getData not working properly after setDimensionFilter statement In SAP Analytics Cloud


Hello all

I’ve noticed recently that if I use .getDataSource().getData after a setDimensionFilter statement – as shown in below code – the textbox used is not refreshed properly.

Following steps in the below example:

The highlighted textbox total revenue is matching the table revenue (because I’ve clicked 2x times in button AK).

But if I click on the next US State WA (button WA) then I see the highlighted textbox & table total revenues not matching:

But if I click a second time in button “WA” then I get the desired result:

In summary, only after a second click both TextBox and Table are matching?! And this forces the user to always click twice on each state object – and this is not acceptable, don’t you agree?

Any idea why this is happening in SAC Designer Application? Am I missing something or doing something wrong?

Kindly advise as soon as possible.

It seems to me the setDimensionFilter is the last statement executed in SAC designer and it ignores the getData statement which is running after setDimensionFilter.

Table_1.getDataSource().setDimensionFilter("State_Ab", state);

Chart_1.getDataSource().setDimensionFilter("State_Ab", state);

Tot_Revenue_TEXT.applyText("Total Revenue: "+Chart_1.getDataSource().getData({"@MeasureDimension": "[Account].[parentId].&[Total_Revenue_in_M]"}).formattedValue);
