How to Integrate AnyChart JavaScript Charts in SAP Web UI March 30th, 2017 by Sandor van der Neut

Charts in SAP: How to Integrate AnyChart JavaScript Charts in SAP Web UIWe as ‘mere’ humans are not very good at processing raw statistical data visually when it’s delivered to us in an unrefined form. We are, however, very good in detecting complex patterns when data is presented to us in a graph or a chart. It is therefore no wonder that as a developer you often get the requirement to represent data in a more comprehensible form. When you want to visualize data in the SAP Web UI in a more graphical way the standard possibilities available to you are rather limited. Luckily there are ways to overcome these limitations. When you combine SAP with the graphical power of AnyChart JS Charts a whole range of new possibilities will become available to you.

In this blog I will describe how you can integrate AnyChart in the SAP Web UI with relative ease, how you can feed AnyChart objects with SAP data using both a ‘pull’ and a ‘push’ mechanism and how you can respond in the SAP backend to the events triggered from user interaction with an AnyChart object.

AnyChart JavaScript Charting Libraries 7.13.0 Released, Source Code Opened February 28th, 2017 by AnyChart Team

Reliability has always been our main priority at AnyChart JS Charts. And you definitely know you can trust us, with our JavaScript charting libraries’ public roadmaps, consistent releases, and highly experienced Quality Assurance team. Today we are glad to tell you about another major step that we have just taken in this regard:

AnyChart is now open!

AnyChart Opens Source Code of Its JavaScript Charting Libraries and Releases Major 7.13.0 Update Basically, it means we fully opened the following:
Source code of our JavaScript charting libraries – it is now available for review and download on GitHub.
Issue tracker – so you can help us further improve our products, if you can/want.
Build scripts – to let you compile custom binaries with the chart types you need.
List of branches – to demonstrate our development cycle and prove you can trust us.

However, that’s not all! In addition to becoming open, we introduced multiple important improvements and new features with the new major release. Let’s see now what else was added to the 7.13.0 versions of our JavaScript charting libraries – AnyChart (JS charts), AnyStock (timeline data based JS charts), AnyMap (JS maps), and AnyGantt (JS charts for project/resource management).

JavaScript Charting 7.13.0: New Features in AnyChart, AnyStock, AnyMap, AnyGantt

AnyChart JS Charts Plugins for Angular Ember jQuery Meteor NodeJS and React Plugins
To make using our JavaScript charting libraries with the most popular JavaScript frameworks as easy as possible, we created special plugins for AngularJS, Ember.js, jQuery, Meteor, Node.js, and React. Save your time and effort by using these plugins when utilizing one of these frameworks.
JavaScript Charting and Sharing JS Charts on Social Networks Facebook Twitter Pinterest and LinkedIn Social Network Sharing
Now any JS (HTML5) chart powered by our JavaScript charting libraries can be easily shared on social networks Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Twitter. We included this function in the context menu, so this can be quickly done from there. Properties specific to a particular social network can be set in the exports namespace.
Vertical Charts in AnyChart and AnyStock JavaScript Charting Libraries Vertical Charts
Most of the series in our AnyChart and AnyStock Javascript charting libraries are now also available in the vertical orientation. Whenever that is what you’re looking for, you are welcome to use the isVertical() method. To make the process of building the most popular vertical chart types even more straightforward, we added special constructors, verticalArea() and verticalLine(). Look at vertical charts in our Gallery.
Pareto Chart in AnyChart Pareto Chart
The Pareto chart, named after prominent economist and sociologist Vilfredo Pareto, is currently one of the most popular chart types in the field of management. And we simply could not make you get along without it anymore. So, let’s all welcome the Pareto chart type! Starting from the 7.13.0 version, AnyChart offers it out of the box. Now you can easily create a Pareto chart by using the anychart.pareto() constructor.
Step Forward and Backward Stick and Jump Line Charts in AnyChart and AnyStock Step, Stick, Jump Line Charts
Please also meet these major new arrivals to the list of chart types supported in AnyChart and AnyStock. We introduced Backward and Forward modifications of the Step chart as well as the Jump Line and Stick. The Step Line Forward and Step Line Backward charts are now available with the help of the stepDirection() method. To add a Jump Line chart or create a Stick chart, use the jumpLine() and stick() methods.
Custom Series Drawing in AnyChart and AnyStock Custom Series Drawing
Imagination is freedom. You definitely need to easily visualize your data exactly the way you see it. And we keep on doing our best to deliver you the ultimate customization features. Now we added the new rendering() method to AnyChart and AnyStock so you could put any creative idea into action and build any custom chart. Custom drawing examples: Frog Chart, Cherry Chart, and Column Chart with Rounded Edges.
Legend Customization in AnyChart AnyStock and AnyMap JavaScript Charting Libraries Legend Customization
We added new options to work with the legend in AnyChart, AnyMap and AnyStock. First, the itemsLayout() now lets you improve the legend’s visual appearance, especially when multiple series are displayed. Second, the legend can now be placed inside a data plot (the positionMode() method) to facilitate a more efficient use of space on a chart. Third, the drag() method allows you to easily position the legend on your JS chart.
New Technical Indicators for JavaScript Charting with AnyStock: AMA, MMA, ATR, KDJ, BBands, BBands, %B, BBands Width, and Stochastic Oscillator (Fast, Slow, Full) New Technical Indicators
To expand the range of stock JS (HTML5) charting opportunities available in AnyStock, we added more of technical indicators: Adaptive Moving Average (AMA); Modified Moving Average (MMA); Average True Range (ATR); KDJ; Bollinger Bands (BBands); Bollinger Bands %B (BBands %B); Bollinger Bands Width (BBands Width); Stochastic Oscillator (Fast / Slow / Full). Learn more of all the technical indicators in our Docs.
Individual Data Point Settings in AnyStock Individual Point Settings
Sometimes applying individual settings to a particular data point can be very useful. Although that might not be habitual for stock JS (HTML5) charts, we decided to provide you with this great customization opportunity in the AnyStock JavaScript charting library. Starting from the 7.13.0 release, you are allowed use the allowPointsSettings parameter in the anychart.stock() constructor to enable this option.
Resource Chart Interactivity: Hover and Select in JavaScript Charting with AnyGantt Resource Chart Interactivity
With the previous, 7.12.0 release of AnyGantt, we introduced the redesigned Resource chart. In the new, 7.13.0 version of this HTML5 / JS library, we are glad to present you several major new features added this time. First of all, now you can enable and adjust the Hover and Select interactivity settings in our new Resource charts.
Resource Chart Events Resource Chart Events

First of all, now you can enable and adjust the Hover and Select interactivity settings in our new Resource charts.
Resource Chart Tooltips Resource Chart Tooltips
Third, we have also added Tooltips to the new Resource chart with the current 7.13.0 release of AnyGantt. They will help you display additional information about each activity you are visualizing, in a convenient, greatly interactive way.
Connector Customization in Gantt Charts Connector Customization in Gantt Charts
Of course, we could not leave our Gantt charts without proper attention with regard to new features. This time we made tuning the visual appearance of the Live Editing mode in HTML5 Gantt charts more flexible by adding the new Connector Customization features. You are welcome to take a look at them in action in AnyGantt’s Gallery.

We hope you like the 7.13.0 versions of our JavaScript charting libraries and enjoy the openness of AnyChart!
