      Thanks in advance

      Is there a way to set the Feed.Color options 'Pattern' (Solid/Outlined/Hatched), 'ShowAs' (Front/Back) and 'Color'?

      Hi Jef,

      this is not possible with the current set of APIs offered for the Chart.

      Too bad! It's really needed to set correct (IBCS compliant) bar charts.

      Not sure whether it helps in your concrete case, but there will be fix coming up which preserves existing pattern, stacking and color settings for the version dimension, which got lost earlier e.g. when setting a filter on this dimension on a chart. Also newly added versions get the more useful default settings similar as if you would do it through Builder panel in edit mode.

      Yes, indeed, we also learned through an incident there's a fix for that coming.
      It already helps, although would be better if it can be controlled fully by a designer.

      Hi Friends,

      I try to use the script for selection from a dropdown for measures.

      I buildt it similar as the application from SAP "Feature - Select measures via a dropdown box" runs on the model BestRun_advanced.

      For table it works fine. But in case of chart the measures are added and not removed. But I need only the selected measure in the chart, same as in the table.

      script for Function setMeasureFilter:

      Table_1.getDataSource().removeDimensionFilter("CostElement");
      if (CurrentMeasureFilterSelection !== "") {
      Chart_1.removeMeasure(CurrentMeasureFilterSelection, Feed.ValueAxis);
      }
      Table_1.getDataSource().setDimensionFilter("CostElement",selectedId);
      Chart_1.addMeasure(selectedId, Feed.ValueAxis); 

      And one more question: we use a live model. I'm not really sure is the name of the measure-Dimension right in t his case? "Measures"

      Thanks in advance

      Maren

      Hi,

      I would suggest please check all the naming of your measure and dimension in the live model and that will help you to create a dropdown, make sure to use ID always in the measure.

       

      Thanks,

      Hi,

      example script is link to another model (import). The name of dimension is right (CostElement).
