OO ALV: GET_SELECTED_ROWS is inconsistent.

Hi experts,

I'm using the method get_selected_rows for my OO ALV.

It's under the user command module.

I don't know why but sometimes it populates the return table but sometimes it doesn't.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

Really appreciate your inputs.

      Hi all,

      I call back this old thread, because I tried every suggestion in this, but nothing helps.

      I created 2 Dynpros. The first gives an overview, the second shows the details. If I select one or more rows after first display of the overview everything is fine. But if I go back from the detail screen to the overview screen and select any other row, method doesn`t recognize it.

      r_cont type ref to cl_gui_custom_container,

      r_alv type ref to cl_salv_table,


      r_select TYPE REF TO cl_salv_selections,


      it_getsel TYPE salv_t_row



      r_alv->get_metadata( ).

      it_getsel = r_select->get_selected_rows( ).

      CLEAR: r_alv, r_cont.

      CALL SCREEN 0101.

      Anyone - who knows a solution?

    Try to use method refresh_table_display after your get_selected_rows..

    This happens because you are not clearing the custom container.

    Do you have this check??

      if g_custom_container is initial.  

    Check the same, if the check is not there, then set it up, then the method will always return values.
