Hi Folks,

I am getting the following information message when the the element SCREENS is double clicked in the SE80's container.

Element %_R1_%_APP_%-TEXT touches or overlaps

other element

The program is running fine without any error.I want to know why such an info message is getting popped up and how to avoid that.

    I think you can disable that info message with this.

    Goto SE80, there press <Alt> + F12 and there select "Options".

    In the dialog box that appears Select "Options" tab.

    There UNCHECK the checkbox "Enable Dialog Box for Dynpro Size Check".

    If this does not help open the Selection-Screen in SE51 and check this SCREEN Element.

    IF possible reduce the size of this Element in the selection-screen by modifying the SELECTION-SCREEN COMMENT statement relevent for this element.

    • Hi,

      Open the Selection scree in SE51, double click on 1000 screen in SE80 and then click on the layout button to open the screen.

      Then there check out the screen element for which you are getting the error.

      Then adjust its size and check if this error is still coming.

      According to me this Screen element corresponds to SELECTION-SCREEN COMMENT statement in the program, you might have given the length of this text there try and reduce the length there and see if this error still remains.

      Generally we should not modify the Selection-Screen's in SE51 as they will always get regenerated when ever you activate the program and your changes will be over written.

      So try to play around with SELECTION-SCREEN statements only in the program, what you can get from SE51 is what this SCREEN ELEMENT corresponds to in the program.
