Basic Structure

Chart cards can include variations of the following elements. However, what is displayed should match the overall content of the chart pattern that it will navigate to.

A. Chart title (mandatory)

B. KPI metric

C. Legend: Up to 4 legend items can be shown on the card. If there are more than 4, the fourth legend item will indicate how many additional items there are.

D. Timestamp

E. Trend or subtitle label

F. Chart plot: The chart plot area will be the same as in the card’s associated chart pattern. It is recommended to either include the x- or y-axis labels, but not both. It is also suggested for the x-axis labels, to display only the first and last labels or a maximum of three labels. For y-axis labels, a maximum of 3 labels and showing gridlines is recommended.

Variations

The chart card supports the existing KPI components available in the SAP Fiori for iOS SDK. Either the KPI progress view or the regular KPI can be placed in the card; however, for the KPI progress view, only the small variation can be used.

When using these components, the chart title label on the card becomes the only label for the KPI – no other labels for the KPI will be included. Only one of these KPI components can be used in the chart card at a time.
