New HTMLB controls in EP 6.0

Hello people,

I try to find the info in regards to the HTMLB in the EP 6.0. In particularly my client is interested in the new controls, features, and APIs that SAP is planning to have. They are very concern about performance and memory usage issues related to the HTMLB as well as about the SAP plans in regards to HTMLB. Unfortunately the research I made on various SAP sites including sdn.sap.com, etc. did not give any results.  In general it looks like there is no additional information about HTMLB except the info in PDK. Please let me know if you have releavant links. Thank you.

    Hello Boris,

    Yes, HTMLB documentation is provided only with the PDK.

    A basic change in EP6 for HTMLB is, that you can access HTMLB controls like inputField, checkBox etc. via Javascript and that you can define user specific renderers for all parts of the tableView control (Cell, Header, Footer). Some additional conrols are:

    menuBar, toolBar, progressBar, mesageBar.

    Performance and memory usage figures are hard to tell, since it depends on the controls you are using. You have to keep in mind, that in EP6 unified rendering and EPCF service (therefor access of the the HTMLB controls via Javascript) has been implemented. The result is, that more HTML code is generated in EP6 than in EP5

    Bye - Sigi
