Configuring Print Buttons for the Siebel Handheld Application
Users can use the application-level menu to print documents. For information about how to use the application-level menu, see the online help for the Siebel Handheld application.
You can also include a Print button on the applet to give users a visual reminder that it is possible to print from a particular view.
When you design your applets, keep the following in mind when deciding where to place the print button:
- Add the print button to the applet that is visible to the user. Do not add the print button to the print applet, which the user never sees.
- Consider what the desired behavior is when determining the placement of a print button.
For example, in a parent-child view, you might want to add the print button to the parent applet to ensure that the print button is always enabled. This is not necessarily true if the print button is placed on the child list applet. If there are no items in the list applet, the print button is disabled, and the user cannot print from that view. If you only want the user to print when there are list items, then placing the button on the child list applet is appropriate.
To configure a print button
- From Siebel Tools, add a control to the print applet and specify the following:
HTML Type: Button
Method Invoked: Print
- Set the Display Name property of the button. Generally, this is set to Print.
