Reading class characteristic long texts

Hi,

is there a BAPI /RFC module which reads the long texts/descriptions of values from characteristics of classes?

In a little more detail - I can find the characteristics of a particular class by calling the BAPI_CLASS_GET_CHARACTERISTICS. The problem is that this module delivers the descriptions of the values (in the table CHAR_VALUES) only in the login language. If I connect (using JCo) using the language english, I get only the english translations of the values.

Is there a way through which I can get the descriptions in all languages? Which BAPI do I use for this?

The only BAPIs I found in relation to the descriptions are BAPI_CLASS_CHAR_VALUE_TEXT_DEL and BAPI_CLASS_CHAR_VALUE_TEXT_OVR. As they suggest, these are only for deletion or modifying. What is strange ist that there is no BAPI for only reading - atleast I couldn't find one.

Does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem?

    Hi,

    You BAPI_CLASS_GETDETAIL and BAPI_CHARACT_GETDETAIL for main informations,

    For long texts , you must use function 'READ_TEXT'

    Regards.

      Hi David,

      I think you misunderstood my question - BAPI_CHARACT_GETDETAIL is known to me, but it does not help me in this case. I need information about the characteristics which are directly under a class. During configuration, these characteristics are then modified by classes which define if, for e.g, a characteristic should be visible or not.

      Since I need the kind of information described above, I use the BAPI_CLASS_GET_CHARACTERISTICS to get the details of the characteristics. The problem is that the long texts of values of these characteristics are displayed only in the login language. I need to read the long texts in all available languages.

      Therefore, I was expecting to find BAPIs similar to BAPI_CLASS_CHAR_VALUE_TEXT_DEL through which I can read long texts / descriptions of the values in all languages, but I couldn't find any.

      Anyone else know of such a BAPI / RFC?

      P.S Read_Text is not remote enabled so in this case it is useless for me.

    There doesn't seem to be a straight forward way of doing this. A workaround has been currently implemented in our project which helps us for now.
