Adding a Button for a field in a table

Hi there,

I don't know if it is possible, but I can't find any information of this. How can I make a field in a table searchable? That means I want to include a button besides this field in the table, so that user can click on the button to search for, eg to search for Material Number, using this button.

Anyone can help?

    Welcome to SDN Jackson!

    Exactly what is your requirement?

    Do you want to search within this table?

    Inb this case you need to you use [filter |about-table-display-functionalities] for the table.

    Do you want to search and fetch the material no from the backend table?

    In this case you need to use [OVS |about-table-display-functionalities] or even [EVS |about-table-display-functionalities]sometimes

    Regards,

    Siva

      Hey Guys!!

      Good news!! I found a website which is exactly what we need:

      /people/sheetal.gangele/blog/2008/02/08/object-value-selector-search-helps-step-by-step-using-a-web-service

      You should be able to follow this guide easily as it is quite straight forward compared to other which I have come across. 😊 After reading the article, this is what I gathered so far:

      1. Lots of previous articles do really teach about OVS implementation, however they could be for different model, eg: some might be applicable for Adaptive webservices while some are for RFC, entities etc. Therefore you need to find the right way of doing respective solutions.

      2. The reason why the labels is not showing is as stated by someone in this thread, that there is no framework, which is indeed really true. Because if you are using Web Service (Adaptive), the labels NEED to be manually set. 😊

      3. Lastly, I have changed my style of implementation by changing Model Node to Value Node when using OVS. In this way, you can set the fields and columns which you want to display if you could not use OVSConfigurator like me.

      Hope this helps!! However I am still having some problem with execution hopefull someone can help me in the other thread. THANKS GUYS! 😀

    Hi Jackson,

    I think the above solution filter provides you with a search help button (life f4 button in R3).

    More over you can try to bind a method with option EVENTS: onEnter , which can have search logic.

    Every time you will enter any thing into text field EVENT onEnter will be triggered.

    Regards,

    Hi Jackon,

    Your Requirement is...: button to search for, eg to search for Material Number, using this button.

    This can be done using the OVS. But there is a problem here. Before you selct the OVS help for an IF u will always have to lead select the Row where u need your OVS help, or else the value will always be set in the lead selected row.

    Say if u have 5 rows and ur lead selection is in the 2nd row.

    now you select OVS for the 3rd row, the value will be set for 2nd row... 😔

    So it is better to go for EVS if u know all the material numbers. With EVS u wont face the above problem.

    Regards,

    Jithin
