    • These are the libraries that I have used..

      <script src="resources/sap-ui-core.js" -- this path might change



      data-sap-ui-theme="sap_goldreflection" >


      <!-- add sap.ui.table,sap.ui.ux3 and/or other libraries to 'data-sap-ui-libs' if required -->

    Hi Heath,

    I am really not an expert, but I can share what I have done during self learning.

    As I Understand, you are facing an issue when you comeback to the page where your pie-chart exists.

    I didn't came across this issue, for me the chart always loads fine whenever I navigate to that page.

    I may not point out the exact issue, but please check whether the below code might help you. This is the only code which i wrote to display my pie-chart. - SAPUI 5 - Pie-Chart Issue -- I have pasted the code here which worked for me.

    This is the code on the Index.html

    oShell.addWorksetItem(new WI("wi_test",{key : "wi_test", text : "Test"}));


    oShell.setContent(getContent("wi_home_guest")); // this is my default page


    function selectWorkItem(oEvent) {

    var key = oEvent.getParameter("key");

    var oShell = oEvent.oSource;



    function getContent(key) {

    if (aContent[key]) return aContent[key]; // if content is already created, return it directly

    I don't exactly remember but I guess the above code which i have used to load the content if it is already created

    if (key == "wi_home_cprofile") {


    aContent[key] = sap.ui.view({id:"idNameConnectui51", viewName:"projconnectui5.NameConnectui5", type:sap.ui.core.mvc.ViewType.JS});

    } else if (key == "wi_home_guest") {

    var layout = new c.layout.MatrixLayout();


    var cell = new c.layout.MatrixLayoutCell({colSpan:2});

    var p3 = new c.Panel().setText("Information");

    p3.addContent(new c.TextView({text:"No Information available."}));




    aContent[key] = [ sap.ui.view({id:"idNameConnectui50", viewName:"projconnectui5.guest", type:sap.ui.core.mvc.ViewType.JS}),



    return this.aContent[key];
