Adding and Editing Panels
A Microreact project comprises any number of customisable panels that interact with each other.
Each panel is configurable using the
button found in the top right of the panel.
A panel can be temporarily maximised using the
icon and then minimised again to show all panels. This allows deeper investigation and interaction with a single panel, while also allowing more panels to interact on a single dashboard.
The same menu is used for both adding (creating) new panels and editing existing panels. To do either, click the pencil icon (add or edit views button)
in the project controls toolbar (top right of view), which brings up the following menu:
- Drag the grey rectangle and drop it onto the area of the page where you want the new panel to be added.
TIP: To overlay on an existing panel so that only one of them is visible at a time, allow the grey box to totally overlap with the existing panel. Otherwise, the new panel will take half the space and the existing panel will take the other half (as in the image below)
- You can click the
Xbutton in the "add" dialogue (or press the Escape key) to cancel.
- Adjust panel sizes as needed by dragging their edges.
- Configure the panel as described in the following section.
To edit the data for an existing panel, you can either
- 1.click the hamburger icon on the panel you want to edit, and select "edit" from the popup menu, or:
- 2.Click on
add or edit panelsbutton (pencil icon) from the project controls toolbar
Edit Existing Panels
- 2.Choose the panel you want to alter
- Edit the panel's data settings:
See silent video below for a demo.
Panels can be moved by clicking on the Title lozenge (i.e. where it says "Slicer", "Tree", etc by default) and dragging to the desired location. . The darkened border will show where the panel will go when the dragging is let go. If an entire other panel is framed, then the panels will overlay one another. This is a good way to save space or to hide panels that are irrelevant for a saved view.
Panels can be resized. Click & drag the edge of a panel to change the width or height of the panel. Remember that you can also maximise a panel temporarily.
Panels can easily be renamed to clarify their contents. This is especially helpful when a view contains more than one panel of the same type. The name added here will show up in the "Add or edit panels" listing.
To delete an existing panel:
- Click on add or edit panels button (pencil icon) from the project controls toolbar
Edit Existing Panels
- Choose the panel you want to delete (e.g. Map)
- Click the
Removebutton under the list of panels.
