Design Studio 1.4 CSS of SDKs is not loaded correctly on Mobile BI App

Hi Design Studio friends,

after migration of Design Studio 1.3 SP0 to Design Studio 1.4 SP0 Patch 1 we get the following issue.

When executing any application via SAP Mobile BI App (on iPhone or iPad) the CSS information of our SDK components are not loaded correctly.

When execution the same application on BIP via Web-Browser everything looks fine.

Do you have any idea if there is something to do in our SDK components or is it a bug of the Mobile BI App.

With the BIP AddOn Design Studio 1.3 SP0 all of our SDK components work correctly on iPhone or iPad.

We are using BIP 4.1 SP4.

Many thanks for your support and any ideas

Kind regards

Patrick

    Issue is solved by Design Studio 1.4 AddOn Support Package 1 for BIP.

    Hi Patrick,

         We are facing the same issue here with the Mobile BI app on iOS as well as Android. Stylesheets do not get loaded on both. The Analysis application works as intended on Desktops & on mobile devices when opened in the browser through the BI Launch Pad but does not load CSS on the Mobile BI app. I don't think its a problem with your SDK component as it works on desktops. A workaround will be to add all your component styles in a Custom CSS in your Analysis Application as they get applied on the Mobile BI app.

    Regards,

    Stephen

    Hi.

    Running yesterday on the same issue then looking for it on SCN, I ended up here.

    I have an easy fix I've tested and that work.

    First, retrieve the URL of your component (you can use the draft I've made there : http://scn.sap.com/message/15689543#15689543 , with the help of @Reiner Hille-Doering and @Michael Howles).

    Second, dynamically load CSS using jQuery :

    $('head').append( $('<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />').attr('href', <url your retrieved>+'css/component.css') );
    
    

    I let you decide where this has to be put, but the best obviously is to do it earlier as possible.

    This way you'll see your CSS in the BI Mobile App.

    Hope it helps.

    Br,

    Vincent

    EDIT : According to this , the problem is solved with SP01 of DS 1.4.

    Patrick - to clarify, did you install patch 1 of Design Studio on the BI platform as well?  Are you on the latest release of Mobile BI for iOS?
