    you may use the SAP internal statement IMPORT DYNPRO (not documented), but why do you need to know the position? (Maybe you just need something like GET CURSOR...)

    • That's fun that functional people still think that giving the technical name helps developers! It makes the specification unclear (I'd like to know how it can be validated by the client), and gives more work to developers.

      There's no easy solution. One is to view the list of elements of the dynpro. You may know its number by either placing the cursor on some field and press F1 then press button Technical information. Another one is slower, it consists to move the mouse cursor over the fields, and then the field name appears as a tooltip (that can be done using alt+F12 then SAPGUI scripting developer tools, and choose Perform a hit test on the window).
