How to achieve support input from URL to display images in Xcelsius for ipad.

We need one help in this particular scenario where dynamic images of employee needs to be displayed based on selection in the drop down ( dashboard is to be viewed on SAP BI Mobile).

Now this case has been implement for desktop version using SWF loader component which takes images from URL but in image component we don't have this property and secondly the SWF loader component is not supported on ipad. Hence I need alternative ideas/suggestion about how to achieve this or any other component which support input from URL to display images in Xcelsius for ipad.


Thank You.

    Hi S.K.Sharma,

    Dynamic images of employees Cant displayed dynamically on a mobile compatible Dashboard, because, none of the dynamic image components are supported in there (Swf loader, Fish eye, Slide show, Sliding Picture Menu).

    On the other way you can have the Name of the employees and the unique URL (separate image of particular employee in a link). Have a image component like the one shown in the attachment, and place the URL Button behind it.
    Now have a separate combo box for the selection of the URL. the selected Employee and respective URL ll be in a destination . This URL destination has to be bound with the URL button.

    So when the user clicks on the particular employee, his details come up, and if he wants to see the image, he ll have to click on the image which ll take him to the respective link (having the image f that employee).

    I hope this helps. Lemme know if further clarification is needed.
