Tag Cloud Selector add-on component for BusinessObjects Dashboards 4.0 SP3 or higher

In this blog, I am going to share the new add-on I just created – a Tag Cloud selector for Dashboards 4.0.

To arrange the labels of different width within the component, I have used the FlowLayout class available here for free.


General Tab

In General tab, there are options for:

  • binding the labels to an excel range.
  • binding the values to an excel range based on which the size of labels vary.
  • binding the tool-tip texts for the labels to an excel range.
  • Insert selected label to a cell in the excel model.

Behavior Tab

In this tab, there is option for dynamic visibility of the component.

Appearance Tab

This tab has options for selecting the label font and color.

How it appears in the canvas?


The full flex project along with the add-on file(xlx) is available here for download.

Happy dashboarding 🙂
