Hello Diego,

Not sure I understood your question correctly, but if you mean that you would like to display a multiline input field (like the one we have to enter a comment in standard business partner header view) all you have to do is to redefine the GET_P* method of the corresponding attribute of your context node, and set the field_type property to text.

Regards,

Nicolas.

This step, is ok. I'm able to show my long text. But allows me only 60 characters.

I want to handle a much bigger text.

Is the underlying field longer than 60 caracters?

Because there is no reason for such a limitation then... you should be able to display 10 lines of 100 caracters if you want, exactly as in the BP_HEAD component.

For displaying is no problem, but i can only read the first 60 characters.

And when i try to specify an data element larger at my table definition isn't possible.

Did you create the database table of your rapid application via SE11? Or did you use the user-guided wizard included in the rap tool ?

PS: I've just double checked the online help and here is what they say about maximum number of caracters for text area: << you can define fields of field type Long Text with sub-type Text Area. This field type allows you to enter text of up to 1333 characters. The sub-type renders the field as a text area instead of an input field. This happens if the field is shown in a form view and not in a table >>.

I've tried both.

I want to make something like the FM SAVE_TEXT does. For very large texts, at my application on CRM Web UI.

Can i use a GSTEXT component?

I don't think so. Obviously if you want to use a field that is more than 1333 caracters long, rapid application may not be the way to go... because you will need to implement the logic to save your long text yourself wihtin you own genil component class.

I'm afraid this is not something easy that can be explained in very few words in one thread. Maybe you should check the available blog (or wiki) on SDN that explain how to create a bol objects from a Z table.

Hi

Please declare the field you want store as STRING and then use GET_P method for text area ..its done...

Else

Define Text ids for that transaction and use BTTEXTH and BTTEXTALL relations to store back to BT
