    I must admit that I have downloaded all version of the SAP Widgets Tool…But never actually try them -:( Maybe it’s the lack of time…Or maybe it’s because I got to many side projects…Still…It’s nice to see that the Widgets Team keeps working and updating this great tool.

    I saw your presentation on DemoJam – TechEd Vegas 2007 and I got really impressed with the ease of developement of the tool. Hope to be able to test it soon.



  • Hi,
    Its really good to see new features , but if you include ” Creating Pop ups for example when i click a button  it should open a pop up where i can place  buttons , texts & input ” it would be good.


  • Good day,

    I am using Eclipse and the SAP Widget Development to create widgets. I would like to know if it is possible to add columns and change column headings at runtime. Something similar to the addRow method.


    • Good day,

      Found a solution to my problem(copied the code from Table.js. I still want to create a function but I’m still learning Java/Javascript.

      // header string
          var headerLabelString = “xyz\nabc B\nefg \nhij”;
          var headerLabels = headerLabelString.split(“\n”);
          for(var i = 0; i<headerLabels.length; i++){
           table._setColumnProperty(i, “label”, headerLabels[i]);
