Creating a Pop-Up Control in an Applet

For a control or list column that includes an HTML Type property set to Text or Field, Siebel CRM allows certain controls to pop-up in the Siebel client, depending on the data type of the field. Example controls include a calendar or a calculator.

Table 39 summarizes how the data type of the field affects which pop-up control Siebel CRM displays. If you define a list for a field that is described in Table 39, then Siebel CRM pops up a list in the Siebel client instead of a calculator or calendar.
