Intro

The standard list item is a type of list item used in simple lists. You can use it to display a simple data point (title) or a set of data, such as a product title and a few product attributes.

Usage

Use the standard list item if:

  • You want to display a simple set of data in a list.
  • You want to display a simple set of data as part of a list within the select dialog.

Do not use the standard list item if:

Components

The standard list item can consist of the following parts:

  • Title (mandatory). By default, the title font is larger if there’s no description. If you have list items with and without a description, this results in differently sized titles that are harder to read. In this case, switch off the title size adaptation (property: AdaptTitleSize).
  • Visual: icon or image (optional): Either displayed in the form of an icon from the SAP icon font or as an image.
  • Short description (optional).
  • Status (optional): This semantic information is equivalent to the object status. It’s usually displayed as colored text and displays the status. As an alternative, you can invert the display to place a stronger focus on the status (property: infoState). Use the inverted display only if the status is critical for your use case and requires immediate action.

Responsiveness

The title and short description can wrap and truncate. However, we recommend keeping the text as short as possible. The semantic information text is always displayed in full.
