UI Problem. How to use folders.

Hi there,

I´ve got some trouble with using folders from the Screen Painter. How can I create a form with 3 folders? I think this should be trivial... but i can´t get it.

And then, the only way to work with folders, add controls to them, etc. is using code?

By the way, which is the best way to develop UI applications?

Thanks in advance,

Ibai Peña

    Hi Ibai,

    you can add controls by code or by batch loading an xml file.

    Out of the two I prefer batch loading since it is faster (and easier to alter).

    If you use a folder object, it needs to be bound to a user datasource. Every control has a from_pane and a to_pane property specifiying when it is visible.

    It works more or less like a vb6 tabstrip control. On activation of a tab just switch the pane.

    There are good SAP samples available. You should take a look at them.

    There is a bug using the folders from the Screen Painter. The solution for this is posted in an earlier forum discussion: "UI: folders, xml and databinding", dated Feb 10 2004.
