How Come!!!. That was my first reaction when I saw the view layout of a webdynpro for abap component as

While output was:

And that was my first day when I heard about dynamic UI generation from my Beautiful team lead. It goes like:

There are classes for each UI element in webdynpro for ABAP

( I.e.  CL_WD_CHECKBOX , CL_WD_CHECKBOX_GROUP, CL_WD_INPUT_FIELD etc..)

One can add this created UI element object to the current View in WDDOMODIFYVIEW method of the view.

Let’s start with simple creation of Tray UI element in the View.

Exercise 1:

Create Tray UI element in the view.

Solution:

Create a Webdynpro component using transaction code Se80 and in the MAIN view create a transparent container named

TC_MAIN with flow layout. ( It’s a not mandatory to create it but it’s a good practice to create such transparent container

as it can be helpful if you are planning to change the layout of your view etc.. )

All the dynamic generated UI elements will be placed over this transparent container.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/MKxDyQ45nkwNzBpoxfJ4ewmj_m8JPnJPNhehsyDUWIEv8z3N8Po1qcARuowSsNMHzlpR9XAbYD6kc15mN5ld-t66mgshXdMjDSin4QLGIs7joe1rLXN3sX92aqdavaYz4w

Put the below code in your WDDOMODIFYVIEW method of the view and your tray UI Element will be ready.

method WDDOMODIFYVIEW .
"Let's Create Tray
data : lr_tray type REF TO cl_wd_tray.
data : lr_caption TYPE REF TO cl_wd_caption.
DATA : lr_container  TYPE REF TO cl_wd_uielement_container.
data : lr_flow type ref to cl_wd_flow_data.
data : lr_matrix_layout type REF TO cl_wd_matrix_layout.

"As we are gonna put the tray in TC_MAIN ( the transperant container )
"fetch it ...
lr_container ?= view->get_element( 'TC_MAIN' ).

"Need to Assign the flow layout information for this Tray
"As it is part if ROOTUIELEMENTCONTAINER ( with layout flow )

lr_tray->set_layout_data( lr_flow ).

EXPORTING

RECEIVING
control = lr_caption.

"' set header for tray
CALL METHOD lr_tray->set_header
EXPORTING
the_header = lr_caption.

endmethod.

Save , Activate and RUN

Exercise 2:


Add an input field in the tray with label attached to that input field and a button at bottom.

Solution:

As the input field’s Value property needs to be bind with View context node attribute, we need to create context node/attribute too.

In case of input field UI Element.

Create A method in Component controller Named: RET_CC_CONTEXT.

Exporting parameter : ER_CONTEXT  type ref to IF_WD_CONTEXT_NODE.

Put the below code in your WDDOMODIFYVIEW method and Run it Again.

If you see an Error while activation,scratch your head read the error description and solve it!

If you are not bored ....Try this

Exercise 3:


Get the Value user has entered in Name field and on click of the Button SEARCH Display it in popup.

Note: You need to implement the ONACTIONPROCESS_EVENT Method Which is we have bind with the Search button.

Happy Coding….
