Former Member March 15, 2007 at 5:23 am Hi Prakash,it looks fantastic!But can you help us with the customizing of the abap stack & java stack.How can we find the correct address and port for the ABAP stack. For the java stack the url is the same as for a bi query including /irj? Thanks in advance,Thierry like (0) Former Member Post authorMarch 15, 2007 at 6:14 am For the ABAP Url, see section 4 of this document. It’s a little dated, but that information is relevant: https://sapmats-us.sap-ag.de/download/download.cgi?id=Z50S5TLUCJX2ZLZXHIBEWH0F5R4GJR9FWYVQI5IZA58TM0RFOR The java url would look something as follows: mycompany:1080 You put the hostname:port of your ABAP System. like (0) Former Member Post authorMarch 15, 2007 at 6:14 am I meant the hostname:port of your JAVA system, not abap system. So something like this: mycompany:50000 like (0) Former Member March 22, 2007 at 3:49 am Hi, It seems the download has expired. “Error – download expired” BRRobin Smedberg like (0) Former Member Post authorMarch 23, 2007 at 12:43 pm I put this information in a blog because the download was expired. See this blog: BI Data Widget – Weblog Series & Pre-requisites like (0) September 27, 2007 at 4:41 am Hi, That widget is really great… but I have two small issues with the display…1. Apparantly it does not like the “€” which is a bit sad as we are European Company…2. It does not like “calendar day”, it does not display any value but an empty column instead… Any Idea why?Thanks,Rodolphe like (0) Former Member Post authorSeptember 27, 2007 at 2:21 pm Hey Rodolphe, Glad you liked it. Sorry for the bugs. I didn’t encounter those scenarios when building it. I’ve created a new version (just for you) v2.4. Here is a temporary link:https://sapmats-us.sap-ag.de/download/download.cgi?id=KRLG66INVABQKLEKFP96U7QPGP3V4C6FHSDT84CO7QZ46OL4LR This will be updated on SDN shortly. This version does the following: 1. Adds “Language” as a logon preference2. Fixes issue with 0CALDAY or any day based date characterstic Cheers,Prakash like (0) September 27, 2007 at 9:11 pm Many thanks!!! The issue with the calday is fixed (I had found a workaround by using a structure and text variable). Any Idea how to solve the “euro” display? The reason is that we have used a replacement character (€) for the Euro currency. But the widget seems no to like it instead of €, it displays â,┐.For the moment, I simply deactiave the replacement character. Many thanks our managers will love it. Best regards,Rodolphe like (0) Former Member Post authorSeptember 28, 2007 at 7:19 am Unfortunately, I don’t know how to render a “Eur” symbol in the yahoo widget engine or even if the yahoo widget engine supports these characters. If you find any information on this, I’ll be happy to add it, but I have been unable to find out whether this is supported by this widget engine. like (0) Former Member October 25, 2007 at 10:23 pm Hi Prakash, thanks for your great work, it is great to have such perfect documentation on creating widgets for bi data. I have tried to display one of my queries (following “How To…Consume BI Data withinYahoo Widgets”)in a widget but I am facing some problems. The background graphic is displayed and I don’t get any error messages, but also no data… When I open the query in the Web Services Navigator I get a result. Many thanks in advance and keep on sharing your knowledge :o) like (0) Former Member Post authorOctober 25, 2007 at 10:30 pm Hey Markus, Try running the latest version of my BI Data Widget v2.71 here:https://sapmats-us.sap-ag.de/download/download.cgi?id=SQ3554TVX1P9IBMX983F5WH9OPY3A6Y5OQBQ6GJSQHA1FPHIMW Does that work for you? This version will be posted on SDN shortly… Prakash like (0) Former Member October 25, 2007 at 11:56 pm Hi Prakash, yes, this widget is display correct, but it is an offline-widget, isn’t it? I just sent you an email with some screenshots and files…it would be great if you have a few moments to go through… Thanks!!Markus like (0) Former Member Post authorOctober 26, 2007 at 6:01 am Hey Markus, Within the widget preferences, uncheck the checkbox for “Offline” mode. Then you can see your query in the widget. Also, to see the source code, you can use the yahoo widget converter to convert the .widget file to the .kon and .js files… All widgets are open source… Also, the email you sent me didn’t have attachments. I’m not allowed by my corporate policies to receive .js files in email… like (0) Former Member October 27, 2007 at 2:54 am Hi Prakash, as I am also new to widgets, I didn’t knew that you can also convert a widget to its sources. I am really happy :o) Thanks and have a nice weekend!Markus like (0) Former Member October 26, 2007 at 12:24 am Hi Prakash, ups…I should have looked in the preferences of your widget. Yes, I can use your widget to display my query in it. Now I am wondering, why my widget does not work… Are you plannung to share you kon- and js-files of 2.71? Thanks!!Markus like (0) Former Member November 5, 2007 at 2:30 am Hi Prakash,thanks for this great tool, i’m new to this stuff ..Some guys already asked how to determine the ABAP host and port an althoug the JAVA host and port.. Where can i get this information? By JAVA host do you mean the EP or the BI-system itself… i was able to execute all the configuration steps in your blogs and how-to-papers…… confused …Ralf like (0) Former Member Post authorNovember 5, 2007 at 4:44 am Hey Ralf, I addressed this within this blog:BI Data Widget – Weblog Series & Pre-requisites The ABAP host is available as the server:port when you run the WSDL from transaction WSADMIN in your ABAP system. The Java Host and port are the host:port for your Enterprise Portal. Cheers,Prakash like (0) Former Member November 5, 2007 at 6:43 am thanks prakash i got that, but there is still the error described above and no data in the widget. any hints? Ralf like (0) Former Member November 5, 2007 at 6:19 am … meanwhile i ran into a deeper problem. logfile says XRFC> ERROR 16:00:07: SOAP Runtime CL_SOAP_RUNTIME_SERVER->EXECUTE <<br/>XRFC> _PROCESSING() SOAP Fault Exception caught: : InvalidInput <<br/>does anyone know anything about that ? regards like (0) Former Member Post authorNovember 5, 2007 at 6:36 am 1. Make sure you are using the latest version of the BI Data Widget (V2.71). 2. Make sure SAP Note: 1008667 is applied. Cheers,Prakash like (0) Former Member November 5, 2007 at 6:53 am i’m sorry, i got v2.71 but 1008667 could not be applied. ralf like (0) Former Member Post authorNovember 8, 2007 at 11:42 pm I wouldn’t know what the problem is without debugging then… like (0) Former Member December 5, 2007 at 6:43 am Hi,Cool Widget. it works great.After the first setings, i wanted to change the query and the infoprovider that the widget uses, When I entered the widget preferences I could only change the user password and theme. I then tried to copy the widget with another name but at that time I wasn’t able to change anything beside user password and theme, which means that all I can see on the copy widget is the “Daily Sales” demo report. I would appreciate if you would guide me with returning to the detailed preferences menu. Dan like (0) Former Member Post authorDecember 7, 2007 at 3:39 pm This seems really strange. What widget engine version are you using? This could be something to do with windows security. You could either try getting Admin Rights to your windows machine or go to regedit and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Yahoo\WidgetEngine\Widgets\BI_WIDGET_V2_74. This is where Yahoo stores preferences. See if all your preferences values are there. If they didn’t get written, it is a windows authorization issue. I’ve not had anyone else mention this issue and lots of people are using the widget productively. Let me know if this works for you. like (0) Former Member Post authorDecember 9, 2007 at 9:06 pm Hey Dan, I see the problem. The widget didn’t work well under Yahoo Widget Engine 4.5. I’ve updated the newest version (2.76) here:https://sapmats-us.sap-ag.de/download/download.cgi?id=CS2DI7EIIU9B593QKY6NNSQ4KBN256ZAPYL3VILNMSP0TJPRAJ This works for widget engine 4.5 now and doesn’t have the bug where you can’t see all your preferences…. Cheers,Prakash like (0) Former Member December 10, 2007 at 5:43 am With widget version 2.76 i can change my preferences.thank you, Dan like (0) Thyagarajan Balasubramanian December 9, 2007 at 5:26 am When I click on the BI widget link, I get page not found error (404). has the widget download moved to another area?
