scrolling not work in mobile


I've created new report in sap businessobjects design studio,it's worked fine when I used in PC with cursor of scrolling, but if I run in mobile which just touch without cursor,I can't scrolling the page, even if I've set css "overflow:scroll".

I've searched that SAPUI5 m Mode can realize it, but I must use chart component to realize warning,where SAPUI5 m Mode haven't it.

I'm use HANA,OLAP connection,design studio of version is 16.4.0.

Can I realize touch scrolling of mobile in SAPUI5 Mode?

Thanks .

    Hi Jing,

    Are you running your SAP Design Studio application in the mobile browser through BI Launchpad or are you using the BI Mobile apps for iOS/Android? According to the Design Studio PAM, mobile usage is officially supported only through the native BI Mobile apps and not directly on the mobile browser.

    • Hi Jing,

      Thanks for the clarification. Here are my comments:

      1) SAPUI5 (commons mode) is not designed for mobile use. SAP's stated direction is to transition to the SAPUI5 m Mode which is specifically designed for both mobile and desktop cases. Furthermore, even though you'll be able to run DS 1.6 SAPUI5 Mode applications in Lumira 2.0 compatibility mode, the future direction is to deprecate SAPUI5 Mode. Therefore, I recommend that you do not create any new applications in SAPUI5 Mode as you will be setting yourself up for unnecessary maintenance in future;

      2) Although the Info Chart does not currently support conditional formatting, I don't think this is a good enough reason to create applications in SAPUI5 Mode instead of SAPUI5 Mode, considering the implications I have mentioned in Point 1. Although I admit it is cumbersome and requires extra work, you can always apply conditional formatting to Info Charts using CSS. There are various discussions about this on the SCN. Also, the launch of Lumira 2.0 is just around the corner and based on the various presentations and community calls etc, my understanding is that conditional formatting will be supported for Info Charts;

      3) On a separate note, just out of curiosity, I'd be interested to know why you chose to develop a completely custom hybrid app for mobile BI instead of using the SAP BI Mobile SDK where you can configure the branding and the functionality according to your needs? Were there required features that the BI Mobile SDK could not provide that lead you to develop your own custom app from scratch?
