Live and Interactive Export in SAP Design Studio 1.6 SP2

Hi All,

I would like to have a export option in my application which is interactive.

For Eg: If I have a chart like below,and if I hover my mouse on each area of the chart, their corresponding values should be shown.

I have tried the below options:

1. Export to PDF/Excel but they are not interactive. - This did not work

2. Use a bookmark share option - This did not work

Code used:

Bookmark.shareBookmark(Bookmark.getBookmarkUrl(DROPDOWN_2_BM.getSelectedValue()));

When I click on Send by Email, I get a window as attached here. It opens up a chrome window.

When I click the attachment icon, I get "Page cannot be displayed error".

Can someone say how to resolve this?

3. Offline-Click through - This did not work

Followed the steps as mentioned in the blog but when I download the zip and open the html file, it just opens up a blank page in IE.

Could someone please suggest a best and easy approach to have an interactive report after export.

Version used: Design Studio 1.6 SP2.

Thank you

    Hi Poojitha,

    It sounds like your requirement is to be able to achieve interactive exports as is possible with Xcelsius and also discussed in the following post: https://answers.sap.com/questions/204896/can-we-save-the-report-in-offline-mode-with-intera.html?childToView=205893#answer-205893

    When it comes to Design Studio, there is no interactive export option, nor does bookmarking satisfy this requirement because it is not offline. The closest option is the Offline click-through but as you have discovered, this can be problematic.

    Frankly, in my opinion Design Studio is not the appropriate tool to use if your requirement is standalone, offline interactive exports. Perhaps if you could be clearer about the business requirement we can provide further guidance.

    Regards,

    Mustafa.

    Poojitha - before trying code, how about trying out the bookmarking functionality with the templates to see if that meets your interactive needs?

    • At startup I just have Bookmark.deleteAllBookmarks();

      I have not used any other code.

      and for the Share button it is Bookmark.shareBookmark(Bookmark.getBookmarkUrl(DROPDOWN_2_BM.getSelectedValue()))

      I have used dropdown instead of the listbox.

      Is there anything else I need to add for the share option to work? As I also have the bookmarks functionality in the same dashboard.

    Hi Poojitha,

    You can get the URL of selected bookmark by below code.

    Bookmark.getBookmarkUrl(DROPDOWN_1.getSelectedValue());

    Assign this value to an input field to access it.

    For using Send by E-mail option on bookmark share window, need to install and configure client in BOBJ by the admin.

    Instead of that you can use the above method to get URL and share it.

    Thanks,

    Poovarasan
