SAPUI5 Developer Studio .

Overview
SAPUI5 Developer Studio is a set of tools for Eclipse that greatly simplify the
development process for UI5 applications and controls, including:

Wizards for project and view/controller creation

Wizards for control development

Code Completion for UI5 controls

TeamProvider for NGAP and BSP repositories

Application preview with an embedded Jetty server

Proxy-servlet to prevent cross-site-scripting errors

More detailed information about the SAPUI5 Developer Studio is available in the
SAPUI5 Tools Wiki at http://vesapui5.dhcp.wdf.sap.corp:1080/trac/sapui5.tools/.

Installation
Prerequisite: Install the latest Java Development Kit (currently Version 7), if it is not
installed already.
Download and install one of the preconfigured IDEs. If you want to use the SAPUI5
Repository Team Provider you should choose the 32bit version.

It is also possible to setup Eclipse on your own by using one of the available
update sites for Eclipse.
Once Eclipse has been (re)started, the SAPUI5 Eclipse tools should be available.
One way to confirm a successful installation is to check whether you can create a UI
Library Project / SAPUI5 Application Project.
The full installation information is available in the Tools Wiki at:
http://vesapui5.dhcp.wdf.sap.corp:1080/trac/sapui5/wiki/Documentation/Tools/download

All rights reserved. © 2013 SAP AG.Formatters Exercise 10 For properties you can supply a formatter function which will be called with the value of the model property. 81 . The return value of the formatter function is used as the value of the bound control.

For each Type you can define the following parameters in the constructor: format options: Format options define how a value is formatted and displayed in the UI. input values in UI controls are parsed and converted back to the defined type in the model. constraints (optional): Constraints define how an input value entered in the UI should look like. Bound properties with a defined type will automatically be formatted when displayed in the UI. 84 . © 2013 SAP AG.

Control Methods
After the metadata is defined, you can add any method implementations to your
new Control. The method names can be chosen freely, some method names must
be avoided though:

Names of methods that are provided by a super class.

Methods starting with set, get, insert, add, remove or indexOf may collide with
setters/getters for properties or aggregations you defined.

Methods starting with attach, detach or fire may collide with methods created for
events.

There are some method names you may use but which have a special meaning:

on...: Methods starting with "on" are event handlers that are automatically bound to
browser events.

init: Is the name of the initialization function called right after Control instantiation.

renderer: The name of the function that creates the HTML for the control.

© 2013 SAP AG. All rights reserved.

123

Control Methods
Public / private methods
The convention is that private methods start with an underscore. All other methods
are considered public.
init Method
The init() method is invoked by the UI5 core for each control instance right after
the constructor. Use this to set up things like internal variables or sub-controls of a
composite. This method is considered private and only to be called by the UI5 core.
onAfterRendering Method
The onAfterRendering() method is invoked after the controller's View is
re-rendered.
Event handler methods
Methods that have a name starting with on are reserved for event handlers. For
common events such as click or keydown, browser event handlers for these
methods are registered automatically by the UI5 core.

Control Methods - Examples
// public method
divide: function(x, y) {
if (this._checkForZero(y)) {
throw new Error("Second
parameter may not be zero");
}
return x / y;
},
// private method
_checkForZero: function(y) {
if (y === 0) {
return true;
}
return false;
},

// init method, invoked when
control
// is instantiated
init: function() {
this._bSearchTriggered = false;
this._oSearchBtn =
new sap.ui.commons.Button(
this.getId() + "searchBtn",
{ text: "Search" }
);
},
// event handler
onclick: function(e) {
alert("Control " + this.getId()

SAPUI5 Mobile
The “sap.m” library, available since SAPUI5 version 1.8

SAPUI5 Mobile
UI5 is intended to also run on tablets like iPad, but for a perfect user experience on
mobile, controls must be tailored to screen size, touch interaction and UI paradigms
A dedicated UI5 control library called “sap.m” has been created
 Contains 40 controls – number is growing
 Entirely optimized for smartphones and tablets
 Native-like visuals and interaction on Apple iOS and Android with the MVI Theme
(but using the black-and-golden SAP color scheme)
 Platform support:
iOS from build 5, Android from build 2.3, BlackBerry from build 10 (to be extended)
 MVI Theme only runs in webkit browsers like Google Chrome
 NEW: now also available for a unified design on desktops with touch screen
(Theme: Blue Crystal)

All core concepts of UI5 remain the same
 Data Binding, MVC, Theming, localization, control development model, …

Extending SAPUI5 .

Inclusion of external JS libraries If UI5 doesn’t provide controls or behaviours that other JavaScript libraries offer.: • jQuery. an SVG-based graphical library to visualize data sets Other libraries need to be loaded separately. another library of interest is • Flot. a <canvas>-based jQuery plug-in for displaying data sets © 2013 SAP AG. these libraries can be included into the UI5 based pages Some JS libraries are already included in UI5 and used by UI5 runtime and can be used without additional loading. 178 .g. e. a Microsoft driven OData library which handles requests and takes care of creating and handling requests in JSON and XML format • D3.
