How to Show a Secondary Value in an Indicator Based on a Date Filter

This article provides an example solution on how to show a secondary value in the Indicator widget based on the date filter.

This allows you to have multiple dashboard filters but shows the secondary title and value only if the date and time filter is enabled. If it’s not and/or there are other filters enabled then the secondary title disappears.

See it in action below:

How to use it?

  1. Create an Indicator widget and add a value.
  2. Add a secondary value.
  3. Press the 3 dots menu and choose "Edit Script".

  4. Paste the following script and press "Save".


widget.on("processresult", function (widget, query) {
    opMap = widget.indicatorInstance._optionsMap["numericSimple"];
    const { secondaryTitle, secondary } = query.result;

    const secondaryTitleText = secondaryTitle.text;
    const secondaryValue = secondary.text;
    const dashboardFilters = prism.activeDashboard.filters.$$items;

    const dateTimeFilter = dashboardFilters.find(item => item.jaql.datatype == "datetime");
    const otherFilters = dashboardFilters.filter(item => item.jaql.datatype != "datetime");

    if (dateTimeFilter) {
        const hasEnabledOtherFilters = otherFilters.some(filter => !filter?.disabled);
        const isDateTimeFilterDisabled = dateTimeFilter?.disabled;

        if (hasEnabledOtherFilters || isDateTimeFilterDisabled) {
            secondaryTitle.text = '';
            secondary.text = '';
            opMap.borderColor = 'transparent'
        } else {
            secondaryTitle.text = secondaryTitleText;
            secondary.text = secondaryValue;
            opMap.borderColor = 'rgb(215, 215, 215)';


5. Add the filters you need including any date or time filter. The script will show a secondary value only when a date filter is on. In other cases, the secondary value will be hidden.
