    Hi,

    Development of addons for use with the new 9.2 Browser Access client is more-or-less the same as developing for the desktop client. You still use the same UI API and DI API to develop your addon. In a lot of cases it should be possible to develop an addon that works in the desktop client and the web client. There are some limitations for the web client which may change how you approach particular functions for your addon (eg the events triggered when a user moves between fields isn't always the same). SAP have added new features to the UI API to allow you to upload and download files in an addon running on the browser client. They also have a property that allows your addon to tell if it's being used in a browser client or a desktop client at runtime (ie so you can run different code to cater for the different client behaviours).

    When installing an addon for 9.2 there is an additional property in the ard file that controls whether the addon is available in the browser client or not.

    Some details are included in the 9.2 SDK. There was an official document from SAP on addon compatibility for use with the Browser Access module but I can't seem to find it on the SAP portal anymore. It was originally released for the cloud 1.1 version of SBO but the document also applies to SBO 9.2.

    Kind Regards,

    Owen
