Multiple selections for screen fields

Here's a tip if you use dialog programming and you want to use a multiple selection button for one of your screen field.

If you use dialog programming and want to use a multiple selection button for one of your screen field (just like...

if you where doing a "SELECT-OPTION: p_field FOR table-field" in a standard report), this tip is for you. The code was written in 4.6C and should work in earlier versions where this function exists.


- First crate a pushbutton in your screen and call it FCODE_RANGE. Set his attribute as "Output field". Also make sure it as a "Visible Length" of 17 (don't worry it will be automatically shorten during the process).

- Then we need to declare a GLOBAL variable of the same name of your pushbutton: DATA: fcode_range(20).

- We also need to declare a range to pass the data in the multiple selection screens (in this example a range for plants).
RANGES: werks_ran FOR komg-werks.

- Finally we create a form that will execute the COMPLEXE_SELECTIONS_DIALOG function.
FORM call_func_multiple_select.


  DATA: struc_tab_and_field TYPE rstabfield.

  struc_tab_and_field-fieldname = 'WERKS'.
  struc_tab_and_field-tablename = 'KOMG'.
  CALL FUNCTION 'COMPLEX_SELECTIONS_DIALOG'
