For normal controls, view cloning bases on control settings that are described by SAPUI5 metadata, such as
properties, aggregations, associations, and event handlers. The clone operation collects
these settings and creates a new instance.
Static IDs are used to identify and modify the controls within the controller during
runtime. However, if you reuse or nest these views, these static IDs are no longer unique.
To avoid ambiguity, each view adds its own ID as prefix to all its child
To build semantic HTML templates, SAPUI5 uses handlebars. You can either use standard
expressions and helpers together for the context of a template instance, or you can use the
custom helpers for handlebars provided by SAPUI5, which you can use together with the SAPUI5
SAPUI5 offers a hash-based navigation, which allows you to build one-page apps where the
navigation is done by changing the hash, so the browser does not have to reload the page.
Instead there is a callback to which the app and especially the affected view can react. A
string, that is, the hash is used, parsed and matched against patterns which will then
inform the handlers.
SAPUI5 is an HTML UI library, therefore styling is done using Cascading StyleSheets
(CSS). This allows creating an impressive visual experience using a widely known standard
technology which is well-accepted on the market.
