Feature wishlist for commonly used SAP Design Studio components

SAP Design Studio is one tool, for which efficient design is critical for good performance. Dashboards that are modified haphazardly, based on changing client requirements tend to fare poorly from the performance standpoint. Given that, it is important to know precisely what each SAP Design Studio component is capable of doing, its limitations, its impact on performance etc. This knowledge helps immensely during the design phase of the dashboard when finalizing on the components to use.

With that in mind, I have been keeping track of some of the limitations of commonly used components in SAP Design Studio 1.3. Check out the table below for my wish list of features for these components !

Basic Components
Checkbox
Color changeable for Checkmark / Checkbox
Checkbox groups – like the Radio button group
