About this property or variable "~searchhelpdialogitemid.dim"

Hai ,

We are in the process of migrating from ITS 6.1 to ITS 6.2. In our ITS 6.1 file d_searchhelp.html is modified. A "If" condition is introduced in such a way that the search help will not show, "Search Catergory" & "Search Criteria" but will show "Search Result" only.

To achieve this the below if condition is used in the code,

if (~searchhelpdialogitemid.dim > 0)

<!-- Has code to show Search Category & Search Criteria -->

end;

Variable or property "~searchhelpdialogitemid.dim" returns value 0, as a result of which the if condition is not satisfied and Search Category & Search Criteria are not shown.

Whereas in ITS 6.2 property "searchhelpdialogitemid.dim" returns a value which is greater than zero. For example if, Search Criteria has three fields then "searchhelpdialogitemid.dim" returns 3.

I don't know why in ITS 6.2 it gives a value which is greater than zero.

Any information or idea to solve this issue.

Thank & Regards,

H.K.Hayath Basha.

    Hai,

    are you joking? The value of ~searchhelpdialogitemid.dim in 6.20 is exactly what we

    expect it to have. The array ~searchhelpdialogitemid seems to hold three values, isn't

    it?

    How to solve this issue? Depends on what you want to do. I would think about changing

    the search help definition with the DDIC tools.

    regards

    Tobias

    Hai,

    Function module "F4IF_INT_TABLE_VALUE_REQUEST" is used to show a search help. For this type of search help variable "~searchhelpdialogitemid.dim" has value "0" in ITS 6.1 and in ITS 6.2 same variable returns non-zero value(that is number of fields in search criteria).

    For search help coming from check table or matchcode varible "~searchhelpdialogitemid.dim" has non-zero value in ITS 6.1 & ITS 6.2.

    I think this may be a bug in ITS 6.1 and fixed in ITS 6.2.

    Regards,
