ALV GRID - double click event - hot spot event

0 Kudos

Dear developers

I am building a custom application using ALV GRID (OO method).

I have three ALV's on the screen.

User selects a cell on the first ALV from the list. say a specific product group.

The second ALV displays the product records depnding on selection of first ALV. (this works fine).

when the user selects a cell of a specific column on ALV grid 2 using double click event or hotspot I am always getting row ID as 1 , irrespective of the user clickin on row 2 or 3 on the specific cell.

To carry out further processing , I need to get the exact row the user is selecting which I expected to be available in LVC_S_ROID. My further process works always with ROW ID as 1.

I am using event hot spot in alv grid 1. In grid 2 I tried both hot spot and double click . But both returns the index value of row as 1 , irrespective of the cell being clicked is beyond row 1. in second grid.

Looking forward for help or suggestion on this,

Hi Kumar

How do you implement your event handler?

The handler is implemented as follows for all ALV GRIDs.

I give below only the relevant one grid 2 from my code.

Class definition

**03/17/2005 skulist hotspot

handle_skulist FOR EVENT hotspot_click OF cl_gui_alv_grid

IMPORTING e_row_id e_column_id es_row_no,

Class implementation

**03/17/2005 sku list by currency hotspot on listprice

METHOD handle_skulist .

PERFORM handle_skulist USING e_row_id e_column_id es_row_no.


DATA gr_event_handler TYPE REF TO lcl_event_handler.

DATA gr_event_handler_4 TYPE REF TO lcl_event_handler.

The above are done in an include and are public in nature.

Also note that I have similar implementation for similar events for grid 1 bu the event handlers are registered in different names.

The code below is in the maib program , under a custom container for grid 2

CREATE OBJECT gr_event_handler_4.

SET HANDLER gr_event_handler_4->handle_skulist FOR gr_alvgrid1.

*Based on the user action on grid 2 this form is getting executed. But as I said earlier the parameter I am getting for index is 1 always.

FORM handle_skulist USING i_row_id1 TYPE lvc_s_row

i_column_id1 TYPE lvc_s_col

is_row_no1 TYPE lvc_s_roid.

Hi serdar

The issue I face is when I use Data_changed_finished event. For the time being I got around the issue by using the double click event after the user enter's the data into a editable cell.

It would be nice if at some point in time of you could direct me to a solution.

Your ALV GRID guide was most useful to me in my work.

Thanks for putting such a good document together.
