Creating a Pop-Up View That Siebel CRM Opens from an Applet

Although you can define a view rather than a single applet to load into a pop-up window, it is recommended that you do not use this technique, especially in an employee application. Instead, it is recommended that you call the GotoView method to navigate to a new view in the same window.

If you define a view to load into a pop-up window, then the user must use the Close (X) button in the browser to close the pop-up view. There is no way to close the window programmatically.

To create a pop-up view that Siebel CRM opens from an applet

  1. In Siebel Tools, display the control user prop object type, which is a grandchild of the applet object type.

  2. In the Object Explorer, click Applet.
  3. In the Applets list, locate the applet from which to open the pop-up view.
  4. In the Object Explorer, expand the Applet tree, and then click Control.
  5. In the Controls list, create a new control, and set the Method Invoked property of the control to ShowPopup.
  6. In the Object Explorer, expand the Control tree, and then click Control User Prop.
  7. In the Control User Props list, create two new records using values from the following table.
