1) How to ENABLE / DISABLE the Buttons in the POWL Table


In the POWL Level , If we want a BUTTON to be ENABLED by default on Launch of the POWL in Screen

Changes to Do in SPRO

2 ) If we select the Cardinality as the At Least One object as to be selected then Button Will be enabled on Lead selection of any record in table.

But In case of Enabling / Disabling the Button based on any condition on Lead Selected record,

We have to customize the code in the method ENABLE_BUTTONS of the FEEDER Class of the POWL TYPE

Possibilities that can be done for an button in the SPRO level for an POWL TYPE are as mentioned below

/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/6_848870.jpg

1) We can change the text for the BUTTON in the ACTION TEXT

2) Tooltip will be maintained for the additional Info

3) Cardinality helps the button to be Enabled or Disabled on LEAD SELECTION of an record or to enable the button by default .

4) Display Area : Area where the button has to be placed

5) Position : States the order of the Button where it Is to be placed in an order

6) Enabled : Enables the Button

7) How to change the type of the LAYOUT in an WD Component dynamically

DATA : LT_MAT_LAY TYPE REF TO CL_WD_MATRIX_LAYOUT.

DATA : LT_MAT_DATA TYPE REF TO CL_WD_MATRIX_DATA.

DATA: LT_MAT_HEAD TYPE REF TO CL_WD_MATRIX_HEAD_DATA.

DATA : LT TYPE REF TO CL_WD_LAYOUT_DATA.

DATA : LR_CONT TYPE REF TO cl_wd_TRANSPARENT_container .

LR_CONT ?= VIEW->GET_ELEMENT( ‘CONTENT_CONTAINER’ ).

  LT_MAT_HEAD = CL_WD_MATRIX_HEAD_DATA=>new_matrix_head_data( element = lr_cont ).

lr_cont->set_layout_data(  LT_MAT_HEAD ).


8) How to Deactivate a POWL Query

Go to POWL_QUERYR transaction.

Delete that entry for query you do not want.

Run POWL_D01 report for application id you want to hide.
