Well, after spending some actual working on my Web Dynpro application, I’ve already come across my first little challenge. In my selection screen, I have multiple tabs, each with a set of select-options. So this ran into my first extension of my skills…
So, it’s not rocket science, but why not share it, just in case it might be able to help you in your endeavors.
So, for more details, check out my other posts on Web Dynpro. They talk about using select-options, and how to setup the basics.
Building on this concept, I’m going to walk you through the process of adding multiple selection blocks.
First step, go back to the web dynpro component and add multiple component usages.
Now the biggest change is that we will use multiple views. We will setup one view for each tab (or each selection option). We will still do all of the same steps, however, the steps take place at a view that will dropped into the main view.
In my example, I have a view for selection screen that contains multiple tabs. I then have a view for each of the tabs. This allows me to use a separate component usage in each tab. This allows me to put different fields on each one and still keep the functionality I want.
Now, the last of the work happens again at the Window. Now, instead of just embedding the WDN_SELECTION_SCREEN, we will be embedding the single tab view into the ViewContainer, then the WDN_SELECTION_SCREEN inside of that view.
It’s actually pretty slick. I’m enjoying the flexiblity of Web Dynpro and what it lets me do. Now if I could just figure out how to get it working in Firefox & Safari. I have a feeling it has to do with the version of each of those browsers being relatively new. Either way, I’m still researching, and you can be sure when I figure it out, I’ll let you know…
of course, if you already know the answer, I don’t “need” to struggle… I’ll happily learn from your hard work. ha ha ha.
Thanks again for reading,
