Quicks tips on FPM Headers

Quick Tips on FPM Headers


Sometimes we think that its quiet easy to do few things like hiding Help button in FPM based applications but when it comes to reality, it’s not that easy(I couldn’t say that it’s difficult too if I don’t know these steps). To make other’s life easy, I decided to write this blog with the steps (with which I have achieved the required functionality).

1.       Hiding “Help” functionality in OVP based applications – Though this is good to have functionality, but to my surprise, I got a requirement to hide this functionality in my last few clients – In order to achieve this functionality, open the OVP component configuration and click on OVP Application attributes –


Unselect the attribute – “Help is Enabled” to hide the Help button, also you can unselect the attribute “Personalization Enabled” to turn off the Personalization option to the end user.


2.       Hiding “Help” Functionality in OIF based applications – Achieving this in OIF based applications is not that straightforward as it’s in OVP, but little tricky J. To achieve this functionality, open the IDR Component configuration of your component from your application configuration. Change the view from “Component-Defined” to “Web Dynpro Built-In”, Open the Element –


Set the Visibility property to “Invisible” to hide the “Help” link.

3.       If you need to hide the default “Close” button on the toolbar, you may achieve it by adding an additional parameter to your FPM based application – FPM_HIDE_CLOSE.

  • Hi Raja, thanks for this blog, really useful. By the way, instead of removing it, is there a way you can actually add your own hyperlink next to the Help that can open an external page?

    Thanks again,
