Returning the selected row value on Click - SAP Sample SDK

Hi all,

I am working on "Simple Table", one of the sample SDK components provided by SAP.

I need to extend the solution with "Row Selections" and returning the selected row values to BIAL script. I have added properties in Contribution.xml file for "OnClick" event and added functions in component.js to respond to "Click" event.

However I am not able to get this working , I always get the return values as "Undefined".

Any advise on methodology to achieve this with sample SDK implementation code /references would be of great help.

    I finally got this working using following code snippets,

    This was added in component.js to respond to clicking event.

    this.jqTable.on("click", "tr", function showText (evt) {


    rowSelected = $(this).text();




    This was added subsequently to return the selected row,

    this.rowClicked = function(value) {

    if (value === undefined) {

    return rowSelected;

    else {

    return this;



    This was added in contribution.ztl to link to BIAL script function

    /* Use to get Text of selected row */

    String getRowClicked() {*

    return this.rowClicked;


    Following entries are made in contribution.xml

    <property id="onclick" type="ScriptText" title="On Click" group="Events" />

    <property id="rowClicked" type="String" title="Row Clicked" visible="false" />

    You can modify the return values based on your requirements. This will help you to return values to BIAL script function and further use them in DS environment.

    @Michael Howles post Design Studio 1.2 SDK - Enhancing the 'Simple Table' SDK Component helped me to achieve this. Thanks Michael.
