Programming exits in the web interface for locking

Hi All,

Let me not discuss the locking problems again !

Can we make use of programming for the workaround ?

In the Web Interface ,

a) If the layoput is locked, then display layout as read-only

b) Show some good error message with name of person who has locked the layout

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Subir,

    One option to dosplay system messages would be to insert a message component in the layout using bps_wb.

    The above approach would show which user is locking the layout. However the downside to it is that all system messages for any function carried out on that page will be displayed to the user, such as which function was carried out, number of records read/changed/generated etc.

    Hi Subir,

    <i>a) If the layoput is locked, then display layout as read-only</i>

    would suggest creating an output layout/BEx report for viewing data and attach it to the Planning folder of the user so that he/she could still view the data if the input layout is being used by another user.

    not sure about (b)

    Hope it helps

    Hi,

    We are using the message tray. How do we customize the message there ?

    Currently it show "Planning area XYZ locked by user".

    We are not using the planning folders. By trapping the error can I redirect it to read-only web interface ?

    Thanks
