Did not understand the answer...

 

Which are the measure? columns/table reference?

Not sure what's not clear - 

 

1st - you can drop a measure/column that you want to be able to reference dynamically in the visual

2nd step - change the code that they have pre-populated with your own (basically, you need to call your data variable in parameter) - I've given an example There's no table reference - only column that you drop into the visual.

 

Let me know which info you need. Thanks!
