Last Friday we had the SAP Code Jam event “ABAP on HANA” here in Munich. It took place in combination with the SAP Inside Track event on Saturday.
Restrict search for ABAP development objects to object-type
You can use the “Run ABAP application” (shortcut Alt + F8) or “Open ABAP development object” (shortcut Ctrl + Shift + A) functions for searching purpose.
Maybe you just want to search for a specific type of object, maybe a program, transaction, class, and so on…
If no object-type is specified your result list contains all kind of objects – often the max. result count of 50 items is reached and you possibly may not find the object you’re searching for.
But there is a solution for that issue which I did not know.
Just type “type” behind your search term and use Ctrl + space (code completion) and you will receive a list of possible object-types (all ABAP repository object types available):
By starting tipping the list gets closer (Eclipse standard feature) and helps you to find your desired object-type faster. So finally you just have to select the object you had searched for.
