About Toolbars in Siebel Handheld Applications

This topic describes how to configure the toolbar for your Siebel Handheld application.

The following lists the supported toolbar functions:

  • Back, Forward
  • New Record
  • New Query, Execute Query
  • Next Record, Previous Record, First Record, Last Record
  • Minimize or Maximize
  • Delete Record

The default toolbar can be configured in Siebel Tools by configuring the SHCE Main toolbar object. SHCE Main is the main toolbar that is downloaded to the handheld device. If a toolbar named SHCE Main does not exist in your repository, a default toolbar, Main, is downloaded instead.

The SHCE Main toolbar contains the default buttons for the device: Back, Forward, New Record, New Query, and Execute Query. Change the order of the buttons on the display by modifying the Position property of the toolbar items. Remove a toolbar button by deleting it or making it inactive.

You can add additional default buttons to the toolbar by creating toolbar items whose Command property matches the name of an active bitmap in the SHCE Command Icons bitmap category. Do not add bitmaps to the SHCE Command Icons bitmap category because only those commands, which are already provided, are supported on the device. No additional commands are supported. You can remove a bitmap or make a bitmap inactive if you do not want it to appear in the Customize Toolbar dialog box.

You can change the bitmap for a toolbar by reimporting the bitmap from the SHCE Command Icons bitmap category.

Users can customize their toolbar from the application-level menu. For information about how to use the application-level menu, see the online help for the Siebel Handheld application. For more information about toolbars, see Configuring Siebel Business Applications.
