Hi there,  

After several years on VA 7.x, I'm now on VA 8.2 !

 

It's really great to use new feature but i've got some troubles to use one of them. 

 

The DATA DRIVEN CONTENT ! A New feature at great potential that allow you to use external graph like d3.js or google chart into VA report's.

 

I'm very hyped by this but at the moment the most valuable informations i have are here :

Working with Data-Driven Content in support.sas.com 

- SAS Software Git Hub

 

 

So if any of you have any information on this subject, it would be nice if he communicated it to me !  

 

Regards, 

GM.

HI GM,

Data Driven Content is a new feature for VA and not a lot of information is available yet. We do provide this topic:

http://go.documentation.sas.com/?cdcId=vacdc&cdcVersion=8.2&docsetId=varef&docsetTarget=n109mqtyl6qu...

Hopefully you have already found it.

Currently the user doc does not link to the Github repository yet, but I will try and get that added soon so that more users will find it and contribute.

Thanks,
Sam

You can see an example of Data driven content by simply dragging over the Dynamic Text object onto the canvas.  If you look at the source html code behind the scenes then you will see that the default view is data driven content.  Initially, I tried to reference my html files from another server, but I was not successful.  I had success when I placed my html (data driven content) on my VA server in  /opt/sas/viya/home/var/www/html/htmlcommons.   I can then reference the file using this syntax:   http://yourVAserver/htmlcommons/yourfile.html

 

You can test this by taking the source code mentioned above and save it to the htmlcommons directory.

Keith,

For VA to use HTML content on another server, the other server must allow its content to be displayed in an IFrame. Could this be your issue?
