While exporting application as PDF, our CSS Icons get dropped.

Hi subhash,

Looks like I found the workaround to our issue.

Fix

Instead on "Buttons" Set with CSS Icons, try it on "Text" component.

However i didn't like the approach as the Prime motive of using the buttons is to provide users feeling of something got pushed or clicked.

Possible solution with Buttons

I just came across some SAP Notes on printing as pdf with 1.5. I don't have SAP Service Market Place account. Best i can update on weekday with admins.

If you have access, please let me know if there is a solution with Buttons on these Notes.

Regards

Fahad

Hi Mohd Fahad,

i gone through the note

http://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/2150460

Known CSS issues:

  • CSS pseudo-elements are not supported, for example ::before, ::after. Therefore, components styled using pseudo-elements will not be exported exactly as they appear.
  • Background images may not be exported.
  • The CSS overflow property is not supported. Therefore scrollbars within the application may not be exported.

Subhash

Hi Venkata,

Thanks for checking on Notes.

Looks like i have to switchback BUTTONS with TEXT for now, until the fix is introduced in patch.

In your case, below response from Ingo might be the right approach.

Hi Fahad,

SAP Design Studio Export is missing a lot of handy features such as the possibility of using your own corporate design, explicit print layouts or full table content.

Maybe you are interested in a solution called Design-Studio Export. It's a customer friendly reporting frontend for SAP Design Studio. You can download a free trial here SAP BO Design Studio Export Solutions

I hope this helps!

All the best,

Daniel

Hello Mohhd,

perhaps you are interested in trying out our PDF Export, which comes as part of our extensions for Design Studio. You can download a 30 day trial here: http://www.visualbi.com/DSXTrial.

Tammy did a quick comparison which you can read here:

Hi Ingo/Tammy,

Thanks for the quick response.

CheckBox in Link

I tried the below link, after all the details, i'm unable to CHECK the "check-box" on 'terms and condition'. Can you please check on that?

Nice to have in fix pack

I saw Tammy post, DS Extension looks good. would be nice to have in-existing DS1.5 version or possibly introduced as "Fix pack" in near future.

We have strict restriction for add-on components. Might have to stay with "Text" component for CSS for now .

Hello Mohd,

you simply scroll down to the end of the terms and conditions document and the checkbox will become active.

In regards to the extensions - these are Extensions owned by Visual BI - not owned by SAP - so you have to purchase them separate and they are not part of a "Fix Pack" delivered by SAP.
