Custom F4 help using CL_SALV_TABLE class

Hi experts,

I am displaying a report using the CL_SALV_TABLE class. I need to display the F4 search help for all the output fields.

I am using the SET_F4 and SE_DDIC_REFERENCE for the standard fields and its working correctly. See code below:

I am appending all the fields that require F4 help into GT_f4 table as there are >50 fields in the output.

LOOP AT gt_f4 INTO gs_f4.

gr_ddic-field = gs_f4-fname.

gr_ddic-table = gs_f4-tname.


gr_column ?= gr_columns->get_column( gr_ddic-field ).

gr_column->set_ddic_reference( gr_ddic ).

gr_column->set_f4( if_salv_c_bool_sap=>true ).

CATCH cx_salv_not_found.


CLEAR gs_f4.


But for the payment terms KNB1-ZTERM, as there is no standard serch help, I am not able to display the same in the ALV. Can anyone let me know how I can achieve this custom F4?

    It looks like it is not possible with the SALV.

    But if you use the ALV Grid, you can method REGISTER_F4_FOR_FIELDS to register the behavior of the F4 help. You need to set the Register for the field:

    data: lt_f4 type LVC_t_F4,
          lwa_f4 like line of lt_f4.
    lwa_f4-FIELDNAME = 'ZTERM'.
    lwa_f4-REGISTER = 'X'.

    Set the event handler for the event ONF4. Inside the event handler method you should call the FM FI_F4_ZTERM. You should also set the to let the ALV framework know that you had already handled the F4 on your own.

    method handle_on_F4.
    *  ... call FM

    Here is one of the workaround to get the ALV grid object from the SALV. Do read the comments as well...
