| 18 Finding a searchhelp name
When you define your own InputField, you can refer to SAP standard matchcode with the techname=”…” parameter.
How do you get the technical field name, e.g. “MARA-IDNRA”?
In some cases the search help for the InputField does not work with this field name. The reason is that, in SAPs data dictionary, some fields are not linked to a search help, and GuiXT’s functionality is based on data dictionary information.
You then have to define the name of the search help directly with the searchhelp=”…” parameter of the InputField statement, instead of using techname=”…”.
But how do you find the right search help? Transaction SE11 (data dictionary) lists them all, but it might be hard to find the right one. Here we describe an alternative way to get the search help, using ABAP debugging information.
