Displaying External Content Outside of an Applet

After you have created the calculated field on the business component, you need to expose it in the user interface. You can display the external content outside of an applet using Web Page Items.

NOTE:  You can also expose external inside an applet using an Applet Control or List Column. See Displaying External Content Within an Applet.

To display content outside of an applet

  1. Go to the Web Page object type and select the Web page on which you want to display external data.
  2. Create a new Web Page Item or use an existing one.
  3. Set the Type property of the Web Page Item to Field.
  4. Create the following two Web Page Item Parameters:


    Symbolic URL


    [name of symbolic URL]

    NOTE:  The Symbolic URL is mapped to the calculated field defined for the business component.
