[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") // when having a list 
    // Option 2
    // Option 3
    // Option 4

Note: When using a List, it’s oEvent.getParameters().listItem instead of oEvent.getParameters().item.

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
    // 5b
    this.getView().getModel().getProperty(sPath + "/ID") 

[CAP] Query teamMembersSize from SuccessFactors

const sfsfSrv = await cds.connect.to('sfsf')

// Option 1: Query Notation
const response = await sfsfSrv.run(SELECT`teamMembersSize`.from`User`.where`userId = ${req.user.id}`)
console.log("option 1: " + response[0].teamMembersSize)

// Option 2: HTTP method-style
const response2 =  await sfsfSrv.get(`/User('${req.user.id}')/teamMembersSize/$value`)
console.log("option 2: " + response2)

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


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


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!")
        // Now submit your changes
          success: () => MessageToast.show("Success!"),
          error: (err) => alert(err)

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