Accessibility for icons in ALV Grid Cell

This tip will help you with development for handicap accessibility. Specifically,this tip show you how to force tooltip to appear in Web GUI.

It is a known fact that accessibility is a major issue these days. All our developments need to be accessible for

handicapped people.

Recently, I used ALV Grid in my development. I used Traffic Light Icons to display conformance with some parameters.

But to my surprise, the tooltip for these icons was missing in both sapgui and webgui.

However, there is one way by which you can force tooltip to appear in webgui. Here is the code:


include <icon>.
Data: g_icon_conform type iconname.

* Green Traffic Light Icon for Conformance
g_icon_conform = icon_green_light+0(3).
CONCATENATE g_icon_conform 'Q' text-cnf icon_green_light+3(1) into g_icon_conform.

Note: 
1) text-cnf is 'conform' in this case.

2) The id for Icon_green_light icon is '

 


 
-->


 
@', so we are forcing it to '@08QConform@'. 
This text 'Conform' will be displayed as tooltip whenever g_icon_conform
is assigned to some alv grid field.
