Code Snippet Series: Open a Search Help Programmatically

This post is part of a series on code snippets. The complete list of posts in the series is available in the document Code Snippets: A Blog Series.

It’s possible to open a search help programmatically, e.g., in the action handler of a Button. This technique can be useful in various scenarios, most notably in search help input to a read-only InputField.

wd_this->wd_get_api( )->get_component( )->get_window_manager( )->open_value_help(
  search_term   = |Search Help Title|
  view          = wd_this->wd_get_api( )
  event_handler = 'EVENT_HANDLER_METHOD'
  structure     = NEW ddic_structure( field1 = value1 field2 = value2 ) " search help importing parameters
  fieldname     = 'STRUCTURE_FIELD_NAME'
  multi_select  = abap_true " default is abap_false
