Modify default TM1web layout

Post by JamiseBondi »

Hi guys,

Is it possible to modify the existing layout of TM1web such that you can hide certain banners or buttons i.e. to change the default layout of tm1web as it's rendered in a browser. For example. the 'banner' that contains "IBM Cognos TM1Web on the left and on the RHS is .... Help | Logout
Can this banner be hidden or modified in any way?

Many thanks

Short of direct editing the source files in the install location that would then get overwritten any time you upgrade, I'm not aware of how to do this. I guess you could create a custom browser extension that dynamically updates the html of the page for all users. You could even build your own custom webpage and leverage the TM1Web api for rendering cubeviews, websheets.

Are you trying to hide it due to screen area issues or are you trying to insert custom hyperlinks?

Hi,

PRODUCT_NAME:"IBM® Planning Analytics 2.0.9",
ABOUT_STR:"About",
HELP_TOOLTIP_STR:"Help",
LOG_OUT_STR:"Log Out",

On windows installation for PAL 2.0.9 you can find this "magic words" in the file
<installation path>\webapps\tm1web\scripts\tm1web\common\nls\...\CommonMessages.js

(... means folder for specified language: "cs", "da" , "de" etc)

Open file with admin rights, set words value to blank or whatever you want, save file, refresh web page (no need restart any PAL services).

I also have a requirement to add a new Icon which will launch another site. The requirement is to add the Icon on the Top Banner, just after Log Out

Not sure which files need to be updated for 2.0.9.4

Thanks

Sorry,

If your default language is English/US (default for TM1), then NLS (National Language Support) does not apply.
Should to be corrected immediately in the files
<installation path>\webapps\tm1web\scripts\tm1web\standalone\
TM1WebApp.js or TM1WebAppCam.js (if you use CAM)

Hi,

PAL 2.0.9.4 use PASS (Planning Analytics Spreadsheet Services). Unfortunately I don't have this version.
I don't know the difference between the classic TM1 Web and PASS.

But you can use developer tools in Chrome, find the class of the element, then find the file where that class is defined, and write/rewrite what you need

It should be possible to change the default styles (including hiding some elements) by modifying the CSS files. I remember I had a requirement to enable separate URLs for different TM1 models, so I modified some TM1Web JS files used on the login page. The custom javascript was reading the URL parameters of the login page, then it was selecting the corresponding model and submitting the login form, so the users would be logging into the preselected TM1 server based on the URL parameter.

I recommend creating an installation and customization guide so you can document it all and re-apply after upgrading TM1.
As mentioned previously you should understand there is a chance such customization may stop working with the next TM1 version upgrade

I'm entertaining the idea of customising the GUI such that it is no longer IBM branded.
