Data into a disable field

Hello there!

I've got a question for you, guys...

I have a screen in my online program that has a disable field. This disable field has to receive a code number from an optical reader, but since it is a disable field, it's not receiveing the data.

Do you have any suggestions for my problem?

Thanks in advise,

Flávia

Unfortunatly, the SAPgui will not handle taking data into a disabled field, I had a requirement for the same a while back, you must enable the field in order to have something written into it. Or you can create another field where the data can be written and you can programmatically fill the other field, but this may be redundant.

Rich,

Do you know if there is any system variable that indicates if the field has been filed by the keyboard or something like this?

Thanks,

No, SAPgui does not care how the data got there, by keyboard, or by scanner, doesn't care.
