Display of 4 screens as in Debugger

Former Member

Hi,

I want to split the screen in 4 equal parts and show different screens/results in each one.

Now -

1. I first thought of using the subscreens. But subscreens are not flexible and hence, as resolution changes, the screen is not seen as same by everyone. It is sort of hardcoding of the screen according to developer's screen resolution.

2. Then I thought of using the split-containers. I thought I would use a docking container with expansion as '9999' (Creating virtual full screen) and then splitting it in 4 equal parts. This might have worked, but we cant embed subscreens in containers. (I guess). As a result I cant put a an input field in the container itself.

But I see the same thing in the debugger screen. The debugger screen does have exact half of my screen resolution. It is extendible. And it also has Tabstrip and Input fields.

What is the thing that I am lacking?

1. Can I have a subscreen with flexibility of container? (can vary in size or can take exactly half of the screens space)

2. Can subscreen be included in containers? how?

You're right.

True and false. Not as part of a dynpro, but you may define an input field in an HTML control.

But I see the same thing in the debugger screen. The debugger screen does have exact half of my screen resolution. It is extendible.

What is the thing that I am lacking?

It is simply several dynpros with different number of subscreens of different sizes. It is NOT extendable.

I never tried, but I think it may be worth looking at the classes/function modules of the debugger, they could be reusable. It's what I think, but I don't have more information!

1. Can I have a subscreen with flexibility of container? (can vary in size or can take exactly half of the screens space)

No. I don't remember if it can be done in recent versions (7.02...)

2. Can subscreen be included in containers?

No

Thanks a lot for the answers.

I checked the HTML viewver class. I saw couple of examples. I needed F4 help for the input field. I am not sure if we can attach F4 help in HTML viewers, but the examples I saw did not have it.

So, I used ALV Grid with single column in edit mode.

It serves my purpose
