Top level navigation events?

Hi there!

I have a task consisting of this functionality:

1: Create an iView that listens to the top level navigational events

2: Perform actions (client- and/or server-side) based on what top level navigation entry (menu item) that has been pressed.

I know that I should probably be using EPCM/EPCF, but I can't find any examples of how to listen to events coming from the top level navigation. I can only find examples of how to create 2 iViews (ie. a Sender and a Reciever), and how to send events between these.

Any input anyone?

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Henrik,

    you could listen to the navigation event (just as the TLN does to navigate to the next page).

    Here is how it works (JS code):<pre>function myNavEventHandler(eventObj) {

    var navigationTarget="";

    if (typeof (eventObj.dataObject)=="string")

    navigationTarget = eventObj.dataObject;


    navigationTarget =;

    <i>// add code handling <b>navigationTarget</b></i>


    EPCM.subscribeEvent("urn:com.sapportals:navigation", "Navigate", myNavEventHandler);

    </pre>Put this code into an component/iView, then place it into the framework page.

    That should be it...
