Hi All,

I didn’t notice at first, but a few weeks ago, when I opened the Outline view when editing the view and controller files (created by the SAPUI5 plugin using the MVC Pattern), I found out that it was empty.


As the code grows and get more complex it became a bit of a pain jumping around to each of the functions, so I decided to look for a solution for this problem.

I found out a reference of a very good blog in the stackoverflow forum with the solution.

To be brief, to get the outline view working it is necessary to use a JSDOC comment with the following tag:

     * @memberOf


I think it would be nice to have the SAPUI5 plugin creating the initial code with these comments. What you think?

Best regards,

    Hi Christian, a good tip! I forwarded your proposal to the UI5 tool dev colleagues. They’ll have a look at it. Regards, Bertram

      Hi Jan,

      yes, the same can be done for the controller (this will also be part of the next UI5 Eclipse Tools patch).

      Best regards
