additional field validation


for example - I have a table element and one of its coloums is of type TIME. The automatic field validation (only valid times allowed) is working fine, but now i need to check that only full and half hours are entered. So if the user enteres "11:11" in a row I want this input-cell to be displayed with a red border and a message to be displayed.

I can check and show a message, but how to highlight that special cell?

Can I assign additional value checks to a context node and how to do this?

Whats the best approach?

Thanks for any help,

Try going through this [link|editable ALV - how to throw an error message for a specific line & field; in which Andreas was trying to validate & highlight an ALV's cell with the same report_attribute_error_message.



CALL METHOD lo_message_manager->report_attribute_error_message
            message_text   = 'Sample message text'
            element        = lr_element " Reference of type if_wd_context_element to the cell u want to highlight
            attribute_name = ls_modified_cells-attribute. " The context attribute name to which the column of this cell is bound to
