Developing a new Custom IStructuredPropertyRenderer - sample code requested

10 Views

Hi all,

Looking at some of the default Propertyrenderers deliverd by SAP in km.shared.ui.util_api.jar, I've written a new custom IStructuredPropertyRenderer. This in relation to Avoid" target="_blank">https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/thread?threadID=51095☆t=15&tstart=0">Avoid version changing when creating a propierty. So I'm not using IProperty but IAppProperty in order to prevent versioning changes. This IAppProperty is updated by a custom service as in the link above. To render this property, I created a new renderer.

As there is not a lot of documentation on this (I read the

Writing" target="_blank">https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/library/kmc/Knowledge%20Management%20and%20Collaboration%20Developers%20Guide.html">Writing Custom Renderers for KM Property Groups document to get an idea.

I uploaded the renderer par file, created the new property renderer and assigned this to a dummy property 'hitscount' (type integer, in the default namespace http://sapportals.com/xmlns/cm). Unfortunately, nothing can be seen. Perhaps my coding could be wrong, but ... the question is : what should be selected in the NW Developer studio when creating a new Propertyrender to have the correct folderstructure generated? I just used File -> Portal Application -> Create a new Portal Application Project. Under src.core I just created two new folders and created a new java file. I assume File -> Portal application -> new Portal Application Object -> object -> RF Component Wizard needs to be used?

A sample par file would be welcome :o)
