In this post is described the development of a smart filter using the Pentaho CDE dashboards of the Pentaho Analytics Platform. The smart filter is presented in a first initial version, defined as a single level filter. The post is developed as a step by step description on how to reach the goal.
In this post I would like to share the development of a more advanced filter, different from the default and well-known drop-down menus, check-boxes, ecc. The goal is to make the developers able to design results more advanced and modern, respect to the awful dashboards that sometimes I see. 😉
