The latest edition of the SAP Fiori Design Guidelines for web applications is now available, with new content based on SAPUI5 releases 1.78 to 1.80.

New with this edition

Here's a selection of the topics and features that are new with this edition:

Flexible grid

The new flexible grid article explains how the existing flexible (CSS) grid control works. You can use it as an underlying layer for arranging your content into columns and rows. The layout then adapts automatically to different screen sizes.

Tree toolbar

There’s now a dedicated tree toolbar guideline for actions that apply to a tree or tree table.

Keyboard shortcuts

On desktop devices you can now render keyboard shortcuts for a button as a tooltip.

Avatar badge

You now have the option to show a badge for clickable avatars. The badge visualizes the action triggered by clicking the avatar, like taking a photo or zooming in.

Responsive table

You can configure auto pop-in mode to hide certain columns, rather than moving all columns to the pop-in area.

Icon tab bar

For the icon tab bar you can create hierarchies with sub-tabs or nested tabs.

List report

A new Working Modes section describes how to respond when a user makes changes that are inconsistent with the filter criteria.

Visual design

You’ll also notice some small changes to the visual design:

  • The asterisk indicating a mandatory field now appears to the right of the field label (formerly on the left).

  • The style of the message icons for error, information, confirmation, and success messages has been adapted.

Updated guidance

Independently of new or changed features, we continually update our design guidance for existing floorplans and UI elements. Some of the topics we’ve addressed include:

Actions in SAP Fiori 3

We’ve enhanced several articles to give you more explicit guidance on where to place actions and how to style them. These include our guidelines for the footer toolbar and the toolbar overview.

Mass editing

The guideline for mass editing now includes explicit text recommendations for different types of input control.

Creating objects

We’ve added new guidance on creating objects in a list report using a dialog, and on creating sub-objects in an object page.

New and updated SAP Fiori design stencils

Over 20 new stencils have been added, including the basic dynamic page layout, the wizard floorplan, and AI recommendations.

You can see what’s been added and changed in the respective stencil sets below:
