This is a continuation of my previous blog “CRM 7.0 How to –5A Create a custom component with a simple view”.

In my previous blog I had created the component ZVKH. In this blog I will create an Overview page for the same component.

Step 1: Open your component in the BSP application workbench, go to the Component structure browser right click on view and create an Overview page.

Step 2: Go to edit mode of the Runtime Repository Editor and assign the above created Overview Page to the main window.

Step 3: Now assign the view “DetailsOV” created in my previous blog to the OverviewPage.

Now your views should appear as shown below. Make sure that you save your Runtime Repository every time you do any changes.

Step 4: Maintain the configuration of the Overview Page by double clicking on the view OverviewVS and clicking on the Configuration Tab. Hit the edit button which will enable the continue button.

Step 5: Assign the view to the Displayed assignment blocks of the Overview Page and also maintain the title and the Load option.

Once changes are done hit the save configuration.

You can test your component by clicking on Test (F8).

So far this is what we have achieved: 

  • We have created and Overview Page
  • Assigned it to the Main Window in Runtime Repository.
  • Assigned the DetailsOV page to OverviewPage.
  • Maintained the configuration of the Overview Page.

    If we are working on component BT116H_SRVO could we use this concept to create a new view area for block CatDDLB?  (reason code on the service order)  The BT116H_SRVO would have view areas
    CatDDLBVA &
    CategoryDDLBVA

      Hi Glenn,

      The concept I am talking here is the base of all the component development. So the concept remains the same irrespective of what component you are talking about.

      All you have to do is enhance your standard component and then include your custom view into the view area.

      Thanks,
      Vikash.

    Hi Vikash,
    Thanks a lot for your excellent CRM blogs. I followed all the steps mentioned by you; but when I test the application; the fields are appearing as “Transaction No.  OBJECT_IDnot bound”.

    Could you please provide me some help to get this fixed if this is a problem?

    Thanks, Kathirvel

      Hi Kathirvel,

      This is very generic type of error and its difficult to point it out the problem. You need to debug the application to get the root cause, and I am not sure how to guide you without looking into you system.

      Please double check to verify you did exactly the same and have not missed any of the steps mentioned.

      Thanks,
      Vikash.

    Hi Vikas,

    In step 5 : Assign the view to the Displayed assignment blocks of the Overview Page and also maintain the title and the Load option.

    Please could you explain in detail how do we assign it to the assigment blocks.
