Standard search help Behavior

Hello All ,

In one assignment block , for an field i am using the standard search help for licensee field .

Pop up is getting opened , as shown in the attachement . Search help getting opened is

'CU_BP_HEAD_SEARCH' .. Every thing is working fine .

Requirement is : "Search Criteria" is coming in LAZY mode as shown in the attachement . It opens only when we click on "Show Search Fields" .

I want this "Search Criteria" view to show always . Which parameters needs to be set OR how this can be achived .??

By default , without doing any thing , standard is behaving in the attached screen shot .

Thanks and Regards,

Nikhil Kulkarni

    Hi Nikhil,

    Please check BP_HEAD_SEARCH/SearchHelpWindow window of BP_HEAD_SEARCH component, in this window there is a inbound plug IP_AUTOCOMPLETE(), check the following line in this method

    lv_comp_controller->typed_context->ui->set_searchcollapsed( attribute_path = '' value = lv_abap_true ). (line no: 14)

    this line of code is hiding the search criteria.

    TO show the search criteria by default you can either enhance this window and redefine this method and add the following line at last

    lv_comp_controller->typed_context->ui->set_searchcollapsed( attribute_path = '' value = space ).


    you can also redefine the DO_PREPARE_OUTPUT of search help viewset or search help view and write the same line. you may need to take care the conditions in which this line should execute.

    I hope this would resolve your issue.
