Customise F4 ovs help, that can match with standard F4 screen


In my webdynpro application, the user need to enter a (valid) PO Number (a valid one in my case is, that has been created in last one month).

In the controller context, i created an attribute PO_NUMBER of type EBELN.

in the view, i created an inputField ui element and mapped to PO_NUMBER context attribute.

when i execute the application, the F4 help automatically available, as my context attribute is of type EBELN, and

by default, the 'Input Help Mode' is 'Automatic' and i can see that the 'Determined Input Help' is MEKK_C

the standard F4 help screen is really very nice, with several diffrent search options.

But in my requirement, on the F4 search results screen, not all PO numbers should be visible. only the PO Numbers that are that are created in last one week need to be displayed.

If i use OVS, then i need to do a lot of configuration work, so that an F4 screen similar to standard F4 screen should be created.

is there any way i can use standard F4 screen layout, but i pass my own set of POs (lt_select_list) as search result.

thanks in advance.

Let me try out other options..also..

Try to create a Z data element and have a search help exit forthat..Do the relevant coding in the SH exit.

Or try to use the OVS for this.

Can you also check this, In the MODIFYVIEW, try to get the node information (IF_WD_CONTEXT_NODE_INFO), I think we can deactivate the standard help for that attribute using code and try to set our own Value help to context attribute by passing the search help exit name.
