ABAP Test Cockpit and GUI status

Dear community, recently I used ABAP Test Cockpit (ATC) to check an old report. The selection screen of the report uses an own GUI Status. To my surprise, ATC reported two errors:

  1. BC-ABA-LA / CL_CI_TEST_USAB_GUI / TEXV-231 (something like “suggestion text was not replaced”).
  2. BC-ABA-LA / CL_CI_TEST_USAB_GUI / PFKR-214 (something like “standard function is bound to wrong function key”).

Bam! As I said before, I was really surprised. Unfortunately there were no further details. But the friendly hint that there is neither a pseudo comment nor a pragma to deactivate the messages. I love that 😉

Basically you could say: It’s an old report. So it doesn’t matter. But what about when the ATC test result decides whether something can be transported into production system?

Well, I spend some time to check. Since the cause had to be the GUI status, I examined this development object. After a while I discovered the “ergonomics check” function in the “check” menu. What a joy! There was a lot more information about the cause and options to solve. So I was able to fix the errors. Just had to enter a text and change the function key of a function.

Then, to my surprise, I got an interesting dynpro area warning. Joachim Rees wrote about that warning in question and answers section (thanks to him for his effort).

Well, some days you’re just out of luck 😉



Best regards, thanks for reading and stay healthy
