How can I Launch a Dashboard into an IFRAME window?
Customers may want the ability to add multiple iDashboards charts or dashboards to a webpage. This can be accomplished using standard web technology and a special URL.
iDashboards has the ability to be embedded into webpages. Using the "Embedded Viewer Mode" for embedding a chart or dashboard in another web page, such as a company intranet or portal page. A Public Access user account is required for it to function. It is designed to maximize the use of screen space; therefore there is no list of category drop-downs across the top of the interface, nor is there a footer bar across the bottom. A single chart or dashboard is always displayed as well as no open dashboard bar at the bottom of the screen, and the only way to open additional dashboards is through drill-downs or other links. The Admin Manual has details regarding the setup for this feature.
The following example are formatted for how they would look in your source code:
Your links must have the ‘target=”Frame_Name”’ in the source code:
<a href="http://gallery.idashboards.com/preview/viewer?guestuser=embeduser&dashID=244" target="dash_frame">City Planning</a>
Your iframe must have the ‘name=”Frame_Name”’ tag in the source code:
<iframe scrolling='no' frameborder='0' width='1300' height='700' name="dash_frame">
