Need to show total task number in Inbox like previous UWL

Hi Gurus,

Custom inbox has been developed similar to BPM inbox using UI5 toolkit.

Here a new requirement is that, to display the total number of task in the box i.e., task count.

I have a piece of sample code to do this functionality , but one doubt in that code snippet is

var url = "/databinding/proxy/http/host:port/.........";

above mentioned line is that default one to get the count or what URL i am supposed to add in that.

Step by step docs or lonk also appreciated.

    You need to use $count to get the number of records from entityset (or collection) for e.g.$count

    • Hi Ragav,

      I think both oEvent and oControlEvent are same and would give you the instance of the Event.

      oEvent.mParameters is referring to the attributes of the instance and getParameters would give the value of the attribute of the instance.
