How to display the role name in the dialog box when Delete button is pressed

  • I've a table specifying the roles and actions, if I check in the role and press delete button, then I should get a dialog box indicating that specific role

  • If I click on add button, I should get a dialog box or message box with the list of few other roles and on clicking on that role, a rolename should be displayed that has to be added to the respective table

  • I've created the sap.m.Table and I'm binding the JSON data

  • Enclosed the Image of the UI:

I've tried with various methods and I'm enclosing my code

Here is the code..

I can delete the item from the table, but I should get a dialog/message box indicating that, the checkmarked role in the table has been deleted

function delete1()
var v = false;
$('input[type="checkbox"]:checked').each(function() {
v = true;
alert("Checked item in the table will be deleted from the table");

if (v == false)
alert("Please check the item to be deleted");
var oModel = new sap.ui.model.json.JSONModel("JSon/etc5.json");
// Load JSON in model
//create table
var oRoles = new sap.m.Text({text: "{model1>Role}"});
var oAction = new sap.m.Button({text: "DETAILS",
type : sap.m.ButtonType.Emphasized,

// corresponding columns

var oColAbbr = new sap.m.Column({header: new sap.m.Text({text:"ROLES"}) });
var oColAct = new sap.m.Column({header: new sap.m.Text({text:"ACTION"}) });
// row template
var oRow = new sap.m.ColumnListItem();

// instantiating the table
var oTab = new sap.m.Table("app",{
inset : true,
headerText : "SOME DATA",
headerDesign : sap.m.ListHeaderDesign.Standard,
includeItemInSelection : false,
oTab.bindItems("model1>/emp", oRow); //binding data to the tables

var oButton = new sap.m.Toolbar({
content: [
new sap.m.ToolbarSpacer(),
new sap.m.Button({
text : "ADD",
textAlign : "Center",
width : "10%",
type: sap.m.ButtonType.Emphasized,
press: function() {
// oCDialog2.open();
new sap.m.Label({text:""}),
new sap.m.Button({
text : "DELETE",
textAlign : "Center",
width : "10%",
type: sap.m.ButtonType.Reject,
press: function() {
// oCDialog1.open();
//creating the icons
var iTab = new sap.m.IconTabBar({


new sap.m.IconTabFilter({
text: "HR",
icon: "sap-icon://group",
var page = sap.m.Page({
content: [iTab,oButton],
showHeader : false,
enableScrolling : true,
var app = sap.m.App();

It is probably easiest to use the Checkbox control and bind it's value to the same model as where the item lines come from (model1>/emp). In your delete method, you could then easily iterate through the emp array and test on the value representing the checkbox.

Whenever you delete an entry from the array, either UI5's MessageToast or MessageBox controls to show the message. Alerts may be blocked by "Check here to disable alerts from this website" functionality in some browsers.

You may also want to change the $.each to a $.grep instead. This loops through an array in pretty much the same way as $.each with one exception. If you return true from the callback, the element is retained. Otherwise, it is removed from the array.

Your code should look something like this:

items = this.getView().getModel("model1").getProperty("/emp");
items = $.grep(items, function (el, i) {
    if (el.propertyBoundToCheckbox) { 
        MessageToast.show("Deleting entry: " + el.getName())
        return false;
    return true; // keep the element in the array

Note: The code above pulls the model from the view, as that's a best practice. Try not to tie anything to the core, as the core is shared between all applications running in the browser window (e.g. in Fiori Launch Pad scenario).
