Hello Xcelsius Gurus,

Is it possible to pass data parameter between SWF files?

If possible, how to achieve it?

Thank you.

Hi,

Yes, that is possible. Within the one Xcelsius dashboard you define flash variables - you can then pass values from the other dashboard via the URL.

Please have a look at this description:

Hello Jacob,

Thank you for your reply.

I am very new to Xcelsius, and doesn't know how to set up the flash variables.

Is there any detail step-by-step flash variable instruction that you know?

Thanks.

Hi,

Here is another helpful document: Best practices guide for Xcelsius 2008:

https://www.sme.sap.com/irj/boc/xcelsius?rid=/library/uuid/a084a11c-6564-2b10-79ac-cc1eb3f017ac

Search for flash variables and on page 10 you will find a link to guide for using Flash variables.

Hi,

Thank you for the reference. Little bit confused, please let me clarify.

I do not understand how the receiver SWF receieved the data parameter and process.

For example, I have a parent dashboard and a child dashboard. In the parent dashboard, I have set up combo box to filter the data. And I want the data that I have selected in combo box to the child dashboard.

To do this, first I need to setup the flash variable at the parent dashboard to fetch the data I selected.

After this, how to link this data to the child dashboard?

Furthermore, after the child dashboard received the data parameter, I need this data to insert into the spreadsheet so I can filter the data. Is this possible?

Thanks.

Hi,

It is the other way around - you need to create the Flash Var in your child dashboard and then pass the correct/selected values from your parent dashboard - either via HTML/Java og via the URL that you use to open your child dashboard. The two alternatives are described here:

Hope this helps,

Hi,

You are welcome.

It is actually described in the Xcelsius user guide - if you search for Flash variables. The user guide has a step-by-step example based on a sample file in Xcelsius. You can select File -> Samples -> User Guide Samples in Xcelsius to see the samples.

You can download the Xcelsius user guide from: http://service.sap.com/bosap-support (under Product Guides) if you do not already have it (requires login).

Best regards,

Jacob
