Creation of WEB UI Component and navigation with standard component
Next step is to create a new field as per the
For example, let us create a new field ‘Number’
for Sales Cycle->Campaigns->Products assignment block as a drop down field
having values One, Two and Three. This field should be made available for Mobile
Sales Application also.
Go to the desired
transaction view in WEB UI.
Click on the ‘Show
Configurable Areas’ icon in the overview page of the transaction. This would
enable all AET supported configurable views in the current WEB UI screen within
Click on your corresponding
dotted frame for the view where you want to add the new custom field.
The AET tool would now open
up the ‘View configuration’ (which has the integrated UI configuration tool)
pop up window displaying all the configurations available for the selected view
(both standard and custom).
Now click on the ‘Create
New Field’ button. By using this option, we can create new custom field first
and then add it to all the configurations required.
The AET tool would now
display a pop-up with all supported Business Objects for the current selected
view. Select the desired business object from the list as per the business
Once the Business Object
has been selected, the AET would now give the pop-up for supported Sub-objects
(Part of BO) of the selected business object.
The main window would now display all existing extensions/enhancements, if any,
for the business object that you have selected of the view.
Select the Sub-object for
the business object as per the requirement and click on ‘OK’ button.
A new extension field is
created with an automatically generated Enhancement Id starting with ‘ZAEXT’
and Field Id starting with ‘ZZAFLD’ and a new pop-up is displayed where in
you can give your desired values for field properties like ‘Field Label’,
’Search-Relevant’, ’Data type’ etc. Once you have entered the data type
for the field, the Length, Check Table and Search Help properties are enabled.
10. The ‘Status’ shows in which state is the
generation currently in. Yellow triangle indicates incomplete/in process and
green square indicates completed/generated status. Erroneous status is indicated
using a red circle.
11. We also have option for enabling the supported
functionalities for the created field like ‘Mobile’, ’R/3 Adapter’,
’BW Reporting’, Check Table, Search Help etc.
12. The tool also provides options to provide
DropDown Listbox for the new field created as well as the Translation for all
the text entered for the field.
13. Once all the field properties are entered as
desired, you can click on ‘Back’ Button to save the extension field and
14. Now the enhancement has been saved for the
field and it would be displayed in the Enhancement List in the main page
‘Custom Fields’ assignment block of the AET pop up window with status as
incomplete/in process(yellow triangle).
15. Next step is to generate the created custom
field. To save and generate the extension field, select the newly created
enhancement id from the list displayed and click on ‘Save and Generate’
16. Now a pop-up for Transport Request would be
prompted where you need to give in your workbench TR and click on ‘Choose’
if you already have a TR for field creation. Otherwise you can create your own
TR using the ‘Create’ button in the pop up.
17. Once you have selected the TR, the system would
generate the AET field and status would be turned to green square indicating
that the AET field has been generated successfully.
a DYNPRO popup error happens and field generation fails from the UI tool
indicated by a red circle as status. In this scenario, we need to re-generate
the created field manually from the GUI. In order to re-generate the
enhancement, go to transaction ‘se38’ in GUI, open the report
‘AXT_EXT_GENERATE’ and enter the Extension ID of the custom field created
and check the option ‘Generate All Extensions’ and then click on
‘Execute’ and the enhancement would be generated successfully.
Before you can execute the report for generating the enhancement, close the AET
tool in UI to release the lock on the object. Also, you need to have
authorization (developer access key) for the report execution. The selection of
which enhancements are to be generated happens automatically, if you create,
delete, or change an enhancement.
18. Once the enhancement has been saved and
generated, it gets added to the available fields list. You can create a new
custom configuration if required, or else if the configuration already exists
for your scenario you can select it from the displayed list in the web ui config
tool (from GUI or AET). Then the newly created field would be displayed in the
‘Available Fields’ list, from where you can add it to the ‘Displayed
field’ to be displayed in the WEB UI view .This process of adding the new
field to the ui configuration can be done either from the WEB UI AET tool or
from the GUI BSP component UI config tool.
For our example, let’s see how to proceed.
Click on the ‘Show
Configurable Areas’ icon.
2. Click the Products view in the UI screen.
3. The AET tool window would be displayed (UI
