    Hi Jyothi,

    Herewith I had Explained detailed Procedure,

    For Dropdown,

    1. Create a node and attribute to the dropdown ,

    2. call the bapi,

    3. Assign the Bapi attribute to the Dropdown node attribute

    4. Place the Interactive form UI to the Java Application

    5. Create an another attribute for read the interactive form

    a.Name: pdf_src

    b.Type :byte, Assign this attribute to PDF Source property of the Interactive form UI Element.

    6. Give the Name to the Template source property of the Interactive form UI and double click the template source.

    7. It asking Name for the Interactive form, Give the name for that

    8. Once give the Name, It ask context for Adobe form, assign the already created node for dropdown in Webdynpro application to the interactive form.

    9. Now Context Bounded with Webdynpro and Interactive form

    10. Interactive form screen will be open into the studio

    11. Place the Dropdown UI element to the Interactive form and bind the attribute to the dropdown

    12. Select the Dropdown UI Element, go to the object property, Click the Specify Item values. The pop window displayed, here give the $ value to the Item Text, Item value. The Data Connection dropdown and Default Binding , it has value when the attribute bounded to the dropdown UI .

    13. Save and Test the Application

    For Value Help,

    1. Do the Same Procedure for up to 10 steps,

    2. Place the Text field UI and Value Help UI Element

    3. Select the Value Help, go the Script Editor give the name of the text field attribute name in var fieldName = "*INSERT_NAME_HERE*";

    Hi Subhrajyoti kar,

    Were you able to get the value help to work with the instructions in this thread? I haven't started to work on it yet but wanted to get clarification if his solution is not specific to Web Dynpro ABAP and ZCI.

      Hey Dude,

      Try Using Valu Help from ISR Native Controls, I'm positive that you will see the script correctly.

      In the previous thread - you said

      1) In layout chose UI element 'Value Help Drop-down List' from WebDynpro Native Controls of Library Palette.

      Instead of choosing from WebDynpro, Choose from ISR Native Controls of Library Palette.

      Let us know if it works or not.
