Note: You can change, display or delete a pattern from the same menu path as shown here.

      Mehmet, I would like to point out that your link requires a dot at the end of the URL:

      The idea is as simple as useful: For a pattern named Z_MY_PATTERN, a function module Z_MY_PATTERN_EDITOR_EXIT (i.e. with suffix _EDITOR_EXIT) will be called which can be used to query user input and generate code on base of this input.

      Here another example (generate class implementation from class definition), where I exploited the technique which I came to know from your Wiki:

      Kind regards,
