WAD BI 7.0: Web Template with custom buttons

In some cases, adding custom buttons simplify navigation .Ex: After executing the query, when the user needs to rerun the report, the variable screen needs to be navigated in two-step process 1) Right click on Filter and 2) click on Variable Screen as shown below:


Steps to add custom button to repor to ease navigation:

1)  Insert Button group from standard web item tab to the report layout/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/2_211593.png

2) Name the button and set button property by clicking ” .”  icon under internal display


3) Wizard for parameter for web item opens up:


4) Edit the caption, select “Command via Wizard” in action and select “ OPEN_VARIABLE_DIALOG” command and click OK.

Similarly we can add buttons for other options available from Context menu properties. Ex Bookmark, Export to PDF , Export to Excel etc..
