Removing Asterisk(*) from Caption in WD Abap

Hi All,

In my webdynpro component i have a table and in that one of the column i have marked it as required field. So due to this in the header an asterisk (*) comes in the left side of the header. Is there any posibility where we can remove the asterisk and still it should behave in the same way, i.e the column should be a mandatory field. I tried to change the property from Caption to Textview but it didnot changed. Please let me know if this is possible?

Thanks,

Salish

    Hi Salish,

    The star mark you is due to the state property in the column. If you change this property from Required to Normal Item, the mark would go, but the validation for the field not to be empty must be done explicitly.

    Hi,

    If it is not reflected, cross check again for the property of 'labelFor'.

    And also try to change the property from Required field to normal and do your custom code for validation.

    Hi Salish,

    If you dont want asterisk (*) on the left side of the column header, change the property from required to normal and do required validation as per your requirement.

    I.e read table ( and if column value is initial) , just raise an error message.

    Hope this helps you.

    Thanks
