Insert custom comments and link in Dashboard XML

Path Finder

Hi all,

we'd like to insert a custom comment in a dashboard before or after a report?

How can we do? We have to change XML code, but in which mode?

Thank you regards

Btw, the equivalent in advanced xml is StaticContentSample. In the "text" param, you just need to escape the special xml characters:


An example is:

<module name="StaticContentSample" layoutPanel="panel_row1_col1">
    <param name="text">&lt;a name="NowYouCanLinkToThisSpot"&gt;&lt;/a&gt;</param>
