Hide objects if no data

TARGIT 2021 - TARGIT 2022

You can now hide an object if it contains no data. In previous versions you would see the "No data to display with the current selection of criteria" message, which by many end-users erronously has been perceived as an error.

The option is a Visibility option in the Properties Smartpad to 'Hide if empty result'.

A similar option is available also for objects tht works with 'Required criteria'.

Tip: You can design your dashboard in such a way that, as an object becomes hidden, another object, behind the first object, becomes visible to the end-user.

  • Hi Ole

    Is it possible to display a custom message for an object instead of the generic: "No data to display...."

  • Hi Frederik,

    Not directly. But since you can hide an empty object, you can design your dashboard with two objects on top of each other. A data object in the foreground and a text object in the background. When the data object is hidden (due to no data), the end-user will see the text object. And you can type in and format text as you like in the text object.

  • Hi Ole,

    It seems "Insufficient data..." does not trigger the "Hide when empty" feature.
