Recently I am asked by my manager to give him a report containing the number of open, in process and closed tickets assigned to my responsible component. Since I am learning Javascript recently, I decide not to achieve the report via excel but choose Javascript instead.

Here below is the Bar chart created via a third party Javascript library jChartFX.

You can download the library and example from this link.

You can follow this document to create Bar Chart and embed it in your CRM system.

1. Upload necessary Javascript file and css file into mime repository

Although there are lots of js and css file in the downloaded library, in this sample only 8 of them are needed:

You can find all of them from attached file, just rename as and unzip it.

Go to SE80 mime repository, follow the path "/bc/bsp/sap/crm_ui_frame" to find folder "CRM_UI_FRAME". Create a folder "jchart" under it via context menu Create->Folder:

Then click on folder jchart and choose "Create->MIME Object" from context menu, maintain Mime Type as "application/x-javascript" and click Start Editor button:

The notepad application is automatically launched, and just copy the source code of JavaScript file from the zip file of this document.

Repeat the operation ans ensure all the 8 files are created in mime repository correctly. ( The mime type for css file is "text/css") Once done, it looks like below:

2. Create a new UI component and draw Bar Chart there

copy the source code of file main.html from attachment into the empty view you just created in UI component:

A brief explanation on the source code of main.html

  • line18: create a new chart instance

  • line19: position the chart into html element with ID = divChart1

  • line20: set chart type as Bar

  • line21: feed the chart with JSON data

  • line22: enable 3D effect to make the chart look more fancy

  • line23~25: set title

line28~line73: hard code the JSON data stream for chart

line81~line112: since I am not happy with the default color defined in css file, so I redefine them here.

So far, the development of webclient UI component is finished.

3. Create a new work center and put the UI component into it

Please find step by step about how to achieve it from this link.

Feel free to adapt the source code of this sample to meet with your own requirement.

The same step could be performed to integrate other third party JavaScript libraries to WebClient UI framework, see another example from this blog Display count down in WebClient UI.
