Hi Colleagues and Experts,

Is there any function in this? I'm using SAP Netweaver 7.4

    Many Thanks to Vivek.

    That was a good hint to search further the functionality inside FPM.

    The feature is available in the new FPM form only (FPM_FORM_UIBB_GL2)

    Define these additional field descriptions in method if_fpm_guibb_form~get_definition:

    - input_prompt

    - input_prompt_ref

    Best regards,

    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    Please check the image below. Are you trying to achieve something similar. The highlighted text 'Enter Wo# and press enter' disappears when you hit enter in the input box.

    This can be achieved by setting inputfield UI element  property 'inputprompt' as shown below.

    Let me know if this works for you?

    Regards,

    Vivek

    Hi Steve,

    I doubt if there is any such functionality in WebDynpro. However tool tip can be used as an alternative in both freestyle and GUIBB's to show help functionality to users related to that UI element.
