Grid commonsetting GetAsXML and UpdateFromXML in 9.2 - how to use it

Hello experts,

Anyone know how to use those two new grid methods(CommonSetting.UpdateFromXML, CommonSetting.GetAsXML) in 9.2 to speed up grid performance?

GetAsXML takes parameter "xmlQuery" - how this xml looks like?

This is the official information from what's new :

Performance has been improved for:

Changing settings of multiple rows and cells in Grid/Matrix. In UI API, the CommonSetting object now provides two new XML based methods, CommonSetting.UpdateFromXML and CommonSetting.GetAsXML, for batch operations.

Loading data in grids with data tables.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Przemyslaw,

    Perhaps you should open a ticket at SAP because there is absolutely no documentation about that argument. Actually there is no documentation besides the statement you posted.

    SAP is faltering when it comes to properly document the API's. How are developers supposed to use their API's if there is zero documentation?
