Siebel Object Interface Methods
Several groups of methods are available to Siebel object interface programmers. They are organized according to functional capabilities:
- Locating objects. These methods allow the user to locate instances of objects so that they can be manipulated by other methods.
- Accessing business components. These methods provide the ability to access and modify data within Siebel applications.
- Navigation. These methods provide a way to control the flow of the application as it is presented to the user by explicitly setting the focus of the application to the desired view, applet, or control. These methods are useful only when accessing the Siebel object interfaces from Siebel VB and when accessing Siebel as a Mobile Web Client Automation Server. When Siebel is accessed through the COM Data Control, COM Data Server, or Java Data Bean, no Siebel user interface is present.
- Manipulating controls. These methods get or set the value of a control. These methods are useful only when accessing controls from Browser Script.
- Global state properties and functions. These methods get information on the current state.
- User interaction. These methods provide user interface elements similar to those in standard Windows programs.
- Tracing. These methods control debug tracing.
