Embedding a custom window/view into an existing (enhanced) Window/ViewSet

Have a question regarding a new development in UI 2007 / ICWC.

How to incorporate a new window/view that I have created to be displayed on an existing (of course, enhanced) window? I Completed the following steps:

1. Created a new BOL structure and a retrieval class for the new BOL object

2, Created a new GenIL component

3. Checked the retrieval process in the GENIL_BOL_BROWSER: it's working just fine

4. Created a new component, and inserted a new view based on my new GenIL component, Adjusted .htm for correct rendering. The context node I selected as TABLE type

5. Created a default and a role-based UI configurations

6. Tested a new component: it displayed the table correctly

Now, I need to incorporate the main window of my new component into an existing overview page that already contains several windows. No matter what I'm doing, when I'm trying to add a view in the Runtime Environment, the wizard picks a view instead of a window.

As you remember, a view has an .htm unlike a window, and it looks like suppressing any attempt to render the newly added view on the screen.

Can anyone tell me what is missing, what I do wrong, and whether a config step should be involved.

I know, there's an exercise 8 (Part 2) for the new CRM UI 2007 Deep-dive that includes a view info a component view set but they're dealing with an overview page while I'm doing it for a result page. That's why it's not much help 'cause the steps look totally different from an OV view.

FYI, I have not yet created OP and IP as well as NavLinks for the new view, nor I adjusted .htm for the existing page.

I would appreciate any tip and any small bit of information you guys can share

    Hi Eugene,

    I am not sure how you are trying to embed it, but usually what we do is:-

    a) Create a component usage of custom view/window in our existing window/viewset component

    b) This exisiting window/viewset component may have n number of windows,but only one will be a default window.

    c) Try to make your custom view part of this default window by directly adding it to the window or adding it to a viewset which is attached to that window.

    For reference, I would suggest have a look at SAP Note-1139562.This note has three presentations attached for step by step UI development. In the third presentation, they have mentioned how to attach the new custom window to an existing window.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks and Regards,
