Background documentation Parameters for Pie Charts and Pie Charts (Split) Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

Definition

Pie chart and pie chart (split) are map renderers. You use map renderers to determine the way in which BI data is displayed in a map layer. You use the parameters of a map renderer to determine the properties of the renderer.

Use

You can display values in the form of pie charts with the pie chart renderer.

You can use the split pie chart renderer to display values in the form of split pie charts. In a split pie chart, the split occurs automatically if there is a "change of group" (that is from sales for the 1st quarter of 2001 to the sales for the 2nd quarter of 2001).

Note

Not that the parameters of the pie chart renderer and pie chart (split) renderer are identical.

Structure

Below is a list of parameters for the pie chart and pie chart (split) renderers.

Parameter

Description

Visible

(VISIBLE)

You use this parameter to determine whether the map layer is visible.

Data Provider

(DATA_PROVIDER_REF)

 

You use this parameter to assign a data provider to the map layer. The map layer gets the data and metadata that it needs to generate the output and commands from this data provider.

We recommend that you keep to the conventions supported by the Web Application Designer when specifying names: The name should be a maximum of 30 characters long and consist of characters “A-Z”, “0-9” and “_”, but cannot start or end with “_”. Adhering to these conventions facilitates the upgrade to future SAP releases.

Pie Chart Settings

(PIE_SETTINGS)

This parameter contains the following additional parameters that you can use to control the appearance of the pie chart in the Web application:

     Pie Chart: Minimum Size
(PIE_MIN)

You use this parameter to define the minimum diameter of a circle in the chart. This diameter is the sum of all the minimum values displayed in the Web application. If you set "circle diameter (minimum) = circle diameter (maximum)“, all circles in the Web application are displayed with the same diameter.

     Pie Chart: Maximum Size
(PIE_MAX)

You use this parameter to define the maximum diameter of a circle in the chart. This diameter is the sum of all the maximum values displayed in the Web application. If you set "circle diameter (minimum) = circle diameter (maximum)“, all circles in the Web application are displayed with the same diameter.

Color List

(COLOR_LIST)

You use this parameter to enter color values.

Tooltips for Map Layers

(TOOLTIPS_VISIBLE)

You use this parameter to determine whether a tooltip text is to be displayed for the map layers.

Breaks Distributed Evenly
(BREAKS_DISTRIBUTED)

 

You use this parameter to set even distribution for color shadings.

Label Display

(LABEL_DISPLAY)

  

You use this parameter to determine whether labels should be displayed and, if so, how they should be displayed. There are the following options:

     No Label (NONE)

     Text as Label (TEXT)

     Key as Label (KEY)

     Value as Label (VALUE)

Highlighted Labels

(LABELS_HIGHLIGHTED)

You use this parameter to determine whether labels of map layers are to be highlighted.

Legend Visible

(LEGEND_VISIBLE)

You use this parameter to determine whether a legend is to be displayed for the map.

Legend Caption

(LEGEND_CAPTION)

This parameter allows you to use the Structure linktext input dialog box to assign a heading to the legend of the map.

Affected Data Provider

(LINKED_DATA_PROVIDER_REF_LIST)

 

 

 

You use this parameter to create a list of data providers to which all commands of the map layer are sent.

For each entry in the data provider list, you choose a data provider for the Affected Data Provider parameter (LINKED_DATA_PROVIDER_REF).

Note that you cannot create data providers in the parameter dialog box - you have to create them beforehand.

Display Exceptions

(EXCEPTIONS_VISIBLE)

 

You use this parameter to specify whether exceptions that are activated for the base data provider are to be displayed. See also: Structure linkDisplaying Exceptions in Maps and Charts.

Attribute

(DISPLAY_ATTRIBUTE)

 

You use this parameter to enter the name of a characteristic attribute whose value is to be displayed on the map.
