How to navigate into dev. object WDYA


Dear reader,

I have the following problem: I need my development tool to navigate to SE80/ development object type WDYA. Which is webDynpro ABAP application.

What I need is something like one of the following (to give the impression I tried before asking 😊):

a) option A I tried: use TR_OBJECT_JUMP_TO_TOOL for object WDYA is not supported (try single test the thing). Interestingly it works for object type WDCA (which is web dynpro configuration) and from there one could (via on-click on app.) jump to the application. That is where I got the code for the option B below.

b) option B: I tried to hack the editor and jump to the screen I want directly using the workbench classes. It is dirty and it does not always work. If you're interested, check my code:

What I need is something like RS_FUNCTION_SHOW function module to display a function module. There must be such thing for webdynpros too.

Thanks for reading that far, I will be glad if you have any pointers for me.

Have a nice day, Otto
