Dynamic creating a button and adding the event handler to it

0 Kudos

Hi Experts,

I am able to create a button dynamically and attached the action

Below is  the code.

data:root type ref to cl_wd_uielement_container,
        bt type ref to cl_wd_button.

     root ?= view->get_element('ROOTUIELEMENTCONTAINER').

    bt = cl_wd_button=>new_button( text = 'Submit'  on_action = `SAY_HELLO` ).

    cl_wd_flow_data=>new_flow_data( element = bt ).
     root->add_child( bt ).

In the method 'SAY_HELLO'  I have written code to show one message. But it gives dump and does not allow me to create onactionsay_hello method even.

I have created SAY_HELLO as method type 1(i.e event handler method).

My expectation is :

One button should be created dynamically and after clicking it should prompt some message . and everything should happen dynamically.

I think code written by should work. try once code given by me. Still if you are getting dump. Please share the Dump's snap-shot.

Hello Chaudhury,

You are trying to map a method to the button, rather you should map an action to the button.

Instead of creating SAY_HELLO as method type 1(i.e event handler method). in method tab

Create an action say_hello in action tab.

I hope it will solve the problem.
