Column Width

The default column width varies according to the column contents:

  • Text: can range from 3 to 20 rem
  • Image: 5 rem
  • Rating or progress indicator: 6.875 rem
  • Chart: 20 rem

You can can change the width.

Developer Hint
For more information, refer the development team to Setting the Default Column Width.

Column Importance in Responsive Tables

By default:

  • Key fields have high importance in list reports.
  • Other columns have the importance of none and are handled like columns assigned medium importance.

You can change the level of importance.

The importance assigned to a column determines whether or not the table displays its values onscreen when screen space is limited:

  • The values from high importance colums are always displayed onscreen — as columns or in the pop-in area, depending on the screen size.
  • The values in columns with low importance are first to be hidden.

When at least one column is hidden, the table toolbar displays the Show Details button so usesrs can view the previously hidden columns in the table pop-in area. After the user clicks Show Details to display the column, the action changes to Hide Details.

Number of Table Rows Displayed at Once

By default, a responsive table loads the following number of rows at once:

  • 20 rows in a list report.
  • 10 rows in an object page with multiple sections.

When more rows exist, the users can click the More button at the end of the table to view additional rows.

With SAP Fiori elements for OData V2, you can change the default number.

For an object page that includes one section and one subsection, the responsive table loads 20 rows and the user can scroll to view additional ones.

Guidelines
Work with the development team to find the best compromise between optimal user experience and optimal technical performance.

Sort Order

By default, the sort order for a column is ascending.

You can:

  • Set the default sort order to descending.
  • Define other, customized sort orders.

For more information, see the sort guidelines according to table type:


Grouping

Grouping is available in responsive and analytical tables.

You can define the format of the grouping headers.

For more information, see:


No Data Found Text

By default, the following text is displayed when no data is found.

  • When the user has not applied filters, the text is “No data found.”
  • When the user has applied filters from the personalization dialog, the text is: “No data found. Try adjusting the search or filter parameters.”
Guidelines
Replace the generic text with text that’s meaningful to the user.

List Report and Analytical Page Only


Initial Expansion of Table Levels

By default, on initial load, the following expandable tables are expanded to this number of levels:

  • Responsive table: 1 level
  • Tree table: 1 level
  • Analytical table: 0 levels

You can change the default value for the tree table and analytical tables.
