How can i know how many records are selected in an alv grid?

0 Kudos

Well here is my code


READ TABLE gt_doc_txt INTO wa_doc_txt INDEX ps_selfield-tabindex.
DELETE gt_doc_txt
WHERE cod_producto = wa_doc_txt-cod_producto.

it works when i hardcode the times of the do, but i need to know how many record are selected to know how many times the do have to work.

The code are in the user_command USING pv_ucomm.

Which kind of ALV? CL_SALV_TABLE or the old CL_GUI_ALV_something? If it's something oldie like the FM 'REUSE_ALV', I fear I cannot tell you, I'm old, but a failsafe device on my memory prevents me to access data from those dark years when I was used to FM's and FORMs...

Well, suppose user selected 10th and 20th record, so cursor is on line 20... your code delete 20th record 2 time, previously records 20 and 21... 😞

Time to switch to CL_GUI_ALV_GRID (edit?) or CL_SALV_TABLE or to read IS_LAYOUT documentation in some outdated FM ... HTPP error 419 ...

Thanks to all, i just create a new column with a checkbox, and the user have to put X on the records who wants to delete. Thanks to all, it is my first question here.
