Fields with automatically showed details for input


We have again met the need to figure out how to configure fields in which automated details would show up after user inputs some value in the nearby field. Like there are already preset configuration in many transactions, e.g. VA41 where you input or choose a value from search help for a ship-to and sold-to parties and then after clicking in other place or pressing 'Enter' - in the fields beside those field the detailed information comes up - like name / address/ postal code/ city

We need to replicate this action for custom fields.

Your suggestions how to do that are very very welcomed?

    You can use screen events like onLoad/onBeforeRefresh..

      Dear Sushant,

      the reason I asked this question is because I was wondering if someone has done this before and could give some example how to replicate this automatic appearance of details, because I'm stuck on this.

    Hi Diana,

    Here I have taken reference to transaction VA01, field order type.

    After entering Order type, it shows up the text.

    To do this, u have to design a text field next to it with the below field attributes.

    After designing the screen, then find a place in screen flow logic to fetch the text from its respective text table.
