An interesting question, I promise !

Hi Friends:

We have a peculiar requirement at a client.

We have a Web DynPro application which is a insurance quote or application running in the portal.

This web dynpro application is a tab in the portal content area. If a new business process like a quote for a different customer, is started by clicking a link or something, a new tab has to be formed in the portal content area. So the agent can switch between different tabs of web dynpro applications with out losing the data he already entered in each of them.

The question is when the new tab is programmatically created and displayed next to the existing tabs, the page is getting refreshed, which makes it necessary to save the data in the already open tabs to be saved prior to opening the new tab. This is not acceptable, due to various reasons.

But we saw what we want in our portal functionality itself. It happens when you try to open a iview or a role or page etc., from with in the portal content area, a new tab is being formed with out refreshing the whole page. How can we imitate this functionality. This could satisfy our requirement.

Your input is greately appreciated.

    Interesting case indeed 😊

    Unfortunately, I haven't got enough time to really look into it but I have some ideas.

    First, try to disect to code in order used for the portal in order to find out what it does.

    It will have to use javascript and client side eventing (for various reasons) and this is what you should focus on.

    If you only have a few tabs, you might manage to create them during the first rendering of the page, but at the same time hide them. Then you can activate them later using javascript.

    Good luck
