Intro

The table personalization dialog allows you to display and modify table settings. It is a UI pattern that defines column order and visibility.

Usage

Use the table personalization dialog if:

  • You have small tables.
  • You have a manageable number of columns.

Do not use the table personalization dialog if:

  • You have large tables.
  • You have a lot of columns to manage.

For larger tables you can use the P13n dialog (sap.m.P13nDialog) instead.

Responsiveness and Adaptiveness

On a desktop and tablet, the control appears as a dialog window.

The table personalization dialog should always be displayed in full screen mode on a smartphone device.

Search Behavior

The search is a live search (also known as “search-as-you-type”), which is triggered by each character the user enters or deletes. For more information, see search.
