IMG modification


We have a requirement where we should display an additional attibute for all nodes of the SPRO screen.

This attribute should be picked from a cutom database table which will contain the node id and its attribute. Any pointers to how this can be acheived will be of great help. TIA

    Hello Hari,

    To be honest, this is the first time that I'm coming across a requirement like this. Never thought someone would try to tweak even the IMG !! 😊

    It is not very clear what you mean by <i>displaying an additional attribute</i>. Do you mean you want to have another icon for each node(just like the current one for documentation of the node) ? If yes, then I think we will have to dig deeper into the problem. For example, mapping the current nodes of the IMG tree to the attributes that want to display, which can be quite a bit of a task. Also you will have to get familiar with the STREEEXTERNAL Function Modules.

    Anyways, I assume that this operation is something that you would want to do only once. The texts for the IMG nodes are stored in the table TNODEIMGT. The other tables TNODEIMG and TNODEIMGR might also have to be considered.

    The values of the field TEXT for entries of the table TNODEIMGT would have to be modified to display your attributes as text, concatenated with the current text. However, this field is only 75 characters long. You will have to extend the length of this field with an SAP Modification. This, though not a very elegant solution, is probably easier to implement.

    Let us know how it goes...
