Set gadget configuration parameter

Set gadget configuration parameter

Hi,

I have a gadget that has a configuration parameter "dataset" identifying the thing it should display. I can add this gadget to the dashboard, but how can I set the configuration parameter (either UI or via script), so that the gadget is properly configured on startup?

For test purposes I can embed this gadget into a static mashup and bind the configuration parameter. This works fine, but for the dashboard this needs to be dynamic and set by the user.

EDIT: I was able to call DashboardFunctions.AddDashboardItem and set the parameters argument to my desired params. I do this in a scripted call. This works for me.

Thanks. Much appreciated!

Hi Dwight,

What datashape did you utilize for the dashboard parameters, I'm currently trying to use DashboardItemParameter.  If you have a sample of your code that shows the parameter infotable setting that would be of great help.

Thanks,

Keri

nevermind, I had it right, as when I show the edit parameters, it is shows me the value I assigned, oddly in 7.3 when you display the value on the screen it isn't showing as actually set like the edit parameters is showing.
