How to Center Align Header Text in SALV

0 Kudos


I am facing an issue to set my header text in center.

I want to center align my text. How do i get my header text exactly in the center?

I have attached my code below. I tried Multiple ways but the position my text did not change. I want to align the header text in the center.

Thank You.

That's not supported by SALV (as many other things), only directly with the OCX control (via CL_GUI_ALV_GRID).

Style values are defined in the include <CL_ALV_CONTROL>. It has been already discussed in the forum, so I let you search.

Accessing the control (CL_GUI_ALV_GRID instance) from SALV has been already discussed too.
