Need clarification on Item Binding Please

Hello Friends,

I tried to understand about binding subject in UI5 but didn't didn't grab much knowledge as of now.

In the below code for Item binding,

What does "/results" mean in the statement?

My side i have checked, results is no where is used or declared, But i could see output only when i use "/results" during binding.

Kindly explain its characteristics.

oTable.bindItems("/results", template, null, oFilters);


var template = new sap.m.ColumnListItem({ id : "first_template", type : "Navigation", visible : true, cells : [ new sap.m.Label("ID", {

text : "{Empid}" }),

new sap.m.Label({ text : "{Empname}" }),

new sap.m.Label({ text : "{Empadd}" }),

new sap.m.Label({ text : "{Empdes}" })



var oFilters = null; oTable.bindItems("/results", template, null, oFilters);

    Hi Prakash,

    In this example "/results" is nothing but the Entity-Set name which is available in your service/Mock data. Here they are using aggregation binding to bind the all the data inside the Entity-Set.

    to get better understanding Go Through the SAPUI5 SDK Documentation Data Binding Tutorials

    SAPUI5 SDK - Demo Kit

    Thank you,

      Hi Jaya,

      We are using back end server to fetch data.

      Dev tool (Eclipse) -> Gateway server (Hosts APP) -> SAP ECC system ( holds Transaction data)

      Thanks for your efforts for making to understand

    results is just the path. it is only for the following case.

    when you put the odata to jsonmodel, it will have that.
