Need urgent help on ALV dropdown

Former Member

Hi experts, I have posted this before but was not able to get much feedback. I urgently need some feedback about this.

I had a dropdown in one of my grid's column. It was done in OO way using fieldcatalog DRDN_FIELD.

I want to know is it possible to fire any event directly after I select a value from the dropdown list? I just want to know whether is this possible and how to code it?

I keep getting answer like DATA_CHANGED event can be fire. I know it can be fired, but I need to register some event to capture the ENTER key being pressed.

This is not I want. I want event which can be fire RIGHT AWAY after user selection an entry from the dropdown.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi ,

You have to register an event for entre like this .

call method grid->register_edit_event

exporting event_id = cl_gui_alv_grid=>MC_EVT_ENTER.

Please reward if useful.

Thanks, but I mentioned earlier this is not what I want. I do not want to press anything. I want the event to fire right away after I select an entry from the dropdown. Sigh... guess it's not possible then.
