Fiori F4 help display attribute fields


I have implemented F4 help in my List report using annotation @Consumption.valueHelpDefinition in CDS view. F4 help has three additional columns(like attributes of the key). Now when I select a field from F4 help, it should update other attribute fields on the screen when key field is selected. e.g. On screen, I have a company code and Name field. When I use F4 on Company Code field, pop up screen display Company code and Name. Now on the selection of company code, the Name field should be populated in the Name field on the screen.

How we can implement this. Thank you.

  • The key field like Company Code can display the Name in the same F4 with the help of the TextArrangement Annotation(TextArrangement). The selected key property from the F4 will be added to the search query for the Table and the Name will be displayed in the same filter field based on the TextArrangement.

    And for passing a selected value from one F4 to another Filter fields F4 can be configured by the ValueList Annotation.

    I am using CDS view and Fiori List Report. On-screen I have two input fields. The second field is a description of the value in the first field. Once we use F4, the text should get populated in the second field. Now, F4 pop up displays key and text, but on selection, it does not populate the second field with description. And this is not for just description, but I have more fields which are treated as a attributes of key fields.
