Extending the SAP UI5 Example from the book "Practical Workflow for SAP"

Hi all,

in chapter 27 of the ref. book (3rd edition, 2014), a complete example of using SAP UI5 together with SAP business workflow is given.

I have tried it out on our system and it works well.

Now I want to extend the example by adding a further button ("Show Belege") in the detail view, to show a table with that information. For that I have already installed a "SAP Gateway Service" to provide the needed data to the application.

I am faced with two problems at the SAP UI5 side:

1. What is better, (A) to introduce a further fragment in the Detail View for the new function (I suppose this will have to be an XML part, too)

   or (B) to introduce a further controller/XML-View pair ?

   (Note I want to stay at the XML style as far as possible)

2. I have not found a good example for using the "table control" within an XML view. Does anybody know a good example which could fit for example into solution (A) or (B)?

Best Regards Johann

Hi Johann,

I'd actually suggest you move this discussion or raise a new one in the UI Development Toolkit for HTML5 Developer Center

I take it you are using the Approve Requests app ??  Just tell them that. No need to worry about the workflow side of things here as your question is about adding user interface capabilities within the app only - which won't affect how that app interacts  with workflow.
