Object Page ViewLocate this document in the navigation structure

The object page allows you to display, edit and create objects, and save drafts. It is suitable for both simple objects and more complex, multi-faceted objects. The object page view offers optimal support for multiple devices.

Example of an object page view (Display mode):

The object page is made up of the following elements:

  • Page title which is set to the object type, for example, product

  • Object header including the following:

    • Title and subtitle

    • Editing status icon
    • Header toolbar, containing generic actions (in Display mode)

    • Optional elements, which can include the following:
      • A description

      • An image of the object instance

        If the instance does not provide an image, then the default image of the object type is used.

      • Buttons in header toolbar for use case-specific actions, for example, Edit and Delete

      • Header facets to showcase important information for the object. Header facets can contain, for example:
        • Label-field pairs, to show, for example, price or availability. We recommend using a maximum of five label-field pairs.

        • Smart controls, to show, for example, a micro chart detailing sales revenue, or a rating indicator to visualize the average of all user-assigned ratings
  • Anchor navigation area, which allows users to navigate to the individual content area sections

  • Content area, in which data is organized into sections that can contain field groups or a table
  • Footer bar (not shown), in which actions and the Show Messages button are available (if applicable)
