Get input from JavaScript to Webdynpro Context


I've been working with the HTML island UI element to execute JavaScript and have been following the Web Dynpro HTMLIsland & HTMLContainer guide. In the guide it described how to send data from the context into the JavaScript and then display JavaScript alert messages with the content of the context. Is it possible to bring a value from JavaScript back into the context of WebDynpro?

    Hi Johnson,

    Yes, its possible to bring data from java-script file to WD via callback event.


    The above method signature has the parameter DATA of type string, through which the data of java script can be passed back to web dynpro.

    You need to create an event in web dynpro for HTML element and use DATA parameter to bind back to context node.

    Please refer page 20 to find out the details of callback function in Web Dynpro HTMLIsland & HTMLContainer

    Hope this helps you.

    I would like create function (who return value) in Web DynPro Abap using JavaScript. I found option using HTML Island.

    My step are by web site…

    site 20-21.

    I create script MyHTMLIsland.js who contains

    var MyHTMLIsland = {

    addCallback: function (callback) {

    callback.fireEvent('Event','Hello Web Dynpro'); } };


    DATA: lo_html_island TYPE REF TO cl_wd_html_island.
    IF first_time EQ abap_true.
    lo_html_island ?= view->get_element( 'HTML_ISLAND' ).
    lo_html_island->add_script_call( cl_wd_html_script_call=>new_call( )->variable( 'MyHTMLIsland' )->function( 'addCallback' )->add_callback_api( ) ).

    I have HTML_ISLAND under this is HTMLEVENT and HTMLSCRIPT

    HTMLEVENT have name EVENT and onAction HTML_ISLAND_EVENT


    wd_comp_controller->wd_get_api( )->get_message_manager( )->report_success( data ).

    HTMLSCRIPT have only source MyHTMLIsland.js

    Why this not working? What I have wrong?

    Thank you
