Hi Vineet,

find out my answer, rewards if useful

for POWL you need to create a new class with implemeting interface IF_POWL_FEEDER.

in method IF_POWL_FEEDER~GET_ACTIONS you need to write this code.

ls_actions-actionid = 'MATNR'.

ls_actions-cardinality = 'S'.

ls_actions-placement = 'B'.

ls_actions-enabled = 'X'.

ls_actions-placementindx = 3.

ls_actions-text =

cl_wd_utilities=>get_otr_text_by_alias( 'MMPUR_UI_MODEL/DSPMATERIALMASTER' ).

ls_actions-placementindx = 1.

ls_actions-text = text-001.

INSERT ls_actions INTO TABLE mt_actions.

you need to repeat above code if you want some more actions then.

c_action_defs[] = mt_actions[].

to Handle actions for those button:

for this you need to write following code in method IF_POWL_FEEDER~HANDLE_ACTION

CASE i_actionid.


    • Write Code what you want to do at click of that button.


in Above eg i have added one action and coresponding action handling.

hope this help you
