Dashboards & Visualizations

Can I allow a user to change visualizations in a dashboard?

Communicator

I have a timechart that could make sense in a number of different visualizations. Is there a way to create the dashboard panel and add a control so that the person reading the dashboard can change the visualization? I can do it in the editor, but I want something available to the user lets you toggle between "line" and "bar".

You can create a radio button with the options and use that token in your dashboard xml for chart type (need to edit xml)

See this run anywhere sample

<form>
  <label>Dynamic Chart Type</label>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="radio" token="charttype">
      <label>Chart Type</label>
      <choice value="line">Line</choice>
      <choice value="column">Column</choice>
      <choice value="area">Area</choice>
      <default>column</default>
    </input>
  </fieldset>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <chart>
        <search>
          <query>index=_internal | timechart count</query>
          <earliest>-24h@h</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
        </search>
        <option name="charting.chart">$charttype$</option>       
      </chart>
    </panel>
  </row>
</form>

How to use table also as one of the types to these visualizations?

Best method for that would be use a post process implementation with one panel with fixed type as table and other using radio button option. This way you'd run the search just once but populate two visualization with it. See this for more information and example.
