Can anyone provide me with examples for creating a portal desktop or links to help me in this regard.
Thanks and Regards
have you checked this document on SDN: https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/documents/a1-8-4/creating new portal display rules.pdf
If you have further question just repost.
Hope this helps,
