Prompting users to save

Is there a way to implement an iView that can detect when a user has entered data into controls, and then navigates to another page without having saved the data by clicking the save button? Requirement is to stop the page navigation and prompt the user to save. I'm curious to know if any of the Java, BSP/ABAP, or .NET development tools could help in this regard. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Brian,

    this is (should be, didn't install it yet) a feature from EP6 SP3 on. You have to use the EPCF (within this, the so called work protect feature) to set the dirty-flag; with SP2, when the dirty flag has been set and the user wants to navigate, another window opened (so that the not saved data won't get lost). SAP had implemented your disired behaviour for it's own special cases, but from SP3 on, this should be a standard feature; also see https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sapportals.km.docs/documents/a1-8-4/enterprise portal client.pdf and http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/37/50fb5066f9db43b3b5d5fc8de0c051/content.htm.

    Hope it helps

    Hi Detlev,

    This is great news! We'll be upgrading to EP6 SP3 in early Q4, and I'll give this a try. Thank you for your help on this.

    Regards,

    Brian

    • Hi Brian,

      you're welcome... BUT - Your mother seems to have told you to say "thank you" (great education), but she forgot to add "and award points" 😉
