Add an attribute display field by "state"

Add an attribute display field by "state"

Bit of a long shot but does anyone know if it's possible to add a custom field by the state (in the top right, under "Recently Accessed") that I can map a business attribute to so that it's displayed there?

@Dobi , the short answer is yes, this is very doable.  See second image below.

 

I did something similar.  In my case I added and alert to show the object is on an active Promotion Request.

What I did was add a yellow background color and included the text " - Active Promotion Request: <PR number and name>.

In your case you're looking for something like this:

I hard coded "Some Attribute Value".  Getting an attribute's value and displaying it rather than "Some Attribute Value" would be no problem.  In fact, you could display anything that it is possible to navigate to from the object.

Same thing with an attribute's value being displayed.

Yes! That is exactly right! 

Can you point me to some documentation to getting this setup?

@Dobi it would be much easier to work with you to implement it.  The code is done, I just need to know the attribute's internal name and if you need this on all object types of just some.

Maybe this is only for WTParts or WTDocuments?

Or maybe all objects as long as the attribute has a value?

Or all objects and if attribute has no value apply a default display?

 

How much to you know about Java?  Nothing, a little, a lot?

I can show you how to figure this kind of stuff out for other uses too.

@Dobi 

I did not use any documentation to do this. I just figured it out.

 

That said, I can teach you the method to the madness.
