DataTile interactive dashboard includes the possibility to set conditions for widgets to be displayed or hidden. These conditions are set as context or anti-context.

A context is a logical expression built on presented control options. Before setting a context you need to create all widgets and controls which will be involved in the context action.

The context menu is on the dashboard settings pane. Here you can add, set and delete contexts.
