Display of F4 help button on the standard selection screen

Hi ,

I have coded for few parameters to appear on my standard selection screen. And they all are of type refering to a Data dictionary structure and for all the fields i have created a explicit search help object and attached to them. Some have foreign key relationships and i have given corresponding value table in the domain also.

Now my understanding is that when i exectue the report prog on all these parameter fields i should get the search helps and button at the end showing it has a f4 help attached to it.

However, no button appears which shows there is a search help attached, however on f4 my search help comes up and it works fine.

My understanding was that the button was to come to any field which has a f4 help avaiable for it..

But the button is not coming up now.. Is there any customizing code to be written in my report prog for the button to appear...

Any info would be helpful...

Thanks in Advance..

Regards,

Naveen M

    Hi Naveen ,

    What u have to do is while u attach the search help to the fileds in the structure just when u goto text elements and define the name of the field there is a check box against it just click that check box and u will get what u want .

    Thanks

    • Hello Aditya,

      Thanks a lot.. but u know wat at times i think ABAP editor give some bizarre problems.. I did the modification

      parameters: p_abc type <any type > MATCHCODE OBJECT <search help name>

      and the button popped up...

      i deleted the addition of matchcode object addition and activated my code.. and the buttons now come up without that addition.

      As i told before has to come up when the field has search help attached to it.. no modifications actually need to be done i guess.. but somehow it was not comin at first...

      Anyway Thanks a lot,

      Good day..
