How to implement Toolbars in a Page PeopleSoft

Toolbars are replacements of traditional push buttons, they brings many advantages for developers on the table such as:
  • Very easy to implement
  • No alignment required
  • Their page behavior can be controlled from PIA
  • Easy to debug since the underlying code is written in App Class/Package

While the developers enjoy these advantages while implementing Toolbars however, once implementated, the end users enjoy the ultimate benefits such as:
  • The page looks more aligned with modern web based pages
  • Easy to navigate through various pages involved in the wizard like applications
  • For the pages with bulk data which makes it long with scrolls, the Toolbars with actionable options can be displayed both in header and footer areas. This makes the end user's job easy to take the actions on page.

These are the steps to implement Toolbars:

  1. Identify the icons/buttons required on the page
  2. Create/modify the buttons that are required to be displayed on Toolbar in the page
  3. Create new Toolbar Definition and add the buttons
  4. Develop the application package/classes which contains underlying code for toolbar action
  5. Add the delivered sub page for toolbars into the page where this needs to be implemented
  6. Add the PeopleCode into the page activate PeopleCode to initialize Toolbars on page
  7. Add the PeopleCode in the FieldChange event to trigger the underlying PeopleCode
