Web Dynpro for Java iView No Longer Using Portal Theme

Good Morning Forum Members,

We have run across a problem and hope that someone may be able to provide help in resolving it.

Description of the Problem:

Web Dynpro for Java iViews previously inherited the Portal theme correctly in our Dev, QA and Production portals. For some reason, themes no longer work in our Development system, although they still work in QA and Production. All other types of iViews are properly using the Portal theme. But all Web Dynpro content is using the standard SAP theme (resources/sap.com/tcwddispwda/global/SSR/themes/sap_tradeshow/ur/ur_ie6.css)

Steps we have taken to remedy the problem:

- Using Visual Admin, checked Configuration Adapterservice (Runtime -> Display configurations tab -> webdynpro -> sap.com -> tcwddispwda -> Propertysheet default). Made sure the sap.useWebDynproStyleSheet property was set to 'false' so that the Portal theme would be used instead of the Web Dynpro theme.

- Ensured that the portal and the Web Dynpro Application run on systems that have the same releases (7.00 SP12)

- On the iView property screen, the Stylesheet property is set to 'ur' and the Supply Portal Stylesheet property is set to 'yes'. These values are inherited from the 'Web Dynpro Proxy iView' template. The Tray Type property is set to 'Plain', which displays the inner portion of the iView as white. But when it is set to 'Transparent', the inner portion turns to blue like the rest of the iView (but does not inherit the colors of our Portal theme).

- On the Web Dynpro Proxy Page template, the Stylesheet property is also set to 'ur' and the Supply Portal Stylesheet property is set to 'yes'.

- We have not set a default theme for Web Dynpro's in the Configuration Adapterservice (sap.theme.default) because none of our systems are set up this way, and we need to be consistent.

Your help would be greatly appreciated and points will be awarded for information that helps resolve this issue.

Thank you!

We found a solution to the problem - it appears something was a little bit off with the version of com.sap.portal.design.urdesigndata. Everything worked fine after our SP 12 upgrade, but our problem occured many months afterwards. We followed the directions given in note 1103770, and everything worked correctly.

Hi Brian,

I'm not a developer so I don't know how it it called exactly...

But could it be that the developer explicitly set the usage of the tradeshow theme in NWDS?

I heard that this is possible. By Default this should not be set but it might be the case that the developer set this (could offcourse be by excident)

Cheers,

Benjamin Houttuin

Thank you for your reply Benjamin. We are also the Portal developers and have not knowingly changed any theme settings on our applications. All of the Web Dynpro applications have been affected, so even if we did accidentally make a setting change on one of them, I don't believe it would affect all of them. Or would it? We are all out of ideas, so I will investigate this possibility further. Thank you!

Hi Brian,

I'm not sure but I gues the setting won't touch all the apps, so you can ignore my post on that then...

I'ts a really strange thing I must say... Maybe time to post an OSS message @ SAP ?

Good luck with it,

Benjamin

Hi,

Is it happening when you call WD apps standalone or within an Iview?

if your problem is faced when calling via Iview, then please check the property (not sure what but use portal style or portal theme) and try again

Hi,

This looks strange. Actually you have verified all the properties that WD do with the theme. Even then, if you have trouble, then check previewing the WD iViews. Check if theme applies in preview. If it appears in preview but not after assigning to role, then you may try to add one of the WD iView again to role and check the role. Just to verify if the current assignment works or not. Other thing, you can also try restarting the server. There are problems with theme and cache many times. So that may also help sometimes
