How to show a detailed view of a widget in JavaScript embedding application

You can display a detailed view of a widget in a JavaScript-based embedding application by utilizing URL linking support in the Bold BI application.

Follow the steps below to achieve this,

  1. First, you need to create and publish a main dashboard with the required widgets on the Bold BI server.

    Main Dashboard

  2. Next, create a detailed information dashboard with the necessary widgets and publish it. Once completed, copy the dashboard’s ID and paste it into the URL text box of the Link Property for the corresponding widget in the main dashboard. Select Pop up as the Target.

    Detailed Dashboard Id

  3. Afterward, embed the main dashboard in your application using the Dashboard ID by following the steps mentioned in this section.

  4. Next, you need to add the beforeNavigateUrlinking (/embedding-options/embedding-sdk/embedding-api-reference/events/#beforenavigateurllinking) event to handle and display detailed information of a widget in a pop-up window. This event will be triggered before the URL linking navigation is invoked.

Find the sample code below to display a detailed view of a widget in a pop-up window:

var dashboard = BoldBI.create({ 
beforeNavigateUrlLinking: function (arg){
    arg.cancel = true;
    var targetContainer = $('<div id="ulrLink_target"></div>');
    var dlgDiv = $('<div id="sample_dialog"></div>');
    var dialogHeaderName = arg.linkInfo.url === '7efc0299-90c1-46c5-b20b-3b1023d30387' ? 'Post Growth Analysis' : arg.linkInfo.url === 'dc6ea49d-a74b-448c-b272-e370b1376ab4' ? 'User Growth Analysis' : arg.linkInfo.url === '433636b5-df4a-4ba9-a854-e824b46ac434' ? 'Post Per User Analysis' : arg.model.dashboardName; // This code will set Title for the details information window based on the linked dashboard ID
    var dialog = new window.ejs.popups.Dialog({
        header: dialogHeaderName,
        width: window.innerWidth - 70 + 'px',
        showCloseIcon: true,
        isModal: true,
        target: document.getElementById('ulrLink_target'),
        height: '750px',
        content: '<div id="urlLinkDbrd"></div>'
    $('#ulrLink_target .e-dlg-content');
    var urlLinkDbrd = BoldBI.create({
        serverUrl: serverUrl,
        dashboardId: arg.linkInfo.url,
        embedContainerId: "urlLinkDbrd",
        embedType: BoldBI.EmbedType.Component,
        environment: BoldBI.Environment.Cloud,
        width: window.innerWidth - 100 + "px",
        height: '650px',
        expirationTime: 100000,
        authorizationServer: {
            url: authorizeUrl
        dashboardSettings: {
            showHeader: false
  1. After completing this task, when you click on the corresponding widget, you can view the detailed information of the widget in a pop-up window with the assigned title, as shown in the screenshot below.
