cProjects field enabling /displaying and adding new field


I am using cProjects 4.5, I need to add custom field in Basic data tab itself. How to do that? I had successfully added custom tab and few custom fields. But not able to add fields in project basic data tab. How to add that and how to change input field to display only field or hide in standard cprojects screen. I checked and implemented field control by copying 0SAP field control. Even then it is not working. Can anyone help me in this regard.

can we change specific field attributes (Display/Change) based on different roles?

    A pre-requisite is to populate customer include, like CI_DPR_PROJECT for project elements for instance.

    First, to update a custom field in Basic data tab, several steps have to be performed:

    - in SE80, select the webdynpro (for instance dpr_det_data_project_o), then the view (VI_DET_BAS_DPO).

    - switch to enhancement mode (spirale icon): create one if it's the first time

    - update the controller context with your custom fields (value + UI). You can inspire from the standard.

    - create your input field + label in the layout view. Bind them with your specific context attributes.

    - finally update your custom field control: add your field, with the corresponding display property.

    You can change the standard field behaviour as well. The only constraint is that you cannot reduce the authorizations. For instance, you cannot switch from "changeable with admin auth" to "write". The other way is possible.

    If you want to implement additional specific conditions, please check SAP Note 947936. Everything is explained here. You can code custom conditions based on what you want. These additional conditions are checked as well during output screen.
