Intro

The SAP Fiori elements list report template supports the three content area layouts detailed below.

For design information, see General Layout and the links below.

Simple Content Layout

The default layout for the content area is the simple content layout and displays the data for one business object in a single table view.  It supports:

  • Display of one business object in one table, or with SAP Fiori elements for OData V2, in a list.
  • Display of data as a chart visualization
  • Automatic data loading
  • One table toolbar
  • Creation of business objects via a dialog
Warning
Although table-level variant management is supported, it is strongly not recommended.

With SAP Fiori elements for OData V2, you can enable the display of a list with:

You can assign a criticality to these items. When no criticality is defined for the items, they are treated as items with a criticality of medium.

Multiple View Layout

For more complex scenarios, you can turn on the multiple view layout which supports: 

  • Display of one business object in a table or, with SAP Fiori elements for OData V2, in a list, with multiple views, for example, in order to display different columns or different pre-filtered states
  • Display of data as a chart visualization
  • The segmented button for a maximum of three views or the select control for four or more views
  • Display of the count or number of total rows in the view (must be enabled)
  • One table toolbar
  • Automatic data loading

Note that Developers refer to this layout as ‘single table for all views’ or ‘single table mode’.

Warning
Creation of business objects via a dialog is not supported – it must be done in an object page.

Although table-level variant management is supported, it is strongly not recommended.

Multiple Content Layout

To support even more complex scenarios, you can turn on the multiple content layout which supports: 

  • Display of multiple business objects in multiple tables or, with SAP Fiori elements for OData V2, in a list. For example, you can display a customer overview with different tables for invoices, deliveries, and overdue payments. All the tables can all be filtered by a specific customer and a specific date
  • Text-only icon tab bar to switch between business objects
  • Display of data as chart visualizations
  • Automatic data loading
  • Different toolbars for each business object

Note that developers refer to this layout as one of the following:

  • One business object as a separate table for each view or multiple table mode
  • More than one business object as multiple views in a list report with different entity sets and table settings
Warning
Creation of business objects via a dialog is not supported – it must be done in an object page.

Although table-level variant management is supported, it is strongly not recommended.

Do not use a mix of responsive and non-responsive tables.
