Creating a New Widget


To create a new widget in a Jedox spreadsheet, open Tools→Widgets→Custom Widget. The following dialog appears: 

The fields in the General tab are described below:

Widget Name Name of the widget. This will also be the named formula by which you could access data received from the widget code (if any).
Content The content (code) of the widget. This can be retrieved directly from an external URL, or you can define the HTML code yourself.
Source The source of the data that you want to pass to the widget (if any). This can be a cell (or cell range), named range, variable, macro function, or a subset list.
Target The target to which the widget will return data. It can be a cell (or cell range), a named range, or a variable.

In the Layout tab, you can toggle the following options:

  • Show borders in user mode
  • Transparent background: if set, the <body> of the document inside the widget should also have transparent background or it should be set to transparent, as in: <body STYLE=”background-color: transparent;”>)

  In the Size and Position tab, you should set the entries in pixels.
