Could not find attribute LANGU

I have a webdynpro ABAP screen that is displaying the fields on infotype 0022.

But when I try to click on the dropdown for field SLART, I get the error "could not find attribute LANGU".

Within SAP GUI and accessing the infotype 0022 via PA20/PA30, the dropdown of course works fine. The Entry Help is trying to access check table T517T - Educational Establishment Type Designations, to display on the dropdown.

It appears that the webynpro app does not know what LANGU in order to perform the dropdown for SLART.

Anybody come across something like this?

    Check if the structure you are using for your screen/context has explicit links to which fields should be used to provide the search help's input fields.

    You may need to create your own structure - or ensure that you populate the field your context that maps to the field referenced in the structure's search help definition.

    It is strange that it is looking for the attribute "LANGU" as the search help is dependent on the T517T SPRSL field - definately check the structure you are using in your context!

      Got around this problem by creating my own search help instead of the standard SAP search help that were automatically being called for SLART. In the context, I pointed to my custom search help which defaults to "EN" when performing the search.

      There is probably many other ways to resolve this issue and my solution might not be the best, but it works for now.
