    in your demo dashboard you have two small charts on top. How can i use this feature for showing some main figures directly in my own dashboard?

    Thank you

    Content of the dashborad section is defined in user/main_top.html. You can put whatever content you like in it.

    To put an image to dashborad you create a report that produces the image you want and put the URL to the report to main_top.html as an img tag. To get just the image (and not all HTML from the report), put &getchart=1 to the end of URL.

    See more info at:

    Customize myDBR
    Direct URL

    Here is the content of the demo's dashboard (main_top.html). (Just replace the imgX with img. Our forum softwere seems to be too eager to display the image).

    <p><i>(Dashboard allows you to have a instant view on your selected data)</i></p>

    <imgX src="report.php?r=48&u1=1&m=4&h=92907090832600b5990f48a4890677420bb64265&getchart=1" alt="requests" />

    <imgX src="report.php?r=48&u1=2&m=4&h=92907090832600b5990f48a4890677420bb64265&getchart=1" alt="requests" />

    <hr style="width:80%;border-bottom-width: 0px;">

    If you have many users, when selecting the dashboard content, make sure the query is not too heavy on the server side.

    I have used this language in the main_top.html page and I am receiving a broken picture link at the top of my home page.


    Please let me know what I can do to fix this... Thanks,

    One more try - <!-- <imgx src="report.php?r=24&m=1&h=f34b3b4dae0cc4b26c6d9f35a82c20f899f7f993&getchart=1" alt="requests" /> -->

    Got it now...using same strategy as MYDBR support:

    <imgX src="report.php?r=24&m=1&h=f34b3b4dae0cc4b26c6d9f35a82c20f899f7f993&getchart=1" alt="requests">

    If you run your URL directly do you see the chart? The chart report should include only the chart object.

    Yes, it shows up when running the URL is the URL:


    Still broken however on the home page.

    Make sure you are using image-charts.

    Is there any way to differentiate the dashboard so different users see different things?

    E.g. I want to put some admin information on the dashboard so I can see any problems as soon as I login each day, but it is not relevant to any one else. I would also want to have operational content for internal users which is not available for the 3rd-party users.

    the dashboard can include full reports or individual reports elements (like charts).

    To include a full report, use embed_url-function:

    <script type="text/javascript"> embed_url("", false); </script>
    The embed_url will use an Ajax-call to execute the report in user's context, so you can use automatic parameters like inLogin to determine the user.

    The 'embed=1' parameter in URL will just take the report's content skipping things HTML head-section (which is already included) and report headers and footers.
