Creating Dashboards

Creating new dashboards is really easy. You just need to set the $.ig.RevealView.Dashboard property to a new instance of a $.ig.RVDashboard object.

Start by defining a <div> element with the id set to revealView:

<div id="revealView" style="height: 800px; width: 100%;"></div>

Next, in JavaScript, set the $.ig.RevealView.Dashboard property to a new instance of a $.ig.RVDashboard object:

var revealView = new $.ig.RevealView("#revealView");
revealView.dashboard = new $.ig.RVDashboard();

Run the application and you will be prompted with a new, empty, dashboard.

As you can see, while this gives you a new dashboard instance to use, unless you have provided a data source to the $.ig.RevealView for your dashboard to use, your end-users will not be able to create any new visualizations in the new dashboard.
