This is a hotfix release of shinydashboard, meant to fix a few edge cases that have surfaced since the last release.
Fixed #214: make sure that the
data-value attribute of
.sidebarMenuSelectedTabItem is always set in the body of the
ensureActivatedTab() function. (#216)
Fixed #217: correct
input$sidebarCollapsed value for edge cases by attaching the change event to the end of the sidebar CSS transitions (instead of when the toggle button is clicked). Also make sure that
input$sidebarCollapsed is set to
FALSE when the app starts up with the sidebar already collapsed. (#222)
This release of shinydashboard was aimed at both fixing bugs and also bringing the package up to speed with users’ requests and Shiny itself (especially fully bringing bookmarkable state to shinydashboard’s sidebar). In addition to the changes listed below, we also added a new “Behavior” section to the shinydashboard website to explain this release’s two biggest new features.
Address #179 support for bookmarking the expanded/collapsed state of the whole sidebar. (commit e71c93f)
Added Shiny input to keep track of which sidebar
menuItem is expanded (if any), which makes bookmarking the exact state of the sidebar trivial. (commit 6901b90)
Addressed #165: added a new optional argument, called
headerText to the
dropdownMenu() function. If provided by the user, this text (instead of the default) will be shown on the header of the menu (only visible when the menu is expanded). See
?dropdownMenu for more details. #207
Split JS files. (commit ea91503). More updates to Gruntfile and structure. (commit 4e80616)
Better shown/hidden mechanic for Shiny inputs inside collapsible
menuItems. (commit 6901b90)
Added hack on adminLTE/app.js in order to make the
slideDown css transitions look reasonable when its content is initially empty (use case is for hidden Shiny outputs that are not rendered until the first time the
menuItem is expanded and reveal them – i.e. first time that
trigger("shown") is called). (commit 25725a6)
Added manual tests for bookmarking and the shown/hidden events that happen on the sidebar. (commit 9e3e55d)
Fixed #71 and #87: detect and enforce selected tab for dynamic sidebar menus by calling
ensureActivatedTab() for these. (commit 9b88a79)
Fixed #127 and #177: previously, if
dashboardSidebar() was called with an explicit
width parameter, mobile rendering would look weird (the sidebar wouldn’t completely disappear when it was collapsed, and content in the dashboard body would be hidden under the still-visible sidebar). (#204)
Fixed #79: Re-enable slight css transition when the sidebar is expanded/collapsed. (#205).
Fixed #89: We claimed that
dashboardPage() would try to extract the page’s title from
dashboardHeader() (if the title is not provided directly to
dashboardPage()); however, we were selecting the wrong child of the header tag object (#203)
Fixed #129: Trigger shown/hidden event for Shiny outputs in the sidebar. (#194)
Fixed #73: add
collapsed argument to
dashboardSidebar(), which allows it to start off collapsed. (#186)
Fixed #62: make images resize when the sidebar collapses/expands. #185
Fixed #176 (making buttons look good on the sidebar) by giving Shiny action buttons and links some margin space. (#182)
Update documentation to newest version of roxygen. (commit #541d3c1)
Addressed #178: switch from
yarn. Also upgraded all yarn packages to the
latest tag (all major changes). #184
Updated to AdminLTE 2.3.11. (#181)
idargument would cause the app to not start, when used with Shiny 0.14.
Added ability to bookmark and restore tabs, when used with Shiny 0.14 and above. (#152, #157)
Fixed issue with R CMD check and Shiny version 0.14.
Updated to AdminLTE 2.3.2 (1ee281b).
Logout panels from Shiny Server Pro were previously not visible, but now they are.
sidebarUserPanel doesn’t have an image, space for the image is no longer allocated.
tabNames are now validated so that illegal characters result in an error early. (#66)
sidebarUserPanel now displays properly. (#70)
radioButtons did not wrap, but now they do. (#60)
Updated to AdminLTE 2.1.2 (406de4e). Please note that some CSS selectors have changed, so if you are using custom CSS, it may require modification. The documentation at http://rstudio.github.io/shinydashboard/appearance.html has some updated examples.
shinydashboard now respects the
Collapse buttons on boxes trigger
hidden events. Previously they did not, which resulted in dynamic content not working for boxes that started collapsed. (#17, #42)
Dynamic menuSubItems now work in the sidebar. (#54)
Arbitrary content may now be used in a
sidebarMenu(), not just
Added options to set the width of
dashboardSidebar(). (#43, #45, #54)
