Metrics widget controlled with Date Range selector #2315

Is it possible to control the Metrics widget with a date range selector and also remove the date selector of the metric? I basically just want to keep the functionality of showing the current data VS last period...

Or do i need to create a custom text panel?

Here's a screenshot of what i want to do :

Instread of using metrics, You may use the SimpleCard via KWidget like following:


class OrderNetMetric extends \koolreport\dashboard\widgets\KWidget
    protected function onCreated()

    protected function onRendering()
        $range = $this->sibling("DateRange")->value();
        $value = Incognito::rawSQL("
                orderTotal - orderTax - orderShipping - orderShippingTax - cartDiscount - cartDiscountTax - refundAmount AS orderNet
                transactionDateTimestamp between '" . $range[0] . "' and '" . $range[1] . "'	
        ->getScalar(); //Query to get value only

            "title"=>"Order Net"
        return true;

We need a coma after "title"=>"Order Net"

Is there a way in the dashboard where i can just right some PHP and SQL and echo the values? Kinda like a VIEW in the normal KoolReport? Where you can write PHP and HTML...

Sorry i don't know if i'm clear

Yes, it is possible, you can use the CustomBoard in which you have full control of the view, you can use HTML or PHP or any KoolReport widget there. It is designed following MVC pattern. The CustomBoard is the closest to the normal KoolReport.
