Step by step to enable Text Collection for your custom BO

My series of Cloud Application Studio Blogs

1. Declare TextCollection as a dependent object of your custom BO:
2. Add the following UI component to TI view:
And Choose 10006 as text type:
Click Bind button and maintain the following binding:
In the runtime now, you could maintain the text for custom BO:
Create a web service and select TextCollection as enabled for Read Operation:
In the generated WSDL file, check the response structure to ensure that the corresponding element for TextCollection also exists there.
Now consume the read operation of created web service via SoapUI, and the text content maintained in BO header level could also be returned:

      Hi Jerry,


      Thanks for sharing information in this wonderful blog! I tried to expose the TextCollection field in custom BO's Webservice - but it is neither appearing QueryByElements or Read Operations and could not find the same in WSDL.


      I have posted my query here -

      Would be of help if you can point in the right direction or answer this query please.

      Appreciate your help and early response.

      Thanks and Kind Regards

      Hi Sampath,

      I have replied to your question. As far as I know it is not possible to include TextCollection into web service response structure, but it is feasible to use OData service instead.

      Please check my another blog: Expose TextCollection data belonging to a Custom BO via OData service

      Best regards,

      Great, what is the solution? 🙂 I have the same situation and the typecode value is rejected.

      Ok, now I found it as well. I will share how it works in that case.

      You will need an event handler that is fired when the Inport of the screen is activated. In that handler first make sure that a BOOperation of type Create is triggered and afterwards a DataOperation that assigns 10001 or 10002 to the TypeCode of the text. I think setting the Initial Value just does not work because the BO has not been initiated when the initial value is set.

      Hope this will help someone else if you come along with this issue.

      Hi Jerry, is there anyway to detect changes like an after modify or before save script on the text collection node?
