How to add an icon in Fiori Elements List Report?

Dear SAP community,

I want to display an icon in a Fiori Elements List Report. The icon should be dynamically selected by the value of a field.

What I tried to achieve this:

  1. I added an additional string field to my odata-entity where I put the icon-uri (e.g. "sap-icon://error"). In the annotation modeler in Web IDE I referenced the new field in the propery IconUrl. Nothing happened.

  2. Writing a fixed icon uri into the IconUrl has also no effect.

  3. I tried to use the UI annotation "IsImageURL". This works with an url to an image, but not with an icon uri (e.g. "sap-icon://error").

It could be possible to inject a new column into the sap.m.table through an extension controller, but I guess this not the aim of a list report.

Any idea how to display an icon into the list report?

Best regards

Christian Wolter

    Hello Christian,

    In order to get a picture rendered you need two things:

    First, a property annotation UI.IsImageUrl for the property that comprises the URL, e.g.

    <Annotations Target="STTA_PROD_MAN.STTA_C_MP_ProductType/ProductPictureURL">
    <Annotation Term="UI.IsImageUrl" />

    Second, a UI.DataField (as a record of your LineItems) with a path pointing to the variable described before:

    <Annotation Term="UI.LineItem">
    ... <Record Type="UI.DataField"> <PropertyValue Property="Value" Path="ProductPictureURL"/> <Annotation Term="UI.Importance" EnumMember="UI.ImportanceType/High"/> </Record> ... <Annotation>
    Have fun,

    • Hi Stefan,

      Thanks for the answer.

      How can we dynamically display image for each line item on a list report. I understand the annotation part of list report but, where to store image ? any hint on how to get unique url for each image ?

      I have list report using Hana xsodata. In this case, how to store image on Hana DB? how to get url for each image from Hana DB?

    i've the same problem with object pages.

    I try to use the iconurl property for custom sap icons and other url icons, but it doesn't work.

    It seems that the property "IconURL" has no effect.

    Best Regards
