quickinfo in ALV

Hi Everyone,

I have a small query Iam sure someone must have done it.

Is it possible to attach quickinfo in ALV list.

In my assignment I have to show the material description for a material number as quickinfo.

Please let me know which parameter we need to set in the fieldcatalog to get it.

Thanks and Regards

Varun

    I want to make sure I understand your request.

    You need a dynamic tooltip to show up? Its value will depend on the material number that the user is pointing to?

    If so, the techniques described so far will only give you a static tooltip for the entire column.

    Hi Varun,

    You can use tooltip attribute given in field catalog for which field you want Quick info. Specify value in this tool tip attribute then you can see Quick info for that column.

    I hope it will help you.

    Hi varun,

    Are you using Object-oriented approach for ALV display?

    I have tried it in object oriented approach of ALV.

    In this Tooltip attribute is given field catalog.

    Let me know the status.

    😊

    How about these ideas?

    You could right click on the material number and bring up a context menu with the material description in it. There is a limit on the text size but I do not remember what it is. If they select the description from the menu, it would have a function code assigned to it that would not do anything.

    You could set the material number as a hotspot and a click will bring up a popup window with the material description.

    You could put the material description just to the right of the material number. Set the field size to something small like 1 to 5 characters. Then when you put the mouse pointer on the text, a tooltip like line will appear displaying the whole text.

    You could make the material number field itself a combination of the number followed by the text. For example, the field might hold:

    1234567891234 - Big Pump for Big Trucks

    Set the display width so that only the material number can be seen. You might need to pad the material number on the right with blanks if they are not all the same length so that the text is always hidden. Then when the user points to the cell, the tooltip like line would appear showing the entire field.

    Any of these ideas help you?
