How to give alias to the PARAMETERS variable name presented on the screen?

Hello dear experts,

I usually use the web interface but there is this selection screen I have to do in classic client.

I have a question that cannot be answered in the ABAP Objects book.

Here it is:

when I write such a code for the Windows GUI:

PARAMETERS: my_logfi(255) type c, my_text(255) type c.

The screen presents the user with a form that has a "my_logfi" and "my_text" captions.

I wish I could use an alias such as "Please enter the name of the file: " instead of the silly variable name.

Is there a simple way to do it?

Thanks for the help and... points rewarded

Goto SE38, put in your program name and choose radiobutton 'Text Elements'. In tabstrip 'Selection Texts' you can maintain the Alias that is displayed onthe selection screen then.

Regards,

Michael
