WDA - Exit to parent iview

Hi all,

I have created the following

1) created a WDA application in the ECC system

2) created a iView in the portal to include this WDA application

3) I have given the link of the iview created in step 2 in another iview.

when the user clicks the link in the parent iview, the WDA application opens up in the same window. now, i need to have an exit button in my WDA application and when the user clicks EXIT button the parent iview needs to be displayed.

Note: I created a EXIT outbound plug in the window and linked it to the button in the view, this is just closing the WDA application and displays a blank iview. this doesn't take me to the parent iView.

    If your navigation is from one window to other , use this approach :

    Do the following steps :

    -> Make an Outbound Plug to the Window.

    ->Make the type of Outbound plug to Exit Type.

    ->Add URL of type String as a parameter to the outbound plug of Window.

    ->Do remember to add Component Name in the Properties Tab of View ( othervs Calling Outbound plug of window from view wont b possible ).

    To open a new URL with closing the previous one write this Code in OnAction of Button : ( this Code can be get from Code Wizard too ).

    DATA lo_zexit TYPE REF TO ig_zexit . <zexit is name of my Component>

    lo_zexit = wd_this->get_zexit_ctr( ).


    url = '' " string < Here give url of ur appliction>

    If your navigation between two Views of Wd Component , then just create outbound in second view and in bound plug in first view.

    Fire the Outbound plug in second view on the click of button :

    wd_this->fire_outtoparent_plg( ). <here outtoparent is outbound plug of second view>

    Make the navigation from outtoparent to inbound in parent view.

    I hope this would do.

      In case you have to close your application, then define a Parameter Close_Window of type String in the Exit Plug and use that instead of URL parameter.
