Web Dynpro – Changing Dynamic Table Header

Home / SAP / ABAP Coding / Web Dynpro – Changing Dynamic Table Header

Well, this strangely was a lot tougher than I expected.  I just wanted the ability to change the column headers based on my own descriptions (or perhaps by language).  Dynamic table header changes took more research than I originally expected, so here’s what I found…  Hope if can help you…

*** get the reference to your table
l_table ?= view->get_element( ID = ‘TB_XXX’ ).
*** get all of the columns so you can name them as you like
lt_cols = l_table->get_columns( ).
LOOP AT lt_cols into wa_cols.
*** Get the text you want to add to the column headings and assign to lv_col_text
lv_col_fld = “column name”.
l_col_hdr = wa_cols->get_header( ).
l_col_hdr->set_text( lv_col_text ).
wa_cols->set_header( l_col_hdr ).
ENDLOOP.

Happy coding =)

    1. Hi Sirin,
      I would start by looking through more of my posts. I have quite a few different posts on ABAP Web Dynpro. If these aren’t what you are looking for I’d be happy to go into more details. If you could just expand on what isn’t clear. Thanks, Mike
