Overview Page – Table Card


Table cards are a type of object group card, and display a set of items in a table format. Table cards use the responsive SAPUI5 control sap.m.Table. For general information on cards, see Cards.


Clicking the header area of a table card opens the parent application, which uses the same filter as the annotated card, and shows a list of all the objects returned for the result set. The counter indicates how many items are showing on the card in relation to the total number of relevant items: [Items on Card] of [Total Items], as in 3 of 10.

Clicking a list item (row) on the card opens the detail view for that specific object in the same parent application. You can also use the smart link control in table cards. However, only use smart links if they add genuine value in your use case. Otherwise, you risk confusing users by offering too many navigation targets.

All three columns can show either a data field or a data point. Data points can use semantic colors.

Because the header area and line items are based on the same result set, they must always link to the same target application. You can also integrate a view switch inside the content area of a card.

Size of a Table Card

The fixed card layout defines a specific size. The height can vary depending on the number of table cells. Tables are limited to a maximum of 3 columns and 3 rows, with a maximum of 3 lines of text per row. To see the full result set, the user needs to navigate to the parent app.

In the resizable card layout, users can see more content/insights by resizing the cards.
