Input help selection problem in SAP GUI screen

Hi All,

We are using a SAP GUI based transaction for one ESS service. In this service, we have a input field. This field is defined as dictionary field And its picking F4 values from dictionary.

Now we have a problem here.

We have to set this field as mandatory(set in fields property using screen painter). Everything was fine, just before we did testing 😊

When user host this service, for above mentioned field user get to see one "?" mark. When user does not select any of the entry provided by F4. user gets a message "please fill mandatory field" and input field contains first entry from F4 help.

Now this is very confusing, so we want to avoid selection of this entry.

if any of you have faced similar problem ??

any suggestions here.

    Yes Sudir ,

    We also stopped a bit at this point.

    Wht we did is impemented all the mandatory checks at module pool itself and throwed status msg by using Message class.

    Now if a user leaves any mandatory field , the status msg will point the filed he left blank ..

    But Cursor won't point to that field .
