Assign key figures to specific areas of a bullit chart in Design Studio

Is there a way to assign the specific objects of the "setDataSelection" code to specific areas of a chart?

In my specific example, I have a bullit chart which is populated dynamically with different keyfigures based on user-selection. Unfortunately it puts the mesures in the wrong areas, so the chart looks bad.

Any ideas?

Kris - I assume you are using the Infochart bullet chart?

Would the scorecard be a possibility, as shown in Karol's blog here:

Hi Tammy,

Yes, you are right.

I've just looked at the scorecard, and as far as I can tell, I am unable to assign data via setDataSelection or similar on the scorecard. That way I woun't be able to switch between the different keyfigures.


OK, my next suggestion is to look at extensions - for example, search this PDF for bullet charts:

It appears that it will offer more properties on the bullet chart than standard SAP Design Studio does.

For other extensions, see SAP extension directory at


That will be my last resort, I was hoping to do this with the standard components, but it looks like its impossible for now - unfortunately.

I'll post it as an idea on ideaplace, if noone comes up with a solution.

Thanks for your input Tammy.
