BRFplus: Conversion Exits in Elements ?

Hi all,

I have created a custom DDIC Domain with a conversion exit (that is, with FMs CONVERSION_EXIT_xxxxx_INPUT and CONVERSION_EXIT_xxxxx_OUTPUT). The idea is to define a single duration field that will hold days, hours and minutes. Internally it is defined as type NUMC; externally it may be entered and displayed as format "DDD HH:MM". This works fine when used as a parameter on the selection screen of an ABAP program.

In BRFplus I have created an Element that is bound to this DDIC Element. However BRFplus seems to treat it as just plain text without a conversion exit - no formatting of the value takes place.

Also, it is not recognising the Output Length of the DDIC Domain - only allowing character entry up to the internal length.

Can anyone advise whether BRFplus (NW 701) supports conversion exits on an Element ? If yes, then what else do I need to try to get it to work ??

Thanks & regards,

    Hi Grogan,

    Conversion exits are not supported in NW701 and also in later releases there are still some limitations.
