Lookup PCF ...the second.. this time for real! I had a look how a Lookup PCF works, what I can do with it and what not, how to detect the settings made by the maker, and more.... Even if the most of it is not supported for now, it helps me understand the Lookup role in the PCF-puzzle.
According to the docs, we can start using the PCF Lookup.Simple. But there is a small bundling issue. After fixing that, the customizing possibilities lets me dream about amazing features. Dream with me!
Can you believe the featured image is a form? A model-driven form with a PCF on it, and nothing else?

At first I thought that it could be done also with standard possibilities, but she said that there will be quite a few Yes/No fields. Besides that, it should be "colorful and... Continue Reading →

So here is everything I know (until now) about this. PCF Version First things first. What is the PCF... Continue Reading →
In the Part1 of the blog post we saw how to set up the CDS projects, and also the first Azure DevOps Pipeline which allows us to grab the customizations, extract the content and commit to the github repository (inside a CDS project). In this blog I'll write about the second pipeline, which I use... Continue Reading →
This week I've made some DevOps Pipelines. I'm a bloody beginner in this area, but I had a vision about how it should work. "A man with a plan". 🙂 So I've googeled quite a few, and I've found helpful blogs from Tae Rim Han, Benedikt Bergmann and Ryan Spain (I'll post all the links... Continue Reading →
