Creating a new window

You can create a new window either manually or using a wizard.

To create a new window:
  1. In Window Manager, expand the Business Objects tree.
  2. Select the relevant business object, then on the Actions list, click New Window.
    A new window appears, and the Attributes tree is automatically displayed. A default name is automatically given to the window, which will appear in the window's title bar at runtime.

You cannot rename a window that is open in the window editor – so we recommend that you complete the initial design, then close and rename the window design.

  1. Add the required controls. For more information, see Adding controls to a window.
  2. If you want this window to be the default used by this business object, then on the Business Objects tree, select the window, then on the Actions list, click Set as Default.
  3. Click .

You can make a copy of an existing window from within the same business object. To do this, on the Business Objects tree, select the relevant window, then on the Actions list, click Copy Window.

You can rename windows that are not open in the window editor by selecting them in the Business Objects tree and then clicking Rename Window in the Actions list. You cannot rename windows that are open in the window editor.

You can open existing windows to modify them by double-clicking them in the Business Objects tree.
