HI sush,

You want to retrieve data against which you want to select

Value Node--Person

Value Atribute--A,B,C

for check box--C value attribute.


one thing you can do--

int size=wdContext.nodePerson().size();

for(int i=0;i<size;i++)



// then you will get your value.

//aslo you can set othe node...

In the layout, create a column using a checkbox as the tableCellEditor and then create a context element (say - rowCheckBox) in the table node of type boolean for the checkbox and bind this element to this context element.

Then in the controller in the action of the save button you need to write the following code :

public void save (){

// Declare an object of RFC and bind it

// if RFC name is ABD

ABD_input rfc = new ABD_input();


for(int i =0; i< name of the table node ; i++){


//declare an object of the structure and then set the value of the two columns in the structure fields //and then add the structure to the import parameter of table type.

TableStructure ts = new TableStructure (); // the table is of type TableStructure



rfc.addSaveRows(ts); // SaveRows is the name of the internal table.






}catch(Exception e){



Hope this answer you to solve the problem.

Hi ,

As, you might have got the solution from above post's.

I want to add little more information to help you to design your UI.

UI inside UI will increase your overhead time. Screen rendering will take some time.

If still you want to go for checkbox in table then.

create a value node i.e. Empdetails.

now create value attributes say --> name , add, tele and CheckBoxSelected (it's a boolean variable).

Add this context node to table.

Set CheckBoxSelected = false (as default value).

Bind CheckBoxSelected to CHECKED property of checkbox.

Now, you can write your logic to access selected checkbox.

Or you can take help of following code.

for(int i = 0; i < wdContext.nodeEmpdetails().size(); i++)





/* Write your logic



Please correct me if i am wrong.

I don't understand this: Why do you need to select a table row "to get that field values"? What does that mean?

Hi sushama,

There is no need to create an extra column with check box in the table to select muliti rows. U can do that by settting the selection mode property of the table to multi selected.

int size = wdContext.node<name>().size();

int leadSelection = wdContext.node<name>.getLeadSelection;

for(int i=0; i<size; i++)


if (wdContext.node<name>().isMultiSelected(i) || leadSelected == i)


I<node name>Element ele = wdContext.node<name>().get<Attribute>ElementAt(i);

// now get the attributes of the element ele and set it to the desired node element.



please refer this link for more.


If u still want to go ahead with the check box requirement, please let me know i will help u out..

Follow this procedure..

1. Create one action for check box

2. In this way any two row will be selected.

for (int i = 0; i < 2; i++)
			wdContext.nodeTestNode().setSelected(i, true);

3. Set Node cardinality 0..n

4. Further , if want to put certain condition then u can in this code.

Best Regards

Hi Sush,

It seems you want to simulate the functionality which SAP EP screens use to have in it initial releases. Where whenever the user clicks on the check box the entire row is selected. However just to inform you, SAP has now shifted to a standard of multiselection of rows by just clicking the row number.

You can do the selection as well as multiselection of rows without even having the checkboxes.

Well if that is the requirement is to do it using the checkbox only then you can follow these steps:

1) Create the checkbox as the cell editor of your column 1

2) Create and bind a action to the toggle event.

3) Go to the action tab of View designer and add parameters to the action which you have binded to the checkbox.

Add following parameters:

1) Checked -- Datatype: boolean

2) nodeElement -- Datatype: I<NodeName>Element.

Now click on the layout --> Right click on the checkbox UI element from the Outline pane -> Click on Parameter mapping.

Do the mapping of the parameter checked and nodeElement by dragging the parameter to the Action.

By this you will complete the process of parameter mapping.

Now in the event method of check box where you want to know the selected row details, use this code:

int roeNumber = nodeElement.index();
String val1 = nodeElement.get<AttributeName>();

I hope this helps and solves your issue. Please revert back in case you want any further help.

Thanks and Regards

I recommend to use the Table UI element selection as designed and not adding a column of check boxes. Just set the selection cardinality of the data source node to 0:N and everything works out-of-the box. You can then select multiple rows with CTRL-Click.
