I am experimenting with formatter function.



How can I write the formatter function to show the status based upon experience. For example, experience=2 then Error, experience =4 then success like that.

What is the syntax I have to include in view.xml to call formatter function and where should I place formatter.js in the below project structure:

Thanks and Regards,

    • Hi,

      1. Create the formatter.js file in objectnumber folder.

      2. Reference the same in MyObjectNumber.controller.js specifying the full path. ( "<path>/objectnumber/formatter")

      3. use in view as -

      enabled="{parts: [{path:'processObjectModel>IsReadOnly'}, {path:'processObjectModel>SizeRelevant'}] , formatter : '.formatter.<name_of_formatter_function>'}"

      If its still not clear, please paste view and controller code.
