I'm trying to incorporate WF8207.09 fex files into a 9.2 "dashboard". I put dashboard in quotes, 'cause I'm not sure that is what they are called anymore. I'm trying to make a dashboard using the "Assemble Visualizations" option from the plus icon in WF

I've been able to add fex files as new panels. The tricky bit that I cannot figure out is how to use a drop down to update an amper variable. I added the drop down using the gui, but still, I cannot seem to figure out how to update an amper variable used by my fexes. I'm open to use javascript if that is what it will take, but I don't know what that code might look like. I've also been able to add a Submit button to refresh the other panels, but ya, I still can't update an amper variable.

After adding your fexes to the page, do you see the little purple i by the filters icon?

Click on that and you should have the dropdowns added and they would provide selected values to the fexes with the corresponding amper variables at run time. I don't think you get a Submit button by default. The fexes are run when you change a drop down and click off of it.

In an effort to modularize my code, I like to keep the WHERE clauses in a single file, and other files (like the fexes I add to Designer) use -INCLUDE to make use of them. I don't see the filters like you explain it above and I suspect it is because those amper variables being in the those included files. I'll see if modifying the fexes will fix this. I am going to copy the contents of the included files and replace it with the -INCLUDE statement.
