HI Vikram,

You can create push button in the output list. You have to use SET PF-STATUS statement.

Just follow these stepts for creation of PUSH BUTTON.

1. write SET PF-STATUS 'TEST'.

2. double click on TEST.

3. It will ask you to create status object. click on YES.

4. give the short description and press enter.

5. next screen you will find three things like... MENU BAR, APPLICATION TOOL BAR and FUNCTION KEYS.

6. click on the down arrow that appears next to APPLICATION TOOL BAR.

7. in the items, in first box write your name and press down the text. one popup box will come. press enter.

8. give the function text and press enter.

9. assign key for your push button. and press enter.

10. press enter and activate.

and run your program. you will get push button on output list.

Adding event for the PUSHBUTTON

For the pushbutton use an sy-ucomm ie SAVE to appln toolbar


CASE sy-ucomm.


write your code here to save in the appln server

Put a push-button on the application tool bar using

set pf-status statement:

See example program: demo_list_menu_painter

and then in the at user-command section, write the following code.

  CASE sy-ucomm.
open dataset <filename> for output in text mode.
loop at itab.  "Itab is the table that is displayed as the list
concatenate itab-field1 itab-field2 itab-field3 into v_string.
tranfer v_string to <filename>.
close dataset <filename>.

Hi Vikram,

First create one PF-STATUS.

and then handle the button by the event at user-command.

Set the PF-STATUS and add one Fcode at the application toolbar it will come as Button.

Then use Event AT USER-COMMAND and write your code for storing the list ouput i.e. internal table into an file on application server i.e. using OPEN DATASET Statement.

you will find example on this in SAP also just going to F1 help on Open dataset statement.

I hope this will help you.
