The differences between configuring user interface elements for the Siebel Web Client and the Siebel Handheld Client are shown in Table 2.
The Multi-Value Group applet is not supported on the Siebel Handheld Client; however, the Multi-Value Group relationship is supported. The Multi-Value Group (MVG) control button does not appear on fields in Siebel Handheld Client applications. Instead, MVGs can be implemented as parent-child views. As a result, MVG fields are not editable within the parent record. In the Siebel Web Client, addresses of accounts are added, deleted, or edited through the Business Address MVG applet. However, in the Siebel Sales Handheld Client, these functions must be done through a Business Address child applet with an Account applet as its parent.
On the handheld device, all MVG fields are displayed as read-only, with the primary record visible. The first record will be displayed if the primary record is not specified. If you have an application or business requirement that requires the user to view or update all the records in the MVG, you must configure a separate view for that MVG. For example, the Address field in the Accounts or My Accounts view is an MVG. In the Siebel Handheld Client that field is read-only and displays the primary record. In order for the handheld user to see and update the addresses, the new Address view is configured in Siebel Tools. This new Address view is visible in the Show drop-down list.
Siebel Handheld applications support most of the calculated fields and operations used in the Siebel Web applications with a few exceptions. See Table 3 for a list of the unsupported functions.
The RowIdToRowNum function is supported differently in the handheld applications than in the Web applications. In Web applications, RowIdToRowNum converts a row Id to a numeric value. In the handheld applications, the row ID itself is returned.
