    Embedding a dashboard with multiple tabs

    Stuardo Herrera

      I've embedded a dashboard with two tabs in a web page using the embed code provided by the share button, but it only shows one tab. I have already added the parameter: <param name="tabs" value="yes"/>, but it still doesn't work.


      The complete embed code looks like this:


      <script type='text/javascript' src='http://public.tableausoftware.com/javascripts/api/viz_v1.js'>

      </script><div class='tableauPlaceholder' style='width: 1364px; height: 855px;'>


              <a href='#'>

                  <img alt=' ' src='http:&#47;&#47;public.tableausoftware.com&#47;static&#47;images&#47;MC&#47;MCT2PFCDJ&#47;1_rss.png' style='border: none' />



      <object class='tableauViz' width='1364' height='855' style='display:none;'>

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

          <param name='path' value='shared&#47;MCT2PFCDJ' / >

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

          <param name='static_image' value='http:&#47;&#47;public.tableausoftware.com&#47;static&#47;images&#47;MC&#47;MCT2PFCDJ&#47;1.png' / >

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

          <param name="tabs" 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' />


      /div><div style='width:1364px;height:22px;padding:0px 10px 0px 0px;color:black;font:normal 8pt verdana,helvetica,arial,sans-serif;'><div style='float:right; padding-right:8px;'><a href='http://www.tableausoftware.com/public/about-tableau-products?ref=http://public.tableausoftware.com/shared/MCT2PFCDJ' target='_blank'>Obtener informaci´┐Żn sobre Tableau</a></div></div>


      Anyone have any thoughts on the cause and/or solution?

          Hi Stuardo, so far I've found 3 solutions:

          1.- As we talked previously, you could use a web page in a dashboard to link to the webpage given by tableau public (in this case, http://public.tableausoftware.com/views/CNE/AlertaInmediata?:embed=y#1 ), and then embed this "container dashboard" on your webpage.

          2.- Using the javascript API, you could either use buttons or leave the hideTabs parameter. Try copying the following code into an html:



                  <script type="text/javascript" src="http://public.tableausoftware.com/javascripts/api/tableau_v8.debug.js"></script>               



                  <div class='container'>                       

                      <div class='row'>                              

                              <button onClick="switchView('Alerta Inmediata')">Alerta Inmediata</button><br>

                              <button onClick="switchView('Reporte Diario')">Reporte Diario</button>

            <div class='row'><h3 class='offset3 span7 pagination-centered' id='sheetName'></h3></div>


            <div id='viz'></div>


                              var vizDiv=document.getElementById('viz');

                              var vizURL= "http://public.tableausoftware.com/views/CNE/AlertaInmediata";

                              var options= {


                                  height: '1000px',

                                  hideToolbar: true,

                                  hideTabs: false, //si se muestran o no las pestañas a otros viz

                                  onFirstInteractive: function(){

                                      document.getElementById('sheetName') .innerHTML=viz.getWorkbook().getActiveSheet().getName();



                              viz= new tableauSoftware.Viz(vizDiv, vizURL, options);



                                  document.getElementById('sheetName') .innerHTML=event.getNewSheetName();



                              function switchView(sheetName){










          Have yet to find how to do it with the code given by the Share button ><.

          Hope this helps =p

            Hey Stuardo,


            Here is a working example of embedding a dashboard with multiple tabs.


            sandiegohearts.github.io/index.html at master · sandiegohearts/sandiegohearts.github.io · GitHub


            The actual website it is embedded in is: https://sandiegohearts.github.io/

            One caution I tell people is that every link in html code needs to be https and not http or your browser might not allow the code.

              Hi Everyone,


              Does anyone know how to get this to work on Tableau Server with token based Trusted Authentication?
