Scripting events calling my PortalComponent?


Is it possible to have the Scripting Events call into my PortalComponent?

I want to get notified when a row in a table is clicked.

The table doesn't have a Click event or equivalent

but there is a SAPTABLECLICK scripting event which sounds promising (depending on the info it gives me)

There is also an event mentioned in the help called SAPTABLECELLCLICK which sounds perfect but I amn't even sure how to put a handler under that since it doesn't appear in the properties of the table

The examples I have seen all use the events to comunicate between iViews but nothing to talk to the component

    1. In the properties editor, when the table is selected, choose ItemTemplate > Cells > [<i>The name of the column you want to add the event to</i>] > TableCellContent.

    2. Add event handler to TEXTVIEWCLICK (e.g. <i>onCellClick</i>)

    3. Add the script to the ascx file:


    function onCellClick(id, event)





    I hope that this is what you are looking for.

      Great question! since I know a good answer.... 😉

      I recommend that you put 2 hidden controls on the page where you want to get the event: a button and a input field.

      in the EPCM event handler script function put the param in the input field and then call a the button's click. In the server code (the button action event handler) you can access the inputfield.

      Here is the script example:

      <script language="javascript">

      EPCM.subscribeEvent("urn:SAP.PDK.Samples.Search", "xSearch", searchFunction);

      function searchFunction(eventObj)


      var custName = eventObj.dataObject;

      <%= Form.ID + "." + txtCustName.ClientID %>.value =custName;

      <%= btnSubmit.ClientID %>.click();



      Good luck,
