Design Studio 1.2 – a Second Look

Some more features to investigate:



In my example above, I am setting a mandatory variable from the BEx query at startup.

See where this appears in the application properties:



Next, I want to activate sorting on and off at run time.  Using code I learned at SAP TechEd:


At runt time, you can see this as follows:


There is no sorting on the cross tab.  If I click the “Sort” button, I can then sort on the cross tab:



At runtime, you can set conditional formatting from the BEx query (“Exceptions”) on and off:


My exception from the BEx query was to highlight in red those projects over budget.

      Hi Tammy,

      With conditional formatting is that the only approach (Using BW Exceptions )available? We have a requirement to show the negative numbers in Red Font? Is it possible to achieve this using CSS script or is there any other easy method to do this?

      Hi Arun,

           This has to be done via scripting using the crosstab alert classes. Above is the link for reference. Within each Datacellalertbackground class, u have to write color:red css for the red alert class. for the green alert class, the color:green should work.
