Using dockable windows in the dashboard designer

Contents[Hide]

1. Overview

A set of tabbed windows are docked along the bottom and right sides of the Dundas BI Dashboard Designer screen.

2. Expand and collapse

By default, the windows docked on the bottom of the designer screen are collapsed (e.g., the Parameters window), while the ones docked on the right are expanded (e.g., the Explore window).

When the windows are collapsed, click any of the tabs to make it the active one and expand the related windows.
