Hi community,

Yesterday i’ve found a nice way to show/hide fields dynamically in WebUI!!

The first idea that occurred to me was to create 2 different configurations, one with the field and the other without… Then go to method DO_CONFIG_DETERMINATION and select the correct configuration according to the logic that i wanted…

For me, this is not the right approach! WHY? imagine a requirement where we have 10 dynamic fields:

For 1 dynamic field, we need 2 configurations;

For 2 dynamic fields, we need 4 configurations;

I’ve tryed to find a new solution using different foruns and blogs but unsucessfully… and then i’ve found the light (:P)

My solution is based on the creation of a custom Switch and Business Function, and used them in the BSP application (using method GET_A to change the visibility). Please check the following example:

Go to transaction BSP_WD_CMPWB, open Component SRQM_INCIDENT_H and view IncidentHeaderEF.

Let’s assume that we want to show/hide field “status” (LCSTATUS) from context node BTADMINH.

Note: All the objects should be enhanced!

The objective is to hide field LCSTATUS:

Now i will describe the steps to hide the field:

  • Create Switch using SFW1:

  • Create Business Function using SFW2:

  • Create Business Function Set using SFW3:

  • Activate Business Function in SFW5
  • Go to SM30 and open CRMV_GIL_COMP_AT:

  • In this view, we will set the attributes from BOL Objects with a switch ID and visible or not (check on GENIL_MODEL_BROWSER):

  • Now the BOL attribute has a switch ID. Next step is to maintain the visibility in the view of the component. This should be done in method GET_A of the attribute (in this case LCSTATUS):

  • If we open the WebUI, the field status should be hidden:

IMPORTANT NOTE: this will not work for extensions in AET!!! the standard will not go through GET_A of the attribute.

The reason why is because the name of the attribute starts with “EXT.”…

To solve that a new method should be created in the class of the context node:

Hope this can solve some problems that both have in SAP CRM ????
