Displaying a Parent Applet Field in the Title of a Detail Applet

You can display the value of a field from the parent record as the title of a detail form applet. Siebel CRM often uses a form applet as a detail applet. Displaying the title in this way helps the user to understand the relationship between the parent and child applet.

To display a parent applet field in the title of a detail applet

  1. In Siebel Tools, click Applet in the Object Explorer.
  2. In the Applets list, locate the detail applet you must modify, right-click, and then choose Edit Web Layout.
  3. Drag and drop a text control into the placeholder for the title that is positioned on the canvas.
  4. Give the control a useful name, such as business component name Title.
  5. Change the HTML Type property of the control to PlainText.
  6. In the Field property of the control, choose the parent business component field whose value you must display, for example Name.
  7. Compile and test your changes.
