I have taken sample data set to pass the url dynamically like below
Step 1: Drag the created sheet to dashbaord
Step 2: Drag the web Object to Dashboard
Step 3:Go to dashboard , Create URL action and provide the <URL to pass>
Select the source sheet and provide target identifier for URL
Google page render
Linkedin page render
Like this you need to pass the URL Action
Make sure the webobject is left as blank while adding and ur url should be https
Hope this helps kindly mark this answer as correct and helpful so that it will be helpful to others
By deselecting the main worksheet we can make the rest of the worksheets to go blank in the dashboard by enabling 'Exclude all values'
but for making the web-page to go blank there is no such way as of now.
But if we can pass 'about:blank' from another sheet to rest it to blank this can be done by adding one more worksheet but it will increase the number of clicks and the user may not like it.
You can use an action to pop out any object (including a container that contains many objects.)
Are you familiar with popping?

In the attached example (V9.2) I made a sheet that displays 3 URLs. On dashboard 1 I also made a web object. And an action to display the URL.
On Dashboard 2 (copy of Dashboard 1) I added another pop-out sheet. The point of this sheet will ultimately be to "push" the web object into view. When I select a URL from the sheet, you will see the pop-out sheet display. I made it to be longer than the width of the web object. When you clear the selection, the pop-out sheet goes away.
On Dashboard 3 I made a very long container. In it I dragged the pop-out sheet and the web object. Select and de-select a link. See what it does with the web object.
On Dashboard 4 I positioned the container so that it starts way out in negative space. The entire web object hides off the dashboard unless the pop-out sheet displays and pushes it into view.
You can make a whole container as the object to be popped out.
I also attached the xls file I used, though it's nothing special.
Thanks Naveen B for your response
I was able to populate webobject with the selected URL. I was having issue in making the webObject go blank when you unselect [Ex: Website]
What options do we have
After unselecting the URL your web object will go blank it wont show anything unless you select then only web page will render
you make sure that your server trust the IP of the images host server then it will work because http is meant for unsecured so tableau server wont allow unsecured URL
check tabadmin commands to trust the IP
Thank you Joe Oppelt, I have learnt swapping sheets functionality by watching your video.
I was able to work on hiding web objects by following the steps from your attached workbook
