Get selected function in a context menu with cl_gui_alv_grid


I'm trying to implement a context menu on a alv grid. I defined and implemented a method for the event CONTEXT_MENU_REQUEST to add function codes to context menu. It works ok.

The problem is retrieving the function selected in context menu. I tried to define in the class definition a method for event CONTEXT_MENU_SELECTED (that seems to be the event to use) but i can't implement it because is defined as protected event in CL_GUI_ALV_GRID.

How i can implement a method to catch this event and determine te function code defined in the context menu??

    Hello Alfredo

    The context menu function is handled by the event USER_COMMAND of CL_GUI_ALV_GRID.

      Hi there

      Thanks for the tip

      I've used this as well

      In my toolbar i now have

      move 0 to ls_toolbar-butn_type.
          move 'TEST' to ls_toolbar-function.
          move space to ls_toolbar-disabled.
          move icon_execute_object to ls_toolbar-icon.
           move 'Get Cell' to ls_toolbar-quickinfo.
           move  'CELL' to ls_toolbar-text.
          append ls_toolbar to e_object->mt_toolbar.
          clear ls_toolbar.

      In the on_user_command

       when 'TEST'.
              call method me->get_cell.

      In my get_cell method

      method get_cell.
      break-point 1.
      call method grid1->get_current_cell
      e_row     = ls_row
      e_value   = ls_value
      e_col     = ls_col
      es_row_id = ls_row_id
      es_col_id = ls_col_id
      es_row_no = ls_row_no.
      * pass back parameters to a routine in the calling program
      perform handle_cell in program (caller)  if found
       * ====> parmeters from the method 

      I can then do whatever I want with the data .

      What I usually do here is to add the following code to my calling application

      Form handle_cell 
          using   parameters from method
      do whatever the application needs

      This will also work if I select multiple rows / columns / both (using a similar method).

      In my ALV handling class I usually make the calling program a parmeter as it's often IMO easier to retrieve the data via the method and then process it in the application program -- makes the class more generic as well.

      In my application program the current Grid table is alwys available as a dynamic table <dyn_table> so I can use / manipulate the data directly if required.

      Thanks for your tip of using the ON User Command for handling cell selection.
