Using the L-Shape APILocate this document in the navigation structure


The L-Shape API (LSAPI) enables you to customize navigation in Ajax Framework Page (AFP). The LSAPI is comprised of the following client-side APIs:

You can use the LSAPI in JavaScript files, which are included in the portal applications that you develop in SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio. The workflow is the same as the one used for regular portal applications.

For more information, see Developing Portal Applications .


The LSAPI only becomes available after the AFP client-side scripts have been loaded. As of SAP NetWeaver 7.3 SP03, the client-side AFPisLoaded event is raised once the scripts are loaded. Your code should listen for this event and invoke the LSAPI functions only after it occurs.
