Unable to select newly changed drop down value.

Hi Experts,

I want to use custom drop down instead of using F4 help. For this I am using script applied on onSelect event of drop down. I am copying the selected value from drop down and pasting it to standard F4 help input field. But every time I select value from drop down it gives me the previously selected value instead of new one.

I am using SAP Screen Personas 3.0 with SP04.

Help me out if anyone knows the solution.

Thanks in advance.

    when using the "onSelect event" you can get the new value with "newKey".

    var thisismynewkey = newKey;  'save newKey in variable
    session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/cmbPersonas_150520833899797").key = newKey; 'set newKey in your Dropdown

    • Hi Parul,

      I think this is a bug in SP04 in the "onSelect Event". The Screen doesn't refresh after the event is fired.

      Try it like this.

      //save newKey in variable coming from dropdown
      var thisismynewkey = newKey;
      // set newKey in Dropdown
      session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/cmbPersonas_151124865221376").key = newKey;
      // Screen Refresh
      //save text in variable coming from Dropdown (Not necessary, it's the same than "thisismynewkey")
      var text = session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/cmbPersonas_151124865221376").text;
      //set text to standard F4 help field
      session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/ctxtSTC_SCN_HDR-SCENARIO_ID").text = text;
