Imagine that you have a view where you have several form applets stacked vertically. You would like to allow users to be able to navigate from top to bottom using keyboard (Tab Key). Where you would like to skip read only fields, mvg fields and some other fields. This requirement is not possible in using normal field indexing capability provided by Siebel in Siebel Tools. I had this type of situation and I came up with a small piece of code when plugged in View PR would add Tab Index attributes to the form fields that are active and allow [more]
List Applet scroll using mouse wheel – Siebel Open UI
I was going through Open UI themes a really nice site dedicated to paid themes and plugins for Siebel Open UI. While browsing the plugin section I came across a plugin that was titled Auto-Scroller Plugin. The description said that it allows you to navigate through list applet (Next Page, Previous Page, Next Record , Previous Record) using scroll action (mouse wheel scroll) instead of clicking the icon and scrolling.

We were asked by the client to make the changes to calendar and make Monday as [more]

So, I would like to thank Jason for sharing the approach and initial code, with us to make it possible. There are two part to the solution. Tooltip Data View PR So, Lets get started. (more…) [more]
Jason posted an article explaining how to implement Mouse Over tooltips in Siebel Open UI almost an year ago. Unfortunately I was not able to get that working due to issues with qTip plugin.

The architecture is essentially same with few key differences that are: No plugins used (vanilla jquery ui tooltips functionality) No PostLoad.js hacking. (View PR) Use JSON format to store tooltip data. (more…) [more]
