3. Write below code in WDDOINIT().

method WDDOINIT.

DATA lo_nd_vbak

TYPE REF TO if_wd_context_node.

data lv_no_of_records type i. “to count no of records in internal table

TYPES :

BEGIN OF type_vbak,
vbeln type vbak-vbeln,
erdat type vbak-erdat,
erzet type vbak-erzet,

checkbox(1) type c,

END OF type_vbak.

data lt_vbak type TABLE OF type_vbak.

* navigate from <CONTEXT> to <VBAK> via lead selection
lo_nd_vbak = wd_context->get_child_node( name = ‘VBAK’ ).

SELECT vbeln erdat erzet from vbak INTO CORRESPONDING FIELDS OF TABLE lt_vbak UP TO 18 ROWS.if sy-subrc = 0.
no_of_records = sy-dbcnt.
ENDIF.

lo_nd_vbak->bind_table( lt_vbak ).

DATA lo_el_context TYPE REF TO if_wd_context_element.
DATA ls_context TYPE wd_this->element_context.
* get element via lead selection
lo_el_context = wd_context->get_element(  ).
* get single attribute
CALL METHOD LO_EL_CONTEXT->SET_ATTRIBUTE
EXPORTING
VALUE  = lv_no_of_records
NAME   = ‘NO_OF_RECORDS’
.
endmethod.

4. Create Two buttons Page Up and Page Down and attach the Action method BUTTON_EVENT on action properties of these buttons.

5. Now write the below code in ONACTIONBUTTON_EVENT( ) as below.

method ONACTIONBUTTON_ACTION .

data element_id type string.CALL METHOD WDEVENT->GET_STRING
EXPORTING
NAME   = ‘ID’
RECEIVING
VALUE  = element_id.

DATA lo_el_context TYPE REF TO if_wd_context_element.
DATA ls_context TYPE wd_this->element_context.
DATA lv_page_no LIKE ls_context-page_no.
data lv_no_of_records LIKE ls_context-no_of_records.
* get element via lead selection
lo_el_context = wd_context->get_element(  ).
* get single attribute
lo_el_context->get_attribute(
EXPORTING
name =  `PAGE_NO`
IMPORTING
value = lv_page_no ).
* get single attribute
lo_el_context->get_attribute(
EXPORTING
name =  `NO_OF_RECORDS`
IMPORTING
value = lv_no_of_records ).

case element_id.

when ‘PAGE_UP’.
if lv_page_no <= 0.

exit.

else.

lv_page_no = lv_page_no – 5.

endif.

WHEN ‘PAGE_DOWN’.

if lv_page_no >= lv_no_of_records.
exit.

else.

lv_page_no = lv_page_no + 5 . “5 is default size of the table element
ENDIF.
ENDCASE.

CALL METHOD lo_el_context->set_attribute
EXPORTING
value  = lv_page_no
name   = ‘PAGE_NO’
.

endmethod.

6 . Now activate the webdynpro component and create the application for this webdynpro component and test it.
