We received some templates to try out in SAP Zen beta testing. The templates help as they already have pre-built components and tabs. During initial testing, I was following this tutorial religiously, but I couldn’t get my set filters to work. I was using what the tutorial showed in the properties of Events “on select”:
The filters would not work. Did I ask for help? Submit a ticket? No, I labored for hours on this. For sure, I thought I was missing something. Then I changed it to the following:
The setFilterExt was the trick. Success!

The steps I followed were to copy the templates to the templates directory, assign the BEx query as the datasource, set the properties on each of the dropdown boxes and then tested the run time. It was pretty fast, and the templates seem to really help the testing.
I encourage others who are doing SAP Zen beta testing to share their experiences.
