Launch a report from Xcelsius dashboard

I have just a quick question around the FSCommand component used to open a webi report in the BI widget.

The user guide on BI Widget states the following:


Launching a report from a CX Dashboard

Within a desktop widget, you have the ability to launch a parameterized

report or Xcelsius dashboard stored in the repository. This report will launch

in the BI Widgets viewer window.

Use the FS Command component in Xcelsius to allow opening the documents

in InfoView.

There are three fields to configure in the FS Command Component:

u2022 Label

u2022 FS Command

Enter the document ID in the first field.

Enter the query string in the second field.

You can dynamically concatenate the OpenDocument URL and bind it to

the second FS Command Field. The URL contains the iDocID, the document

Type, and the Host Name

Example URL Syntax

openDocument.jsp?iDocID=5179&sType=wid&sReportName=Sales Pipeline

Supported Document Type:wid

Publishing the SWF

You must publish your Xcelsius visualization as a SWF file in order to use it

as a widget.

In Xcelsius, select File > Export > Flash (SWF). Save the file to a repository.

You can then use BI Widgets to locate and open the SWF as a desktop



I need clarification on the opendoc url used:

The example uses iDocID, sReportName and sType.

However, can we also use sRefresh and lsS to pass a parameter of a prompt?

Thank you for your swift reply.
