Custom visualizations in the TIBCO Spotfire Web Player created in version 7.0 or lower no longer respond to user interaction
The ASP.NET based API, used to create views for custom visualizations on the Web Player (with interaction), is deprecated from version 7.5. Instead, users will see a fallback visualization that only calls the rendering (RenderCore) method but does not provide UI interaction. This has been replaced by a new API called CustomVisualView.
Older visualizations deployed on Spotfire 7.5 will be correctly rendered. However, the visual will no longer respond to user input. This means that all the graphical components will look exactly the same as in version 7.0 and earlier. All mouse and keyboard interaction will appear disabled. The content of the visualization will also be static, no longer responding to changes to the analysis, such as selections, marking and filtering.
In Spotfire 7.5, the API the older ASP.NET API used as part of the controller (interaction handling) of the custom visualizations was removed.
The replacement API is called CustomVisualView. You can find an example of how to create CustomVisualView in the following community article:
