Display key and text by WAD command in custom structure hierarchy

Hi everybody,

I have a query using a custom structure with hierarchy layout. As usual the structure does only display its text as descriptions but I can enable the display the key in BEx Web by right-click on the analysis item --> Properties --> Characteristic --> Display. Unfortunately these setting can not be defined directly in the structure within the Query Designer.

For a workaround I put the query into a web template, in which I used the Set Presentation (SET_PRESENTATION) command to enable key and text display from the start. Hence I put that command in the wem template parameters Action Before First Rendering (ACTION_BEFORE_FIRST_RENDERING). Everything is working properly and makes me very happy.

But... there is one thing missing, I would like to implement... I want a toggle button, which allows the user to switch between key and text display and text display. Unfortunately setting the same command from Action Before First Rendering (ACTION_BEFORE_FIRST_RENDERING on a various button does not working. The button command only affects data rows of the leaves of the structure hierarchy. All parent nodes do not change their appearance.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Thank you for any helps and comments!

    Hi Sebastian,

    I have a similar problem. Can you help me? How did you set the entry in Member Presentation of Command SET_PRESENTATION to display key and text? I just found the values to set the only text or only key.

    best regards,

    Hi, it is very easy, using that manual:

    You can find exact needed SET_PRESENTATION in the WAD template parameters under Operations before first view->commands for data provider->commands for characteristics:
