want to add FREE text in the user FORM blank area

Hi all,

I would like to do some changes in portal. when you call for logon portal thru.. http://hostname:instance, and you get prompted to enter user and pass..

As you know, the user field always blank when you enter a user or pass. I want that field to have my own text in it and when a user click on the user blank box to enter user name, it goes away.

For example, dice.com... see how it say " Enter keywords (sill, job title)" and when you click, it goes away.

Can someone please help me how to have that extra/free text added to my portal. This is a requirement for this project.

I appreciate your help.

Thanks,

    Hi Afnan,

    To be frank even i am new to this concept.

    I found some more useful links also:

    1. Sample code example : http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw2004s/helpdata/en/5d/08f43cf1da7646a2b210a16321c669/frameset.htm

    2. EPCF configuration:

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/17/14b140c6ecee0fe10000000a1550b0/frameset.htm

    (i think u need to do this)

    3. EPCF:

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/79/3857422d095542e10000000a1550b0/frameset.htm

    4. Firing events:

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04s/helpdata/en/d3/3857422d095542e10000000a1550b0/frameset.htm

    Please go through all these links.

    I have just summarized whatever i have found from other forum threads:

    1. U can write EPCF code using javascript.

    2. There is a tutorial which comes along with portal development kit.You can download PDK from SDN and configure it in your portal.

    PDK will contain one .epa file

    Please import this epa file from System administration-->Import

    After you import ,you will have a java development role.

    Assign this role to ur user id.

    This java development role contains many examples and tutorials.

    I suggest u to post one thread with the heading EPCF eventing.It might help u to get some EPCF experts help.

    Regards,

    Nithya

    It was a good source. I'm kinda new in this and never did coding. This is my first time doing this kinda stuff. As I was going through your 2nd link >>http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw2004s/helpdata/en/53/9d0e41a346ef6fe10000000a1550b0/frameset.htm

    Is that mean, on that link very boton on the example, If I copy and paste the exmple, it is gonna show up in user name some text?

    If I'm not right, can you please take me thru.. little more steps.

    I appreciate your help.
