WEBCUIF EhP3 SP08 – Release Notes

These Release Notes focus on new features and enhancements delivered as part of the Web Client UI Framework EhP3 Support Package 08.

The WEBCUIF development team is doing his best to provide those new developments on older releases. So if you are interested in a specific feature, verify its availability by checking the corresponding SAP Note.

New Features and Enhancements

Timeout Warning Popup and Countdown Clock

Thanks to the Timeout Warning Popup, the user will get notified a few minutes before the back end system timeout and will have the option to keep his session alive. This can be quite useful for a user who is working on the same page for a long time (e.g. entering text). An optional count down clock can also be displayed in the Application Frame header.


SAP Note: 2119701

Multi File Upload via Drag and Drop

The thtmlb:fileUpload BSP Tag can now support the upload of multiple files and offers as well a custom drag and drop functionality based on HTML5 standards.


SAP Note: 2106969

New Rich Text Editor

The Web UI Client Framework is now offering a new frontend Rich Text Editor. The BSP Tag thtmlbx:rteMCE is using the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor to offer state of the art editing capabilities. This editor is meant to replace the older thtmlbx:btf.

  • Ctrl+Q for the CANCEL buttons
  • Ctrl+N for the NEW buttons
  • Ctrl+P for the PRINT buttons

      The new rich text editor is not working in google chrome or firefox correctly.

      We have an issue when we want to insert an image.

      Hi Suzanne,

      Very sorry to hear that. Could give us some more details on the issue you face and the scenario you are performing?

      And of course, if it looks like a bug to you, don't hesitate to open an Incident so that SAP can follow-up on that.

      Hi Jean-Yves,

      thank you for this post.

      Is it also possible to have advanced paste options such as MS-Word: paste with or without formatting?

      Many thanks in advance,

      Hello Jean,

      To enable the muti upload we have to just use "multiple" property as TRUE of thtmlb:fileupload ?
      so mutiupload means we can select multiple files using Ctrl button and clicking on files ?

      Thank you so much for your reply.

      Hello Abhishek,

      This is correct. But you will also have to adapt your backend in order to support multiple files once they are uploaded (see SAP Note 2070206 - Multi fileUpload).

      Hi Jean,

      Thank You for the reply. We have implemented the multiupload. but the problem we are facing is multiselect is not working for IE(we have IE11) and it works in Chrome, Mozilla.
      Any idea or suggestion on how to make the upload functionality works in all browser ?

      Hi Jean-Yves,

      We've recently patched our test CRM 7.0 system to EHP4 SP stack 18.
      When replying to or forwarding an email in the Web IC (Inbox), the modified email content is not being sent.
      We're investigating the issue but we're unclear whether the old BTF editor can still be used at our release level, or whether we must use the new Rich Text Editor?

      Please can you confirm.

      Dear Colleagues,

      my customer wants to use the new New Rich Text Editor in his IC Web Client. Is there still existing an end user documentation which explains the main features?

      Thanks Jochen
