Hello everybody,

is it possible to have a chart created by the IGS and to have one specific column in another color than the others?

Or does anyone know where to find the specification for the XML-String?

Thanks

    Why not look at the BSP extension "graphics", and the example programs GRAPH_BSP_TEST and GRAPH_TUT_*. These are BSP tags that wrap the functionality of the IGS for easy use in BSP.

    For coloring a specific column you should use point customizing.

    In the customizing XML you usually have something like this for specifying the color of a complete series:

    ...

    <Values>

    <Series id="myGreenSeries">

    <Color>RGB(0,128,0)</Color>

    </Series>

    </Values>

    ...

    Within the Values section just add a <Point> describing the properties of a point/column:

    ...

    <Values>

    <Series id="myGreenSeries">

    <Color>RGB(0,128,0)</Color>

    </Series>

    <Point id="myRedAlert">

    <Color>RGB(255,0,0)</Color>

    </Point>

    </Values>

    ...

    And finally don't forget to use the id of your point customizing in your data, e.g.:

    ...

    <Series customizing="myGreenSeries" label="Coffee">

    <Point>

    <Value type="y">94</Value>

    </Point>

    <Point customizing="myRedAlert">

    <Value type="y">110</Value>

    ...

    Hi,

    This topic is very interesting and I've kinda a subquestion. What's the link between IGS and the HTMLB chart? The text on the mouseovers and the figures on the (stacked) bars won't show. One told me that was due to no RFC connection to IGS. We've done that now and I don't see any difference. So my questions are:

    - what's the link between them

    - and how to invoke this link

    Many thanks

    Eddy

      Eddy,

      the screenshots show charts of the chart engine (i.e. IGS interpreter XMLCHART).

      Please have a look at the BSP application graph_bsp_test where you can find some examples.

    Kai,

    I don't see any screenshots. I've already been looking at this app. Only 3 out of the 6 graphs seem to work. The one I can see don't show any values and contains only 2 bars/category (where I want 4 values in two stacke bars / category). The rather ppor documentation doesn't provide a lot of info either.

      Eddy,

      please note that some of the chart samples read the XML from the mime repository. You first have to activate this access (see OSS note 685182) in TA sicf.

      /default_host/sap/bc/bsp/sap/public/graphics

      /default_host/sap/bc/bsp/sap/graph_bsp_test

      /default_host/sap/bc/bsp/sap/graph_bsp_test/Mimes

      Both graph_bsp_test entries also need a user with valid password!

      Concerning your chart engine question:

      having these examples it should be easy to create your own XML containing the number of categories/series you need. If you need more information about the data XML just ask for the documentation (mailto:graphics@sap.com).

      If you want to display stacked bars just use "StackedBars" as your charttype in <graphics:chart>.

    Kai,

    All services were already active and I have a valid userid/passwd. I've opened an OSS msg.

    I've also sent a mail.

      Hi Eddy,

      I know this is a long time ago, but do you know what the problem was??

      I have a bit the same problem. On Development this graphics are showing and on Acceptance they are not.

      All the services are active, but there is nothing shown...

      Thanks

      Micha
