standard data binding is used to render the widget information.
But in some case, it will be useful to get more data than the standard one.
The Additional fields are made for that :
- Adding more fields in the tooltip
- Binding linked data to parameters
- More filtering capabilities
In order to use additional fields, you will have to configure a data source to your widget
Using Additional fields
Additional fields works the same way as standard data binding, you will select fields from your data source with an aggregation.
If the widget acts as master widget, the Additional Fields will be visible in the parameter view.
Using a combo box to select batch order will let you filter other data with 1 parameter (the selected data) but if you want to get Start and End Date from your data source, you can add additional fields with start and end date and bind them to parameters. Theses parameters will be use to filter other data sources or widgets.
