    Tableau8 Embedding options

    Peter Maslin



      i want to ask if its possible to combine the new enhanced javaapi with the object model i.e

      this one.

      <object class="tableauViz" width="304" height="995" style="display:none;">

                <param name="host_url" value="http%3A%2F%2Fpublic.tableausoftware.com%2F" />

                <param name="site_root" value="" />

                <param name="name" value="Book2_673&#47;Dashboard1" />

                <param name="tabs" value="yes" />

                <param name="toolbar" value="yes" />

                <param name="animate_transition" value="yes" />

                <param name="display_static_image" value="yes" />

                <param name="display_spinner" value="yes" />

                <param name="display_overlay" value="yes" />

                <param name="display_count" value="yes" />

                <param name="display_share" value="no"/>



      and then access the object to pass java commands to it , using the new api, i have tried using it and referencing the


      script src="http://<taburl>/javascripts/api/tableau_v8.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


      but it doesnt seem to draw the chart properly, please let me know if this is possible , the reason i need it is that its easier to dynamically add the objects to the page than it is to do the javascript.
