Flexmonster’s Biweekly Report: New Enhancements in 2.201 Minor Release

Antonina Krus posted on December 14th, 2015

It has been almost two weeks since the new version of the Component was released. We hope that you have already tried the new functionality that we made for you. Please check out the new portion of all 2.201 minor release updates below:


1.[NEW] Java RESTful API project that illustrates how to get data from Relational DBs and use our Java Compressor.

2.[NEW] Drill-through for Mondrian is now available (using Accelerator only).

3.[NEW] The list of available aggregations for fields of “date string” and “datetime” data types was extended with Count and Distinct Count aggregations.

4.[NEW HTML5/FLASH] The simplest way to define JSON data – in embedPivotComponent() function using data property. Even dataSourceType is not needed in this case:

flexmonster.embedPivotComponent(“”, “100%”, “600”, {

   data: [

       { “Category” : “Accessories”, “Color” : “green”, “Quantity” : 22 }


}, true);

5.[NEW FLEX] The toolbar in Flex All-in-One demo was updated with new icons and new options – ‘Connect > To local JSON’ and switcher between Compact, Classic and Flat grid views in ‘Options’.



6.[FIX] Closing Details View after switching to Flat View.

7.[FIX] Fixed issue with wrong numbers in distinct count.

8.[FIX] 2.2 version introduces simplified naming of dimensions, hierarchies, measures and members for CSV/JSON data sources. There were backward compatibility issues with naming in reports generated by previous component’s versions which are fixed:

  • Backward compatibility in members naming for expands, drills and sorting works fine for both: report object and report XML.
  • Backward compatibility for addDataRecord API call.
  • Backward compatibility for dimensions naming when data is set via API.
  • Backward compatibility for date hierarchies like [Date].[Date].[Year], [Date].[Date].[Month], [Date].[Date].[Day], where 3 and more elements were used in names.

9.[FIX] Connection to MSAS via XMLA: the issue when ‘Invalid datasource or catalog’ message was shown if there are no KPIs in cube was fixed.

10.[FIX] Issue with saving  fieldSeparator for TSV was fixed. Now it is saved in report XML the following way: <fieldSeparator><![CDATA[ ]]></fieldSeparator>

11.[FIX] Values of “datetime”, “time” and “date string” fields are formatted based on date/time patterns only if Sum, Average, Product, Min or Max aggregation is selected for them. They are formatted as numbers if one of the following aggregations is used to aggregate them: Count, Distinct Count, % of Grand Total, % of Column, % of Row or Index.

12.[FIX] When you select “date string” field with check box in Fields List is put in rows by default.

13.[FIX ACCELERATOR] The issue with connecting to Accelerator via JavaScript (connectTo, setReport methods) was fixed.

14.[FIX ACCELERATOR] The issue with CORS was fixed.

15.[FIX ACCELERATOR] The issue with freezing on “Loading KPIs…” was fixed.

16.[FIX ACCELERATOR] Prevent terminating Accelerator app by hitting Enter key.



17.[FIX] The height of Fields List was adjusted for mobile layout.

18.[FIX] The issue with truncated labels in PDF export was fixed.

19.[FIX] Image cell renderers were fixed.
