Component Usage (Urgent)

Hi All,

Can a view ui container contain more than one component instance. If so at runtime can i choose any one of the instance and create the component and display it.



Hi Mahesh,

Regarding your question:

Unfortunately I don`t know any tutorials or examples about how to use Web Dynpro Component Interfaces but I will try to explain the main idea behind: Web Dynpro Component Interface is very similar to plain Java interface - you describe some methods and after in your you class you must implement them.

So, you can create Web Dynpro Component Interface, describe context structure, methods, events for component interface controller, create one or more Interface View Definitions and used models. Afterwards in your Web Dynpro Component you declare new created Web Dynpro Component Interface as Implemented Interface and all metadata is copied (Interface Views, Used Models, etc.) and you have to implement methods, event handlers and so on.

In my example I use Web Dynpro Component Interface in Main component as Used Web Dynpro Component and embedd Interface View Definition to ViewContainerUIElement. But exact implementation you will specify on run-time using code:

final String componentName = "";//full name of component including package

final IWDComponentUsage usage = wdThis.wdGetViewChildComponentUsage(); 

if (usage.hasActiveComponent() && !componentName.equals( usage.getComponentUsageInfo().getName()) ) {

if (!usage.hasActiveComponent()) { 
	} catch(WDRuntimeException e) {
		wdComponentAPI.getMessageManager().reportException(new WDNonFatalException(e), false);

I hope now it is clear.

Best regards, Maksim Rashchynski.
