    How to show error message in tableau when selecting filter will result in Blank sheet.

      We have one unique requirement where we want to show error message to user if there no items to show on the sheet.


      E.g. In the attached workbook when user is not selecting any filters it will result in blank sheet. Instead of this blank sheet is it possible to show some kind of error message like "Data not available please select valid filters".


      The reason is we may choose to integrate tableau with web application and in that case we want to show error message instead of white space.


      Let us know is there any way this can be done in tableau desktop or server or with tableau java script APIS.


      Attaching the workbook for getting the solution.
