Reading context using method chaining in 7.02

29 Views

In 7.02, method chaining in ABAP is allowed, which means that we can write less code and use fewer temporary variables. In a web dynpro view method, is there a method for reading the contents of a context node into a structure using just one line of code? I tried this:

ls_old_material = wd_context->get_child_node( name = wd_this->wdctx_old_material )->get_static_attributes( )

This does not work because get_attributes() does not have a returning parameter.

So I have to do it this way:

lo_el_old_material = wd_context->get_child_node( name = wd_this->wdctx_old_material )->get_element( ).
lo_el_old_material->get_static_attributes( IMPORTING static_attributes = ls_old_material ).

Any tips on how to squeeze this into on line?

thanks!
