howto configure a listshow iview in EP6


I am trying to configure a NewsListShow iview in EP6, based on the default News forms function in the CM. I have done the following configuration in the iviewproperties


Path to Content Folder:



XML Form ID:


XSL Style Sheet for List:


I have created two news in the News repository, but no news are shown when I choose preview. Have I added the wrong path to then content folder?

Any ideas?

    Hi Fredrik,

    in the Path to Root Folder for Navigation and Path to Initially Displayed Folder in the iView properties, you should enter the folder where the xml files you create with yourNews Form are stored. This should not be a subfolder of /etc/xmlforms, but rather a subfolder of documents.

    By the way, it is not recommended to work with the ListShow-form in EP 6.0 any more. We recommend that you rather use the Flex UI for News display as the performance is much better, especially if you have larger numbers of news in one folder. To do this, you define the layout of one list element on the RenderListItem tab in the XML Forms Builder and then use a normal KM Navigation iView for displaying the news list. You only have to change the layout set in the iView properties (use NewsBrowser).

      Hi Sibylle and thanks

      I tried your advice. Created a new folder in the documents repository with subfolders. The repository is empty. Unfortunately I still get the same error when I link from the News iview from SAP to this repository!
