Hierarchy variable Key and Text in Textbox

Hallo colleagues,

By one customer I get the problem to get Key and Text of one variable which is set in prompt (selection) window (jpg: selection). This variable is planing element 93400 Energy.

After I do a selection, I get only the key 93400 in textbox, but not the text "Energy".

Script in DS_1 in field "OnResultSet":


The query definition (filter part) is in screen "QD_Filter"

In Screen "Result DS" is the result after I click on Ok in selection window of Design Studio.

How can I get key and text of that variable into textbox?

Thank you.

Result in DS.JPG (10.5 kB)
QD_Filter.JPG (54.6 kB)
Selection.JPG (45.2 kB)

    Hi Tatiana,

    Please try the following code:

    TEXT_1.setText(DS_1.getVariableValueText("ZPV_ZPLANEL_001") + " " + DS_1.getVariableValueExt("ZPV_ZPLANEL_001"));

      here is the detail of my characteristic definition, display tab (sorry, I work in german system):

      In the field "Text View" I can only select "short text" and "middle text". I tried both selections and unfortunatelly for both it doesn't work with get VariableValueText/Ext. Actually it works, but I get 93400 twice:

      short text:

      middle text:


      However, it works with getStaticFilterText.

      Best regards and thank you for your help again, Tatiana
