Example 1: Add a Toolbar Item

The following example shows how to add a toolbar item to the dashboard title. The code snippet below creates a custom button with a popup menu. The DashboardTitleToolbarUpdated event is used to customize the dashboard title. The button belongs to the actionItems collection and is displayed on the right (like the Export To and Parameters buttons).

The image below shows the result:

extensions: {
    'viewer-api': {
        onDashboardTitleToolbarUpdated: function (e) {
            e.options.actionItems.push({
                icon: 'grayTriangle',
                type: "menu",            
                menu: {
                    title: 'Custom Menu',
                    type: 'list',
                    items: ['First Item', 'Second Item', 'Third Item'],
                    selectionMode: 'single',
                    itemClick: function (itemData, itemElement, index) {
                        alert(itemData.toString());
                    }
                }
            })
        },
    }
}

Example 2: Change a Toolbar Item

The following example shows how to change the specific toolbar item. The code snippet below changes a dashboard title:

extensions: { 
    'viewer-api': {
        onDashboardTitleToolbarUpdated: function (e) {
            var caption = e.options.contentItems.filter(function(item) { 
                return item.name === 'dashboard-title'
            });
            if(caption.length > 0) {
                caption[0].text = 'Sales Overview';
            }
        }
    }
}

Example 3: Remove a Toolbar Item

The following example shows how to delete a specific element from the toolbar items collection. The code snippet below removes the 'Export To' button from the dashboard title:

extensions: { 
    'viewer-api': {
         onDashboardTitleToolbarUpdated: function (e) {   
                e.options.actionItems = e.options.actionItems.filter(function(item) { 
                    return item.name !== 'export-menu'
                });
            }
        }
    }
}
