WPC Navigation that includes WebDynPro content

Former Member

Hello All-

I'm wondering if there is a method to include a WebDynPro iView into the navigation of a WPC site. The site I have is 90% WPC and 10% webdynpro, so I would prefer not to create wpc iviews for each page.

I do understand the limitation of embedding WebDynPro iViews into a WPC page, however I'm wondering if I can just include the WebDynPro as a separate navigation node without embedding it into the WPC page. Perhaps there's a way to specify the RID for the WebDynPro content within the site navigation??? Alternatively, is there a way to merge the content outside of the WPC?

The site structure I want is something like:

WPC Top Level Nav Page

-


WPC Page

-


WPC Page

-


WebDynPro Application

-


WPC Page

WPC Top Level Nav Page

-


WPC Page

-


WPC Page

-


WPC Page

-


WPC Page

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi,

there is special note for this 1243600. Which explains the problems with automatic resizing of url isolated iviews. I would recommend to make a test (access WD application through url iview) and see how your iview will behave. Then if it's not acceptable there are two ways:

- create own page template and set the desired height of containers. That would work in case you know where exactly those wd iviews will be placed. If not

- you may create a custom editor component which embeds a url iview and allows you to set itself width and height - I have done this and is kind of clumsy but it works (I put two fields where at design time you may set the width and height of the embedded iframe).

Real dynamic behavior - dynamic self adjustment responding to iview height - is quite hard to be achieved and sometimes depending on the iview complexity is impossible. I have never tried with WD iview but due to their complexity (produced html) I am confident it won't make it.

Hope that gives a good start.

Best,

Hi, epexpert.

Where can I find documentation about this custom editor component with embedded URL iView?

My workaround with sizing problems is a long height invisible GIF image on an html page (with an iframe embedded and linked to the page I want to show on WPC)... such a mess.

Thanks in advance!
