Item Master Data Properties


On the item master form, there is a tab named 'Properties' that contains the properties which can be used for sorting and grouping items in reports.

Now, i would like to have these values (check boxes) displayed on my addon form.

I have managed to display these properties as checkboxes on my addon form, however, the check boxes are all unchecked even when they are actually checked for that particular item on the Item Master form.

Where can i read these values from?

Kind regards,

    maybe you did not use a datasource for your checkbox. when you load the form use the following code for each of your checkbox - than you should be able to select/check the box.

    oForm.DataSources.UserDataSources.Add("ckBox1", SAPbouiCOM.BoDataType.dt_SHORT_TEXT, 1);

    ((SAPbouiCOM.CheckBox)(oForm.Items.Item("ckBox1").Specific)).DataBind.SetBound(true, "", "ckBox1");


    in case you want to know how you get the Data from the Item Object via DIAPI:

    oItems.get_Properties(int GroupNum)

    • Hi,

      ok - you are using a matrix - the easist way is to fill the matrix with a datatable.

      but than you should create the datasource in another way.

      here's a sample for DataTable DataSource:

      oForm.DataSources.UserDataSources.Add("dsCheck", SAPbouiCOM.BoDataType.dt_SHORT_TEXT, 1);

      ((SAPbouiCOM.Matrix)(oForm.Items.Item("mtxUID").Specific)).Columns.Item("ColCheck").DataBind.SetBound(true, "", "dsCheck");


      oForm.DataSources.DataTables.Item("LIST").ExecuteQuery("SELECT Field FROM Table");

      ((SAPbouiCOM.Matrix)(oForm.Items.Item("mtxUID").Specific)).Columns.Item("ColCheck").DataBind.Bind("LIST", "Field");



      this will fill your matrix column with the field from the query - and it should work for your checkbox column.

      give it a try 😊

      lg David

    Thank you very much guys for your assistance.

    Edy, your hint saved me a bit of a headache - i was so focussed on finding an "ItemsProperties" field

    David, the solution i ended up with basically matches your code sample ;-)

    Again, thanks!
