Fiori Elements - List Report floorplan - No views to edit in version 1.65

Apologies if this one is obvious - but I'm a really old ABAPer teaching myself here.

Trying to use a List Report floorplan and then make fairly standard adjustments for simple applications. For instance, adding fields to standard header without the user picking it, setting the fields in the grid, adding links to other objects in detail screens, etc.

When I generate floorplans with version 1.44 - I get what I expect, including a view folder and controller folder. When I generate with version 1.65, I don't get those folders. That's where I was expecting to tweak my code.

I'm using the same oData to generate both, so I don't think it's there, but not sure. Not sure if it's correct and I've been googling for a couple days now without luck. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Hi Tim,

    that's the beauty of Fiori Elements. The views and controllers are generic and generated on the fly based on the annotations.

    Maybe I'm not explaining myself well - I am using two different templates. 1.65 is what I want my app to look like. But I want to do changes to the code that I would expect to be in the view folder. That folder isn't there.

    Using the exact same odata I generated based on 1.44. I did get the view folder and can add the code for defaulted filters.

    What would be the proper thing to do - change the odata for additional annotations? Is there another place to put the generic filter code? The code for what is going to be on the detail screen?

    Thanks for the input,

    Tim
