I have the following javascript code: see

I have to 2 targets ;

- NotFound, That's the target i want to go

- home, That's the target i use if the user wants to go back from 'notfound' to the screen which he cames from.

I am curious, i would like to find out via the SDK of UI5 where this variable 'fromTarget' is described. Hereby, if i write my own code, and i want to see whats all possible, i can also find variables like this 'fromTarget' and so i can use everything UI5 has to offer.

So i go for a search:

And finaly i found the display method of object; sap.ui.core.Routing.Targets.

This method was the one which i gave the variable 'fromTarget'

But within this method, i could not find that variable. How and where can i find it?

Hi Arjun

Thanks, but that was not my requirment. I had used the Router and Targets as an example.

I kindly would like to know how to find the variable 'fromTarget' in the SDK of UI5.

At the moment i cannot find it back there. And the reason i would like to that. Is that i can also find other

variables which i can give to the method or object which is described in the SDK.

At the moment i can't find everything in the SDK, for example the 'fromTarget'

Hi Anton Pierhagen,

What exactly is your requirement, do you want to implement fall back or by passed routes. In such case, implement the foll code :

Use the foll. code in your manifest file or your component file wherever you are defining your routes :

"routing": {
			"config": {
				"routerClass": "sap.m.routing.Router",
				"viewType": "XML",
				"viewPath": "sap.ui.myApp.view",
				"controlId": "rootControl",
				"targetAggregation": "pages",
				"clearTarget": "true",
				"bypassed": {
					"target": "notFound"
			"routes": [{
					"pattern": "",
					"name": "main",
					"target": "main"
			"targets": {

				"main": {
					"viewName": "Home",
					"controlAggregation": "pages",
					"viewLevel": 1

				"notFound": {
					"viewName": "NotFound",
					"controlAggregation": "pages",
					"viewLevel": 2


Use the foll. code in your not found view :

<core:View xmlns:core="sap.ui.core" xmlns:mvc="sap.ui.core.mvc" xmlns="sap.m"
		controllerName="sap.ui.myApp.controller.NotFound" xmlns:html="">
		title="404 Error"
		text="Sorry! This page is not Available right now."
		description="May be you encountered 404 error, That means you are 
					trying to access the page which is not available right now."

Write the foll. code in your not found controller :


Hope this helps,
