I have report that contains a file selection dialog using the following code
at selection-screen on value-request for p_file. perform f_get_file using cl_gui_frontend_services=>filetype_excel.
form f_get_file using p_filetype type string. data: lt_filetable type filetable, ls_file type line of filetable, lv_filename type string, lv_path type string, lv_fullname type string, lv_title type string, lv_desktop type string, lv_rc type i, lv_action type i. call method cl_gui_frontend_services=>get_desktop_directory changing desktop_directory = lv_desktop exceptions cntl_error = 1 error_no_gui = 2 not_supported_by_gui = 3 others = 4. if sy-subrc <> 0. message e007(zspx) with 'Desktop not found'. endif. * Update View call method cl_gui_cfw=>update_view exceptions cntl_system_error = 1 cntl_error = 2 others = 3. lv_title = text-003. call method cl_gui_frontend_services=>file_open_dialog exporting window_title = lv_title file_filter = p_filetype initial_directory = lv_desktop changing file_table = lt_filetable rc = lv_rc user_action = lv_action exceptions file_open_dialog_failed = 1 cntl_error = 2 error_no_gui = 3 others = 4. if sy-subrc = 0 and lv_action ne cl_gui_frontend_services=>action_cancel. read table lt_filetable into ls_file index 1. if sy-subrc = 0. p_file = ls_file-filename. else. clear p_file. endif. else. clear p_file. endif. endform. " f_get_file
Currently while opening the dialog for file selection its showing the desktop directory. But user can select file from any other directory.
My question is how to restrict this dialog box from which user can select only from desktop directory.
PS : Please don't suggest to validate the file after getting the file that its from desktop or not
