  • Simple HTML WebFOCUS reports can be viewed in any browser.
  • Support for presenting images and graphs in HTML, DHTML and DHTML compound reports is provided using an image embedding facility based on the client browser. Output generated by IE browsers or in scenarios where the browser is unknown (such as distributed by ReportCaster) support image inclusion through the creation of web archive file (.mht). For all other browsers images are base64 encoded within the generated .htm file.
  • Graph Request Notes
    • Server-generated Graphs refer to traditional Information Builders' graph requests that are generated on the Reporting Server and then embedded as a bitmap or vector image in a document or webpage. This includes the following formats:
      • Bitmap: PNG, GIF, JPG
      • Vector: PDF (but not Active PDF), SVG
    • Browser-generated Graphs refer to graphs that are rendered inside the browser. This is done using JavaScript in HTML5-compatible browsers and by Flash in older versions of IE that are either not HTML5 compatible or are being run in a mode which is not HTML5 compatible. Browser-generated graphs are utilized in both standard HTML5 output ("FORMAT JSCHART") and in Information Builders' Active Technologies ("FORMAT AHTML" and "FORMAT AFLEX, APDF"). Note: Applet-based charts (Java Graph engine running client-side) have been deprecated in WebFOCUS 8 and are no longer tracked in this matrix.
  • Mac Users: Firefox browser is supported on the Macintosh OS. You may use Safari Web browser as previously outlined in the Browser Support Matrix for your WebFOCUS 8.1.x release. Firefox browser functionality is consistent with Safari Web browser.
  • Adobe Reader Support:
    • Adobe XI is certified
    • Adobe X is certified
    • Adobe Acrobat Reader Version 9 is supported
  • Drilldown links do not work when using an embedded PDF viewer available in some browser versions. Refer to the browser's configuration information on how to change the Application Options settings for the relevant content types so that the browser will automatically use the Adobe Reader.
  • Visual Discovery AE browser support follows the Silverlight plug-in browser statement (http://www.microsoft.com/getsilverlight/get-started/install/default.aspx) guidelines that differ within each browser type based on the end user's operating system.
