Controlling Step Display
You can use the Display Name and Display Name Type properties of the Task View object to selectively inhibit the display of steps shown to the end user in the Current Task pane. For a description of these properties, see the Siebel Object Types Reference.
To control the display of steps by inhibiting selected steps from being shown to the end user, do one of the following:
- Enter a valid Display Name for the first step, and leave Display Name blank for subsequent steps.
By setting the Display Name property to an empty string, the step is not displayed in Current Task pane. The step shown for the first view continues to be shown as the current step for the others.
NOTE: This option is useful when there is a sequence of views performing what the end user thinks of as one logical step.
- Set the Display Name Type property to Unique.
Using this setting means that Display Name is added to the Current Task pane the first time that the step is encountered, but it is not added subsequently.
NOTE: This option is useful in loops (for example, a loop in which the end user enters line items). When the type is set to Unique, the step is shown in the Current Task pane the first time through the loop, but not in subsequent iterations.
When a loop includes only a single view, then using this option alone is sufficient. When a loop includes multiple views, the Unique flag can be combined with an empty Display Name to achieve the desired effect. The first view in the loop has Display Name filled in and is marked as Unique. The other views in the loop have an empty Display Name. The result is that the Display Name of the first view is displayed in the Current Task pane for the entire loop.
