When developing ADF applications, a common way to create or update a record is doing it in a popup. There are many ways to do it that I have seen in some of my last ADF projects, for example:
- Executing createInsert operation in the button’s action listener and then opening the popup programmatically
- Using an action listener to create the record and using showPopupBehavior with triggerType set to click (In this case, if the button is disabled on some condition, the actionListener will be executed anyway)
In this post I am going to show you another way, using popupFetchListener.
In this example we are going to drag and drop Departments view object as a table (we don’t really need it but we can see the new created record), and 2 buttons, one for creating records and other for editing them.
In each button we are going to add a showPopupBehavior component with triggerType property set to action and popupId proerty set to the id of our popup.
This will create a method in our bean where we have to check the button we have clicked in order the call CreateInsert opeartion only when we click on Create button.
The result of this implementation.
