Creating Preview Views

In order for a user to preview a result record, the Preview view must be defined. You define the Preview in the Search Category Object or Find Object. The view will show up in a pop-up browser when the user clicks on the Preview button. Siebel Search does not support any navigation in the pop-up Preview view. The Preview view is read-only with no navigation buttons.

To create a preview view

  1. Lock the project that will contain the Preview View object you want to add.
  2. Choose an existing applet that best fits your preview purpose.
  3. This applet should be a Form Applet and it needs to be based on the class CSSFrameBase.

  4. Create a Base type Applet Web Template and comment it as being for Search Preview.
  5. Map Data type Controls to Applet Web Template Items.
  6. Do not map any button type controls that are command controls.

  7. Configure a new view, and associate the applet in Base mode to your new view.
  8. Add responsibility and license key for this new view.
  9. Associate this view to a screen that will exist in the application where you are running Search Center.
  10. You do not need to provide Viewbar Text and Menu Text.

  11. Compile your changes to the SRF file.
