date in filter option of the sapui5 list report

Hi Experts,

I have created sapui5 list report using list report template, i have one field "As on Date" in the selection fields of the report. this fields is showing as Multiinput instead of Datepicker on the screen. I want to show that field in

- There is no annotation coming from backend system.

- filed is type date (Edm.DateTime) in the backend.

- in metdata file i have maintained sap:display-format="Date" property

-Metadata file:

<Property Name="Dmdt" Type="Edm.DateTime" Nullable="false" Precision="7" sap:label="As on date" sap:creatable="false" sap:updatable="false" sap:sortable="false" sap:display-format="Date"/>

I want to show field as Datepicker.

Please suggest way forward.

  • Hello Saurabh,

    I checked the smart filter bar code and it looks for display-format annotation. Can you share the snippet of the code to check further.

    Thanks and Regards,

    (In case anyone stumbles across this in the future)

    If this is the type of field you are looking for it can be achieved by adding an additional annotation via a redefinition of the DEFINE Method in the implementing class.

    DATA: lo_entity_type TYPE REF TO /iwbep/if_mgw_odata_entity_typ,
          lo_property    TYPE REF TO /iwbep/cl_mgw_odata_property,
          lo_annotation  TYPE REF TO /iwbep/if_mgw_odata_annotation.
    super->define( ).
    lo_entity_type = model->get_entity_type( iv_entity_name = 'ZSomeODataServiceType' ).
    lo_property ?= lo_entity_type->get_property( iv_property_name = 'SomeDateField' ).
    CALL METHOD lo_property->/iwbep/if_mgw_odata_annotatabl~create_annotation
        iv_annotation_namespace = /iwbep/if_mgw_med_odata_types=>gc_sap_namespace
        ro_annotation           = lo_annotation.
    lo_annotation->add( iv_key = 'filter-restriction' iv_value = 'interval' ).

    I'm with this very same problem. I created both annotations "display-format" and "filter-restriction" to my DateTime field and my smart filter does not change.

    Any solutions?

  • Hi,

    As Mark Castle mentioned, you can use filter restrictions. If you want to show a date picker instead of date range selection, use filter-restriction value as Single.

    Sample CDS annotation:

    Common.FilterExpressionRestrictions: [{ Property: <your Date Field>, AllowedExpressions: #SingleInterval } ]

    hope it helps.
