reuse webdynpro ALV conversion to pdf in sapgui alv

Hi Experts,

I would like to know : if and how it's possible to reuse the functionality for

converting webdynpro ALV to pdf (using ADS server) :

purpose : quick generation of e-mail attachment from internal table

Reusing wanted in : SapGui OO ALV (CL_GUI_ALV_GRID) or CL_SALV_TABLE or new ALV for Hana CL_SALV_GUI_TABLE_IDA

i know obviously the way to print ALV to spool and convert_abapspool_to_pdf but the look is not

well enough for mail attachment...

i already reuse the AlvWDA .xls function conversion, but don't find the way with pdf conversion out of webdynpro application.

.xls conversion code sample :

data l_my_result_data type ref to cl_salv_ex_result_data_table.
data l_flavour type string.
data l_version type string.

l_my_result_data = cl_salv_ex_util=>factory_result_data_table( r_data = my_data "(type ref to data)
t_fieldcatalog = tfieldcatalog ). "(type lvc_t_fcat)

case cl_salv_bs_a_xml_base=>get_version( ).
when if_salv_bs_xml=>version_25.
l_version = if_salv_bs_xml=>version_25.
when if_salv_bs_xml=>version_26.
l_version = if_salv_bs_xml=>version_26.
l_flavour = if_salv_bs_c_tt=>c_tt_xml_flavour_export.

cl_salv_bs_tt_util=>if_salv_bs_tt_util~transform( exporting xml_type = if_salv_bs_xml=>c_type_excel_xml
xml_version = l_version
r_result_data = l_my_result_data
xml_flavour = l_flavour
gui_type = if_salv_bs_xml=>c_gui_type_gui
importing xml = me->xstring
mimetype = me->type ).

Kind regards,

      Hi Prema,

      I tried differents ways but not able to get the solution.

      For example, this below... but no succes...


      data l_my_result_data type ref to cl_salv_ex_result_data_table.

      data l_my_wd_c_table type ref to cl_salv_wd_c_table.
      data l_my_exp_pdf type ref to cl_salv_wd_export_pdf_acc.
      data l_my_result_data_wd type ref to cl_salv_wd_result_data_table.
      data l_my_comp_factory type ref to cl_salv_wd_comp_factory.
      data l_my_node type ref to if_wd_context_node.

      data l_flavour type string.
      data l_version type string.

      l_my_comp_factory ?= cl_salv_wd_comp_factory=>get_instance( ).
      l_my_wd_c_table ?= l_my_comp_factory->if_salv_wd_comp_factory~get_component_table( ).
      l_my_wd_c_table->if_salv_wd_comp_table_if~set_data( changing r_data_source = my_data->my_data_table->my_data ).

      xstring = cl_salv_wd_pdf_util=>generate_pdf_xml( l_my_wd_c_table->r_result_data ).


      In conclusion, I'll use the classical (not pretty) solution :

      data l_tdata_lvc type lvc_t_data.
      data l_tinfo_lvc type lvc_t_info.
      data l_thtml type w3htmltab.
      data l_xstring type xstring.
      data l_my_tbi type ref to zcl_tbi.
      field-symbols <l_tdata> type standard table.
      data l_my_alv type ref to cl_gui_alv_grid.
      data l_sprint type lvc_s_prnt .

      l_sprint-print = 'X'.
      l_sprint-prnt_title = '0'.

      call function 'REUSE_ALV_GRID_DISPLAY_LVC'
      * i_callback_program = l_repid
      it_fieldcat_lvc = my_alv->tfieldcatalog
      i_save = 'A'
      i_default = 'X'
      * it_sort = t_sort[]
      is_layout_lvc = my_alv->is_layout
      is_print_lvc = l_sprint
      t_outtab = <l_tdata>
      program_error = 1
      others = 2.
      * commit work.
      zcl_utilities=>convert_abapspooljob_2_pdf( exporting i_spoolid = sy-spono importing e_xstring = l_xstring ).

      If you find something, you are welcome...

      Kind regards,
