    which method are you using to display error message? User report_attribute_error_message method of message manager so that it will display error message as well highlight the error field.

    CALL METHOD lo_message_manager->report_attribute_error_message


    message_text = 'Your message'

    element = lo_el_ele " context element

    attribute_name = 'ATTR'. " attribute name

    • Hi John,

      You can set the focus at any time by reading a reference to the current view controller and calling method IF_WD_VIEW_CONTROLLER->REQUEST_FOCUS, however if you're setting focus as a component of issuing an error message then the approach Kiran mentions is more standard and does work for any editable field:

      * -- Get a message manager objectDATA lo_message_manager TYPE REF TO if_wd_message_manager.lo_api_controller ?= wd_this->wd_get_api( ).CALL METHOD lo_api_controller->get_message_manager    RECEIVING        message_manager = lo_message_manager.* -- Get the context element corresponding to the row of the tableDATA lo_nd_flight_tab TYPE REF TO if_wd_context_node.DATA lo_el_flight_tab TYPE REF TO if_wd_context_element.lo_nd_flight_tab = wd_context->get_child_node( name = wd_this->wdctx_flight_tab ).lo_el_flight_tab = lo_nd_flight_tab->get_element( index = 3 ). " just an example* -- Issue an error message for an attribute of this context elementCALL METHOD lo_message_manager->report_attribute_error_message    EXPORTING        message_text   = 'This field has an error'        element            = lo_el_flight_tab        attribute_name = 'CARRID'.

    You can make the field that the user need to enter the value as 'Required'.

    please the sample example:

    Implement the below logic/code in "WDDOBEFOREACTION"

    DATA lo_api_controller TYPE REF TO if_wd_view_controller.
    DATA lo_action TYPE REF TO if_wd_action.
    DATA l_view_controller TYPE REF TO if_wd_view_controller .
    lo_api_controller = wd_this->wd_get_api( ).
    lo_action = lo_api_controller->get_current_action( ).

    IF lo_action IS BOUND.
    CASE lo_action->name.
    WHEN 'SUBMIT'. "(Provide your action name"

    l_view_controller = wd_this->wd_get_api( ) .

    EXPORTING view_controller = l_view_controller
    display_messages = abap_true
    ) .
