Procedure
Coltext : Determines the column header of the column. You should assign a value to this field if it does not have a Data Dictionary reference. LOOP AT i_fieldcat ASSIGNING . CASE <fs_fieldcat>-fieldname. when 'FULLTIMEEMPLOYEE'. -coltext = 'Fulltime'. ENDCASE. ENDLOOP. This will make the description of field FULLTIMEEMPLOYEE will appear as Fulltime in output. Checkbox: Making the particular field appear as checkbox in output if set. The checkbox cannot be modified by the user. LOOP AT i_fieldcat ASSIGNING <fs_fieldcat>. CASE <fs_fieldcat>-fieldname. when 'FULLTIMEEMPLOYEE'. -checkbox = 'X'. ENDCASE. ENDLOOP. Edit: Making the particular field as editable if set. LOOP AT i_fieldcat ASSIGNING <fs_fieldcat>. CASE <fs_fieldcat>-fieldname. when 'FULLTIMEEMPLOYEE'. -edit = 'X'. ENDCASE.

ENDLOOP. when 'ENO'. ENDLOOP. ENDCASE. You cannot justify the column header separately. CASE <fs_fieldcat>-fieldname. ENDCASE. . Just: Relevant only to fields of data type CHAR or NUMC. Nevertheless. when 'AGE'. CASE <fs_fieldcat>-fieldname. LOOP AT i_fieldcat ASSIGNING <fs_fieldcat>. <fs_fieldcat>-no_out = 'X'. <fs_fieldcat>-just = 'R'. -outputlen = '8'. ENDCASE. when 'FULLTIMEEMPLOYEE'.LOOP AT i_fieldcat ASSIGNING <fs_fieldcat>. Justifications: ? 'R': right justified ? 'L': left justified ? 'C': centered How the column header is justified. the ALV Grid Control color-codes the column as a key field and fixes this column during horizontal scrolling. LOOP AT i_fieldcat ASSIGNING <fs_fieldcat>. the ALV Grid Control allows you to directly hide key columns with NO_OUT. No_out: If you set this field. CASE <fs_fieldcat>-fieldname. In contrast to the SAP List Viewer. LOOP AT i_fieldcat ASSIGNING <fs_fieldcat>. you can leave the field set to its initial value. when 'AGE'. In this case. ENDLOOP. you must specify the desired field output length. If this field is set. Outputlen: Changing the particular field output length. ENDCASE. ? For fields without reference to the DDIC. CASE <fs_fieldcat>-fieldname. the ALV adopts the output length of the relevant domain. the column is available in the field selection and can be interactively selected by the user as a display field. Determines the column width of the field: ? If the field has a reference to the Data Dictionary. depends on how the column contents are justified. Key: Making a field as key field if set or non-key field if not set. -key = ' '. In change layout. The ALV displays the contents of hidden fields on the detail screen for a row in the grid control. ENDLOOP. the user can select the column and then make the field to appear in output. The order of the key columns in the ALV Grid Control can be modified interactively. you hide the relevant column in the list.

when 'GENDER'. Eventhough tooltip will appear other fields from field label/Coltext. ENDLOOP. the relevant field is not displayed on the list and cannot be shown interactively. the remaining numbers have the following meaning: ? x: color number ? y: intensified display on/off ? z: inverse display on/off LOOP AT i_fieldcat ASSIGNING <fs_fieldcat>. ENDLOOP. when 'SALARY'. ENDCASE. Tooltip: Determines the text to be used as the tool tip for the column. ENDCASE. it must not be specified as a sorting criterion). The field is only known in the field catalog. the ALV uses this field to calculate the total (this corresponds to the generic totals function in the toolbar. ENDLOOP. Now in the output. ENDLOOP. if tooltip is set. it will override the other values.ENDLOOP. Emphasize: If the field is set to 'X'. <fs_fieldcat>-emphasize = 'C411'. If tech is set for a field. <fs_fieldcat>-do_sum = 'X'. You should assign a value to this field if it does not have a Data Dictionary reference.) LOOP AT i_fieldcat ASSIGNING <fs_fieldcat>. The database table structure is as follows. <fs_fieldcat>-tech = 'X'. <fs_fieldcat>-TOOLTIP = 'Emp. LOOP AT i_fieldcat ASSIGNING <fs_fieldcat>. CASE <fs_fieldcat>-fieldname. . ENDCASE. (For example. Name'. Do_sum: If this field is set. Tech: If this field is set. CASE <fs_fieldcat>-fieldname. If it is set to 'Cxyz' (color code). when 'ENAME'. the user cannot even select the field in change layout. LOOP AT i_fieldcat ASSIGNING <fs_fieldcat>. when 'SALARY'. CASE <fs_fieldcat>-fieldname. the ALV uses a pre-defined color for highlighting the column. CASE <fs_fieldcat>-fieldname. Age field will come as Right-Justified. ENDCASE.
