ABAP code example for Function Module HELP_VALUES_GET





The ABAP code below is a full code listing to execute function module HELP_VALUES_GET including all data declarations. The code uses the latest in-line data DECLARATION SYNTAX but I have included an ABAP code snippet at the end to show how declarations would look using the original method of declaring data variables up front. This will allow you to compare and fully understand the new inline method. Please note some of the newer syntax such as the @DATA is not available until a later 4.70 service pack (SP8).

DATA:
ld_select_value  TYPE STRING ,
ld_select_index  TYPE SY-TABIX .

DATA(ld_display) = 'some text here'.
DATA(ld_display) = 'some text here'.

DATA(ld_fieldname) = some text here

DATA(ld_input_value) = some text here

DATA(ld_tabname) = some text here

DATA(ld_tabname) = some text here
DATA(ld_show_all_values_at_first_time) = 'some text here'. . CALL FUNCTION 'HELP_VALUES_GET' EXPORTING * display = ld_display * display = ld_display fieldname = ld_fieldname * input_value = ld_input_value tabname = ld_tabname tabname = ld_tabname * show_all_values_at_first_time = ld_show_all_values_at_first_time IMPORTING select_value = ld_select_value select_index = ld_select_index EXCEPTIONS NO_HELP_FOR_FIELD = 1 .

ABAP code to compare 7.40 inline data declaration with original syntax

The below ABAP code uses the older none in-line data declarations. This allows you to see the coding differences/benefits of the later inline syntax. It may also be useful if you are using an older version of SAP as some of the newer syntax above, such as the @DATA is not available until 4.70 EHP 8.

DATA:
ld_select_value  TYPE STRING ,
ld_display  TYPE STRING ,
ld_display  TYPE STRING ,
ld_select_index  TYPE SY-TABIX ,
ld_fieldname  TYPE HELP_INFO-FIELDNAME ,
ld_input_value  TYPE HELP_INFO-FLDVALUE ,
ld_tabname  TYPE HELP_INFO-TABNAME ,
ld_tabname  TYPE HELP_INFO-TABNAME ,
ld_show_all_values_at_first_time  TYPE STRING .

ld_display = 'some text here'.
ld_display = 'some text here'.

ld_fieldname = some text here

ld_input_value = some text here

ld_tabname = some text here

ld_tabname = some text here
ld_show_all_values_at_first_time = 'some text here'.
