Xcelsius Dashboard Add-On Components

Xcelsius dashboard add-ons provide additional components to further extend the functionality and visual content of your Xcelsius dashboards.  The following is an overview of getdVeloping, Inovista and Centigon components.

Get Dveloping - Xcelsius Dashboard Add-On Components

Advanced iFrame

One of our most powerful addons to date. This component allows you to embed web content within your dashboard. That in itself doesn’t sound too powerful, but imagine if you had a dashboard and within that you embeded another dashboard, kind of like the native SWF loader component. Now it’s sounding more useful. Not only are you able to embed dashboards within each other, the Advanced IFrame component also permits you to pass data to and from the child and parent dashboards.

With this parent <-> child communication, and the ability to seamlessly integrate dashboards inside each other, you are now able to split your development of complex dashboards into individual models and then use the Advanced IFrame component to “stitch” them back together into a cohesive, complete model. Never before did you have the ability to truly parallel develop with Xcelsius.

We have used this modular approach in some of our most complicated dashboard projects, and the ability to split each page / screen into it’s own individual XLF has been invaluable. No longer are we fighting against corrupt files when they become too large, or risking impacting the whole dashboard when making changes to one screen.

CSV Connector

CSV Connector for SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards and SAP Crystal Dashboard Design provides direct connectivity to data files with point and click simplicity. CSV connector is the perfect solution for organizations that need quick and simple connectivity to data with minimal investment and infrastructure.

CSV Connector also offers a new data export component, allowing business users to copy data to their clipboard or export data to their desktop with no server software required.

d3 Chord Diagram

The chord diagram is a data visualization displaying the relationships between data. The data is arranged in a circle with the relationships represented as arcs between segments. A good example of a chord diagram is showing the states people live in now compared to where they grew up. This diagram will show the trend in the migration of people to and from various states. The d3 Chord Diagram add-on supports both SWF and HTML5 output from Xcelsius.

Data Mover

A mobile compatible alternative to the Source Data component. This is a direct mirror of the Source Data component, yet comes with both SWF and HTML5 support, whether you are dCoding your dashboard, or using native SAP BI Mobile, you can leverage this component.

Data Table

Add a fully interactive and searchable table of data to your dashboard. This component works for both HMTL5 and SWF dashboards and has the following key features:

-Search box to do live filtering on data
-Turn pagination on or have a vertical scroll table
-Bind your data directly to a UNX using Query Browser


Do you need to delay moving data in your dashboard? Perhaps you need to show a loading screen for a few seconds whilst some calculations are performed? The delay component can provide this capability for you. In addition to delaying the movement of data, delay can be used to continually loop, much like the SWF play component. Using delay in this way, you can achieve animated effects in your SWF and HTML5 dashboards.

Essentials Bundle

Essentials Bundle is a developer toolkit directly integrated inside of SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards and SAP Crystal Dashboard design. Developers can can drag and drop powerful data filtering, aggregation, sorting, and design aesthetics. Replace Excel logic and reduce the number of BI Queries leading to increased dashboard performance and a significant reduction in development time

Export as Excel

Allow users to export the data from their dashboards as Excel or CSV. Data can be downloaded as a single excel workbook with multiple worksheets or multiple excel files. Note: this component only works with HTML5 dashboards.

Export as PDF

Allow users to export the data from their dashboards as a formatted table in a PDF document. Multiple ranges of data can be combined into a single PDF document displaying each range as a formatted table. Note: this component only works with HTML5 dashboards.

Flat UI

When developing dashboards in Xcelsius, we seem to be constantly layering multiple components on top of each other to get the look we are after. Our goal is to make developing dashboards easier and quicker. We’ve created this pack of 6 add-ons that have a flat UI look and feel, whilst maintaining the same functionality you’d expect from their native Xcelsius counterpart. In some cases we’ve enhanced the native functionality (binding the state of a checkbox for example). Includes: Button, Check Box, Radio Button, Slider and Dual Slider, Toggle Switch, Dropdown.

HTML5 Vars

A mobile replacement for the SWF Flash Vars. This component allows you to pass data into your dCoded dashboard via the website URL.

Trend Icons

Showing an indication of trend in your data can be a great addition to a visualization. The native trend icons are only SWF compatible, so will not appear in your HTML5 dashboard. We have created this simple component to allow you to show trends (either upwards, even or downwards) as either arrows or signal strength bars. The colors can all be customized and the component is both SWF and HTML5 compatible.
