Following my previous blog post, i wanted to point out the most interesting capability made available using Extension Points.
I will show how you can inject some code in your webi DHTML interface. Hopefully this very simple example will be a little “eye-opener” on the potential of this feature for anyone who deals with webi.
Note: Make sure the customization is enabled, please refer to Simply customize your WebIntelligence User Interface.
title: “My own custom button”,
align: “left”, //left, right
alert (“Hello world!”);
And the great news is that you can leverage this JSP with Report Engine SDK (REBEAN) in order to interact with the webintelligence report (note: only available using DHTML viewer)
Now let’s look at some real-life examples of application (any other ideas welcome)
– Create a form that will insert/update/delete datas from your report.
– Access a third-party application like Google Maps to visualize the locations mentionned in your report.
If you have other ideas/suggestions or questions, maybe we can discuss its feasibility on this blog.
