[Business Graphics] Translation of captions

I have some Business Graphics elements in my Web Dynpro component.
I used the Chart Designer to customize the appearance and add some titles (chart, X-axis, ...) but - to my opinion - this result in an XML file located in the MIME repository: SAP/BC/WebDynpro/SAP/Zxxx/4OQN7xxxxxx.xml
Now, I have to make available in 5 languages.
Does anyone know how should I proceed to translate the texts that are embedded within this XML file... ?
Should I keep the XML file and implement another layer for the translation trough METHODHANDLER attribute (reference variable of type IF_WD_BUSIN_GRAPHICS_MTD_HNDL) of the Business Graphics control in the WDDOMODIFYVIEW( )?
I guess this should be possible to load the initial XML file, use regular expressions to change the various captions, and inject the modified XML??
--> this looks very much like what is done in report GRAPHICS_IGS_CE_TEST...
Thanks in advance.
Best regards,

  • Dynamic title in Business Graphics

    Hi to all!
    I'm working with a Business Graphics and I'd like a title in the final rendered graphic. The problem is that the text I want to show is not static, it's the name of the person who is using the application.
    The question is: Can I bind the title of the graphic to a context attribute? or is it possible to pass parameters to the graphic?
    Thanks a lot.

    We have achieved this thru....
    1. If you navigate to src folder of your project... src\<package structure>...
    in that there will be a file <viewname>.wdview file. Where <viewname> referes to the name of the view in which business graphics UI element is used.
    2. Open that file with notepad, and you can see the structure of BusinessGrpahics UI element specified in xml format. In that copy what ever between <BusinessGraphics.CustomizingXML>...</BusinessGraphics.CustomizingXML> including these tags also.
    3. In the wdModifyView method of view name obtain the Business Graphics UI element and set the Direct Customizing to the above copied xml(as a string)
    String customXML = "<BusinessGraphics.CustomizingXML>....</BusinessGraphics.CustomizingXML>";
    IWDBusinessGraphics bg = (IWDBusinessGraphics)view.getElement("<business graphics UI element ID>");
    4. In that xml string, the value under <Elements> .. <ChartElements> .. <Title> .. <caption> points to the title. you can replace that with your dynamic value.

  • Business Graphics : Display values for simple series ?

    Hi ,
    I have a some 5 simple series per category.. I am using a column chart . I would like to display the numerical values on top of each of the columns, ? How can i do it ?
    And is there any proper documentation on Business Graphics UI element other than the help.sap and weblogs on the sametopic ?
    Thanks and Regards

    Hi ,
    Thanks for the answer.. By trial and error I had figured out the values.. but am stuck in another problem..
    I have two points created in the chart designer.. each one has its own color.. Now am using this to change the color of a single series .. depending on some value.. point 1 or point 2 will be selected..
    In this scenario ,my legend still shows me the old ones i.e just an yellow icon..
    If i add more info and captions.. for points.. I get .. the proper legend.. But the default legend set also exists. Any ideas on how to remove this .. or
    to display the proper legend in some other way..
    Thanks and Regards

  • Business graphics: customize x axes

    Hi all,
      I have a special requirement from a customes and I don't know how to satisfy this.
    I have successfully implemented a Business graphic with series (not simpleseries) and now I need to customize the x axes which contains the hours of 1 month.
    The customer requirement is to have a label and the corresponding grid line only each sunday at 12:00:00.
    I'm trying with Chart Designer with no luck.
    How can I achieve this?

    > Regards, Kai
    Hi Kay,
      currently I don't use a time axis because reading the documentation I was convinced that it is only for graphics like gannt and similar.
      In my case I need 2 axes, the x axes is for time (quarter hour) and the y axes is for values. The table rapresenting the values is like this:
    Time   Value
    00:15   287
    00:30   290
    00:45   302
    01:00   299
    01:15   306
    Should I use time TimeAxis?
    Thank you

  • Reg : Customizing Business Graphics.

    Hi All,
    I am trying to customize Business Graphics, (i.e) changing the font, background and etc.., I modified the design by using "Edit Customizing" option of the Business Graphics UI. But whatever the modification i did in the design time was not replicated in the run time. Is anything more to do...?

    Apart from making cutomizing settings in Chart Designer, you can also write the following code
    in domodifyview method to bind the settings at run time.

  • Refresh the Business Graphics Data on click of next page event of a table

    Hi Experts,
    We are using Business Graphics UI element in Web dynpro Java to display a table data.
    We are limiting the graphics data to 12 table entries at a time.
    Now, I just want to know how can we refresh the Business Graphics data when the user clicks on the Next Page option at the bottom of the table.
    This is applicable if we have more than 12 table entries and we've restricted the visible row count to 12.
    So, for more than 12 entries; when the user selects the next page, I want the next set of data to be displayed in the Business Graphics UI element.
    But I am not able to get the action for the Next Page event.
    Please note that we are on Netweaver 7.01.
    Kindly suggest as how can we achieve this functionality.
    Kind Regards,

  • Business Graphics - Bar Chart - How to make the height extendable

    Hi Experts,
    I have created Business Graphics UI element for my WD application which fetches data from R/3. I am displaying
    1) Cost Element in Y-axis and Cost in X-axis.
    2) I have set ChartType = Bar, height = 300, width = 830
    When the no of cost elements is upto 7-8, the graph is getting displayed correctly.
    However when the no of cost elements increases to more than 12, the graph becomes un readable. The system displays lot of texts in Y-axis.
    I want to make sure that if no of cost elements increases, the Y-axis of graph should extend.
    How we can do so?

    I could not got any solution of this issue. Finally I convinced the customer to display only top 10 records. Any way higher level managers won't have time to see the graphs of all data.
    One way of resolving the issue is like this - create say 3 Business Graphic UI element. The height of Business Graphic UI element can be set as 300, 600, 900 etc.
    For 10 records use Business Graphic UI element  of height 300.
    For 20 records use Business Graphic UI element  of height 600.
    For 30 records use Business Graphic UI element  of height 900.
    Use the 'Visibility' data type to hide / unhide the Business Graphic UI of different height.

  • Business Graphics API in WEBAS J2EE

    i have a business graphic integrated into my webdynpro application. I checked the api documentation for business graphics and found out, how to change the type of the business graphic and the number of dimensions programmatically.
    On the API, i cannot find out any further possibilities of modifing the chart programmatically. I wonder about this, because the business graphic UI - element in NetWeaver Developer studio provides much more configuration possibilities on charts.
    For example, i would like to use the averagre functions or adapt the number of labels on the chart axis. But all dynamically.
    Has anyone experience, with such advanced business graphics features and nows if it is somehow possible to get to theses features by using the NetWeaver API?
    Thank you very much in advance.

    As I understand, your user management is through database, so when a user is created in your application, the parameters pass through the Action Handler -> service class-> DAO. So a better way would be write an additional class with the user management implementation of BO with a constructor or a method which would take the required user creation parameters and call it in the service class just under the user creation method of your DAO.
    As the user in your system passes some information from the front end, the same can be used to create user in BO.

  • Business Graphics and WebEnterprise

    I have a two part question.
    First, what is the best way to create business graphics such as line, bar,
    and point graphs? OLE to Excel, OCX, some third party commercial graphics
    library such as Brahma Software's Beacon?
    Second, once I have a business graphic what is the best way to display these
    graphics on a web page? A number of Forte field widgets such as ellipse,
    polyline, and point do not have a corresponding HTML element and therefore
    the Forte WebEnterprise WindowConverter class cannot convert these windows.
    Is there a way to save Forte images as BMP/JPG images?

    many ways to do this
    1.U can use WDCopyService(Source ,Target)  here Source : return node of model data
                                                                               Target : Your temporary value node which bound to BG.
    Note : Each time when ever model data get updated(CRUD) u have to call this node.
    2. Use Mapping type node and bind it to BG ui element  exe : when we create any node It has 4 options one of them is Mapping select this and provide the model node
      (mapping of node with model node is replica of the content there in model node, here u don't have to worry about updated content since its replica and get changed eveytime when model operations is performed)

  • Problem with Business Graphic:

    Hi Everybody!
    I am working with a UI control Business Graphic in WebDynpro Java,
    I need to change the text of the legend, and is taking an automatic value, what is the property in the Chart Designer where I can adjust this?
    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Edited by: Briger Palacios on Jul 6, 2011 11:16 PM

    Hi Briger,
    For Changing ur own legend , just write the label property of "SimpleSeries" ,which comes under  your "BusinessGraphics" .
    As many simple series will be there, that much no of legend is require, so just write your label of each simple series.
    if any doubt , plz let me knw.

  • Problem with Stacked Columns in Business Graphics

    Has anyone used the stacked columns chart type in business graphics?  Am facing a problem with this.
    I am using the SimpleGraphics example demo with 2 dataseries, the values ranging from 0-10.  It works fine if the chart type is Columns (this is default).  When I change the chart type to stacked_columns, the graph goes for a toss.  The y-axis range automatically changes to 0-1 (values as 0, 0.2, 0.4 ... 1.0) and it does not display stacked columns as expected.
    Is there any specific property(s) that need to be set for this chart type?
    Appreciate any quick response.

    Hi friend,
    See the link below it is having the solution of hiding the columns in smart forms
    Hide table columns in smart form?
    Create a table to display your values with 12 col and hide the columns based on the idea provided in the link above.
    I think this will solve your issue if you still have queries please revert back to me i will help you.
