PDF Export Problem on BI 7 Web App Template

Hi Friends,

We have a web template with button group. One of the button in the button group got assigned the 'EXPORT' command.

The 'Export' command properties are as below

- Export Format = PDF (PDF)

- Scaling Factor = FIT_HORIZONTAL

- Show Export Dialog = ON

- Paper Size = DINA4

- Paper Orientation = PORTRAIT

- Repeat Column Headers = On

- Header Center = Date Time and Page of Pages

- rest are all default

I have 2 problems with the above case

i) Header Center , other header footer things not visible if 'Show Export Dialog = ON'

- When I run the template, and clicked 'Export Button', LAter i was shown the Dialog Box. I kept everything as default. Then i am able to see the PDF with the content. But i am not able to see the 'Date Time and Page of Pages' on the PDF. THis mode allows me to see the Content in color but no Header Center.

- If i change 'Show Export Dialog = OFF' then i am getting the PDF with 'Date Time and PAge of Pages', i.e., Header Center.

ii) Another problem is, I have used the Script Control and i am showing some text using JAvascript funtions on the screen. This specific text are not visible on the PDF file, when we do the export.

Could anyone let me know, how to solve this.
