    To prevent the user from selecting invalid lines, ABAP/4 offers several possibilities. At the end of the processing block END-OF-SELECTION, delete the contents of one or more fields you previously stored for valid lines using the HIDE statement. At the event AT LINE-SELECTION, check whether the work area is initial or whether the HIDE statement stored field contents there. After processing the secondary list, clear the work area again. This prevents the user from trying to create further secondary lists from the secondary list displayed.


    If the hidden information is not sufficient to uniquely identify the selected line, the command GET CURSOR is used. The GET CURSOR command returns the name of the field at the cursor position in a field specified after the addition field, and the value of the selected field in a field specified after value.

    You use the HIDE technique while creating a list level to store line-specific information for later use. To do so, use the HIDE statement as follows:

    HIDE or after the last output statement for the current line.

    As soon as the user selects a line for which you stored HIDE fields, the system fills the variables in the program with the values stored. A line can be selected

    · by an interactive event.

    For each interactive event, the HIDE fields of the line on which the cursor is positioned during the event are filled with the stored values.

    · by the READ LINE statement.

    You can think of the HIDE area as a table, in which the system stores the names and values of all HIDE fields for each list and line number. As soon as they are needed, the system reads the values from the table. The example below presents some of the essential features of interactive reporting. The basic list contains summarized information. By means of the HIDE technique, each detail list contains more details.
