[SAPUI5] Get data of an Item of a List or Table

All options have in common that you first try to get the binding context from the list/table element via the event. Having the right context, you can either use the getProperty() function to get a specific property, or use the getObject() function to get all data.

onClick: function (oEvent) {
    // Option 1
    oEvent.getParameters().item.getBindingContext().getProperty("ID")
    // Option 2
    oEvent.getParameters().item.getBindingContext().getObject().ID
    // Option 3
    oEvent.getParameter("item").getBindingContext().getObject().ID 
    // Option 4
    oEvent.getSource().getBindingContext().getObject().ID 
}

Or you could also use the sPath property from the binding context and directly get the data from the model.

onClick: function (oEvent) {
    // Option 5
    const sPath = oEvent.getSource().getBindingContext().sPath 
    // 5a
    this.getView().getModel().getProperty(sPath).ID 
    // 5b
    this.getView().getModel().getProperty(sPath + "/ID") 
}

[SAPUI5] Get Icon for MimeType

API Reference IconPool: https://sapui5.hana.ondemand.com/sdk/#/api/sap.ui.core.IconPool

In my case I used a custom formatter and the getIconForMimeType() function from the IconPool to get the required Icons for my list items.

myView.xml

icon="{path: 'mimeType', formatter: '.formatter.getIconForMimeType'}">

formatter.js

        getIconForMimeType: function(sMimeType) {
           return sap.ui.core.IconPool.getIconForMimeType(sMimeType)
        }

[SAPUI5] Get i18n texts

To simply get access to i18n texts, I useally add this helper function to my BaseController.js

// helper for direct access to the ResourceBundle getText() function
getText : function (sTextKey, aParamter) {
    return this.getOwnerComponent().getModel("i18n").getResourceBundle().getText(sTextKey, aParamter)
}

Texts can then be read in every controller with

// i18n: objects=Amount of objects: {0}
this.getText("objects", [iLength])

[SAPUI5] Parse error message

If the error response is type json:

        oModel.callFunction("/getData", {
          method: "GET",
          urlParameters: {
            ID: myID,
          },
          success: oData => {
       
          },
          error: oError => MessageBox.error(JSON.parse(oError.responseText).error.message.value)
        });

If the error response is coming from a Gateway and has an XML body (link):

 MessageBox.error(jQuery.parseXML(oError.response.body).querySelector("message").textContent)

[SAPUI5] Call function of another controller using EventBus

https://sapui5.hana.ondemand.com/#/api/sap.ui.core.EventBus%23overview

In the receiving controller you need to subscribe your eventId and function you want to call from the second controller:

// Attaches an event handler to the event with the given identifier on the given event channel            
this.getOwnerComponent().getEventBus().subscribe("Default", "myEventId", () => {
    this._myFunctionIWantToCall();
});

The sending controller has to publish the event to trigger the function call:

// Fires an event using the specified settings and notifies all attached event handlers.
this.getOwnerComponent().getEventBus().publish("Default", "myEventId", {});

[SAPUI5] Get and set properties of a binded model and submit changes

Get:

const oModel = this.getView().getModel()
const sPath = this.getView().getBindingContext().sPath
const sID = oModel.getProperty(sPath+"/ID")

Set:

const newID = "12345"
oModel.setProperty(sPath+"/ID", newID)

When using the set property function, you can now submit your changes this way:

        // First check if there are any changes    
        if (!oModel.hasPendingChanges()) {
           MessageToast.show("Nothing to do!")
           return
        }
        
        // Now submit your changes
        oModel.submitChanges({
          success: () => MessageToast.show("Success!"),
          error: (err) => alert(err)
        })

This way is much more comfortable, than using oModel.update().

[SAPUI5] Filter on Model read

this.getModel().read("/Object", {
                filters: [
                    new Filter({
                        path: "firstName",
                        operator: FilterOperator.EQ,
                        value1: "Max"
                    }),
                    new Filter({
                        path: "lastName",
                        operator: FilterOperator.EQ,
                        value1: "Mustermann"
                    })
                ],
                success: oData => { },
                error: err => { }
});

[SAPUI5] Binding with filter on XML View

https://sapui5.hana.ondemand.com/sdk/#/topic/5338bd1f9afb45fb8b2af957c3530e8f.html

There are two ways to use a filter.

Option 1:

items="{
				path: '/myItems',
				parameters : {
				  $filter : 'itemName eq \'myItemName\'',
				  $orderby : 'createdAt desc'
				},
}">

Option 2:

items="{
				path: '/myItems',
				parameters : {
				  $orderby : 'createdAt desc'
				},
				filters : {                                     
				  path : 'itemName ',
				  operator : 'EQ',
				  value1 : 'myItemName'
				},
}">

[SAPUI5] Toogle Dark mode from Shell Header

There are several different types of buttons you can add to the Shell Header: https://sapui5.hana.ondemand.com/sdk/#/api/sap.ushell.renderers.fiori2.Renderer%23methods/Summary
For my test I choose the “addHeaderEndItem” Button. Add the fowlloing logic in the Component.js file to create the button and the logic for switching the theme:

		_addHeaderButton: function () {
			const oRenderer = sap.ushell.Container.getRenderer("fiori2");
			oRenderer.addHeaderEndItem("sap.ushell.ui.shell.ShellHeadItem", {
				id: "toogleTheme",
				icon: "sap-icon://circle-task-2",
				visible: "{device>/orientation/landscape}",
				tooltip: "Switch Theme",
				press: (oEvent) => {
					const toogleButton = oEvent.getSource();
					if (toogleButton.getIcon() === "sap-icon://circle-task-2") {
						sap.ui.getCore().applyTheme("sap_fiori_3_dark");
						toogleButton.setIcon("sap-icon://circle-task");
					} else {
						sap.ui.getCore().applyTheme("sap_fiori_3");
						toogleButton.setIcon("sap-icon://circle-task-2");
					}
				}
			}, true);
		},

Afterwars you need call the method in the init() function of the component. No reload the app and you will find the new button in the top right corner. Pressing will switch the theme to dark or back to light theme.

[SAPUI5] Message Box

https://sapui5.hana.ondemand.com/#/entity/sap.m.MessageBox
https://sapui5.hana.ondemand.com/#/api/sap.m.MessageBox

			onRemoveItem: function (oEvent) {
				const sPath = oEvent.getSource().getParent().getBindingContext().getPath()
				const oModel = this.getView().getModel()
				MessageBox.confirm(
					this.getModel("i18n").getProperty("MessageBoxText"), 
					{
						actions: [MessageBox.Action.YES, MessageBox.Action.NO],
						emphasizedAction: MessageBox.Action.YES,
						onClose: (sAnswer) => {
							if (sAnswer === MessageBox.Action.YES) oModel.remove(sPath)
						}
					}
				)
			},
