Create Form in New Container

I am completely new to Web Dynpros. I am trying to complete SAP's NET310 course to get more knowledgable in this area.

In one of the exercises, it gives the following steps:

For both views ceate a form displaying a label and an input field for each context attribute of the node FLIGHTINFO. Use the websynpro Code Wizard to perform this step.

1. On the layout of the view INPUT_VIEW, create a form with references to the context attributes CARRID and CONNID. Use the Web Dynpro Code Wizard to create the form.

a) Edit the Web Dynpro view and choose the Layout tab

b) Mark the ROOTUIELEMENTCONTAINER UI element in the UI element hierarchy

c) Start the Web Dynpro Code Wizard by clicking the corresponding button in the Web Dynpro Explorer bar. Select the template for generating forms by double clicking on the related item

d) Click the context button, then double click the context node (FLIGHTINFO) in the dialog box

e) Mark the check box labeled "Create Form in new Container"

f) Mark the check box labeled "Create Section Header". Adapt the text, which is displayed as the section header if desired.

Ok, so here is what I have done while following these steps:





After double clicking on "Flight Info", I get to this screen:

e) So this is my problem - I do not see a "check box labeled "Create Form in new Container""

f) I also do not see a "check box labeled "Create Section Header"".

Can anybody advise why I am not seeing these settings??? I am a total beginner with Web Dynpros and am just trying to do the exercises to get a basic understanding of how they operate.

I appreciate any help offered.

    Hi Noel,

    You have to select check box UI element from the pick list.

    Have a look at this web dynpro component : WDR_TEST_UI_ELEMENTS.

    This component will give you information of all UI elements and their usages

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Noel,

    I am experiencing the same problem now that you were having back in 2014. Did you ever find a solution? If you did, would you please share it?

    Thank you so much,

    Joanne Tegtmeyer

    • Hi Joanne,

      Perhaps you are running an older version where this feature is not available.

      In newer systems (the example below is on a NW 7.31), you can see the 'Container Properties' section.

      Even if you do not have these options in your system, you can manually create a new TransparentContainer UI element and create the Form from there.

      Also, the Section Header can be manually added to the container.
