Having seen SAP Lumira Discovery applications, many of our customers wanted to customize their SAP Lumira Designer charts with some amount of self-service functionalities especially around the context menu with features like swapping axis with some other dimension, changing chart properties or exporting them for reporting needs.

We at Visual BI have now added the context menu to our charts using the Visual BI Extensions to enable features similar to SAP Lumira Discovery context menus.

Just like the SAP Lumira Discovery charts, the VBX chart’s Context Menu provides end users more runtime flexibility to analyze the data better and derive insights by allowing users to alter chart properties.

Custom Select Context Menu options

As part of our Visual BI Extensions(VBX) property sheet for chart, we offer users the flexibility to select the different context menu options they would like to see during runtime. You can also choose the type of navigation to enable the context menu on the mobile devices.
