Creating List Applets

You create list applets using the List Applet Wizard. The List Applet Wizard helps you identify all the correct properties and automatically creates child objects, such as Web Template Items, based on the information you enter. You can also create applets manually by defining all the necessary properties and child objects.

The List Applet Wizard does the following:

  • Creates the list applet
  • Creates the applet Web template
  • Creates the list, list columns, and controls
  • Creates applet Web template items

NOTE:  The List Applet Wizard can not be used when the ClientConfigurationMode CFG parameter is set to All.

To create a list applet using the List Applet Wizard

  1. From the application-level menu, choose File > New Object.

    The New Object Wizard dialog box appears.

  2. Click the Applets tab, and then double-click the List Applet icon.

    The General page of the List Applet Wizard appears.

  3. In the General Page, enter the following information for the applet, and then click Next.
    Example Value



    Only locked projects appear in the picklist.

    Business Component


    The business component that the applet is based on.

    Applet Name

    New Account List Applet

    A unique name for the Applet.

    Display Title


    The name to appear in the user interface.

    The wizard will use information to create an applet object and define the required applet properties.

    The Web templates initially available in the wizard are filtered based on Web Template Type. To display all templates, select the Show All Templates check box.

    A thumbnail image for most templates appears when you select the template name. For a complete description of all templates, see Siebel Developer's Reference.

  5. In the Web Layout - Fields page, select the fields that you want to appear on the applet, and then click Next.

    The fields that appear in the Available pane are those fields defined for the business component that you selected in Step 3.

  6. In the second Web Layout-Fields page, choose the controls in the Available Controls box that you want to appear on the applet, and then click Next.

    All the entries in the Selected Controls box are added by default. The available controls come from the Model HTML Controls applet. This applet specifies the available controls and to which template each control is mapped. You can modify the model applet if necessary by adding or removing controls from the applet.

  7. Review the information displayed in the Finish page, and then click Finish.

    The List Applet Wizard creates the applet and supporting object definitions based on the selections you made.

    The Applet Layout Editor opens and displays the layout of the new list applet ready for you to edit.

    See Working with the Applet Layout Editor.
