Hi Philip, The1 person found this helpful
...node, included in UI HTML is only for testing purposes. During runtime (in portal) , the xml node needs to be populated by map zone configurations to see the actual result. Thanks.
Thank you for clarifying that up. Looks like they need to revise the tips then.
Looking at the source for the Person page I could see that there's a method showContext. Would you know how this was rendered and could it be replicated via UI Map? Or do we have to go with another route to meet this requirement?
The syntax is something like this:onclick="showContext('contextPerson')"
The context menu of person (any entity) is rendered using the fkRef option. The person FK Reference available in the system (PER) contains all necessary configurations for rendering context menu, navigation, info strings etc.
your schema would contain person node '<perId fkRef="PER"/>
and your HTML would contain oraField="perId".
This rendering will work in display UI maps on portals only. Not for UI maps invoked from BPA script.
Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I have seen samples of how map zone configurations enable rendering of context menus. I have not yet been able to continue working on it. But I'll post how if and when I get it working.
