Is anyone aware of a script/method other than plugins for excluding a specific widget when exporting to PDF? I want to exclude a Tabber widget when exporting to pdf. 

Thanks!

Hi @cartercjb ,

You can hide a widget from pdf by using below script. I tested it in a linux based system. Add this script in your dashboard script and update the variable widgetid.

 

dashboard.on('widgetready', function (se, ev) {
	
	widgetid = '3aecd1801eafb16865d4c87lre'
	
	if(ev.widget.oid == widgetid)
	{
		$('[widgetid=' + widgetid + ']').closest('.u-r').height(0)
	}
});

Hi @cartercjb ,

Does the use case refer to exporting via the "Export to PDF" button or to the PDF document that is sent as part of the email attachment?

Hi @Ophir_Buchman - 

This use case is for the normal Export to PDF button. The space highlighted in yellow is the Tabber widget I am trying to exclude from the export.

Hi @cartercjb,

I know you were asking for a non-plugin solution, but we have a plugin that does just this (See https://www.sisense.com/marketplace/hide-widget-row-on-pdf/)

Another way to go is to build the "tabber" into an "Accordion" (which you most likely are already using) which is not opened by default. Exporting the PDF will export it without the data in the accordion.

Any other solution requires integration into the "Export PDF" code - Which is internal

Great solution @harikm007 !!!

Please just note 2 things:

  1. This code hides the entire widget row - So you should place this widget on its own row
  2. This script doesn't effect PDFs sent as email attachments

Also, here is another version of this script offering you to provide an ID list (rather than a single ID):

widgetsToHide = ['614c7929feba1f08d4e71dd4','6197738df7f55b16c058415f']

dashboard.on('widgetready', function (se, ev) {
	
	if(widgetsToHide.includes(ev.widget.oid))
	{
		$('[widgetid=' + ev.widget.oid + ']').closest('.u-r').height(0)
	}
});

YOU, MY FRIEND, @harikm007  are a magic man. I tried to give you Kudos x 100000 but it would not let me.

THANKS!
