Object Types Reference > Using the Object Types Reference >


The following conventions apply to object usage and the contents of this documentation:

  • You must spell object names as they are listed in the documentation.
  • A constant is case-sensitive and is usually spelled with all uppercase characters. Examples are TRUE and FALSE for Boolean fields.
  • In property description tables, the Property column contains one of the following values:
    • (R) Required. You must make an entry for this property, either to complete data entry for the record or for the object definition to work correctly.
    • (O) Optional. You are not required to enter a value.
    • (S) System. The system supplies a value, which you cannot alter.

(H) marks object types and properties that are not used by the Web Client. These are hidden from view and are not listed in the Object Explorer. If an object type is hidden its properties are also hidden. To reveal hidden object types and hidden properties, change the ClientConfigurationMode argument in the configuration file for Siebel Tools (tools.cfg).

To access hidden object properties

  1. Exit Siebel Tools.
  2. Open the tools.cfg file and change the ClientConfigurationMode argument to All.
  3. Save the file and restart Siebel Tools.

    The hidden object types and properties are now visible in Siebel Tools.

The following information details how to access object properties in Siebel Tools.

When first logging into Tools, the Object Explorer contains a listing of the most used object types for Siebel 7.x. The following instructions explain how to access more of the available object types.

To access object types

  1. Start Siebel Tools.
  2. Choose View > Options.

    The Development Tools Options dialog box opens.

  3. Click the Object Explorer tab.

    The check boxes indicate which objects are visible. A box with a gray background indicates that at least one object within the hierarchy is not checked. A box with a white background indicates that all objects within its hierarchy are checked.

  4. To make an object visible, check its box.
  5. To make your changes active, click OK.

    The Object Explorer now contains the object types you wish to use.
