In what method of the component the F4 action is being called for a attribute?

Hi All,

I am facing a issue when combining the values from a search help defined in the dictionary and freely programmed input values.

  1. I have a search help mapped to my attribute like below.

The issues is that I need this search help to be called only in some pre- established conditions not in all cases.

2. I have also a method that has the below code and is being called when loading up the view.(inside method SET_INIT_DATA)

According to the below logic the values for the help should be retained in lt_value.

Now I want to call either the values in lt_value or the dictionary search help depending on what user has chosen on the previous view.

Can someone advise me if is possible to combine these two options of having search helps?

If yes, do you know the method where the dictionary search help is being called as the ABAP Dictionary search help is integrated completely into Web Dynpro runtime and requires no further implementation?

Your help is much appreciated.

Best regards,
