Hi ,

simply add the following parameters to the template Properties in HTML View of WAD

// Menu entry at the beginning and only on customer cells

<param name='CMENU_LABEL_1' value='Customer details'>

<param name='CMENU_FUNCTION_1' value='myMenuProcessor'>

<param name='CMENU_PARAMETER_1' value='1'>


<param name='CMENU_FILTER_1' value='0CUSTOMER'>

<param name='CMENU_VISIBILITY_1' value='X'>

<param name='CMENU_POSITION_1' value='TOP'>

// Menu entry at the end for IT homepage

<param name='CMENU_LABEL_2' value='Customer details'>

<param name='CMENU_FUNCTION_2' value='myMenuProcessor'>

<param name='CMENU_PARAMETER_2' value='2'>

<param name='CMENU_VISIBILITY_2' value='X'>

<param name='CMENU_POSITION_2' value='BOTTOM'>

// Menu entry at the beginning and only on material groups

<param name='CMENU_LABEL_3' value='Materials'>

<param name='CMENU_FUNCTION_3' value='myMenuProcessor'>

<param name='CMENU_PARAMETER_3' value='3'>


<param name='CMENU_FILTER_3' value='0MATGROUP'>

<param name='CMENU_VISIBILITY_3' value='X'>

<param name='CMENU_POSITION_3' value='TOP'>

Below would be the javascript handler.


switch (parameter){

case "1":

// Report-report-interface jump to customer details Web application in a new window

SAPBWOpenWindow(SAP_BW_URL_Get() + "&CMD=RRI&DATA_ROW=" + y +


+ y + "&IOBJNM=0CUSTOMER&RRI_RECEIVER=ABC","CustDetails",600,400);

SAP Online Help 02.04.2004

Web API Reference BW 3.5 239


case "2":

// Call IT help page



case "3":

// Filter material group and expand by material


"DATA_PROVIDER=" + escape(dataprovider) +



"&FILTER_VALUE=" + escape(parameter1) + "&FILTER_NODE_IOBJNM=" +

Hi Kai,

Thanks for your answer but it's not that I am searching. I already use this "parameter" in WAD.

What I am searching is where is stored the ABAP code which is used to build the context menu ! I need to add some new entry using cascade view (parent node/child node).

Thanks in advance

Hi Aleksi,

the ABAP CLASS for managing the javascript stuff is CL_RSR_WWW_JAVASCRIPT. But remember those classes are SAP internal using them in own programs can cause error or malfunctions in SAP Standard.

making submenus is not that easy.

Are you working on BI 7.0? Because in that case, to edit the context menu, you can create a web template and simply use the context menu web item in it to have the desired context menu when your template is run (you can even turn it off).
