    By auto save do you mean that you want to commit the data to the database at certain intervals even if the user hasn't hit the save button? No there isn't anything the framework to do that and I've never seen an SAP applciation or transaction that acted that way. If you wanted to implement I suppose you could use the timedTrigger UI element to save at a certain interval in a custom application.

    • Hello Vinjay,

      Beware using the the timed trigger if the user is using text edit UI elements. (Which if you're worried about their session timing out, I'd imagine that they are).

      There have been multiple threads here (e.g and ) about the text that a user is entering in a text edit UI element not being available in the context until the user actively exits the element (and not available when triggered by a timed trigger event).

      I'm not sure if this behaviour is fixed so that the event of the timed trigger updates the user context - it may well have been in later support packs, but before you do a lot of development, it might be worth doing a quick mock-up to check.

    the other way will be to provide the SAVE button in ur UI on the screen. If the user presses u can commit the data to the database. u can write the relevant code , by using the OnAction property of the button UI . u can also trigger the popup asking the user whether he is is sure to save the entered data to the database.
