Tooltip in WebDynpro ABAP ALV


I put a tooltip on every cell of my ALV Table.

I used this code:

DATA: lr_input_field TYPE REF TO cl_salv_wd_uie_input_field.
        CREATE OBJECT lr_input_field
            value_fieldname = lv_name_day.
        lr_input_field->set_tooltip_fieldname( lv_name_desc ).

Unfortunately my tooltip is not long enough. The shown tooltip text is only about 20 chars long.

When I try the tooltip on a "normal" InputField, the text can be longer.

Do you have any idea what to do?

Thanks a lot!

I just do the same things, what it is work for me. I think the problem is not about the length of tooltip, but the length of your field name ( lv_name_desc ).

Just check the length of your field name that you used as tooltip. Maybe the length of your tooltip field just around 20 characters.
