TableView with a Cell as TableView ? Possible ?

Hello out there,

i want to dipslay complex data on a bsp-page. The date is stored in a table. One collumn contains agian a small table. Is it possible to use a tableview to render the output ?

I used an iterator on my "outer"-tableview and in the method RENDER_CELL_START i tried the following coding, but there is nothing rendered on the bsp. Can anybody help ?

<i>CASE p_column_key.





IV_ROW_REF = p_row_data_ref


EV_CELL_VALUE = lt_table_data.

  • TEST BEGIN IF lt_table_data is INITIAL

IF lt_table_data IS INITIAL.

lwa_table_data-partner = '0060000505'.

APPEND lwa_table_data TO lt_table_data.

lwa_table_data-partner = '0060000509'.

APPEND lwa_table_data TO lt_table_data.



GET REFERENCE OF lt_table_data INTO lcr_table.

CREATE OBJECT lcr_table_view.

lcr_table_view->table = lcr_table.

lcr_table_view->fillupemptyrows = 'TRUE'.

lcr_table_view->headervisible = 'FALSE'.

lcr_table_view->footervisible = 'FALSE'.

lcr_table_view->visiblerowcount = 2.

p_replacement_bee = lcr_table_view.</i>

    Hi André,

    I don't know if you can place a tableView into a tableView cell. If not, you could just use a HTML table within a htmlb:textView (with code like this):

    METHOD if_htmlb_tableview_iterator~render_cell_start .
      DATA lr_text TYPE REF TO cl_htmlb_textview.
      FIELD-SYMBOLS <fs> LIKE LINE OF lt_table_data.
      CASE p_column_key.
          CREATE OBJECT lr_text.
          lr_text->id     = p_cell_id.
          lr_text->text   = '<TABLE>'.
          "read table lt_table_data.		
          LOOP AT lt_table_data ASSIGNING <fs>.
            CONCATENATE lr_text->text 
    		INTO lr_text->text.
          CONCATENATE lr_text->text
    		INTO lr_text->text.
          p_replacement_bee = lr_text.

    Hi Andre,

    nice problem, something I have not thought of yet, placing a whole tableview into a single cell.

    I don't know of any limitations that should prevent you from doing this (compared to other replacement_bees).

    I would suggest that you debug into your iterator code, and watch the tableview object you create, if it gets created in the right way, and how the iterator continues to work with the p_replacement_bee containing the tableview afterwards.

    What WebAS version/SP are you working on btw?

      Hi Maximilian,

      we are running WebAS6.20 on ABA and Basis SP44.

      I debugged the iterator and think that the tableview-object is well created, but what means that ? I don't know about the real minimum requeired fields in the object to have a well rendered output.

      The steps which are executed after my method are hard to understand, but i think there is nothing be done with p_replacement_bee.

      Kindly regards,
