About Predefined UI Properties

Table 21 shows the predefined UI properties that you can use. These UI properties provide commonly desired ways to modify the display of items. You do not need to insert a variable name for these properties into a customizable product Web template. You only need to assign them to the desired item in the User Interface Property Designer.

For external images, the image must be stored in the Siebel installation directory in \Public\enu\Images\<filename>, where <filename> is the name of the file.

ProductHeader Image

Displays an image of the root product on every selection page. Image displays beneath item header, to the left of item labels. The default image area is 120x120 pixels square. Can only be defined on product root.



When set to Y (Yes) and user makes an attribute selection, eConfigurator engine updates the selection state of all the attribute values so that only selectable values are displayed. For example, if one of the values is excluded, it displays uavailable. Can cause performance reduction. This is the default.

When set to N (No), the eConfigurator engine does not update the selection state of the other attribute values and displays all the values as selectable. For example, if one of the values is excluded, it does not display unavailable. If user selects an excluded value, they receive a conflict message.

Use this UI property when display of the selection state of attribute values is required.

Define on attributes with LOV domains only.
