Viewing an element:

To view a certain element, click the element's symbol in the Dashboards View. This will open the element in the Measure View. Likewise, an element's information items can be viewed by clicking the information item once. If an element has references to another scorecard, you can open the target scorecard by clicking the name of the reference at the upper left corner of the element.


Note: If the model has links to QPR Modeling Client views, the links are visible only if the corresponding QPR Modeling Client model is currently loaded into QPR Portal memory. One way to ensure this is to open the model in the Processes tab. Another possibility is to set all models to be loaded to memory in QPR Configuration Manager. However, this might have performance implications in environments with lots of large models.


Navigating the View Using the Navigation Toolbar


The Dashboards View has a floating navigation toolbar for easier navigation. In the case the toolbar is not visible and you want to use it, right-click on the view and select "Show Navigation Toolbar" from the pop-up menu. Note that the navigation toolbar is available only for QPR Metrics dashboards, i.e. dashboards created with QPR Modeling Client are navigated similarly as QPR Modeling Client process maps. The toolbar can be freely moved anywhere in the view by pressing down the left mouse button, dragging the toolbar to the desired position, and releasing the button. The toolbar has the following buttons:



Scroll. There are two arrows for all four main directions. Clicking the small arrow scrolls the view to the selected direction a shorter distance, while the larger arrow scrolls a longer distance.


Original View. Returns the view to the state it was in when you opened the view.


Move. Click this button to switch to the moving mode. After clicking the button, you can move the dashboard in the view.


Fit to View. Centers the dashboard to the screen and zooms it to the largest possible size where the whole dashboard is still visible.


Zoom In/Out. Click the + button to zoom in the view and the - button to zoom out the view.


Close. Hides the navigation toolbar. The bar can be hidden also by selecting "Hide Navigation Toolbar" from the pop-up menu that can be accessed by clicking the right mouse button in the view. The toolbar can be shown again by selecting "Show Navigation Toolbar" from the aforementioned pop-up menu.


Note that the toolbar or the pop-up menu items related to the toolbar do not work with all SVG viewers, or with Silverlight. Refer to QPR Administrator's Guide for more information.



Navigating the View Without the Navigation Toolbar


In the case the navigation toolbar is hidden, the following navigation possibilities are available:

To move the entire element hierarchy in the window, hold the Alt key and drag your mouse across the view.
