Hello Colleagues,

I have defined a dictioanry search help which has 3 exporting paramter.

Now when i use this search help in the Web Dynpro context, i get one of the parameter for the attribute that i use the Search Help for.

The question here is i want the information of the other 2 exporting paramter also in the context. I tried to put the same name as in the exporting parameter and that in Context and expected the data to come but it did not work.

Exporting parameter :




Context :

Name -> Function Name, Dictionary help defined here.

Application Name -> Expecting Application name from Search Help

Can you please tell where am i going wrong.

Thank you in Advance.

Best Regards,

One of Thomas Jung's reply for the same query with an example

The main point is that your DDic Search Helps must have exporting and importing parameters. The search helps must be used within the same structure and have their parameters mapped. The attributes that trigger the search help must be in the same context node and be defined via this structure:

Be aware that import and export parameters for the search help are determined only within the same context node (see also Transport of Values for the Input Help), and even then only if a Dictionary structure is assigned to the node.

Here are some screen shots to demonstrate. I have two search helps. The first lets you choose a table. The second one lets you choose a field within the table - so obviously linking them is pretty important.

In the Table SH, the table_code is the exporting parameter.

In the Field SH it is an importing parameter.

Here is the structure that combines them alltogether.

I've also done Search Help Field Assignments.

Now if I use ZMDM252_RSMD_RS_S_MDM as the source structure of my node, the WD runtime will do the rest of the work for me automatically.

Hi Piyush,

I guess this is due to the fact that a Dictionary structure must assigned to the node.

Please assign a dictionary structure to your node and then check whether all exporting parameters of Search help are passed to context node or not.
