Hide/Show Elements on a Dashboard
Update: Better Method
Step 1 – Get the Object Handle
This part is a little tricky, but pretty straight forward. What we need to do is find the handle of the object that we want to hide on this page. You can find this by viewing source on the page, but it’s a lot easier to use tools like Firebug or Google Chrome’s built in Inspect Element feature.
I used Google Chrome’s Inspect Element feature:
- Run your Dashboard like normal in Interactive mode, then right click on an empty space and choose Inspect Element. (If you’re getting a MicroStrategy menu, then right click somewhere else until you get Chrome’s menu).
- Make sure the Elements tab is selected in the bottom viewer area, and as you hover on lines in the code, it’ll highlight the corresponding section on the page above. You’ll have to dig through lots of layers, but just keep expanding the sections when the whole page is highlighted. Eventually you’ll come to the line that highlights just the object you want, in this case, a Grid. Note the ID of the object, in this case, W47.
Step 2 – Add an HTML Container
