Action on a symbol does not work in the IlvDashboardDiagram

Technote (troubleshooting)


Why action on the symbol does not work in the IlvDashboardDiagram?


In the Dashboard Editor, an URL, pointed to an external dashboard, is set on the symbol contained in the original dashboard so that the external dashboard will be displayed when clicking on the target symbol. It works fine in the Dashboard Editor. However, nothing happens when clicking on the target symbol in the JViews application.


This behavior occurs because by default, there is no interactor set on the IlvDashboardDiagram. Accordingly, the symbol does not received any mouse event.

Resolving the problem

In order to display the external dashboard when clicking on these target symbols, you must set the ilog.views.dashboard.IlvDashboardInteractor object on the view of the IlvDashboardDiagram:

diagram.getView().setInteractor(new IlvDashboardInteractor());
