To embed a video or flash object in a view – CRM WebUI.

This document explains how to embed a video / flash object in a view in SAP CRM WebUI. It is possible that similar functionality can be tried in CRM 7 EHP 1 through Web mashup , but this will help you out in embedding without mashup.


This is very easy to implement and uses normal HTML code to do so.

Steps :

1. Identify the component & view where you want to embed the object. Open the same in component workbench tcode – BSP_WD_CMPWB

2. In the view’s .HTM file just put this code.

3. Imagine a situation where we want to display a video whose link is in the field URI of the business partner.

Code should be as this in the component BP_HEAD’s view AccountDetails’ html file – AccountDetails.htm .


   DATA: lv_xml    TYPE string,

   lv_entity TYPE REF TO cl_crm_bol_entity,

   lv_url    TYPE string.

   lv_entity ?= controller->typed_context->INDEPENDANTHOMEPAGE->collection_wrapper->get_current( ).

   if lv_entity is BOUND.

   lv_url = lv_entity->get_property_as_string( iv_attr_name = ‘URI’ ).

   if lv_url is not INITIAL.

   CONCATENATE ‘”‘ lv_url ‘”‘ into lv_url.



<iframe width=“420” height=“315” src= <%= lv_url %> frameborder=“0” allowfullscreen></iframe>

</html> –%>





*** This will embed the url into an IFrame . With this we can not only embed a video but we can embed a webpage etc.
