Problem with ALV search help Dictionary Search Help

Hello experts

I have a problem with ALV search help.

I use DDIC table ZXXX with text table ZXXX_T. I created DDIC search help form table ZXXX. In my WD application, in context on COMPONENTCONTROLLER i set on attribute: 'Input help mode' as 'Dictionary Search Help' and in 'Dictionary Search Help' I pass name of new created DDIC search help.

I create a input field from that atrribute and search help works fine (there was a value and description for value from text table). So I created ALV witch contains that attribute too.

Next I set column for this attribute in ALV as editable but on Serch help for this collumn I have only value. I DON'T HAVE TEXT DESCRIPTION FOR VALUE.

Please help me and tell me what I do wrong?

Miko

    Hi Miko,

    check out the properties of the ALV structure. 1 of these fields you can enter the search help you created. This way it will work.

    Regards,

    Why don't you assign your DDic Search Help to the Z-table in the Data Dictionary. That way you don't have to override the search help assignment at the context level and the ALV is more likely to pull this in as well.

      Hello,

      Thank's for your help. I create DDic Search help for all fields from my ALV. Next I changed 'TYPE' for all ALV fields in COMPONENTCONTROLLER from ZXXX-Zfield to Zfield, and I changed 'Input help mode' from 'Automatic' to 'Dictionary Search Help'. Now I see Value and Description for value in Search Help in my ALV.

      Regards
