Hi everyone,

 

I'm Daniele Incampo SAPUI5 and HANA’s developer.

I'm writing my first blog post so I hope you will be understanding.

Here is a simple SAPUI5 example of how to show backend errors.

I'm writing this because I found many obstacles during my app development. So I would like to be helpful  for those like me who are novice with SAPUI5.

 

BACK-END


 

Into YOURENTITY_GET_ENTITY (my use case) or any other method of ZCL_YOURPROJECT_DPC_EXT (I think it shoud works):

 

Declaration


 DATA: lo_meco TYPE REF TO /iwbep/if_message_container,
lx_busi_exc TYPE REF TO /iwbep/cx_mgw_busi_exception,
lt_log TYPE bapiret2_t.

Code:


(In my case, errors were reported with 'E' or 'A')
IF lt_log IS NOT INITIAL. "Se vengono restituiti dei messaggi
LOOP AT lt_log INTO DATA(ls_log) WHERE type EQ 'E' OR type EQ 'A'.
ENDLOOP.
IF sy-subrc EQ 0. "Se ci sono messaggi di errore
lo_meco = mo_context->get_message_container( ).
lo_meco->add_messages_from_bapi(
EXPORTING
it_bapi_messages = lt_log
).
CREATE OBJECT lx_busi_exc
EXPORTING
message_container = lo_meco.
RAISE EXCEPTION lx_busi_exc.
ENDIF.
ENDIF.

The result will be something like this :




FRONT-END


 

After creating the project, the structure is like this. We will focus on writing code into the Utilities.js (You can easily find how to create this here: https://blogs.sap.com/2019/04/08/the-utilities.js-file-a-lot-of-useful-functions-and-scripts/ )


After you create, you need to import into your controller like this :
sap.ui.define([
"sap/ui/core/mvc/Controller",
"sap/ui/model/json/JSONModel",
"sap/m/MessageBox",
"./Utilities"
], function (Controller, JSONModel, MessageBox, Utilities) {
"use strict";

So now you will be able to use Utilities.js functions into standard Main.Controller.js simply referring with Utilities.function();

After read your entity set, you have to specify success and error functions. You should write something like this:


We will focus on error function, what you will write into success function is irrelevant for this blog post. So, we will retrieve errors from backend in this way:
var a = JSON.parse(response.responseText);
var errDetails = a.error.innererror.errordetails;
Utilities.manageErrors(errDetails);

That's why you can see debugging the code:

 


 

Utilities.js


That's how it works for me.
I made something like the sample of MessageView ( https://sapui5.hana.ondemand.com/#/entity/sap.m.MessageView/sample/sap.m.sample.MessageViewInsideDia... ) with some customization like a preview message as title, signal error by severity, exc.
sap.ui.define([
"sap/ui/core/mvc/Controller",
"sap/ui/model/json/JSONModel",
'sap/m/Link',
"sap/ui/core/Icon",
"sap/m/MessageItem",
"sap/m/MessageView",
"sap/m/Button",
"sap/m/Bar",
"sap/m/Text",
"sap/m/Dialog"
], function (Controller, JSONModel, Link, Icon, MessageItem, MessageView, Button, Bar, Text, Dialog) {
"use strict";
return {
initMessage: function (errDetails) {
// var oLink = new Link({
// text: "Show more information",
// href: "http://sap.com",
// target: "_blank"
// });
var a = this.getText("year");
var oMessageTemplate = new MessageItem({
type: '{type}',
title: '{title}',
description: '{description}',
subtitle: '{subtitle}',
counter: '{counter}',
markupDescription: '{markupDescription}'
// link: oLink
});
var aMockMessages = [];
for (var i = 0; i < errDetails.length; i++) {
var name = errDetails[i].severity;
var nameCapitalized =
name.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + name.slice(1);
var semiDescription =
errDetails[i].message.slice(0, 10);
semiDescription =
semiDescription.concat('...');
var oMockMessage = {
type: nameCapitalized,
title: semiDescription,
description: errDetails[i].message
};
aMockMessages.push(oMockMessage);
}
var oModel = new JSONModel();
oModel.setData(aMockMessages);
var that = this;
var oBackButton = new Button({
icon: sap.ui.core.IconPool.getIconURI("navback"),
visible: false,
press: function () {
that.oMessageView.navigateBack();
this.setVisible(false);
}
});
this.oMessageView = new MessageView({
showDetailsPageHeader: false,
itemSelect: function () {
oBackButton.setVisible(true);
},
items: {
path: "/",
template: oMessageTemplate
}
});
this.oMessageView.setModel(oModel);
this.oDialog = new Dialog({
resizable: true,
content: this.oMessageView,
state: 'Error',
beginButton: new Button({
press: function () {
this.getParent().close();
},
text: "Close"
}),
customHeader: new Bar({
contentMiddle: [
new Text({
text: "Error"
})
],
contentLeft: [oBackButton]
}),
contentHeight: "300px",
contentWidth: "500px",
verticalScrolling: false
});
},
manageErrors: function (errDetails) {
this.initMessage(errDetails);
this.oMessageView.navigateBack();
this.oDialog.open();
}
};
});

And that's the final result:



 

We achieved the goal to show errors coming from back-end into our app using Utilities.js and bapiret2_t as type table.

Please comment if you have any queries. Also request you to let me know if any changes required.

 

Thanks,

Daniele
