Infochart in Design studio 1.6

Hello All,

I am using design studio 1.6

I have a requirement to show Previous year data in Grey color and Curent year data in Blue color. I am using a column chart, hence one bar should be grey and another should be in Blue.

From the posts in SCN i learnt that we can do it with either CSS or Conditional formatting. But with CHARTS!!!!.. However Chart component is not available in 1.6 version. so we can use only infochart. With Infocharts we cant use CSS or conditional formatting.

Is there any solution or workaround for my requirement?

Thank you..

    The CHART component is still available in 1.6 but in m mode, but you are right you should look at using InfoCharts.

    The best way to meet your requirement (my opinion only) is to look at an add-on from Graphomate; you should be able to find them at the SAP app center

    The Graphomate add-on meets the IBCS requirements, which it sounds like what you are asking. They also offer a trial.

    Hi Swapna,

    If your requirement is to selectively change the column colours of the SAME measure based on the category dimension year, you can adapt the CSS approach I have described in this answer:

    Also, it would clarify your requirement if you posted a screenshot of your chart with appropriate annotations.

    Hi Swapna,

    If they are two different key figures then please go to column chart, click on conditional formatting, then select measure PY (previous year) and assign the color to grey, then select cy measure and select colour as blue assign one dummy value >-500000000000000 and save the chart.

    It will be some thing shown in the screen shot, and i am sure you can achieve your requirement.

    Please refer the screen shots, let me know if you need further help on this
