I am trying to add a button to a Home page applet
Applet name : Aventis Specialty Contact List Applet (My Personal Contact)
Project : Siebel Universal Agent
BC : Contact
I Drag and drop button into empty placeholder on WebLayout (In the Blue Bar next to Cancel(Query)) and made the following changes
Caption = AVENTIS
HTML Display Mode = EncodeData
HTML Only = FALSE
HTML Type = MiniButton
MethodInvoke = OpenUrl
Runtime = TRUE
Visible Language Override = TRUE
Step - 2
function WebApplet_PreCanInvokeMethod (MethodName, &CanInvoke)
if (MethodName =="OpenUrl")
Step - 3
function Applet_PreInvokeMethod (name, inputPropSet)
if ( name == "OpenUrl" )
STEP - 4
Step - 5
When I lauch my application, I can see the Aventis Button on the applet. But when I click
this Button I got the following message
"We detected an Error which may have occurred for one or more of the following reasons:
The specialized method 'OpenUrl' is not supported on Business Component 'Contact'
used by Business Object 'Life Sciences Home'. - SBL-DAT-00222"
I did the same thing for SIS Account Entry Applet and the button is working fine in that applet
and I can launch aventis web site from that applet.
Is there any limitation that Siebel does not allow to write specialize method on Home Page.
