Different modes of Table in SAPUI5


Hello everyone, we will learn what are different  modes available in sap.m.Table UI controls in SAPUI5 Applications. This is continuation of previous tutorial in How to create a Table in SAPUI5, please visit this if you haven’t and continue with this tutorial. So lets get started.

There are 6 predefined different modes available for Table. They are

  1. sap.m.ListMode.Delete
  2. sap.m.ListMode.MultiSelect
  3. sap.m.ListMode.None
  4. sap.m.ListMode.SingleSelect
  5. sap.m.ListMode.SingleSelectLeft
  6. sap.m.ListMode.SingleSelectMaster

To set the mode to the Table we have parameter called “mode”. Sample code to set mode while instantiating the table is

var oTable = new sap.m.Table("idPrdList", {   
      inset : true, // boolean
      headerText : "List of Products", 
      headerDesign : sap.m.ListHeaderDesign.Standard, 
      mode : sap.m.ListMode.None, // sap.m.ListMode     
      includeItemInSelection : false,    

You can also set the mode at runtime by calling the method setMode().

oTable.setMode(sap.m.ListMode.Delete); // delete mode  
oTable.setMode(sap.m.ListMode.MultiSelect); // multi-selection of rows

Lets look at each of these modes.

1. Delete Mode :  By setting the mode items/rows in the table are enable for deletion. In UI5 you can see delete button available to delete the items like below, when you set this mode.

2. MultiSelect Mode: By setting this mode, a check box is created for each and every row in the table to select the multiple rows in the Table.Output in UI looks like below.

SingleSelect Mode5. SingleSeletLeft Mode: This is similar to SingleSelect mode, the only difference is radio button is provide at the starting of each and every row. Output in UI looks like below

  1. if i want delete and Single select mode both at a time for a table, then??

    • Hi Divya,

      Thanks for your valuable comments.

      You can only set 1 mode at a time. But you can change the modes at run time by calling the below java script in your controller.
