Event triggered when closing F4 search help


I have 3 input fields on my view and only the first is set to editable,so that the user can enter a value.Only after entering a valid value will the other 2 fields be made editable.

My problem is that i open the search help for the first input field and choose a value and press enter. I would like to know if there is any event that is triggered when choosing a value and closing the search help so that the other 2 input fileds will become editable automatically when i press the ok button in the search help.

I do not want to choose a value from my search help and then press enter one more time so that my fields will become editable and the event handler for my input field will be called.

thank you

    If you used OVS or a freely programmed search help you could fire a dummy action or even the actual action behind the onEnter event manually to force a roundtrip within that code without the event being called by the framework due to the user hitting "enter". This is the only idea I have. If you, however, use a DDIC search help, you won't have any code to hook on... InputFields only have the event onEnter 😕

    Let's hear other opinions though, maybe I'm mistaken.

    Cheers, Lukas

    To get your requirement done you must either use ONENTER action or change your search help to OVS help.

    When you use the OVS help an action is created which triggers the search help and inside the action you

    have four phases, where you can search your required values and in the final phase you can set the value

    of your 1st input field and also make the other fields editable.

    The link shows how you can use OVS help.
