search help in BSP? E.g. employee number etc.

Hello everyone,

Before i begin to develop that much, it is worth a question, cos not being able to find something in the docs. 😔

For things like htmlb:inputField, is it possible to get a standard search help when it is bound to data "types" like PERNR?

The help says that it only knows basic data type like INTEGER, STRING etc. and that the searchHelp attribute currently only(?) supports a calendar for type DATE (which i successfully implemented months ago).

I wonder if BSP is leaking such great features that even DynPro (at least those w/o the "Web" prefix, i don not kno) have :-).

Thank you,

    Hallo Timo,

    The only thing leaking at the moment is the NA2 in Hamburg port 😊 But you are right, BSP lacks such a F4-help feature. It is something that was always on the plan, but never made it to the door.

    Unfortunately, in this case you will have to roll your own, which means as much as saying "lots of development work". (I see here a small business idea:).

    It is true that CRM did implement such a feature, but it was done specifically for CRM and in their context. Maybe they have a few ideas for you.

    regards, brian

      Hello Brian,

      Doh! I was afraid of that 😊 I should become a freelancer for doing such F4 stuff though...

      Anyhow, thanks for your reply and your support in this forum at all, keep up the great work!

      Thanks and greetings,


      P.S. better to know it is not there than implementing it and finding out later, there was such a feature 😕
