SAPUI5 XML vs JS example gist


I created a gist where you can see a simple app-page example created with JavaScript and at the bottom the corresponding XML if it would be a view (without controller.

Maybe this helps how to understand and "switch" mentally between the JavaScript syntax examples (for example here for a button SAPUI5 SDK - Demo Kit) and the now preferred XML notation of the views (SAPUI5 Explored).

Here is the gist:

The example on jsbin is here:

JS Bin - Collaborative JavaScript Debugging

How do I get from JavaScript code...

var oSimpleForm = new sap.ui.layout.form.SimpleForm({ ...

to a XML view notation:

<mvc:View xmlns:f="sap.ui.layout.form" ...

<f:SimpleForm ...

or vice versa.

Hope this helps someone, at the beginning it was a mind-challenging exercise to switch between those two notations.
