input history in sap gui

Hi,

How can I disable input history in sap GUI?

I tried control+right click to get the context menu enable/disable input history, but unfortunately I am not able to find the context menu on right click.

Is there a possibility of context menu not being enabled for a particular user, if yes, where I can check it? Or is it some version issue? I m using sap gui7.3.

I know the option to disable it in the data element. I want to know how to disable it for this particular screen. For ex: SE38->Program name field, I want to disable the I/p history.

    Hello Jaya

    You have the possibility to disable the history via the screen painter
    (Note 1099850).

    Best Regards,

    You need at least SAPGUI 640, patch 13.

    You could ask basis to build some script/reg file for mass update as this can be done in regedit: (same as manually done thru SAP GUI options, local data, history)

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (or HKEY_CURRENT_USER)
      SOFTWARE
        SAP
          SAPGUI Front
            SAP Frontend Server
              LocalData 
         (new) String name: Exception1 " , 2, 3, 4, etc.
               Contents   : STRUCTURE-FIELD " field name in dynpro

    Else there is a (less recommended by SAP?) Abap option with class-method CL_GUI_FRONTEND_SERVICES=>DISABLEHISTORYFORFIELD.

    Thanks for ur inputs...

    But my question is to disable I/p history for a field on a particular screen. I have read like cntrl+right click will give u a context menu where u can enable or disable the input history for the field on the screen. This context menu is not available for me. I am trying to find the reason for it. (If we goto se38, in the program name field usually have the I/p history. I want to disable it)

    I guess the setting u all r referring to is options->Local data->History OFF.

    If I turn the history OFF , it will not save I/n history for any fields rit?

    I want to know why the context menu->enable/disable is not available for me.

    As mentioned by Raymond , my version seems to be ok. Then is it around some authorization issue?

    • Jude,

      Isn't SAP GUI input history of fields User specific ? I think it is User specific.

      Does that mean Jaya has a scenario where a single User ID is being used by multiple Users ?
