About UI Properties in Web Templates

The Properties view lets you customize the way items display in a configuration session. You do this by defining a UI property for the desired items. The UI property definition is a name-value pair where the variable name is one you have entered in the Web template that controls the display of the item. The value can be a string, HTML commands, XML commands, or JavaScript that defines what you want to display instead of the default item name.

The Properties view displays all the items in the customizable product. To change how Web templates display, you can define UI properties of the following items:

  • Customizable Product Name (root product)
  • Attribute
  • Relationship
  • Group
  • Linked Item
  • Resource.

For more information about using the Properties view, see Siebel Configurator UI Properties.

The Web Engine uses for-each loops to iterate through each level of a customizable product. At each level, it determines what items occupy that level and what Web template to use for displaying the items. When you modify a Web template and assign it to group member, the template is used to control the display of all the group member's items. For example, if you assign a radio button control template to a relationship containing five items. The control template is used to define how each of the five items displays. Thus, if you have inserted a UI property variable in the radio button control template, then you must define a UI property for all five items.
