Getting Row Number in a table

I have a table with editable input fields with 5 columns. I have used an event (if we press ENTER) for the input field in all columns. The event is getting triggered. Its fine. But say ex: I have pressed ENTER on column 08 , Row 3, then how to capture that row/cell ?

In short how to capture the row number on pressing ENTER on a cell of a table ?

Hi Manjunath,

Below is the solution to try capture the row number & column name of the cell in which the user has pressed enter upon.

Say suppose I have only 2 columns in my table with ID's C1 & C2. (So I also have only 2 attributes "ONE" & "TWO" under the node "NODE" which am using to bind to the table.) In the WDDOINIT method I bind an internal table with all default values to the table.

method WDDOINIT .
  data: lr_node type ref to if_wd_context_node,
        lt_node type ig_componentcontroller=>elements_node,
        wa_node type ig_componentcontroller=>element_node.

lr_node = wd_context->get_child_node( name = 'NODE' ).

do 5 times.
  wa_node-one = '0'.
  wa_node-two = '0'.
  append wa_node to lt_node.

lr_node->bind_table( new_items = lt_node ).

Now coming to the main part i.e, handling the enter action of the user.

DATA: lr_element TYPE REF TO if_wd_context_element,
      lv_column_name type string,
      lv_row_number type i value 0.

  lr_element = wdevent->get_context_element( name = 'CONTEXT_ELEMENT' ).

  lv_column_name = wdevent->get_string( name = 'ID' ).

  lv_row_number = lr_element->get_index( ).


Now in the end lv_column_name would come up with the column name i.e, C1/C2 and lv_row_number would contain the position of the cell number under that particular column. Hope that this helps meet your desired task.
