I have a SQL table available where I wanted to show a radar graph based on its data.
It turns out that BI Viewer is not providing radar or spider graphs, so I wanted to know how to have such graph based on a data table and not a cube view.
BAsed on what I've seen, the Advanced Charts allows to work with cube views or business rules only. Does someone have a business rule in order to extract data from my SQL data table and have it as a source of the graph ?
You can use the below code snippet to create one
Dim sql As New Text.StringBuilder
sql.AppendLine("Select * from Table1")
Using dbConnFW As DbConnInfo = BRAPi.Database.CreateApplicationDbConnInfo(si)
Using dt As DataTable = BRApi.Database.ExecuteSql(dbConnFW, sql.ToString, False)
'Use System.Data.DataTable objects to play with column and rows.
You might have to figure out exactly what columns you need so that the chart actually works, but this is a generic Dashboard DataSet rule that queries a table in the application database.
Namespace OneStream.BusinessRule.DashboardDataSet._JL Public Class MainClass Public Function Main(ByVal si As SessionInfo, ByVal globals As BRGlobals, ByVal api As Object, ByVal args As DashboardDataSetArgs) As Object Try Select Case args.FunctionType Case Is = DashboardDataSetFunctionType.GetDataSetNames Dim names As New List(Of String)() names.Add("Dims") Return names Case Is = DashboardDataSetFunctionType.GetDataSet If args.DataSetName.XFEqualsIgnoreCase("Dims") Then Dim sql As String = "SELECT * FROM Dim" Using dbConn As DbConnInfo = BRApi.Database.CreateApplicationDbConnInfo(si) Dim result As DataTable = BRApi.Database.ExecuteSql(dbConn, sql, False) Return result End Using End If End Select Return Nothing Catch ex As Exception Throw ErrorHandler.LogWrite(si, New XFException(si, ex)) End Try End Function End Class End Namespace
Thanks guys !
The thing is, I don't know what should be expected format for the graph and I can't find any documentatio about it. So far, these business rule will allow me to have a table with what's coming from my SQL query, but I don't know what the Graphs Data Adapter is expecting in terms of columns... any ideas ?
