F4 Search Help for Characteristics

Dear Support

the current ValueHelp implementation supports the usage of standard SAP search help objects which is already a great feature to use.

It would be a real added value if the ValueHelp control supports the standard SAP F4 mechanism for characteristic objects as well (FM: CTMS_CHAR_VALUE_F4).

Hi Patrick,

thanks for your kind works, we always appreciate your feedback. :)

I think that functionality could be implemented in a separate template app for Neptune App Store, so then maintenance is easier and everyone can improve it.

Do you think this is something we can work on together ?   How would you expect the app to look like?  

Thanks and kind regards,


Hi Julian

Thank you for your fast feedback.

Whether it is an app or not I will let you (Neptune) decide. I initially have thought that you would kind of extend the current implementation of the F4 Dialog.  

Sure we can work on it together - maybe we can have a short call to discuss the collaboration approach? 

regarding the look I am not sure how to anwser this question... It should just look like the F4 search for characterisitic - a tree on the left hand side, descriptions on the right hand side... Something like this:


Hi Patrick,

sure.  I will send you a private message so that we can schedule a meeting.

Thanks and kind regards,
