Select/unselect multiple rows in table without taking help of CTRL key

Scope: This document teaches you that how to select multiple rows in a table without taking help of CTRL key from key board. If you select the row which is already selected, that will be deselected.

steps to be followed:

1. Create a component

2. Create a node under the context of Component Controller like shown below


3. Map this node to your view.

4. Create a table UI element on view, maintain context mapping with above created node. please observe the below snap, which is inserted cell editor(LinkToAction) also while binding(Yellow marked).


5. Create an action for LinkToAction UI element on Table, which is going to use as multiple selector.(MULTI_SELECT)



6. Now come WDDOINIT method of View, and write the below code / Process your selection/model operations. And bind the value set to the table bound node(ND_TABLE).

    DATA lo_nd_nd_table TYPE REF TO if_wd_context_node.
  DATA lt_nd_table TYPE wd_this->elements_nd_table.

* navigate from <CONTEXT> to <ND_TABLE> via lead selection
  lo_nd_nd_table = wd_context->get_child_node( name = wd_this->wdctx_nd_table ).

    FROM zhr_resume_det

  lo_nd_nd_table->bind_table( new_items = lt_nd_table set_initial_elements = abap_true ).

7. Write the below code on MULTI_SELECT action.

    DATA lo_el_nd_table TYPE REF TO if_wd_context_element.

* get element via lead selection
  lo_el_nd_table = wdevent->get_context_element( name = ‘CONTEXT_ELEMENT’ ).

  IF lo_el_nd_table->is_selected( ) EQ abap_true.
    lo_el_nd_table->set_selected( flag = abap_false ).
    lo_el_nd_table->set_selected( flag = abap_true ).

8. Now create an application, test. (Click on the link to select/deselect).

  • Techies,

    Small Update on this Doc, in EHP5 onwards no need to create LinkToAction UI element, we can directly handle on event onLeadSelect
