Component to display percentage value

Hello experts,

I need to add a chart/component in my application which will display a single numeric value(percentage format) based on a single keyfigure.

I don't need anything in x-axis or y-axis.Just the percentage value to be displayed.

Please help.

I am a beginner in SAP BO design studio.Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Varsha,

    We had a similar requirement wherein we had to display a single numeric value as a Value / Percentage. So we developed a custom component which could do this. We also added quite a few formatting options like changing the no. of decimal places etc. Following are some screenshots of what we had developed:

    This is also available as part of our Design Studio Custom Extensions Suite ( DSX ) -

    Best Regards,

    • Hi Alfred,

      I am trying your above solution but it's not quite working for me. I wish to display a calculated value that is a percentage in a text box along with some text. I am using Design Studio 1.6.

      My source data from a universe is this:

      My global script function called 'pct' is this:

      var Complete = NUM_ACCREDITATIONS_STATUS.getData("OBJ_299", {"OBJ_122":"Complete"}).value;

      var Total = NUM_ACCREDITATIONS_STATUS.getData("OBJ_299","OBJ_122").value;

      var Percent = (Complete / Total) * 100;

      var formattedText = "Your MAST compliance is: " + Convert.floatToString(Complete,"#,##0.0")+"%";

      return formattedText;

      I now wish to output the formattedText value in a text box TEXT_1 so I have set up an On Startup Event as follows:

      When I execute the application the text value is not being displayed in the text box.

      What am I missing?

    Please try using the KPI tile, which comes with the Design Studio SDK templates - see the help at SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio 1.4 – SAP Help Portal Page
