Hi everyone,

I am trying to get the properties of a button in a webdynpro by doing :

IWDButton button = (IWDButton)wdContext.getCurrentElement().getAttributeValue("Go_ctx");


I get a CastClassException.

Can someone help ?

    Hello David,

    "EP Content Development" is not really good place for questions regarding WD 😉

    Anyway, if you would like to access UI elements by name you need to implement this access in wdDoModifyView method. You have <i>IWDView view</i> as one of parameters.

    Use something like:

    <i>IWDButton okBtn = (IWDButton)view.getElement("btnOK");


    Cheers, Maxim R.
