Add a Control to Your ViewLocate this document in the navigation structure

In your SAPUI5 application project, the first step to build your application is to add a control to your view and implement a method to react on user interaction. In this case you create a button and implement a function to react when the user presses it.


To add a control to your view, add the following coding depending on the type of your view:
  • In a JS view add the following to the createContent function

    var aControls = [];
           var oButton = new sap.ui.commons.Button({
             id : this.createId("MyButton"),
             text : "Hello JS View"
           return aControls;
  • In an HTML view add the following to the template tag:

    <div data-sap-ui-type="sap.ui.commons.Button" id="MyButton"
      data-text="Hello HTML View" data-press="doIt">
  • In an XML view add the following coding to the core tag

    <Button id="MyButton" text="Hello XML View" press="doIt"/>
  • In a JSON view add the following to the content function

          "text":"Hello JSON View",
A button is added to your view with an event that is triggered when the user presses it.
