dynamic class loading and abap_parmbind

Former Member

Hello,

I am using dynamic class loading with a

CREATE OBJECT obj TYPE (<classname>)

PARAMETER-TABLE <param_table>

statement. The objects I am trying to create have a constructor which expect a parameter called 'model' of type ref to cl_bsp_model, i.e. a simple object reference.

Now, as the structure of the parameter table is abap_parmbind, the value of a parameter needs to be of type ref to data - that is not a object reference.

How can I transfer my model object now to the class' constructor?

To put it more general: how can one transfer constructor parameters in dynamic class loading, when the parameters are not simple types (but references)?

Regards,

Sebastian Kamp

Hello Sebastian,

You can take the reference of the object to a data reference variable using command GET REFERENCE OF lv_object_ref INTO lv_data_ref.You can find a small program as an example below.I hope it helps.

REPORT YREF_TEST.

TYPE-POOLS: abap.

DATA: ls_parmbind TYPE abap_parmbind,

lt_parmbind LIKE HASHED TABLE OF ls_parmbind

WITH UNIQUE KEY name.

*----

  • CLASS lcl_test DEFINITION

CLASS lcl_test DEFINITION.

PUBLIC SECTION.

DATA: av_int TYPE i VALUE 4 READ-ONLY.

ENDCLASS. "lcl_test DEFINITION

  • CLASS lcl_main DEFINITION

CLASS lcl_main DEFINITION.

IMPORTING iv_obj TYPE REF TO lcl_test.

CLASS lcl_main IMPLEMENTATION.

av_main_int = iv_obj->av_int.

write av_main_int.

ENDMETHOD. "constructor

ENDCLASS. "lcl_main IMPLEMENTATION

START-OF-SELECTION.

DATA: lv_dref TYPE REF TO data.

DATA: lv_objref TYPE REF TO lcl_test,

lv_obj_dynref TYPE REF TO object,

lv_class_name TYPE string.

CREATE OBJECT lv_objref.

GET REFERENCE OF lv_objref INTO lv_dref.

lv_class_name = 'LCL_MAIN'.

ls_parmbind-name = 'IV_OBJ'.

ls_parmbind-kind = 'E'.

ls_parmbind-value = lv_dref.

INSERT ls_parmbind INTO TABLE lt_parmbind.

CREATE OBJECT lv_obj_dynref TYPE (lv_class_name)

PARAMETER-TABLE lt_parmbind .

Hello Sükrü,

thanks for your answer. I had tested a variant of your solution, but it did not work and I think I know why.

The GET REFERENCE OF command will return a data reference to the variable - regardless of the type of this variable. If the variable is an object reference itself, the GET REFERENCE will return a data reference to this reference and not the actual object.

Regards,

Sebastian
