A dashboard is made up of one or more reports. Reports in LogViewPlus are generated by applying a SQL SELECT statement to the currently selected view. This is done by using the Dashboard Report Wizard which is available from the Report Toolbar.
Dashboards organize report items into a table with rows and columns. Report items are inserted into the table with a variable column and row span that allows you to customize how the dashboard is displayed. Dashboard tables are made up of 16 columns. These columns form 100% of the dashboard table width. Rows are sized at 100 pixels per row, depending on your screen DPI settings. A dashboard can contain an unlimited number of rows. The vertical scrollbar will be inserted automatically if needed.
You can drag-and-drop report items in a dashboard to move a report from one area to another. When moving report items the source and destination must be size compatible. Generally this means that both the source and destination have the same column and row span.
Because report data is gathered from the SQL SELECT statement, the information displayed in a report is very flexible. LogViewPlus supports a full range of SQL SELECT commands including data aggregation and manipulation.
The data display area shows the result of applying the data in the current view with a SQL statement and the selected report type. Multiple report types are supported including data grids, pie charts, and bar graphs.
Editing the report allows you to revisit report settings such as the SQL statement used, column and row span, or even the report type.
Closing a report will remove it from the dashboard. Once the report is closed it cannot be recovered.
