The flag icon is used to flag objects for later reference and follow-up. The favorite icon is used to mark frequently needed objects as favorites.

In order for a business object to be flagged and/or be marked as favorite, the properties markFlag and markFavorite should be set to true. To display both indicators, set the property ShowMarkers to true.

Usage

  • Use flag if you want to flag objects for later reference and follow-up.
  • Use favorite if you want to mark frequently used objects as favorites.

Flags and Favorites in Object List Items

Flag and favorite icons should be placed in the reserved space in the first row of the status block, on the right-hand side.

The status line should be used for visualizing the flagged and favorite objects. The first status line remains empty if neither flags nor favorites are set.

If your app does not use flags or favorites, you can use both status lines for further information about the object status.
