Long text in ALV

Former Member

I have created an ALV Grid. Here in ALV, in one of the column messages are displayed from message class of SE91. Now I have added HOTSOPT to the message. When user clicks on message then long text should be displayed. How can I fetch the long text of the message from message class and displayed in the new window?

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Shravan,

To achieve your requirement ,after the interaction(user click on the message) to get the long text get the relevant record from T100 table with ARBGB = message class. I dont know how do you get the relevant message from T100.

Do you have text-number???

To fetch the long text of the message u can use the function module READ_TEXT.

you have to pass following parameters to this FM .

Text Name : Your msgclass_msgno.

Language : language key

Text ID : NA

Text Object : DOKU

To find this parameters u have to GO TO--> HEADER in the window u r maintaing text..

and u will get the long test in o/p internal table.

and then this info you can pop up in new pop up screen u can use

REUSE_ALV_POPUP_TO_SELECT to display this message..
