!!HELP!! F4 Search Help using SAP Web Dynpro

Former Member

I am trying to create a F4 Search Help using SAP Web Dynpro. I have created a BOR object and assigned the BAPI "BAPI_HELPVALUES_GET".

I want to call a elementary Search Help assigned to a field (this field is available on Web Dynpro screen) in the Custom table within SAP using the above BAPI.

What are the next steps to be followed to be able to call the F4 help and what parameters need to be passed through the Web dynpro?

Please advise

Thanks and Rgds

Hi Shankar

The OVS support in webdynpro responds to the <b>F4</b> key for opening and <b>Esc</b> for closing. So this might help you. Check this tutorial on how to implement Advanced Value Help in WebDynpro on advanced value help and object value selector - 9.htm

There is no direct to invoke a key board control from webdynpro. The eventing on 'key press' is not available. Hence try to develop your f1 or f4 help part in j2ee / java appl / componenet and call that from the main application.
