Preparing Siebel Tools to Define a Custom Task UI
To define a custom task UI, you begin by preparing Siebel tools.
To prepare Siebel Tools to define a custom task UI
- Make sure the following parameter is set in the [Siebel] section of the tools.cfg file in the
EnableToolsConstrain = FALSE
If the parameter is not present, then add it. Setting EnableToolsConstrain to false allows you to assign a display name to a Task object.
- Set the following parameter in the [Workflow] section of the configuration file for the application:
VerCheckTime = -1
Setting VerCheckTime to -1 (negative one) allows you to use the Publish/Activate button. The configuration file is typically in the language directory of the client. For example:
- ENU is the language directory
- uagent.cfg is the configuration file
- Expose object types that are used to develop a task UI.
For more information, see Exposing Object Types That Are Used to Develop a Task UI.
- If necessary, expose business service object types.
A business service object can include hidden properties. For a business service, business service method, or business service method argument to be displayed on a dropdown list in Siebel Tools, the Hidden property of the object must be set to FALSE.
