    Passing params from a form / submit webpage into Tableau using URL params

    Reginald Green

      Hello Everyone,


      Can someone point me to examples of where a Tableau dashboard has been embedded within a submittable webpage? Initially, I am trying to develop a web page that has a single textbox and submit button; On form submit, I want to pass the value entered in the textbox into a Tableau dashboard as a URL parameter.


      I have a feeling that I can do the above using  an IFrame and the Tableau Javascript API; I have looked at the examples provided in the Tableau Server, but they are not that substantial.


      Any help will be greatly appreciated.

       

      PS all the scripting in the page needs be done in Javascript.
