Dynamic Datawindow row count on parent button

Dynamic Datawindow row count on parent button

Dynamic Datawindow row count on parent button


My situation is as below:

We are using pfc in our application. What all I want to do it, when we click on button (Inherited from object - writing code on parent button object) it should capture row count from the data window which is exists on the same window.

I am storing window, data window and button name in database.

window name- w_emp

datawindow name - d_emp

button name - b_emp

so when user click on button, I am retrieving those data and check if it's same window, data window and button exists which I am looking for.

If it is YES then I want to get row count of data window on button clicked event.


I don't want to use any hard coded logic for that like...

If windowname = 'w_emp' then
End if...

I want something like, where I can do the same thing with some line of code without doing if...else or case statement where I have to check for multiple conditions.

I am able to access window and data window name at button level.

string ls_window string ls_datawindow

datawindow ld_test

select window_name, datawindow_name into ls_window, ls_datawindow from table_name where button_name = 'b_emp';

ld_test.dataobject = parent.ls_datawindow // It is giving an error

I want to get datawindow row count which is coming from database

Make sure that I want to do at parent level where I can get request from entire application whenever user clicks on button. so I need dynamic logic for the same.
