SAP Screen Personas 2.0 - F4 Control ID

Hi experts,

I'm trying to edit the f4 search help for article on ME51N transaction (hide tabs mainly). I've succesfully done it.

But when I access for the second time I get all the tabs again:

Following instructions on this link http://scn.sap.com/community/gui/blog/2014/04/12/sap-screen-personas-screen-id-and-control-id-overwrite-rules

I've found out that the control ID changes everytime I access the search help

ses[0]/wnd[2;SAPLWDTM_0000_1278;278]/search/ts

ses[0]/wnd[2;SAPLWDTM_0000_1304;304]/search/ts

ses[0]/wnd[2;SAPLWDTM_0000_1317;317]/search/ts

So I did a little research and with demo_regex_toy program I got a regular expression:

And added it to the ControlID logic transaction:

I can see no effect yet. Am I on the right track here? Has anyone solved this problem before?

Best Regards

    Hi Facundo,

    You must escape the square brackets in original control id (      eg: [ should be \[     ). So you can try with original control id as

    ^ses\[0\]/wnd\[2;SAPLWDTM_/d{4}_/d{4};...\]/search/ts$


    or


    ^ses\[0\]/wnd\[2\;SAPLWDTM\_/d{4}\_/d{4}\;...\]/search/ts$


    Thanks

    It is unrelated to the control ID issue, but if your main goal is to simply hide unwanted search help tabs, you don't need tab caching or additional actions. Setting the Visible flags is sufficient.

    Unnecessary caching usually degrades performance.

    Hi,

    I just posted a new question which also showed the change of ids issue in ME51N.

    ME51N> check the id of the column "Short Text".

    Then type something there>"Create">get Message popup> close popup>check the same column id - wow, it changed! Don't know why. Maybe Tamas has some idea?  Thanks.
