    Hi Jean,

    you can try it. I have used same for following event

    if (pVal.EventType == SAPbouiCOM.BoEventTypes.et_CHOOSE_FROM_LIST && pVal.ItemUID == "matCrtBtS" && (pVal.ColUID == "V1"))




    oForm = clsAddOn.LDNA_Application.Forms.GetForm(pVal.FormTypeEx, pVal.FormTypeCount);

    SAPbouiCOM.DBDataSource oDBS_Details;

    oDBS_Details = oForm.DataSources.DBDataSources.Item("@CBF_CBS1");

    oCFLEvento = (SAPbouiCOM.IChooseFromListEvent)pVal;

    sCFL_ID = oCFLEvento.ChooseFromListUID;

    oForm = clsAddOn.LDNA_Application.Forms.Item(pVal.FormUID);

    oCFL = oForm.ChooseFromLists.Item(sCFL_ID);

    oDataTable = oCFLEvento.SelectedObjects;

    if (oDataTable != null)


    oMat = oForm.Items.Item("matCrtBtS").Specific;


    oDBS_Details.SetValue("U_FarmrCd", oDBS_Details.Offset, oDataTable.GetValue("CardCode", 0));

    oDBS_Details.SetValue("U_FarmrNm", oDBS_Details.Offset, oDataTable.GetValue("CardName", 0));



    if ((MatCurrentRowFmr) == oMat.VisualRowCount)


    SAPbouiCOM.DBDataSource dbData = default(SAPbouiCOM.DBDataSource);

    dbData = (SAPbouiCOM.DBDataSource)oForm.DataSources.DBDataSources.Item(1);


    oMat.AddRow(1, pVal.Row + 1);


    if (oForm.Mode != SAPbouiCOM.BoFormMode.fm_ADD_MODE)

    oForm.Mode = SAPbouiCOM.BoFormMode.fm_UPDATE_MODE;

    for (int i = 1; i <= oMat.VisualRowCount; i++)

    oMat.Columns.Item("V_-1").Cells.Item(i).Specific.Value = i;



    catch (Exception ex)


    BubbleEvent = false;

    clsAddOn.LDNA_Application.SetStatusBarMessage(ex.Message, SAPbouiCOM.BoMessageTime.bmt_Short, true);




    - regards

    Hi Jean,

    Can you just try this :

    oMatrix.Columns.Item("col_0").Cells.Item(oMatrix.VisualRowCount).Click(BoCellClickType.ct_Double, 0);

    Hope it helps...

    Thanks & Regards

    • Hi Ankit

      I have try your code :

      oMat.Columns.Item("col_2").Cells.Item(Lignerec).Click(SAPbouiCOM.BoCellClickType.ct_Double, 0)

      it's work but i have a status message error "Internal error 6001 message 131-183" in screen down

      The focus is now in my next column ( correct) but why this message?

      have you an idea?

      do you want my for this sequence?

    Hi Jean Marc,

    I would set the focus in the afterchoosefromlist just after setting the value in your column.
