Element not visibile in WD-Explorer, but visible in WD-Appl. in Browser


we have a strange problem with some custom WD elements.

When i start the WD Application (SRM Shopping Cart) in browser, then i can see the WD elements as expected.

Field "Saving-Kategorie" is visible. When i open the technical help, i can see the element id "ZZ_SVKAT_ATTR".

So far no problem.

But when i open the WD comp in Webdynpro Explorer (SE80), a can´t see the element "ZZ_SVKAT_ATTR"

Field "PI-Nummer" with element ZZ_PI_SACH is over field "Saving-Kategorie" with element ZZ_SVKAT_ATTR. But in Layout Preview and in element tree there is no element ZZ_SVKAT_ATTR.

When i search element ZZ_SVKAT_ATTR i can´t find it in my view.

When i check or activate the view / WD comp there is no error or warning.

Any ideas how to make the element ZZ_SVKAT_ATTR visible in WD Explorer?

Best regards,

    Hi Benjamin,

    It seems that you are not looking at right view. Find out the right container which holds the view ui element by using technical help.

    Hi Benjamin,

    seems to be a standard application, which has been enhanced by a custom field.

    Most likely this field is beeing added dynamically to the view.

    If this is your appication, go through this how-to and you will find your field:…
