Issue with SAP GUI HTML


i have a problem with SAP GUI HTML:

i have a z-report with a dynpro where i use dropdown-fields. i am filling dropdown list with FM VRM_SET_VALUES.

when opening the dropdown with "normal" windows sap gui it looks like this. Key values on the left side, description on the right side (splitted by "|")

when opening the dropdown with sap gui html (sap_corbu style) it looks awful like this: depending on the lenght of the key values, the description is concatenated just after the key value. this is looking awful !

does anybody have an idea why this is displayed this way ? is it a "bug" in sap gui html ? can i avoid it ?

    Hi Martin,

    Is the first "column" in the dropdown list the "key" value?

    If yes, then there is a specific parameter to be set in the GUI Configuration of the WEBGUI service: ~webgui_combobox_with_keys = 1.

    Please visit the ITS community for SAPGUI for HTML questions.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards,
