Hi Maulik,

The tutorial didn't explain anything about the input fields to the smartforms. U should declare a context in the component controller to get the input to the Smart forms FM.

Thanks for your your prompt response. It was quite helpful.

For now, I commented out a lot of code and modified another set of code to make the smartform work without the input field.

I haven't yet figured out how I am going to pass the input from the screen to the method. I deployed a smartform using a BSP long time ago which was quite easy and straight forward. My current task is to migrate it under Web Dynpro.

I am an experienced ABAP developer however I am just getting my feet wet in WD4A.

If you have any specific pointers as to how to move one input field from the screen to the method would be helpful.

Thanks & Regards,

hi Maulik ,

how to move one input field from the screen to the method would be helpful

1 create a context attribute attr1 of type string under context node say UI

2 go to ur rootelement container in ur view , right click ->insert element

insert Input Field UI

3 bind the Value property of ur Input UI to this context attribute attr1

4 in ur appropriate method , where u want to obtain the field value , press CONTROL + F7 for controol wizard

select the radio button read context node /attribute , selct the attribute attr1 , which is binded to ur input UI

the code wizard wud automatically , generate the corresponding code for u , using the get_attribute method

DATA lo_nd_ui TYPE REF TO if_wd_context_node.
  DATA lo_el_ui TYPE REF TO if_wd_context_element.
  DATA ls_ui TYPE wd_this->element_ui.
  DATA lv_attr1  LIKE ls_ui-attr1.
*   navigate from <CONTEXT> to <UI> via lead selection
  lo_nd_ui = wd_context->get_child_node( name = wd_this->wdctx_UI ).
*   get element via lead selection
  lo_el_ui = lo_nd_ui->get_element(  ).
*   get single attribute
      name =  `ATTR1`
      value = lv_enable ).

//reading the context attribute ATTR1 under the context node UI

I hope it wud be helpful
