Using the Applet Layout Editor to Add a Tree Control

You can use the Web Layout Editor to add a tree control to a tree applet.

To use the Applet Layout Editor to add a tree control

  1. In the Object Explorer, choose Applet.
  2. In the Applets list, locate the applet you must modify.
  3. In the Object Explorer, expand the Applet tree, and then choose Applet Web Template.
  4. In the Applet Web Templates list, right-click the template you must modify, and then choose Edit Web Layout.
  5. Drag a TreeControl control from the palette and drop it on the applet layout.

    Siebel Tools creates the required controls and the object definition for the tree.

  6. To modify your configuration, right-click the tree control, and then choose a menu item from the pop-up menu using values from the following table.
    Menu Item

    Select Tree

    Allows you to copy and paste the tree control to another applet.

    Create New Tree Node

    Adds a new tree node to the tree. Siebel Tools creates the tree node at the top level. You can then use the Move Selected Tree Node menu item to move the new node.

    Move Selected Tree Node

    Allows you to change the position of the tree node in the tree. Press and hold down the SHIFT key, and then use the following keys on your keyboard:

    • Use the up and down arrow keys to move the tree node up or down a level.
    • Use the left and right arrow keys to change the position of the node in the current level.

    Siebel Tools automatically updates the Position property of each node according to each operation you perform in the Web Layout Editor.

    If you press the DELETE key when Siebel Tools displays the tree in the Applet Web Template Layout window, then Siebel Tools deletes the currently chosen tree node. You can use the Undo and Redo menu items in the Edit menu of the Applet Web Editor to modify your changes.
