Using the BOXI sdk with the IXmlView, IHtmlView, etc. interfaces


I'm looking into different ways of viewing manipulating BOXI reports via the SDK. The tools that I have to use are ASP.NET 2010, our business objects is running on Tomcat, however. I've been able to display reports and parts of reports via the opendocument.jsp and iFrame.

What I'd like to do, is allow the user to pick what part of the report that they'd like to display. If I view the Web Intelligence Document with a text editor I see markup like:

<GRAPH NAME="MyGraph" BID="106" SID="8" X="11662" Y="1275" WIDTH="10800" HEIGHT="8625" AUTOFIT_WIDTH="yes" AUTOFIT_HEIGHT="yes" LOOK3D="yes" ORIENTATION="vertical" TEMPLATE="clustbar">

If I open the graph via the sdk and the IXmlView or IHtmlView interfaces, I don't see anything like that, instead I see stuff like:

<div class="s8 " style="position: absolute; left: 311px; top: 34px; width: 286px;

height: 228px; overflow: hidden;">

<img style="width: 288px; height: 230px;" border="0"> </img>


I can understand that the sdk doesn't return the binary content of the image, but what doesn't make sense is that it doesn't even return the NAME of the graph. I'd like to build a list of the GRAPH elements inside the web intelligence document together with the BID's, but it doesn't look like you can do this without actually opening the web intelligence document, which I could do programatically, but that seems much kludgier than opening the markup of the report via the SDK.

    At this time, the only product that supports VS 2010 is [CRVS2010|] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken];, currently in Beta.

    BOE SDK for VS 2010 is not expected to be released until sometime next year (probably closer to mid year).

      I don't seem to have a problem accessing the xml or html view of the report. The only problem is that the data I get back isn't very complete. This would seem to be coming from the business objects side of things. I would hope there might be a setting to change to get a more complete html/xml representation of the report, including the images.
