Module Pool

Hi,

In my Module Pool program am creating a text field in my screen. Its length is 40 Char.

Here I want my visual length of that text field as 10 Char but I must be able to enter till 40 CharactersÂ’. Example: In SE38, the visible length to enter Program name is 30 but we can enter more than 30 Characters in that space as the letters will be scrolling. In the same way my letters must also scroll till I enter 40th Character.

In the Screen Painter attributes the Visual length (Vis.Length) is gray out, but if we change the Defined Length (Def.Lengt) the changes are reflected on the Visual Length. In this case I can enter the characters till the visible length only.

Is there any other way to handle this?

Regards,

Adithya M

    Hi,

    You must check the "Scrollable" checkbox option in your field's attributes. Doing this will enable you to enter a larger value in the Vis.Length property than you have in the Def.Length property. Scolling will then be enabled.
