Enhancement of existing ECC field with input help.


I need to do enhancement for existing ECC field having input help like accounting clark (BUSAB) .

In ECC for this field check table is assigned to domain (data element). So we created enhancement in data model with same data element as entity SUT3 and enhanced UIBB also.

But it seems that in UIBB the field is added without input help and also there is no creation of text attribute in FPM for check table.

Can anyone help by providing correct procedure?

    One way this can be done is enhancing the GET_DATA or GET_DEFINITION method. In the field definition table, there is a field for fixed values that can be used. It is actually an internal table that can be populated for each field in the catalog.

      Hi Abdullah

      Thank you for reply. Means it is clear for any enhancement in UIBB for the field with check table used for input value along with text (Description) is not possible only through customization but we need enhacement inĀ  GET_DATA or GET_DEFINITION method also

      Second point why after enhacement in UIBB enhaced field with check table shown as input field only without any input help (Like editable text box only without F4 help)

    Hi Sanjay,

    I'd recommend that you make yourself familiar with the different option of value and search helps offered by FPM first. All details are described by the FPM cookbook that is linked within all MDG related enhancment guides.

    Then you should consider existing MDG enhancement guides since those usually contain examples that might not fit 100% to your use case, but could be easily adapted.

    Finally you can of course always take a look at the standard MDG implementations. Those contain many examples for value and search helps.

    Best regards
