Overview of view element properties bound to context attributes

30 Views

Is there any standard or custom tool out there that shows an overview of ALL the view element properties bound to context for a given view?

It happens to me frequently when developing in WDA that the impact of changing a certain context attribute in a view is not immediately visible.

For example, in a view with several elements, some attribute (or the attribute properties REQUIRED / READ_ONLY / VISIBLE / ENABLED) could be bound to one or two inputfields (hidden inside several containers). If modifying some component this way you wouldn't notice the impact until you try for example to delete the attribute.

It would help both to avoid this errors and for overall component design to have an overview binding table which shows something like this:

ViewUI elementPropertyContext attribute / Context attrib. propertyV_VIEWINPUT1READ_ONLYNODE.ATTRIBUTE.READ_ONLYV_VIEWINPUT1VALUENODE.ATTRIBUTE

Does such thing exist?

I searched a bit inside package SWDP_METADATA_API_VIEW but found nothing...
