Text on SCREEN?!

Hello,

i my report is run, I would like to provide a little description of the report on the selection screen.

I can use something like:

SELECTION-SCREEN BEGIN OF LINE.

SELECTION-SCREEN COMMENT 1(83) descrp_1.

SELECTION-SCREEN END OF LINE.

INITIALIZATION.

descrp_1 = 'This is a description but only with 83 characters'.

The problem is, that the comment can only be 83 characters long!!!

Is there any other possibility to provide a descriptuion with more than 83 chacters on the screen?

thx,

holger

    • Holger,

      just think of the people who want (or have to) read the explaining text: It would be hard anyway to read text lines longer than 83 characters.

      The better way is: In editor, Goto->Documentation. Put in as much as you want.

      On selection screen, an info button will appear on top. If the user wants your information, he might dare to use it and see what you want to let him know.

      If he knows already (or doesnt' read): What is the text good for?

      C.

    You can either use multiple lines of comment or you can use subscreen on selection screen. From a subscreen area, call another screen. You can use HTML or text control on that screenn to format and show the text.

    Hi,

    It is not possible since the max length is 83.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    Use Goto->Documentation. You can add text as much as possible.

    Add a button on screeen like Help button in SAP Screen, which will show the text.
