Using an ALV with Dynamic Context Nodes in Web Dynpro

By Raja Narayanan, Kaavian Systems

Create a Web Dynpro Component as ZZ_DYNAMIC_CONTEXT 


Declare the usage of the ALV component inside component ZZ_DYNAMIC_CONTEXT 


Create view MAIN_VIEW 


Declare the usage of the ALV component inside view MAIN_VIEW 


Create context element and layout for storing DDIC table entry. 

In the view MAIN_VIEW create a context node INPUT with an attribute TABLENAME of type string. 


Navigate to the layout tab and create the following elements: 

  • Group INPUTGROUP with caption text “Your Input”

  • A label and an inputfield for the context attribute TABLENAME.

  • Use text “Name of a DDIC table” for the label

  • Button SHOW with text “Show table” and action SHOW

  • View container UI element CONTAINER 

Now Your Layout look like this… 


Navigate into the event handler method ONACTIONSHOW of view MAIN_VIEW and write the following code 

*Node Info
 rootnode_info type ref to if_wd_context_node_info,
*Context Nodes
 dyn_node      type ref to if_wd_context_node,
 tabname_node  type ref to if_wd_context_node,
*String (for table name)
 tablename type string.
*get node info of context root node
 rootnode_info = wd_context->get_node_info( ).
*get the name of the table to be created.
 tabname_node = wd_context->get_child_node( name = 'INPUT' ).
 tabname_node->get_attribute( Exporting name = 'TABLENAME'
                              Importing value = tablename ).
 translate tablename to upper case.
*create sub node named TEST1 of structure (tablename)
   parent_info = rootnode_info
   node_name = tablename
   structure_name = tablename
   is_multiple = abap_true ).
DATA: stru_tab type ref to data.
  field-symbols: <tab> type table.
*Create Internal Table
create data stru_tab type table of (tablename).
assign stru_tab->* to <tab>.
*Get table content
select * from (tablename) into corresponding  fields of table <tab>.
*get  instance of new node
dyn_node = wd_context->get_child_node( name = tablename ).
*Bind Internal table to context node.
dyn_node->bind_table( <tab> ).
*instantiate alv component
data: l_ref_cmp_usage type ref to if_wd_component_usage.
l_ref_cmp_usage =   wd_this->wd_cpuse_alv( ).
if l_ref_cmp_usage->has_active_component( ) is initial.
  l_ref_cmp_usage->create_component( ).
*pass context node to alv
data: l_ref_interfacecontroller type ref to iwci_salv_wd_table .
l_ref_interfacecontroller =   wd_this->wd_cpifc_alv( ).
  l_ref_interfacecontroller->set_data( dyn_node ).

Navigate to the window and into tab window and embed view MAIN_VIEW into the window. Thereafter embed view TABLE of the ALV component into the ViewContainerUIelement CONTAINER


Create a Web Dynpro application for your Web Dynpro component. 

Activate your Web Dynpro component and execute.
