This article explains how to apply the Fiori for Web pattern for the first time when working with GeneXus for SAP Systems

Consider a Transaction object called Customer. Look at the Patterns tab of that Transaction, which offers the following tabs: 

Focus on the Fiori for Web tab. 

Before selecting the "Apply this pattern on save" checkbox for the first time, you have to initialize the necessary Fiori resources in your Knowledge Base to generate the User Interfaces. To do so, you can:

1. Click on the "Initialize Fiori Horizon" link:

Fiori Horizon link by default in a Transaction - GeneXus 18 u4

2. Or select one of the following options:

  • Tools > Fiori > Initialize Fiori Horizon
  • Tools > Fiori > Initialize Fiori 3.0
  • Tools > Fiori > Initialize Fiori 2.0

This will depend on which version is needed.

After initializing the Fiori for Web pattern (with the Horizon Design System or other), GeneXus will start to import all that is necessary to define the design aspects of the different types of controls to be used on the screens and all the Floorplans (predefined layouts).

Once finished, you will be able to select the "Apply this pattern on save" checkbox and select a floorplan (by clicking on the new link offered: "Select floorplan..." ):
