    Hi ,
    steps :
    1.Create a button Control with Method : Click
    2.Use Applet control use Property CanInvoke:Click = ‘TRUE’
    3.Use Named Method on underline BC and invoke BS/WF

    *if you have some logic o button enable then use precaninvoke event.

    There are couple of options to do this.

    1. You can use a Named method at the BC level to do it
    2. You can write custom scripts to invoke the BS

    Hi Freinds

    I am providing some code as Example for above issue. I think this may helpful.

    Function WebApplet_PreCanInvokeMethod(MethodName, &CanInvoke)
    if (MethodName == “btnUpdateStatus”)
    CanInvoke = “TRUE”;
    return (CancelOperation);

    Function WebApplet_PreInvokeMethod(MethodName)
    if (MethodName == “btnUpdateStatus”)
    var oBS = TheApplication().GetService(“Workflow Process Manager”);
    var ipPS = TheApplication().NewPropertySet();
    var opPS = TheApplication().NewPropertySet();

    ipPS.SetProperty(“ProcessName”,”Test WF1″);

    return (CancelOperation);

    Steps which mentioned by sathish will used to invoke the Workflow in siebel.
    To invoke the business service it required the following changes in his same piece of code,
    var bs = TheApplication().GetService("Business Service Name");
    bs.InvokeMethod("Method Name", Inps,Outps);
    Rest of the code are same. kindly let me know incase if any concerns/Queries.
