SAP Cloud SDK : Display activity Note in the PDF form in table cell

Hi Experts,

I have requirement of display activity notes containing more than 255 characters in the PDF print form in table cell.

Here is my CustomOB.


businessobject CustomOB


[DependentObject(TextCollection)] node TxtNote;

node ClosedActivity [0,n]{

[Transient] element ClosedActivityCB: Indicator;

[Transient] element TransactionID : LANGUAGEINDEPENDENT_MEDIUM_Name;

[Transient] element Description : LANGUAGEINDEPENDENT_EXTENDED_Text;

[Transient] element ActivityType : LANGUAGEINDEPENDENT_EXTENDED_Text;

[Transient] element Status : LANGUAGEINDEPENDENT_EXTENDED_Text;

[Transient] element Note : LANGUAGEINDEPENDENT_EXTENDED_Text;


In an action script I retrieved closed activity details, like below script,

var CompActQry = Activity.QueryByElements;

var CompActSel = CompActQry.CreateSelectionParams(); CompActSel.Add(CompActQry.PartyID,"I","EQ",this.CustomerID); CompActSel.Add(CompActQry.LifeCycleStatusCode,"I","EQ","3");

var CompActRes = CompActQry.Execute(CompActSel);

var CAChild : elementsof CustomeFacet.ClosedActivity;

foreach (var CA in CompActRes)


CAChild.TransactionID = CA.ID.RemoveLeadingZeros();

CAChild.Description = CA.SubjectName;

CAChild.ActivityType = CA.TypeCode.GetDescription();

CAChild.Status = CA.LifeCycleStatusCode.GetDescription();

CAChild.Note = CA.Note;


But CAChild.Note only can contain 255 characters. As I declared LANGUAGEINDEPENDENT_EXTENDED_Text;

I mapped the Note to print form to print note on PDF.

How can I declered "element Note" that I can print more than 255 charaters.

How can I use textCollection 'TxtNote'? Should I declare element Note as TxtNote?

My output PDF will be like below, All activity notes should be print in complete content.

Pls Help me ASAP.

Thanks and Regards

Swati Goswami.

    Hi Swati,

    Try FormattedText data type, it can have more characters.

    It says it can only contain 255 characters, but have you tried? Some screen fields we've seen or added, if memory serves, can take far more. You might have some luck with that or other text data types by testing to see if it actually limits you.

    • Swami,

      Try just the type 'Text' --- according to the repository explorer, 'An upper limit for the number of characters that a "Text" can contain is not defined.' If you can use that, great; if not, then I think you're out of luck.
