Passing Siebel-Generated Graphics to a Smart Report
Some specialized graphics in Smart Reports are too complex to be defined using AFC and sscustom graph classes. These must be generated in the Siebel application and transferred to the Actuate report as bitmaps by way of OLE automation (or similar application-to-application object communication). Some examples of passed graphics in Smart Reports are the three charts in the Account Service Detail Report: Severity Distribution, Service Request Substatus, and Aging By Severity.
Because creation and modification of specialized classes in Siebel Tools are not supported, Siebel Systems does not support creation and modification of passed graphics in Smart Reports by customers. If you have a requirement of this kind, contact Siebel Technical Services.
