Post subject: Design a custom report element

SAP BI 4.2 SP4

Is it possible that we could design our own Report Element?

Already aware we can create our own custom functions.

The area I refer to is where we insert Report Elements to Web Intelligence reports, tables, bar, box, column, gauges, geographic etc.

If yes how does one go about this, I would like to create a new geo map using either open source maps so I can plot longitude and latitude, drill through, filter content and zoom or move the map.

Aware of CMAPs but there are open source options out there that I have already incorporated and works really well (all be it limited), but alas I am restricted now with amount of characters in a single cell and getting #Overflow because of the many concatenations of map points to plot on map.

So only other solution I can think of is to create my own custom Report Element and have it deployed to the server and client for customer usage.

Hopefully this makes sense and I will answer any questions or elaborate where needed. We are not interested in CMAPS due to it's limitations and cost when using Google API keys.

Can be done. I`ve not done it, I think I started looking at trying to get some D3 charts or something in there once but got sidetracked.
