A widget is a mechanism that displays information about a dashboard or Portal Site. Example widget types include chart, gauge, and button.
CSM widgets are either:
- Data-driven: Displays CSM or external data (example: Action Catalog, browser, chart, gauge, matrix, search control, search result, Twitter feed, or RSS feed).
- Standard: Enhances design and functionality (example: button, image, link, text, or shape). Buttons and Links can execute a single Action (example: Run an Action).
CSM provides a variety of highly configurable widget types:
|Action Catalog||Displays a self-building and dynamic catalog of executable Actions.|
|Browser||Displays a website or HTML Page.|
|Chart||Displays a data graph. This can be a bar, column, doughnut, line, pie, pipeline, or scatter chart (or combination). The icon varies depending on the type of chart.|
|Command Palette||Displays a list of executable Actions.|
|Filter||Filters other widget data by date, lookup table, or query.|
|Flyout||Displays an HTML page or website that can be collapsed to a tab.|
|Gauge||Displays a single value and optional range data as a graph. Styles include linear (horizontal, vertical, and thermometer), numeric (digital and mechanical), speedometer, and text.|
|Matrix||Displays data from various queries, broken up into rows and columns.|
|RSS Feed||Displays the latest items from an RSS feed.|
|Search||Displays a search control that can be used to run a Quick Search or a saved search.|
|Search Results List||Displays the results of a search, either as a list of links or in a grid.|
|Twitter Feed||Displays entries from a Twitter account or search.|
|Standard Widgets (Shapes, etc.)|
|Button||Button that is capable of executing a single Action when clicked (example: Run an Action).|
|Image||Custom image used to enhance the appearance/usability of a dashboard.|
|Link||Underlined text that is capable of executing a single Action when clicked (example: Run an Action).|
|Text||Text that identifies or enhances other dashboard elements (example: The dashboard itself, area, widget, or group of widgets). A text widget is technically a gauge widget.|
