The Report toolbar is used to manage dashboards and create new dashboard reports.
The Show Dashboard command toggles whether dashboards should be displayed or hidden for the currently selected log file. If dashboards are displayed, they will appear as tabs next to the Log Data View tab at the bottom of the Log Entry Grid.
All other commands on the Report toolbar will be enabled only if dashboards are currently displayed.
