I am not sure whether we can assign it at the screen properties level. But you can do one thing, call the FM SOTR_READ_TEXT_WITH_KEY by passing the context of the SOTR you want to read and get the text associated back in the ENTRY structure.

You can have a I/O field which is output only on the screen. And in the program you can assign the OTR text to this I/O field so that the OTR text will be displayed.

In classic dynpro this is not possible i think, all you can do is to read the otr-text like that coding:

IV_LANGU - language

iv_alias - the otr alias you want to read


LANGUAGE iv_langu

ID iv_alias

NR '0001'

TEXT INTO rv_text.
