Rolling time period using a dimension filter - Application error

Hi All,

I am trying to display rolling 13 months with reference to the month selected in the dimension filter. The code that I am using for the OnApply event of the dimension filter is:

APPLICATION.setVariableValue("ZE_CALMON", DS_ALL_MAIN.getFilterExt("0CALMONTH"));

However, whenever I am using the above or code similar to above I am getting the error "The Application does not exist.....". While processing the current request, an exception occurred which could not be handled by the application or the framework.....

This error is not appearing when I am removing the above is occurring when I write Application.setVariable

I am not getting any code error .....I have tried the option of setting "load in script" to true but of no help.

Any idea why am I getting this error?

Thanks in advance

    Hi Swasti,

    Did you use VariableValueExt?

    Hello Swasti,

    you can try to use my "Simple Date Object" component to roll dates as you want.

    Design Studio SDK: Simple Date Object Component (released in 1.0.1)

    The tricky point is in your scenario to calculate the months based on selection, this can be done via scripting (you would need to implement date logic) or use the component.

    does this help?

    Regards, Karol

    Hi Swasthi,

    Does the Dimension Filter type has function read the runtime selected values. I have a similar requirement where I need to read what is selected at runtime in the Time Dimension(I have Months/Periods).

    I am using the following.

    STR is a string global variable..REVCY_EXP is the datasource for chart and TEST is the datasource for dimension filter field.

    Idea is to capture selected values into STR and pass them to the Chart as the source.

    STR = TEST.getFilterExt("/CPMB/NDD9Q3V");

    REVCY_EXP.setFilterExt("/CPMB/NDD9Q3V", STR); it shows error...

    If you know how to debug the script with breakpoints, can you pls share some tips.

      I did add that statement and it returned me the following

      • VALUE :1415.APR; 1415.MAY; 1415.JUN.

        This is exactly what I want to pass (I selected these 3 time periods in the Time dim) to the chart.

        For passing the above values in the STR variable, I am using this in the Data binding area DataSelection : {"/CPMB/NDD9Q3V": +STR } Does it replace STR variable with all these values ?

        I am trying it anyway. Will update. I am not able to know how I can pass the STR variable into the chart.

        DataSelection : {"/CPMB/NDD9Q3V": +STR } does not work. It gives error. I tried without + sign as well.

        Thanks for the pointer.
