Filtering

The Dashboard Designer allows you to apply filtering to Object Data Source data.

Apply Filtering

To apply filtering to a data source, click the Filter button in the Data Source Ribbon tab.

DataSourceFiltering_FilterButton_Ribbon

This invokes the Filter Editor dialog that allows you to build filter criteria:

DataSourceFiltering_FilterEditor

TIP

Documentation: Filter Editor

To clear the data source filter, use the Clear Filter button in the Data Source Ribbon tab.

To specify the filter criteria in code, use the DataSource's Filter property. You can assign a string displayed in the Filter Editor's bottom text panel to that property.

Pass Parameter Values

You can use the Filter Editor to filter a data source according to the current parameter value. See the Passing Parameter Values topic for details.
