After I drag the combo box onto my dashboard, I need to rename it and assign data to it.
I would like my combo box to filter data by date, so I will click the “Settings” button in the upper right corner of the filter, click the “Properties” tab, and type “Select Date” into the combo box’s name field.
Next, I will click the “Assign Data” tab and will drag the “Date” field to the “Column” box.
The “Date” field sorts data by year by default, but I would like to be able to filter data by the individual days of the month. To update my filter, I need to click the “Options” button that appears beside the “Date” field and select “Day.”
Now, my filter has been created, and I can select any date from the combo box in order to see the maximum temperature data for that day.
To test my filter’s functionality, I can click the “Preview” button in the upper right corner of my dashboard and navigate to the combo box.
I can select a date from my combo box, and my widget will show me the maximum temperature for that day.
If I would like to clear the filter, I need only click the “Clear Master Filter” button that appears in the upper right corner of my combo box, and the widget will return to its original appearance.
