UWL View Detail view missing buttons

Hi all,

When I press the View Detail button I'm missing the buttons "Display Form", "Attachments" and "Forward" in the window that pops up. Currently the buttons available looks like this:

We have just upgraded to NW 7.3 and the view used to look like this before the upgrade

I have configured the View Detail action like this inside a View:

<Action name="viewDetail" groupAction="" handler="SAPWebDynproLauncher" referenceBundle="view_detail" returnToDetailViewAllowed="yes" launchInNewWindow="SHOW_HEADERLESS_PORTAL" launchNewWindowFeatures="width=700,height=600,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,directories=no">


<Property name="WebDynproApplication" value="UWLDetail"/>

<Property name="excludeActions" value="$"/>

<Property name="isnewwindow" value="1"/>

<Property name="excludePreviewSections" value="$"/>

<Property name="image" value="icon_detail.gif"/>

<Property name="sap_uwl_selecteditem" value="${item.internalId}"/>

<Property name="displayEmptyDisplayAttributes" value="$"/>

<Property name="System" value="SAP_LocalSystem"/>

<Property name="excludeDisplayAttributes" value="$"/>

<Property name="display_order_priority" value="-2"/>



And the URL being sent to the View Detail pop-up excludes no actions:

Can someone help me?

    You should be able to still see the actions in the context menu. The context menu is the dropdown beside the task name. Select the task first, then select the dropdown. Do you see the actions there? Also to see the buttons at the bottom of the description area they must be defined in the view....see below for an example. When userdecisions are used, they are always visible on the UI when they are defined in the view. actionPosition tag decides where these should go. In this example the buttons will be displayed at the bottom of the description area.

    The xml file should look something like this for the view: (This is a sample).


    <View name="<YOURVIEW>" selectionMode="SINGLESELECT" width="98%" supportedItemTypes="uwl.task.webflow.decision.TS00008267" columnOrder="statusIcon, subject, priority, creatorId, createdDate, dueDate, processor, forwardedDate, attachmentCount, detailIcon, APPROVE, REJECT" sortby="priority:descend, dueDate:ascend, createdDate:descend" tableDesign="STANDARD" visibleRowCount="10" headerVisible="yes" queryRange="undefined" tableNavigationFooterVisible="yes" tableNavigationType="CUSTOMNAV" refresh="300" dueDateSevere="0" dueDateWarning="0" emphasizedItems="none" displayOnlyDefinedAttributes="yes" dynamicCreationAllowed="yes" actionPosition="bottom" referenceBundle="YOURBUNDLE">


    <Action reference= "display form">

    <Action reference= "attachments">

    <Action reference= "forward"/>

    • This is basically what I have as well. Still, it's behaving differently. Unfortunately SAPs documentation about the UWL XML capabilites is very limited so it's rather try and error.

      What I do not understand is why my three actions are removed when uploading the XML. They are simply gone.

      Thank you anyway.

    Can anyone suggest whether it would be relevant for me to create an OSS message with SAP regarding this issue? Or am I missing something obvious?
