SAP Design Studio - PDF Export ignores custom CSS Class

Hello dear community,

I have a strange issue while using the pdf export function of SAP Design Studio.

Before the export I have set a custom css class for a chart with following code:

INFOCHART_19.setCSSClass("chartColumnsRed");

The custom CSS-Class "chartColumnsRed" means that all bars have to be shown in red.

But for some reason when I click the PDF export in the application, the export ignores my custom css-class setting and switches to default for 1 second and then changes back to my custom css class.

But when I open the PDF file it shows the chart with default setting and NOT with the custom css-class setting as I wanted.

Does somebody know this issue or can reproduce that problem?

I export to PDF with following code:

PDF.exportPanelScreen(panelArray);

panelArray = the panels that are dynamically chosen at runtime.

Regards,

Vu

Hi Vu,

This might be helpful,

https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3860571

SAP Note http://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/2150460 explains why this might happen; not all of the CSS is displayed in the export to the PDF

Known CSS issues:

  • CSS pseudo-elements are not supported, for example ::before, ::after. Therefore, components styled using pseudo-elements will not be exported exactly as they appear.
  • Background images may not be exported.
  • The CSS overflow property is not supported. Therefore scrollbars within the application may not be exported.

Please refer this PDF , page number - 106
