Access-Keys and Conflicts with Browser-Shortcuts

Hello folks,

I've recently developed some generic OO-Content to allow for an activation of access-keys for all qualified UI-Elements in one View API, so I don't have to cast against every single element or even use abominations like admin personalization.. Having done that, the result looks promising but the handling is a mess because the alt-shortcuts assigned by the framework collide with a lot of the Browser-Shortcuts, at that, even the internal shortcuts that are named by SAP in the official documentation that supposedly get assigned to another shortcut automatically do bug out.

Some points about the company environment:

  • It's a strict, accessibility-requirement that all elements can be accessed via hotkeys
  • we use IE-7 and FF-17 which are blocked against any configuration, no other browsers are made available

Any ideas or approaches what I could do about these overlapping problems? Hack the WDA_Framework? Primal scream therapy?...

Cheers, Lukas

    Hi Lukas,

    I don't know if this will help to resolve your issue, but one possibility is to search SAP notes for "corrections for unified rendering" to see if there are notes for your release version. If you are up-to-date already or if the corrections don't improve the issue, creating a customer message with SAP may provide an answer.

    • Cleaning up some old stuff. This conflict can only be solved from Browser side, since the ABAP runtime doesn't know the browser shortcut configuration. So in case the browser configuration is blocked (like in my case) try avoiding labels that start with Characters of the Standard Browser shortcuts :-/
