How Siebel CRM Constructs a List Applet

A list applet is a type of applet that displays multiple records at one time. It includes the following qualities:

  • Uses multiple columns to present data in table format. Each row of the table represents a record from the business component that the applet references.
  • Allows the user to scroll through multiple records of data and view several fields for each record.
  • Associated with a single business component.
  • A list column establishes a relationship between the business component field and the applet web template item.

Figure 25 illustrates how Siebel CRM constructs a list applet. Siebel CRM constructs a list applet in a way that is similar to how it constructs a form applet.

Figure 25. How Siebel CRM Constructs a List Applet

Siebel CRM uses the following objects to construct a list applet:

  1. List. Includes properties that affect the list. It serves as a parent object for all the list columns in the applet. A list applet includes one list object definition, named List.
  2. List column. Identifies one column in the list. It references one field in the business component.
