Configuring the Rendering Keys
Siebel Open UI uses two keys for each object that the presentation model and physical renderer renders in the client. You can associate one of these keys for each view or each applet.
To configure the rendering keys
- Do one of the following:
- Configure the manifest_extensions.map file. It is recommended that you modify the manifest_extensions.map file to configure the rendering keys. It is easy to configure and does not require you to use Siebel Tools. For an example of this configuration, see Step 5. For more information, see Configuring the Manifest Extensions File.
- Configure the custom_manifest.xml file. For more information, see Configuring the Manifest File.
- Configure the SRF. You can use Siebel Tools to modify the user properties of an object to configure the rendering keys. For an example of this configuration, see Step 1 or Step 3.
If the manifest_extensions.map file includes a description for an object that you define in Siebel Tools, then Siebel Open UI uses the description in the manifest_extensions.map file and ignores the description in the SRF.
- Override the class. You can override the methods of the CSSSWEBase class.
This configuration is useful if you must apply a rendering key to a set of frame classes that you are responsible for. A description that you define in the manifest_extensions.map file or the SRF overrides any description that you override in a class. For more information, see Step 4.
- Use the default rendering key. Siebel Open UI assigns a default rendering key to each element. A description that you define in the manifest_extensions.map file or the SRF, or a class override, overrides the default rendering key.
