Annotation for Data ObjectsLocate this document in the navigation structure

The following annotations are available for data objects.





The gp (generic player) namespace represents the annotations necessary to drive the Mobile Instant Value Applications generic player.



Determines the order in which the collection displays in the icon set of a mobile application. Contains the attributes to determine the display order (for example, the icons may be nested) and whether the collection displays on the first page of the icon set.



Number specifying the position of the collection on the home screen (free text entry). The lower the number, the higher the position it will occupy, for example, 0010 is tenth position and 0999 is a very low position.

The lowest existing number occupies the highest position, then the next highest number and so on. For example, if 0010 is the lowest number, it occupies the highest position and displays first on the screen.

0 (zero)


Specifies that the collection will be on the first page of the icon set and visible on the home screen. If you do not include this annotation, the collection will not display on the first page or home screen.



Used in header rendering, this is an indication to the client to render a special header section for the detail screen. For example, if the detail screen displays a contact, it could render a header section to include a picture at the top left, with the name and title of the person on the right and possibly a divider underneath, before rendering the rest of the information. Exact interpretation depends on the client.



Not used in the current implementation.



A value other than None means that the collection is cached according to the device settings. A value of None means that the collection is not cached according to the device settings.



Not used in the current implementation.



Contains SAP annotations.



Defines the icon for the data object in OData protocol, independent of the gp namespace (one icon for each data object). Enter the URL for your icon.



Specifies whether the data object is a thing type, that is, a tangible artifact (for example, a purchase order) or a subordinate object (for example, a purchase order item). This does not affect the functionality.
