Making an existing row cell mandatory

We have a requirement to make an existing cell on each order row mandatory. i.e. if the cell is filled from a dropdown list this is not a problem. i.e. the list appear if the tab key is selectged whilst in the cell. However, the user can click the subsequent cell, hence bypassing the cell that we would like to have the mandatory entry.

Help!

    Earl,

    This is what I did,

    Let's say cell 1 is mandatory.

    I check for empty field in cell 1 when any cell in the row pVal.EventType = et_Got_Focus.

    If cell 1 is empty, I send the cursor to cell 1 using click method.

    Not the best solution but, it works fine for my case since, I have few columns in the matrix.

    Ibai solution is quite interesting, I would be glad if you could share your code.

    😊

    • OK. Here are some information about the mandatory field addon:

      - The addon is built for SBO2004A but does also run on SBO2005A (PL02).

      - Requires the .Net Framwork

      - It's locked on a company's system number (So yo have to send us that in order to get the addon)

      - The add-on currently support Danish and English but is ready for other translation if your up for it.

      For pricing please contact Mikael Boyum at +45 86159730 or on email mb@boyum-it.com (The price of the addon is around 500 Euro to my knowlegde)

      You can download the manual at http://www.boyum-it.com/addon.zip for more information (The zip-file also include information about 2 other add-ons so take a look)

      Any futher questions can be directed to rwj@boyum-it.com

    Hi,

    SAP doesn't make many fields mandatory. Otherwise SAP always suggest a default and when the user blanks this out, SAP replace the default.

    Maybe this is not the solution for your problem, it's rather another point of view.
