    Hi,
    i guess it’s a very cool widget; unfortunately i get always an error message: Cannot load BI Query. please change to offline mode in preferences. another window appears: error.
    i tired it with several cubes / queries, but no success. it seems that the widget can’t establish the connection to BW. Any idea?

        Hey guys,Let me know if you still have an issue after trying that or if the widget doesn’t work even though the web service is accessed.

            Looks like the issue is with your web service access if you’re getting the short dump for SOAP_CORE. Please work through customer messages to troubleshoot that SOAP_CORE issue with your web service. The problem isn’t on the widget side for that issue…

              I understand that the problem isn’t on the widget side for that issue. Since i understand you understand both parts (widget and webservice) i thought you could answer. I am still not able to understand why it works through wsnavigator of J2EE and produces SOAP_CORE error in the other scenario i have mentioned.

              Thanks for your time.

              Regards
              Raja

      Also, I’ve updated the screenshot above. Make sure the host is entered with the port. For example, in the sceenshot above, you see the host as

      “cdphl338.phl.sap.corp:1080”

      This is the ABAP host and ABAP HTTP port.

      Also, make sure the client for the ABAP system is specified. Please validate and let me know if this works.

        I might in the future, but have no plans to do that now. One framework at a time … : )

        I will have another version of this widget that has scrollbars (vertical and horizontal) as well as suppress results rows, export to excel, export to pdf, etc… There’s a lot I have planned and the version out here is just version 1.0. Stay tuned…

        After you download the widget, you will need to install the yahoo widget engine first. See the pre-requisites in the attached how-to guide.

      I’m glad you like it. I’m also planning on updating the offline mode such that when you pull data, it writes it and stores it locally. Then the next time if you’re offline, it will just use the stored dataset. I’ll add the last refreshed timestamp to the widget as well… Lots of new things coming so stay tuned…

          I have a question and a suggestion.

          Q:I have problem on language characters. Is there any settings for ISO8859-9 Turkish character set?

          S:An amazing widget like management cockpit. But It will be more perfect if we can add more queries and see them on different docks.Maybe in different colors.

          Yours sincerely,

            The widget can be run today with many different widgets on the desktop in many different colors. You can just create multiple copies of the widget with different file names.

            I know about the Language problem and the ISO8859-9 Turkish character set. I’m trying to get full Unicode support, but unfortunately, this involves a change in the ABAP stack and we have an open message on this currently.

    Hi Prakash,

    I was wondering if you can point me in the direction of creating a textArea( I think ) for an input parameter/filter on your widget. I understand the Web API commands and creating the SOAPEnvelope just cannot figure out the xml to get the input box to show up in the header or footer.

      Hey Felipe,

      I’m not sure if there’s a direct way to get this to work. What you could do is you could create a .NET based web service that can call sap router through kernel calls and this web service can be called from the widget. It would involve some custom development.
