SAPUI5 how to bind index/position property within odata aggregation

Hi experts/colleagues,

I am developing a table into my SAPUI5 application and for one of the columns I need to specifiy an ID attribute
based on index/position from odata aggregation got from my backend service.

Is it possible something like I did in the first column for the id attribute the following code ?

id="trackingNumber{index}" where trackingNumber is a static string and {index} would be ideally the position within the oData response.


<table:Column width="100px">

<Label text="Tracking Num."/>

<table:template id="trackingNumber{index}"><Textview text="{ItemBoxTrackingNo}"/></table:template>


<table:Column width="95px">

<Label text="Id"/>

<table:template><Textview text="{OrderID}"/></table:template>



Or if you know a solution to implement this, some method to read the position / the index of the object been read from oData response into table,

I will appreciate any hint or feedback.

    id is a static field and also its don't having the binding aggregation. so its not possible.

    And through model binding you can achieve the table functionalities. id is not necessary.

      Hi Sai,

      After implemented you correct solution, I had to replace an oData binding with the table on the left.

      Basically in your code I adapted the following line but I cannot make it work to filter the unmatched lines.

      var oHeaderModel = sap.ui.getCore().getModel().getProperty("/modelData/headerData/oModel/oData");

      The model data for the table on the left is stored inside /modelData/headerData/oModel/oData and it contains a collection of objects.

      Do you think there is something wrong in the code I have adapted/modified ?

    Can you share the code and JSON model ? It will be easy for me to check where it might be going wrong.

    Thank you!
