A lot of people have asked me this question or a variation of this question which goes like. How do I learn Open UI? How do I start with Open UI? I want to learn Siebel Open UI, should I start with bookshelf? You get the drift. I thought it might help to share the answer that I give them. My Answer: Learning Open UI is bit different from traditional Siebel. In normal circumstances one would be asked to read bookshelf or visit Siebel Essentials or Siebel Unleashed ;) to learn Siebel but not in case Open UI (although that would [more]
Luckily I got a chance to work on a Siebel Open UI project (now you know the reason for my absence). As we already know there is lot of difference in doing a POC and implementing real business requirements. When I came to know about the requirements for this project, I knew it is something that has never been done before and if successful Open UI would have crossed a major milestone at least in my eyes i.e from a Concept to a real technology that can be used for real projects.

Advantages You can group applets into section and make multiple applets expand and collapse together You can customize [more]
Expand – Collapse Siebel Applet – Siebel Open UI
You must have seen lots of web apps where you are able to collapse a section of website by clicking on a plus icon or something similar to that. So, not waiting further I dived right in and started researching how we can do that in Siebel Open UI. First I tried to find the a jQuery plugin that will help me accomplish that but that seemed too much for this type functionality. After further research the solution that I found was too simple to implement in Siebel 2013 Innovation Pack (Siebel 8.1.1.11). The Solution in 8.1.1.11 turned out to be just couple [more]
