SAPUI5 Highlights - June 2016 Video

Here are some SAPUI5 highlights from June 2016. See the new Generic Tile, Gantt charts, XML templating, and annotations in the API. For more information, see the cloud Development Toolkit version at the link above (note that there may be a brief disparity in feature availability until the SAPUI5 version on the SAP HANA Cloud Platform is updated. The up-to-date documentation is also available here:

The Generic Tile container is now available in the sap.m library.
It supports various content types and has a new layout and more versatile features.
For instance, you can include profile pictures or logos, or use a title up to 5 lines long.
Chart Tiles let you display analytic content using different charts.
The Generic Tile has also been optimized to fit a variety of screen sizes.
For more information, check out the Explored app.
OData annotations are now included in the API Reference within the Demo Kit.
Here’s an example for removing the square icon shown next to “In Stock” in this list.
Go to the API and simply copy and paste the sample code found in the detailed annotation documentation.
Refresh your app to see that the icon has now been removed.
Gantt Charts visualize activities and resources, particularly in planning and scheduling.
The legends help you identify the shapes in the chart.
Using the dual view, you can show multiple aspects of the plan on the same screen.
And drag-and-drop to make an assignment, for instance, assigning an unplanned freight order to a resource.
You can incorporate a hierarchy in the tree table. And within the chart, shapes can be connected with relationships.
You can use XML templating to build generic, metadata-driven UIs instead of using APIs.
Annotations are combined with metadata to fill an XML template with parameters.
This template is then processed, creating an XML view.
The handy “Design-Time Source Code” button shows the view code you would have written yourself if you hadn’t used templating. The business data is then bound to display the final app.
Expression binding lets you put expressions directly into your view source – no need for a separate formatter.
