    Getting selected values

    Arif Zaidi

      Hello all,

       

      I am currently researching the possibility to grabbing data from the Tableau report(s) via the JavaScript API but the closet I can get to grabbing values from a graph after filtering is selecting the value via the selectSingleValue() method.

       

      For example: JavaScript API Tutorial

       

      In the API tutorial tab called 'Select'. One of the examples selects the row "Marcao Sao, China". Is it possible to extract that numerical value of $52.0k ?

       

      I have tried looking into the Objects returned (via FireBug) but I cannot seem to locate the right object. My recent location was in getActiveSheets().

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

       

      Thank you
